Welcome to the Rotary Club of Palo Alto!  “Engage Rotary, Change Lives” is the motto we share with Rotary International, during 2013-2014 year.


Fellowship, service and fun are hallmarks of our Club.  Our weekly lunch meetings are highlighted by entertaining, thoughtful speakers who cap off an opportunity to interact with your professional, business and community peers in a warm, friendly environment.

Palo Alto Rotarians Receive High Honors


Annette Glanckopf

Community service has a champion. In January 2014, State Senator Jerry Hill honored Annette for her efforts in organizing the Palo Alto Neighborhoods (PAN) association, and for her commitment to disaster preparedness. The 13th Senate District Community Champion award is given to residents who have "gone the extra mile" to serve their communities and bring people together, Hill's office said.


John Barton

Add a new Tall Tree to our Rotary family.  John is being recognized as the 2012 Outstanding Professional for his extensive contributions to the community as an architect and business person.  The Palo Alto Tall Tree awards, co-sponsered by the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce and Palo Alto Weekly, recognizes citizens and organizations for their community work.
