Fellow Rotarians in District 5130 …
DG 5130 Bob Rogers
Rotary Club of Sebastopol
District Governor 2017- 2018
Bob Rogers retired as an airline pilot with U.S. Airways and quickly took off as a new Rotary member with the Sebastopol Rotary Club. His rise through the ranks of Rotary included his year as Club President in 2013 – 2014 which led to being asked to become Assistant Governor for an additional two years prior to becoming District Governor.
Bob starts his year as DG embracing the theme and message of Rotary International President Ian Risely; “Making a Difference.” According to Bob the biggest difference Rotary can make is to eliminate the polio virus from the planet. He has had a personal journey with polio and as a survivor, he was moved to become a member of District 5130’s PolioPlus committee within a few years of joining Rotary.
With his airline flying career behind him, Bob is quick to point out that his second career is Rotary.
