President’s Message

 Rotary Club #459 of Rio Vista                            

"Serving the Community"

Your President's Message "Our Youth — Our Future!"

Dear Rotarians and Friends,

While we have all been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, our club emerged relatively unscathed. We increased our membership; we developed a hybrid model for meetings; and we brainstormed new ways to reach our community. Outgoing President Jon Blegen is to be credited and thanked for his leadership.

My chosen theme for 2021-2022 will be “Our Youth, Our Future!” To many, this will come as no surprise, as most of our programs support local youth. Each year we have a strong Interact program under the leadership of Rotarian Molly Coito and High School Principal Vicky Turk. We look forward to taking it to a new level this year.

As has been our Club’s tradition, funds raised from our Golf Tournament are leveraged by the incoming president for projects that are dear to them. My passion is our students and ensuring they develop from being great kids to amazing contributing adults. For current Rotarians, I thank you for your continued support; and for those interested in joining an international community of likeminded kind-hearted souls (that enjoy having a good time too), please give us a call, or email me at and join us for a meeting.

Edwin Okamura President 2021-2022
