At Altadena Rotary, we have a speaker or program at every weekly meeting, which happens to be Thursdays, from noon to 1:30p. Those wishing to be speakers or know people or organizations that wish to speak or present a program to a local Rotary club are welcome to contact Steve Kerekes, our speaker chairman.

Rotary International has a theme for most of the months of the year
and suggests that our programs follow that theme. They are:
