What does the Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary Club do?
 
The simple answer:
We are ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
 
The long answer: 
We are a local, non-denominational, 501(c)3 organization with a world-wide reach and the number one goal of serving others.
We are a group of professionals, business owners, wives, husbands, mothers, fathers, grandparents, etc., who volunteer our time and efforts to make a difference in the North Orange County community, as well as globally.

Upcoming Events
The Covid 19 pandemic has caused our club to cancel our major fundraiser for the past two years.  Our members have been extremely generous in supporting our projects during this time and we continue to support all of these worthy causes.  If you would like to help us support these causes, please click here to donate now.  With your help we can overcome the obstacles created by a worldwide pandemic and continue to make our community and our world a better place through Rotary.  Your support is greatly appreciated and we look forward to seeing you again next May when Lobsterfest returns!

Stories of Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary making a difference!
Hello and good day from all of us at Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary!
 
Earlier this year, we made the tough decision to postpone our 2021 Lobsterfest, normally held in May, until later in the year to October. We regret to inform you that this event planned for October 9 has been cancelled. The decision was made due to the size of the event, restrictions in place throughout the year and simply out of an abundance of caution for our valued patrons in attendance.
 
We have every intention to proceed back on schedule this coming May of 2022. 
 
Please mark your calendars for Saturday, May 21, 2022 when we intend to make up for lost time and get back to hosting the biggest party of the year in Yorba Linda…Lobsterfest!

Thank you for your continued support!

Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary donates $50,000 toward the Misting Rock and Children's Area of the new Yorba Linda Library!  The check was presented at the Dedication Ceremony for Yorba Linda Library and Cultural Arts Center on Friday evening, November 13, 2020.  Here's a picture of the plaque posted on the Misting Rock, the heart of the Paseo between the library and the cultural arts buildings.
Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary financially supported this small school in Las Pinas, Philippines located in a high poverty area hard hit by COVID 19.  Hotspots and tablets enable students to access education despite schools being shut down.
