Welcome To The Hayward Rotary Club!
Hayward Rotary Club is a non-partisan, non-political service organization. Our members are leaders in business, education, government, nonprofit, and community service. Rotarians come from many diverse walks of life, and we are united in giving back to our community. Hayward Rotary Club and Foundation have contributed millions of dollars of support to vital projects and programs that build a stronger future for Hayward and the world. Do you want to give back to the community in an organized way, in the company of distinguished community leaders? Do you have what it takes to become a Hayward Rotary Club member? Find out by attending our weekly luncheons, by talking to Rotarians, and by browsing this website. Learn more
The US Center for Disease Control reports that in 2019, hospital emergency rooms recorded three million visits by older adults due to falls. With falls as the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among older adults, the medical costs amount to $50 billion annually, most of that paid by Medicare or Medicaid.
At the Hayward Rotary Club meeting on Nov. 27, May Funabiki of Spectrum Community Services will discuss how the local organization has developed popular programs - such as "A Question of Balance" -  to help manage concerns about falls and improve flexibility, balance and strength. She will be joined by Spectrum's executive director Lara Calvert and the pair will have Rotarians join them in some movements to practice to improve balance. 
Founded in 1971, Spectrum is a registered, private non-profit organization that assists low-income individuals, families, and seniors in their efforts to live independently. It has funding relationships and partnerships with more than two dozen agencies and cities. Its board of directors includes Hayward Rotarian Marion Sanchez.
The supervisor for Sulphur Creek Nature Center will bring examples of wildlife that the education and rehabilitation facility works with when she is the featured presenter at the luncheon meeting of the Hayward Rotary Club on Monday, Dec. 4. Deb Varner of the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District has a long history with the creekside forested facility, created in 1970 at 1801 D St., and that draws sulphur water from springs. 
HARD calls the facility, "a hidden oasis tucked into the Hayward Hills." It features local wildlife on display, a discovery center, educational programs, a wildlife hospital, volunteer opportunities, and activities designed to connect people and nature.

In the fall of 2023, the Bay Philharmonic moved its orchestral performance venue to the 1,500-seat Chabot College Performing Arts Center in Hayward, where its first concert in October was met with wide acclaim. Conductor Jung-Ho Pak, described by the New York Times as a director who "radiates enthusiasm" will discuss the move and review the upcoming performance schedule as featured speaker when the Hayward Rotary Club meets for its noon luncheon on Monday, Nov. 13.
Since 2006, Pak has been artistic director and conductor of the Cape Symphony in Massachusetts and, prior to that, similar positions with Orchestra Nova, the New Haven Symphony, and the San Diego Symphony. 
In addition to bringing Rotarians up-to-date on symphony developments, Pak will encourage members to attend the Dec. 17, 3 p.m., holiday performance what will celebrate cultures and traditions from around the world. In addition to the full orchestra, the concert will include performances by the San Francisco Girls Chorus, Yoko's Academy of Dance, and Ballet Folklorico Mexico Deanza. 
Cal State East Bay kinesiology Prof. Becky Beal will lead a presentation on "The Culture of Skateboarding" at the noon Monday meeting of the Hayward Rotary Club on Nov. 6. 
The presentation will include a demonstration of skateboarding tricks by Ashley Masters, Bay Area director of the Skate Like a Girl organization, a nonprofit that also has offices in Portland and Seattle. In the unlikely case where Hayward Rotarians still have the skateboard of their youth, they are invited to bring them. 
Prof. Beal's research interests are on issues of social justice in sport and physical activity and has researched the cultural and political dynamics of skateboarding for more than 20 years. Her work explores the relationship of the cultural industries with "action sports" such as skateboarding and surfing.
Masters is a longtime skateboarder and youth and fitness coach with more than 10 years instructing skateboarding and working with youth sports.
