Meet Marilyn Appleby, our 2021-2022 Santa Paula Rotary President!

It is an honor to be your Club President for the Rotary Year 2021-2022. I truly admire the experience and talent each member brings to the Rotary Club of Santa Paula. 

This past year has been difficult with Covid, but our Club remained unified, serving our community well. As we gather back together and reconnect, we have the opportunity to move ahead in the new year even stronger.  

I look forward to serving with you in a new year of:

  •           Service, Fellowship and Fun!

Here’s to a great new Rotary year!

Marilyn
