 CLUB ACTIVITIES



The following is a list of past and existing activities. Links to these activities are in the photo albums that show the history of The Rotary Club of Almaden Valley.
  • Charlie Wedemeyer All Star Football Game
    Each summer the best football players who have graduated from the Santa Clara County high schools are chosen to play in this prestiguous gridiron contest. Fun for the whole family. Proceeds from the game are donated to many local charities and international projects.

  • Almaden Valley Art and Wine Festival
    Each September we man a booth to show our presence in the Almaden Valley. In the past we served the best Polish and/or Italian sausages for those attendees of an Almaden event which features good food, wine and art in the fresh air and sunshine. In the recent past years, we served root beer floats and more recently, we served Chef Chu Chicken Salads.

  • Bowl-A-Thon
    Fill out your pledge sheets and enjoy a Spring afternoon of free bowling. The better you bowl, the more the fun and the more the contributions to your favorite charities. This activity has not occurred for several years and was a way to raise some funds and join with our Interact clubs who also participated.

  • Cambrian Oktoberfest
    An October event that was previously in August featuring great beers served to folks enjoying a variety of arts and crafts. BBQ and free live music. Pony rides and petting zoo provide fun for the children. We enjoyed this activity until they canceled the event.

  • District 5170 Conference
    Members and spouses enjoy fellowship in April with members from other clubs in the District. Interesting speakers, seminars, and partying are enjoyed by all.

  • Golf Tournament
    An annual event which occurred in September and was co-sponsored by the Almaden Valley Rotary Club and Youth Focus. It included a day of golf at Cinnabar Hills Golf Course and dinner and raffles during the evening with proceeds allocated to Youth Focus and other local charities.

  • Kids Fishing Day
    A weekend in May, a local reservoir is stocked with fish and opened only to children for a fun two days of catching fish and winning prizes.

  • Rotary International Convention
    You embark on an experience that will inspire you, inform you about Rotary on an international level, and provide you with resources and motivation to move your club forward.
