Rotary is an organization of business people who volunteer their time, talents, friendship, and funds to better the community they live in through their local Rotary Club, and to better the rest of the world through Rotary International. For example, Rotary International is the prime force in the effort to eradicate polio worldwide. As an organization Rotary has over 1.3 million members worldwide.
Each Rotary club has a personality and Mission San Rafael Club boasts a ‘renowned’ Kazoo Band, the development of Rotary Island, and, capping it off, origination of Project Tooth Fairy.
Join us for lunch and see what Rotary at Mission San Rafael is like. We serve with fun. Our luncheon meetings feature speakers from the community on topics of interest to all who live here.
If you have questions contact the Club President.

San Rafael Evening Club celebrated their Club Charter Event on June 12 and Mission San Rafael Rotary is the sponsoring club. The party was well attended with a fun Mardi Gras theme, and dressing in costume was encouraged. It was a fun evening with over 80 people registered for the event! Two of our members have chosen to transfer to the new club, Terri Carrillo as well as Emily Perez. We wish them well with their transfer, and expect their experience and energy will be a great asset to San Rafael Evening. Hope to see them for a makeup at our club soon!!
The San Rafael Evening Club meets on Thursday every other week. They have a meet up page > San Rafael Evening check it out!
Kids Against Hunger
December 7, 2013: Under the sponsorship and organizing efforts of the Rotary Club of Mission San Rafael and the Rotary Club of San Rafael Harbor, 149 people from the ages of 7 to 82 worked together for a total of just under 4 hours to pack 26,000 meals destined for the San Francisco & Marin Food Banks. Participants came from 13 Marin & San Francisco Rotary Clubs, the Novato Rotaract Club, the San Rafael, Terra Linda and Redwood High School Interact Clubs, 2 Junior Girl Scout Troops as well as 4 friends of Rotarians.
Work Day at Halleck Creek Ranch
Recently, members from the Rotary Clubs of Mission San Rafael, San Rafael Evening, San Francisco Evening and San Francisco #2 worked together for a day of maintenance and clean-up at Halleck Creek Ranch in Nicasio, California. Our To-Do List include everything from providing scaffolding so our younger members could climb up high to stain the upper sides of the ranch office building.
Recently several members of our club joined members of the newly formed San Rafael Evening club in sorting and packing donated books. These books will join other previously-packed books in a large container waiting to be shipped to Lebanon for the Libraries For Peace project. LFPP was created by Aref Ahmadia, another San Rafael Rotarian whose own childhood in Lebanon taught him the importance of education.
Carolers - R - Us !!
OK, it's not exactly a White Christmas here in sunny California!! But still: For the second time, MSRR club members sang for the members of Senior Access' Wilfred George Adult Day Center in Terra Linda as well as residents of Rafael Convalescent Nursing Home. We were joined by members of the Rotary Club of Terra Linda. To help us sound a tiny bit better, we were lead by Yohann Anderson on guitar and Roger on harmonica, without whom we would have sounded like Santa's Elves on Dramamine. This year, we also had a surprise visit from Father Christmas!
The pictures don't do the afternoon justice! Our mission was to bring holiday joy and light to people and to join each other in Rotary Fellowship. It seems we accomplished both!
