Welcome to the Rotary Club of Pasadena, California

The 2024-2025 Rotary International theme is “The Magic of Rotary,” chosen by our Rotary International President, Dr. Stephanie Urchick. Her vision is to make every club irresistible by fostering a sense of belonging through inclusivity and change. Our mission is to transform the club experience to help every member feel they truly belong. We are actively seeking feedback from current and prospective members to ensure we meet their expectations and needs. 

Our Pasadena Rotary Action Plan offers tools to gather feedback, assess strengths, identify areas for improvement, and address challenges. In a constantly changing world, strategic and specific changes are essential. We aim to work towards a greater vision with our Action Plan, ensuring continuity and effective change within our club. Expanding our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is crucial. Everyone with a heart for service belongs in Pasadena Rotary, and we encourage embracing future members who may not fit the typical mold.

Peacebuilding is a top priority for Rotary International. Our Rotary Peace Fellowship, a product of the Rotary Foundation, empowers peace and development professionals to prevent and end conflict. This program, offered through Rotary Peace Centers at leading universities worldwide, has graduated over 1,800 Peace Fellows working in over 140 countries. Our progress in peacebuilding over the past 25 years is truly magical. Additionally, we are on the brink of eradicating polio—a monumental achievement!

Pasadena Rotary has launched an Impact Club for those unable to attend regular lunches but eager to contribute. These dedicated members are the doers, driving many of our essential service projects in the city.

I am honored to serve as your President this year. Let’s continue our legacy as the premier service club in Pasadena, a tradition spanning over a century. Please reach out to me at president@pasadenarotary.com with any questions.

Together, we create magic through service.

Stephen Smith
