About 49er Rotary


Welcome to 49er Rotary!

The 49er Rotary Breakfast Club of Nevada City is one of 34,000 plus clubs in more than 165 countries that make up Rotary International, the world's oldest service club.


We like to say "we're a young club!" primarily because our 90 plus members cover a wide age range and we were chartered with women and men in 1992.  So, from day one we exemplified the spirit of the next wave of Rotary in the world.  We're proud to be one of the most active clubs in our District 5190 with many service projects both locally and internationally.


49er Rotary is one of five Rotary clubs in western Nevada County. Membership includes a diverse group of men, women, professions, ages, and backgrounds joined together by a common cause - Service Above Self.


Fellowship is a large part of the Rotary experience. Whether you're interested in meeting new friends, participating in a cultural or vocational exchange, or finding a partner for a service project, 49er Rotary offers opportunities to connect with others in our community.




Some of the Community Service Projects and organizations that 49er Breakfast Rotary has supported include: Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Falls Prevention Coalition, Barbara Schmidt Millar triathalon, Miner's Foundry, Hope House, and Bear Yuba Land Trust. The most successful and sustainable Rotary service projects tend to fall in one of these categories: Education and literacy; economic and community development; disease prevention and treatment; water and sanitation; maternal and child health; peace and conflict prevention/resolution.




International child and maternity hospitals in Uganda, water systems in Nepal, dental clinics in Mexico, school refurbishing in Papua New Guinea - these are a few of the projects 49er Rotary has embarked on through the dedication and participation of our club members. Rotarians support International Service by sponsoring projects in another country, seeking international partners to support projects in our own communities, or by personally volunteering at an international project site.
