Welcome to the Steinbeck Rotary website. Our normal meetings are Wednesday mornings at "CSUMB @ Salinas City Center", also known as the "Steinbeck Center". Doors open at 7:00 am when a hot catered breakfast is served. The meeting starts at 7:30 and ends promptly at 8:30. We normally have an outside speaker which has been chosen to either inform or entertain. Click here to see our upcoming speakers. The cost to attend is $15.00, which includes breakfast. Please come and join us for an enjoyable morning with some local community leaders giving back to the youth in our community.

Steinbeck Rotary has been and avid supporter of Rotary Youth Exchange and has hosted and sponsored exchange students for thirty-five years. Shortly our inbound exchange student will be arriving from Turkey and we will be sending an exchange student to Sweden. The Club is very proud of our relationship with Everett Alvarez High School (EAHS), and a proud sponsor of the Interact Club. In 2018-19 Rotary Year, the EAHS Interact Club was recognized by Rotary International as "Outstanding Interact Club" and Steinbeck Rotary was recognized as "Outstanding Philanthropic Service Organization" by the Monterey Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals!

Please join us for an enjoyable meeting or volunteer for one of our fundraising events. Email us if you have any questions and we hope to see you soon!
