Welcome to our Rotary eClub of World Peace, where we enjoy weekly speakers on timely topics, have open  discussions, and active members creating peace in their lives and communities. We can be proud of our first four years as a Peace eClub, two World Peace Conferences, dedicated members and video-archives of all past speakers.

Rotary International President Holger Knaack spoke to our 5330 District – 54 presidents elect. Holger asked us to rethink our club, bring new ideas to keep our club thriving. I look forward to hearing your ideas throughout my year.

In these challenging times we need each other more than ever. “Every great challenge is an opportunity for renewal and growth,” he said as he shared his theme for 2020-21 Rotary Opens Opportunities. Let’s be creative with new international and community-based projects. This is a time for collaboration and cooperation with each other in our conversations and actions in our global community.

In 2020-21 how can we make peace part of our daily lives? For example, in my home I have a PEACE CORNER sign in my kitchen. I know you wear our Rotary Peace pin proudly and when someone asks about the pin, you can say you are a member of the Rotary eClub of World Peace and we meet every Tuesday evening on Zoom, please join us.

To join the meetings, please email to receive the link for our weekly meeting. Please email at least 24 hours in advance to receive the link.

I’m Barbara from Santa Barbara and I believe that peace is possible. We are here together, because Rotary gives us a platform and the opportunity to take action wherever we are to build a peaceful and better world for all. I am honored to be your 2020-21 President of


Every single day we make hundreds and hundreds of decisions. Most of these are automatic based on our learned behaviors.

In dealing with our family members, our friends, persons we meet on the street or in the grocery store, our associates at work are we truly treating them as fairly and ethically as they deserve?   The next time you make a decision, we ask you to use the Four Way Test to challenge yourself to make the best and responsible choice.

Live a life “Doing the Right Thing”!
