The RSF Rotary Club was established 60 years ago in 1954. Original founding members include the late Daniel Royce, R. Roger Rowe, Roger S. Woolley, Del Colby and R. E. Badger. Daniel Royce was the manager of the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe for generations. Dr. Rowe served as school superin- tendent, educator and retired Marine. Roger Woolley was a local attorney and built the original market, post office, and other buildings in the Rancho Santa Fe town center. R.E. Badger operated a grove management company that is still run by his son Chuck Badger and Chuck Badger, Jr. Both of who are members of the RSF Rotary Club.
The RSF Rotary Club has a long history of service to the community through numerous projects that sup- port worthy causes. Recipi- ents of this outreach include The Helen Woodward Ani- mal Center, The RSF Com- munity Center, The RSF School Performing Arts Cen- ter, the Rosarito Blanket Project, San Pasqual Acade- my, Polio Plus and many other worthy organizations. They also host the annual Rotary Fall Festival BBQ (now in its 35th year) in the park across from The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. The event, which is sponsored by Val- enti International, celebrates the return of all students to the R. Roger Rowe School and will be held this year on Oct. 3.
