Brett Whitchurch is the 2021-2022 Rotary Club of Fortuna President.
Brett joined Rotary four years ago to get involved with our local club to help serve our community. In high school, Brett was very involved in the Fortuna High Interact Club, and he also participated in Rotary Youth Exchange Program, living a year abroad in Argentina. Brett is bi-lingual and has traveled on many mission trips with his church as a translator with support from our Rotary Club. Brett has been married to his wife for three years, and she is an elementary teacher locally, and she is also bilingual, and they met on a missions trip. We are honored to have a millennial and possibly the youngest member of our Fortuna Rotary Club as our 2021-2022 Rotary President.

Dustin Littlefield, District Governor 5130, 2021-2022, Rotary Club of Arcata Sunrise
A New Year for Rotary
My plans for our District will be to focus on the energetic promotion of the ideals of Rotary spirit and service, to tell the Rotary story, and to increase the understanding of Rotary’s work in the community. It is incredibly important for communities, for our friends and neighbors, our business and entrepreneurial communities, our public officials, to know what we do, why we do it, and to understand the potential that we have to do more. We can provide a framework for action and improvement that can make our shared lives stronger, healthier, and happier.
