What Is Rotary?

The Moorpark Morning Rotary Club is a group of business leaders, educators, non-profit leaders and civic professionals who meet regularly and perform charity and community service in Moorpark.  People join our club for networking opportunities, fellowship, friendship and to do more to serve their local community and the world.

If this sounds like something you are interested in, please contact us and join us for a meeting! We encourage potential members to try a few meetings and make sure our club is the right fit for you before discussing membership.

Weekly Rotary Meetings

Our club meetings are every Thursday from 7:00 a.m. to 8:15 a.m.  We traditionally meet at Lucky Fools Pub, the Irish Pub and Restaurant located in Historic Downtown Moorpark near the corner of Moorpark Avenue and High Street. Currently we are rotating between in person meetings and Zoom calls. Each in person meeting includes delicious breakfast and all meetings feature a guest speaker.

Service Projects

Moorpark Morning Rotary Club performs at least one community service project a month. These are a small sample of service projects we have done in the past:

  • Financial Literacy Program. Club members go into classrooms at Moorpark High School and teach high school students about financial literacy.
  • Rotary Reader Program. Club members read once a month to elementary school students at Arroyo West School in Moorpark.
  • Drive-Thru Food Bank. In partnership with Ruben Castro Charities, Rotarians sign up for a day to help sort and hand out boxes of food on a Saturday morning to families in need.
  • Road Cleanup. Together with the five clubs in Moorpark and Simi Valley we sponsor Tierra Rejada Road and gather twice a year to pick up trash.  

Club Socials

Once a month, outside of our weekly meeting, members of our club gather for a social. These often include families and time to unwind and have some fun! Here are some examples of our socials:

  • Friends Giving. Thanksgiving pot luck.
  • Paintball.
  • Night Out. Gather at a local restaurant.
  • Escape Room.
