What's Going On...
 A GREAT BIG UPCOUNTRY THANK YOU goes out to everyone in our community who participated, supported, and donated to our Annual Amador Upcountry Rotary Crab Feed Fundraiser last January. We were blessed with good weather, a full house, great raffle and auction items, and of course, fabulous crab and clam chowder. Special thanks to Club President Tammy Demetrus for planning and  organizing the event. We raised over $9500 for our upcountry community service projects, that will go toward our college scholarships, and to sponsor 4 high school seniors to Rotary's Youth Leadership Awakening Camp next summer at Camp Grizzly in Portola, CA , as well as 5 eighth graders to attend Rotary's Eighth Grade Leadership Camp in September. For more information about our leadership camps, please go to and to  
We were honored to receive the ShelterBox Hero recognition for Rotary Year 2019-2020. ShelterBox has surpassed 1.6 million people sheltered since 2000 and has provided aid to over 87,000 people so far in 2020!

On the first and third Tuesdays of every month, several of our Rotarians assist with the transportation and distribution of the food from the Interfaith Food Bank for those in need in the Upcountry area, loading the boxes of food in Jackson, transporting them, and unloading them at a church in Pioneer for distribution to the designated individuals and families.


Every year the Rotary Clubs in Amador County distribute big, beautiful, useful dictionaries to EVERY 3rd grader in the county. Amador Upcountry Rotary services Pioneer and Pine Grove Elementary School children. For many, this is the first book they have ever owned. One of the most common questions heard is, "Do we really get to take it home?" Many thanks to long time Upcountry Rotarian Bill Almgren who passed away in 2022 for bringing this amazing program to our community year after year and thanks to his Rotarian and community helpers for assisting in the distribution at the schools!  Thank you, Bill, for this legacy of yours.
