The Rotary Club of Goleta supports the community in a variety of projects, and supporting local youths is one of its top priorities.
Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting.
Each year, Interact clubs complete at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of developing leadership skills and personal integrity, demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others, understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work, and advancing international understanding and goodwill.
The Rotary Club of Goleta meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at the Elephant Bar Restaurant, 521 Firestone Road in Goleta. If you would like to learn more about Rotary and become an active member of our community, we invite you to visit our dinner meetings and meet some very dedicated men and women, enjoy fellowship, interesting meetings and a great dinner.
— Lynn Cederquist is publicity chairwoman of the Rotary Club of Goleta.
