The Bob Hope USO in Palm Springs is a vital effort supporting our nation's military travelers. Local center director Teresa Cherry described the operations of the local center and how the volunteers and staff work to support traveling members of our military, providing the most basic of services. The local center receives no government assistance and instead relies on grants and private donations of all sizes and types...seems like we should be able to do more to support these often young but dedicated members of the armed services. To learn how you can help, visit their website or contact Teresa Cherry. http://www.bobhopeuso.org

President's Message


Welcome to The Rotary Club of Palm Springs!

Thanks so much for visiting our website.  We are a group with a sincere desire to make a difference locally and around the world, and hopefully have a little fun along the way.  Each week we come together for fellowship and to learn more about our community from our wonderful guest speakers.  If you live in our area and would like more information about our Rotary club send me an email and participate in one of our community service projects or have lunch with us.  If you are a visiting Rotarian for a few days or a few months, we invite you to attend our luncheon meetings held each Wednesday at Noon.


Warmest Regards,

Thomas Smith
