Being a member of the Rotary Club in Puerto Peñasco guarantees you many opportunities to roll up your sleeves and get busy!!! You may find yourself administering medicine to dogs and cats in order to prevent rickettsia or you may find yourself working side by side with other Rotarians to paint handicapped accessibility sports on the Malecon. No matter what needs the community has…Rotarians are present to help!

As I have said so many times before, Puerto Peñasco is very fortunate to have a Rotary Club working on its behalf. As all of you know visitors love our little community and so do many Rotarians. Several Rotary Clubs join hands and efforts with our club to do all kinds of service projects!

Recently we were visited by Octavio Sanchez Ramonetti, he is our District Governor and resides in Ensenada. Our club was able to shore and show him some of the projects we are working to complete or have completed.

In 2024 we will host a large event expecting 1000+ participants from all over Mexico and the United States. This District Conference Event will be an opportunity to showcase Puerto Peñasco and introduce our community to many first-time visitors. Several activities will be planned, and we are going to need many volunteers to pull this off. After all, you often get one opportunity to make a lasting impression…If you think this is something you would like to help with, let me know. In the meantime, think about joining Rotary and demonstrating, “Service above self…a great way to live”.
