Rotary Club dinner at American Legion Post 53 in Hemet


On Veterans Day, the Rotary Club of Hemet continued its tradition of serving meals to Veterans at the American Legion Post 53. This year, Panda Express, located at 2350 West Florida Ave in Hemet, provided a generous donation of 50 pre-packaged meals. Hemet Rotarians donate prizes for a raffle drawing and freshly made pecan pies for dessert. The Rotary Club of Hemet is proud to continue this tradition of serving and honoring our Veterans because of the immense sacrifice these men and women were willing to make for our country.

Founded in March 1954, The Rotary Club of Hemet is known for its bench advertisement program around the city, the Festival of Frights Halloween party and raising money for programs locally and globally.

Their mission is to provide service to others, promote integrity and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic restrictions, the club is currently meeting via Zoom. Check out their Facebook page @Hemet Rotary or visit to see who is speaking and learn about upcoming community projects. They meet every Wednesday night at 5:30 p.m.

Dan Cortese, Hemet Rotary President
