The Lynwood Rotary Club was chartered in 1936: Club members and officers devote time and money to activities that benefit young people, senior citizens, and those in need. The Club undertakes projects independently or in collaboration with other organizations. We support students from Lynwood High School and Hosler Middle School through the Interact and Youthact clubs that are part of Rotary international's Youth Service projects.

Lynwood Rotary Club's Focus Activities: In addition to a full schedule of educational programs and social activites, Lynwood Rotary Club is committed to the highest levels of community service.

Community and Vocational Service:

SCHOLARSHIPS: Every year Lynwood Rotary Club provides scholarships to students at Lynwood high School and other deserving students in the community.

INTERACT CLUB: Lynwood High School

YOUTHACT CLUB: Hosler Middle School

Interact and Youthact clubs are like mini-Rotary clubs. They work with our support and guidance and conduct their meetings and community work just like we do. On an average they have about 50 members, who receive first-hand experience in leadership and community work at a very young age.

DISASTER AID: When disasters occur, our club steps forward to help those in need.

POLICE AND FIRE DEPARTMENT RECOGNITION: Recipients chosen by Lynwood Fire Fighters and Police Officers are honored and awarded at a special ceremony organized by our club.

SPEECH AND ART AWARDS: We sponsor students from Lynwood High School to the District Speech and Art contests, where they can win recognition and exciting prizes.

LITERACY: Donation of books to local elementary schools through district literacy program. Rotarians read to children in Lynwood elementary schools.

INTERNATIONAL SERVICE: From time to time we participate in International literacy projects to help provide free education to needy children around the world.

COME JOIN US FOR LUNCH ANY THURSDAY FROM 12 NOON TILL 1.30 PM AND BECOME A PART OF THIS LIFE-CHANGING COMMUNITY WORK

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...
Member spotlight: Peak performer scales Kilimanjaro
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian When Carole Kimutai was growing up in Nairobi, family members were always coming for long stays – a grandparent one month, a cousin the next. "Anyone who needed school fees would come to Nairobi, and my parents would assist," she says. "Or if my grandmother was sick, she would come to live with us until she was better. It was natural to help others." Years later, Kimutai was invited to a meeting of the Rotary Club of Nairobi-East, where she instantly felt at home. "I grew up seeing my parents help relatives, and now I am seeing people help quote-...
Convention: Hear the music
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian Chances are, you’ve heard of Psy and his signature song, “Gangnam Style.” He’s the Korean pop star with dark sunglasses and a distinctive galloping horse dance who was everywhere a few years ago, including on a This Close ad for End Polio Now. But what you might not know is that Psy is merely the tip of the colossal iceberg known as K-pop, short for Korean pop. If you plan to attend the 2016 Rotary International Convention in Seoul from 28 May to 1 June, you won’t have to search for K-pop – you’ll hear it in the streets, in cafes, in taxis, and on...
Member interview: Jay Cook helps young people through Rotary Youth Exchange
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian A Rotarian for nearly three decades, Jay Cook has helped hundreds of young people broaden their horizons through Rotary Youth Exchange. Recently, while working for the nonprofit Water Missions International, he’s turned his attention to bringing safe water and sanitation solutions to developing countries and disaster-stricken areas. Cook is a member of the Rotary Club of Charleston Breakfast and the Water and Sanitation Rotarian Action Group. THE ROTARIAN: How did you become involved with Rotary Youth Exchange? COOK: My club was hosting a young...
Technology: To please in a pod(cast)
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian When I was a college student in Wisconsin in the 1970s, those of us who worked at the 10-watt radio station hoped our signal would reach not only the 1,500 students on the Beloit College campus and the 35,000 residents of the town of Beloit but also the people in the cars and trucks passing by on the interstate 3 miles to the east – and possibly, late at night, the 150,000 who lived in the bustling metropolis of Rockford, Ill., 20 miles to the south. Some of us hoped to get jobs in radio after we graduated, and there was even talk about starting...
