The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke recently celebrated its annual “Passing of the Gavel” ceremony, where the past president, Doug May, “passed the gavel” to the incoming president, Barbara Barr. Barbara has been a powerhouse Rotarian for many years, and we are excited to begin the new year with her at the helm! The assistant governor of Rotary district 5500, Mary Strauss, was there to celebrate the occasion and announced that the club will be receiving an award to be presented at the district conference. The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke continues to grow its membership and positively impacts our local community year after year. Come join us for lunch, and learn how you can get involved to start truly making a difference in your local community!

The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke meets weekly and has an array of fascinating programs and speakers on many different topics. We welcome the community to come learn with us. We post our speakers and programs in advance so that community members can visit and enjoy learning with us. Sometimes, community members like to join us for lunch (we begin ordering about 11:15 a.m.), while other times they just visit for the program, which usually begins around 12:20 p.m.

The award-winning Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke is packed with energetic volunteers of all ages who come together as friends to assist area schools, our community and international philanthropies. Rotary is open to those who are retired or work in SaddleBrooke, SaddleBrooke Ranch and surrounding communities. If this sounds like something of interest to you, come join us for lunch on Thursday at the SaddleBrooke One Clubhouse. If you are interested in our programs and speakers, we always welcome the community to come learn with us! For more information, contact Wendy Guyton at 520-404-5712 or [email protected]
