Orinda Rotary offers in-person meetings that include scheduled speakers! Our in-person meetings are held in the Founder's Auditorium at the Orinda Community Center and include no-host hot lunches. You must be fully vaccinated (two vaccinations and a booster) in order to attend in-person. Because of the increase in COVID cases, masks are encouraged when not actively eating/drinking.  We trust that you will follow the Rotary 4-Way Test and adhere to our policy. Social gathering starts at noon and the meetings begin promptly at 12:30 PM.  Click here to let our caterer, Leslie, know if you plan to attend in person and have lunch (cost is $25 per person)! 
We also use the online teleconferencing service "Zoom" for those who prefer to attend virtually. Each week, members receive an e-mail from Club President, Clay Deanhardt 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. Non-members interested in participating in our meeting(s) may contact President Clay to request the Zoom link.
Upcoming speakers: Elaine Kociolek, the Adult Literacy Program Manager for Contra Costa County Library, and the lead for Rotary's Project Second Chance talks about this successful adult literacy program; Wednesday, September 27: Heather Matthews, Director of Communications at Huckleberry Youth Programs; Wednesday, October 4: Our own Horst Rademacher will tell us about the upcoming annular "ring of fire" solar eclipse coming on Saturday, October 14.
Additional Upcoming Events and Programs:  Friday, September 22: Monthly volunteer outing to the Contra Costa Food Bank (see story above); Saturday, October 21: Annual Tom Fitch Fishing Day at the San Pablo Reservoir for the Boys and Girls Club of Oakland (more details to come).
