Welcome to San Gabriel Rotary,
Rotary is a leadership organization made up of local business, professionals and community leaders.
We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships and through that, we’re able to get things done in our community.
The Rotary Club of San Gabriel invites you to make new friendship and business contacts that will have an immediate impact on you for a lifetime. Through Rotary we will make a difference locally and internationally working with our community leaders, sharing our professional experiences and resources with people in need so they can better themselves and their families.
We invite you to take a look around our site and find out more about Rotary. We meet on Wednesdays at various times and venues. Please visit our Calendar for information on weekly meetings, programs and services.

Building Community Relations
The Arcadia Police Foundation (APF) is an independent, community-based non-profit organization dedicated to promoting public safety by supporting the Arcadia Police Department (APD). Funds raised by APF are directed towards helping develop and implement new resources and programs at APD.
Founded in 2016, the APF has a two-fold mission to: a) promote public safety by tasing funds to support the APD, and b) build deeper community relations between all residents and business leaders within Arcadia. In a short period of time the APF has helped to bring back the K-9 unit with the addition of K-9 officers Zoli and Kota and their handlers, supporting multiple arrests, drug seizures, and providing bomb-sniffing duties in Arcadia and surrounding cities. We also attend events including APD’s Coffee with a Cop as well as our Dim Sum with a Detective event in order to answer questions and encourage our fellow residents to get involved.
We welcome Arcadia residents and members of our business community to help support APF in any way possible, whether that is through a financial donation or by donating your time and expertise. Together we can support APD in keeping Arcadia a wonderful place to live, work, and play.

IMCES provides integrative mental health, primary care, substance abuse, and social services to help people of all ages, ethnicities, and cultures.

Every year IMCES serves thousands of individuals and families who have been identified to be 100-200% or more below the poverty level. IMCES offers twelve clinical programs developed to reach children, youth, families, and adults who have many barriers to their success and sustainability within the community.

PCDA also offers education and training for professionals, on-site services, and professional consultation for other agencies, addressing special needs, general child development, and behavior.

The Foundation for Living Beauty was founded in 2005 with the goal of providing supportive services to women along their cancer journey. At that time, Living Beauty’s founder Amie Satchu was running an internationally distributed hair care company specializing in wigs and hair extensions. Wanting to do something to give back to the women with cancer who bought her products, she decided to launch a non-profit that would provide her beauty products and makeovers to women living with cancer. In the midst of incorporating the nonprofit organization, Amie’s own mother Joni Petersen was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. With her mother as the driving force, The Foundation for Living Beauty was born and Amie’s mission to provide emotional and physical support to women with cancer became her central focus and passion.
Although the Foundation’s original intent was to focus on “look good, feel good” events, it rapidly became much more, meeting the complex emotional and physical needs of women cancer patients, called “Living Beauties.” Through its holistic approach, The Foundation educates, uplifts and empowers women along their cancer journey. It has grown primarily through word-of-mouth recommendations, making the organic relationships shared by its Living Beauties one of its unique strengths. Through Joni’s personal journey, a social worker herself, the organization has learned the value and importance of creating a strong support system for the women it serves and understands how that support can impact their quality of life and health outcomes.
Currently providing services to more than 450 women, The Foundation for Living Beauty provides a myriad of events, support services and resources to any woman on the cancer journey, whether newly diagnosed, in mid treatment or beyond.
MIDA Women On The Board Initiative
We have made it our mission to compile a list of the most qualified and distinguished women executives in the Nation who are looking to be board members. By having a comprehensive, private and exclusive list of the most prominent women executives in the US, we are making it more simpler than ever before for companies to fill their board seats with qualified C Level women executives. When a company is looking to fill board seats, we will present them with the MWOTB List and assist by finding the person that best suits their needs.
“Doing The Most Good.” In these four words, our mission – to feed, to clothe, to comfort, to care. To rebuild broken homes and broken lives. By walking with the addicted, we can lead them to recovery. In fighting hunger and poverty, we can feed and nurture the spirit. And, in living and sharing the Christian Gospel by meeting tangible needs, we give the world a lasting display of the love behind our beliefs.
