Directions for members on how to make a payment to Rotary Club of Stockton:
- Hybrid Live Meetings @ Stockton Golf & Country Club – Today was the first time in over a year there was a meeting at the Stockton Country Club with a limited number of guests. The members can chose Zoom option as well. I’m sure there will be more information to follow in future Wheel’s.
When we resume regular meetings..

Speakers: Pam Heaney, Mike Higgins, Dan Leavitt and Virginia Madueno
Introduced by: International Service Chair Ken Steele
Dan Leavitt, Manager, Mike Higgins, Virginia Madueno and Pam Heaney.
They explained this major and largest rail project in the State. Apparently, we have currently the biggest bottleneck of locomotives and tracks that exists just South of downtown Stockton and at our local Railroad station. The project will be separating the railroads that run North and South and the ones that run East to West. This involves freight trains, ACE Train and Amtrak. It will involve many local streets from Weber, Main, Market, Lafayette, Church, Hazelton, Scotts and Charter. There will be an overpass and flyover installed and the track will run under the crosstown freeway. It will also enhance and develop much of this neighborhood by installing sidewalks and curbs where none are currently and upgrade the area. It will be a great improvement and is good for the environment, the community and our economy.
