Hermosa Beach Farmers Market is Making a difference

Rotary members and program participants are improving lives in communities around the world every day through thousands of service projects. Explore the good work that we’re doing locally and globally, and share these projects through social media.

Today, over 70 million people are displaced as a result of conflict, violence, persecution, and human rights violations. Half of them are children.

We refuse to accept conflict as a way of life. Rotary projects provide training that fosters understanding and provides communities with the skills to resolve conflicts.  As a humanitarian organization, peace is a cornerstone of our mission.

We believe when people work to create peace in their communities, that change can have a global effect.

South Bay Families Connected is a FREE community resource is available to teens, parents and schools for social and emotional wellness of South Bay youth.  SBFC provides support, resources and education to parents, caregivers and teens to help them reach their full potential to hopefully lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.  
Proud to be working with the Weiss Foundation to provide scholarships to girls and boys in Kenya so that they can go to High School. Our scholars just started high school via boarding school and it is a very big deal! If it wasn’t for outside support, many would be home instead.

Thanks to the collective spirit and hard work of the Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce, Saturday, March 11th will mark the 27th year for the Hermosa Beach St. Patrick's Day Parade!  According to it's co-founder and our current club president, J Travers Devine, St. Pat's is a "uniquely American event that only caught on in Ireland as a 'thing' in the 90's.   It was a celebration of the freedom Irish immigrants found in America to speak their language which was prohibited and practice their religion, also prohibited in Ireland by their English Colonial masters. "Step dancing" was also prohibited. 700 years the Brits ruled Ireland, mostly with an iron fist. The Irish in Boston & NYC began St. Pat's parades in the late 1800’s."
