It’s amazing what can be accomplished when people come together for a common goal of helping others. As a Rotarian from the small but mighty Rotary Club of Concord-Diablo, I am proud of the impact we can make in our community. We are just one of 35,000 Clubs in over 200 lands all over the world with over 1,200,000 Rotarians and growing.
Last night our 5th Annual Bowling Bash was held at the Clayton Valley Bowl. Along with lots of fellowship and fun we raised funds that will go back to our local community in various ways such as Project Second Chance, Cambridge Child Development Center, Concord High Schools, and Camp Venture, just to name a few.
The 5th Annual Bowling Bash was a huge success thanks to Rotarians from our Club and the Rotary Club of Concord, friends and family and a HUGE thank you to our Sponsors! Thank you to ALL!

Camp Venture – Camp Venture is a five day training and motivational camp for students who have finished their junior year and are interested in pursuing a career in business, particularly as entrepreneurs. It is held in late June at St. Mary’s College in Moraga. Students, sponsored by their local Rotary Clubs, have the opportunity to interact with experienced business people and meet with other students in District 5160 who have similar interests. As a Vocational Avenue Service project, Camp Venture sponsorship provides your club with the opportunity to build closer ties with students at your local high school and to demonstrate Rotary’s commitment to youth.Thank you for your continued support of Camp Venture.
