Latest News
The "Shelter-in-Place" order now makes it impossible for us to meet in person, but we have been enjoying online, "virtual" meetings that include scheduled speakers!  Attendance has been good and we plan to continue this format until we are able to meet in person once again.
 
In order to accomplish this, we use the online teleconferencing service "Zoom". Each week, members receive an e-mail from Club Secretary, Horst Rademacher, with instructions on how to join the upcoming meeting, including the requisite meeting ID and password. Members can join video conferencing from their computer or via phone.
 
Upcoming speakers/events include: July 8: Prof. Henry Brady, Dean of UC Berkeley's Goldman School of Public Policy on the 2020 Election; July 15: Prof. John Harte of UC Berkeley's Department of Energy and Resources will speak about "Breaking and Restoring Our Life Support Systems; July 22: Dr. Larry Souza, St. Mary's College discusses the potential economic impact of the 2020 election; July 29: Clinical Prof. Emeritus John Swartzberg of UC Berkeley's School of Public Health provides information on staying healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
 
Acting quickly in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in support of those on the front lines of treating the virus, Orinda Rotary members raised $5,000 to deliver much-needed washable and reusable medical gowns for staff serving at local hospitals. With an additional $1,000 from the Orinda Rotary Endowment, we delivered over 500 gowns.  As a supplemental benefit, gowns were sewn by a local tailor, helping to keep his shop going during the economic downturn.
