Tri-Valley Evening Rotary was formed in 2002 for community service-oriented adults who are unable to attend lunch meetings. With 15 members, it meets on Thursdays for dinner at Castlewood Country Club. Tri-Valley Rotary sponsors an annual barbeque on Family Day at Livermore Veterans Hospital. It annually collects, launders and distributes winter coats to needy children. It sponsors a Senior Holiday Night Out in Pleasanton and supports a business training program in Rajkot, India. It raises funds from its "Lights Out" golf tournament and movie musical sing-alongs, such as an upcoming viewing of "Frozen" April 11 at Amador Theater. "We all want to serve and have service in our heart, but we are a little less rigorous from a true Rotary perspective," president Carol Vanden Muellen said. Pleasanton's three Rotary Clubs are affiliated with Rotary District 5170, which has responsibility for 52 clubs from Palo Alto, south to Watsonville and north to Oakland. Rotary International (RI) provides global guidance. Founded by Chicago businessman Paul Harris in 1905, RI has 1.2 million members in 34,000 chapters around the world.
