President’s Message

It is with distinct pleasure that I welcome you to The Rotary Club of Beverly Hills, the Garden Spot of the world. Rotary is where neighbors, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders and take action to create lasting change. We support local and international projects to promote peace, fight disease, homelessness and hunger, promote education and provide clean water wells, just to name a few.

We presently meet every Monday at noon via Zoom until we are able to return to the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel, our home since 1924. Our club consists of all those who are civic-minded individuals who are leaders in their industry. The one thing we all have in common is our desire to help those in need and support our community.

As a result of COVID 19, my term did not start as I had planned, however, I am so proud of the way our club has stepped up and performed as only Rotarians do; with strength, creativity, perseverance, and a love for our fellow beings! Through the generosity of our members, our Rotary Charitable Foundation Fund provides over $150,000 to local charities as well as tens of thousands of dollars to our international charities per year. We coordinate, plan, and participate in various service projects on a local and global level. As always, we follow the Four-Way Test with honor.

I am thrilled to serve the Rotary Club of Beverly Hills along with our distinguished members and feel fortunate for this opportunity.

Please join me as we work together to strengthen our Club and community, the Rotarian way, UNITED AS ONE as we continue to provide service above self!
