The 37th Annual Mission 10 Race is set for Saturday, January 25, 2020 in beautiful and historic San Juan Bautista, CA. 
Race Day Registration begins at 7:15am. We need all Rotarians to help on the day of the race to make sure our biggest fundraiser of the year runs smoothly. Our 2019 was a record breaker with more than 765 people participating and we raised more money than ever. Let's crush it again in 2020 and make it the best one yet! Registration will be live in the coming weeks at Stay tuned for more details.

Your Hollister Rotary Board of Directors has approved two new Membership Categories;  Corporate and Family Membership.  Several months ago, our Rotary District introduced these new categories to boost Club Membership. 
In addition, please reference and download the information sheet “Why Join Rotary” written by Richard D. King, Rotary International President 2001-02.  It’s a great resource for any prospective member and the general public.
$28,000 in scholarships were presented to 15 local students that reside in San Benito County and attended San Benito High, Anzar, Pinnacles, Palma and Monterey Bay Academy.
Each year the Rotary Club of Hollister awards college scholarships to local high school seniors throughout San Benito County. This year, the club allocated $28,000 in scholarships to 15 students, the largest amount allocated in the club's 94 years of existence.

Youth programs and scholarships have been a strong focus for the club for many decades in addition to many other local programs (Stuff the Bus, 12 Days of Giving, etc.) and international projects (construction of clean water wells in Nigeria, Cameroon and Ghana; sanitation in Nigeria and Ghana; maternal health in Nigeria; education in Mexico, Philippines, and South America; literacy; oxygen generator and supplies in Ethiopia; polio eradication globally and much more).
The Rotary Club of Hollister was founded in 1925 and lives by the motto "Service Above Self." Hollister Rotary's major fundraiser is the Annual Mission 10 Race, which takes place the last Saturday in January at the Mission San Juan Bautista. The club also raises funds throughout the year by participating in the Saddle Horse Show and Rodeo in late June and other smaller fundraisers. 
Rotary brings together a global network of volunteer leaders dedicated to tackling the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges. Rotary connects 1.2 million members of more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Their work impacts lives at both the local and international levels, from helping families in need in their own communities to working toward a polio-free world. For more information, visit or

It’s always a pleasure to host San Benito High School Students of the Month. On Monday, May 20th the 2018-2019 Students of the Month joined us at our luncheon and shared their future plans with us. These young leaders have a bright future and we couldn’t be more proud of them. 2 lucky students won the raffle and got to take home a new laptop complete with Microsoft Office Suite. Congrats again to all these students!
