The first of July marked the beginning of a new year for the Rotary Club of Del Mar and with it brings new President, Dr. William Rawlings. Bill is off to a roaring start with exciting guest speakers, new goals for the members and a passion for serving others.

Bill has been a Solana Beach resident with his wife, Mary, since 1982. He is a Specialist in Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry and has been in the Rotary Club of Del Mar since 1996. Over the years, his contributions to the club have focused on community service, planning and executing club fundraiser events and international service projects.
