Orinda Rotary now offers both "virtual"  and in-person meetings that include scheduled speakers! Our in-person meetings are held in the Garden Room at the Orinda Library. You must be fully vaccinated (two vaccinations and a booster) in order to attend in-person. Masks must also be worn when not actively eating/drinking.  We trust that you will follow the Rotary 4-Way Test and adhere to our policy. Social gathering starts at 12:15 PM and the meetings begin promptly at 12:30 PM.  
 
We also use the online teleconferencing service "Zoom" for those who prefer to attend virtually. Each week, members receive an e-mail from President Clay, with instructions on how to join the upcoming meeting, including the requisite meeting ID and password. Members can join video conferencing from their computer or via phone. Non-members interested in participating in our meeting(s) may contact President Clay to request the Zoom link.
