We are looking for you!
Oakmont has residents from every walk of life and residents are able to make new friends and possibly experience new sports and/or activities. Oakmont is a “community” where people pass each other with a wave and a smile, some walking (bigger smiles and waves if you’re walking your dog), riding bikes, driving golf carts, tooling in your classic car, or jogging. It’s a different vibe living in Oakmont rather than living downtown or in the ‘burbs’ where folks hardly ever know their neighbors or stop to say ‘hello’. However, sometimes a resident might not be into golf, tennis, pickleball, dancing, or bridge. Maybe they’re not sure what they would enjoy doing. If possibly that’s the way you’re feeling Rotary might be a good match for you.
The Valley of the Moon Rotary club (VOM) meets once a week and there is something for everyone in Rotary. Maybe you’re a leader who knows how to head up a committee, or maybe you’re one who likes being involved in that committee, but not lead it. Maybe you’re an idea person. Rotary is a great place to be heard, a place where you can speak up! Valley of the Moon Rotary covers almost all of the bases a person could ask for in order to live a fulfilled life. We all have stories and this is a great, warm place to share them.
In the last several years, the Valley of the Moon Rotary club has commissioned ArtStart to decorate 15 lovely benches all over Oakmont (and we clean them at least once a year for those who might need a little respite from their walk). VOM members have helped build sorely needed wooden desks for children who are schooling from home and have no workspace. The club helps support Oakmont groups such as Visual Aids, Grandparents Club and Oakmont Volunteers. Locally, in Sonoma County, the club donates to the Santa Rosa Symphony, Redwood Empire Food Bank, Hearing Loss Association of America, Rincon Valley Union School District, Sierra Garden, Women’s Recovery Service (WRS), The Living Room, Child Parent Institute (CPI), 10,000 Degrees, and more.
Nothing is more important right now than our service clubs, all of which distribute funds to needy causes, not just around the world, but more importantly right here in our own community. We invite you to join us at one of our meetings and see what we’re all about. We have coffee and pastries and we always have great speakers on a wide range of subjects. We meet most Thursday mornings at 8 a.m. at the Oakmont East Rec Center. The best part is we all really like each other, so many of us arrive early so we can spend a bit of time socializing.
