President’s message

Welcome to the San Clemente Rotary Club, an organization made up of business, professional and civic leaders with a passion to perform community and international service while enjoying fellowship and fun. Come and meet our members and enjoy a presentation by local government representatives, non-profit leaders, and distinguished members of our community.

This year our local community projects include: volunteering to distribute food to active duty Military families, infantry trainees, or San Clemente families in participation with local non-profits; awarding scholarships to local children in need; managing grant funding for a medical clinic in Guatemala; and raising/donating funds to support local organizations like the Boys & Girls Club of the South Coast Area, Family Assistance Ministries, Special Spokes, Community Outreach Alliance, i-5 Freedom Network, and the Wellness & Prevention Center (to name a few). 

All of this is also part of Rotary International, an organization of 1.4 million members around the world, and a global network of like-minded individuals who bear the motto of Rotary, Service Above Self.

I would love to hear from you.

Robert Burns, President
