In Memoriam: PDG Roger Taylor

A message from Governor David Houtz:

It is with a heavy heart that I inform you of the passing of Past District Governor Roger Taylor on Tuesday, September 6, 2022. 

Roger joined the Rotary Club of Coatesville in 2014. He served as President of the club (2017-2018) and as District Governor for District 7450 (2021-2022). He also served as chair of the District 7450 Rotary Speech Contest. In his personal life, he was an Army veteran and taught Observational Astronomy for more than thirty years. 

Roger was a kind friend with a warm smile to all who knew him. We will forever be grateful for his leadership and he will be deeply missed. 

A follow-up email will be made with funeral and memorial information.

David Houtz
District Governor 2022-2023


Statement from Rotary International

Sunday, June 21, 2020At Rotary, we have no tolerance for racism. Promoting respect, celebrating diversity, demanding ethical leadership, and working tirelessly to advance peace are central tenets of our work.

We have more work to do to create more just, open and welcoming communities for all people.

We know there are no easy fixes and that challenging conversations and work lie before all of us. Rotary’s strength has long been our ability and commitment to bringing people together. We will tap into that strength now as we stand with those who are working for peace and justice. 

Rotary will do our part to listen, learn and take action to ensure that we continue to contribute to making positive change.


Rotarians and Friends of Rotary:

This video is a 26 minute video designed to be a club program. It highlights Rotary’s long term efforts in polio eradication, describes and is an example of how to run a virtual/in-person meeting, and speaks about the pandemic we all are in the midst of.

Two questions: How can Rotarians save lives during the COVID-19 Pandemic? and How can this crisis stimulate an evolved, even more impactful Rotary?

Please watch this powerful video with Tony Fauci, President Holger, Cliff Dochterman, John Hewko, leaders from the Gates Foundation, WHO, GAVI, Yale, and more, answering these two questions!

The video was produced by The Global Impact Group (TGIG.org) and is a result of discussions and ideas that emerged from The Rotary Pandemic Response Task Force. Jim Marggraff, who you will see in the video, is a founding member of TGIG, a Rotarian in the Lamorinda Sunrise Rotary Club, and one of the 9-member global Rotary Pandemic Response Task Force.The video was filmed at one of his club’s meetings.
