Welcome to the Rotary District 5180 Website!

Rotary is a leadership organization made up of local business, professional, and other community members. Rotary District 5180 has about 40 clubs and encompasses the Sacramento, Sutter, Yuba County with parts of Butte, El Dorado, Placer, and Yolo counties.

We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships, and through that, we’re able to help our communities to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, and promote peace under the motto Service Above Self. 
 


 

 

Governor's Message 

November 2018
 
Dear Rotarians, 

On my way to church this morning, my family and I commented on how beautiful its here in the foothills when the leaves start to change and fall to the ground. It is my favorite season. I love the cooler temps and the sounds and smells of the football.  
 
Thanksgiving is just around the corner...it is my favorite holiday.  
For me, Thanksgiving is a celebration and season of gratitude and sharing. It represents the one time of the year when I can count on my soul being truly at peace. I love what the holiday signifies, It always makes me feel charitable and appreciative for the abundance which surrounds us here in this region. 

As I took in the incredible fall scenes on the country roads, I reflected on how lucky I am to have found Rotary and how much I appreciate all the sacrifices that are made each day by Rotarians all over the district to help others, Do you ever have those thoughts where you just instantly feel better and your heart just softens? That happened to me this morning, and it was because of all of you. 
November 3rd is our Foundation dinner. It is a night where we get an opportunity to celebrate together and recognize those who so generously contribute to the Foundation. Our Foundation helps Rotarians assist those less fortunate all over the planet. The Foundation could not exist without the contribution by Rotarians in our district and throughout the world. 
 
I ask each of you in this our Foundation month, to make sure to say “thank you” to all those who lead our clubs and our district. Thank the people who pay the bills and set up the club meetings. Thank those who make our clubs stronger by serving as board and district officers, and those who organize and chair committees.  

We should also thank each other for the work we do as a group to raise funds so we can do the many successful projects that make our community a better place. All our clubs have projects that focus on providing opportunities to the youth. Our goal is that these young people will be the Rotarians of the future. 
 
Let’s “Be The Inspiration” this month by being grateful to each other for all the sacrifices we make together to make life better for those less fortunate than us! 
 
Yours in Rotary,

District 5180 Human Trafficking Project

"It doesn't happen here".  This is the most common response when someone mentions sex trafficking in our area.  But the Sacramento region is considered to be a hotbed for sex trafficking in the United States with California recording the highest volume of what many call "modern-day slavery."  With the recent approval of a significant, ground-breaking grant from The Rotary Foundation, Rotary District 5180 is stepping up to work with local agencies and governments to combat this problem through prevention efforts.

Working with clubs throughout the district, we will fund an education and a public awareness campaign with approximately $340,000 in combined grant and local funding.   The vision is to create a sustainable large-scale project in the Sacramento region to fight human trafficking.  The goal is to create a project that can be replicated globally through Rotary's over 1.2 million membership network of 35,000 clubs worldwide.
