Friends for Life Fundraiser

The Humboldt County Animal Shelter needs your help. The shelter is running out of the necessary funding to treat wounds and conditions for Humboldt county animals that come into the shelter. They are having to make tough decisions on whether or not they can adopt pets out who have completely treatable conditions, or have them euthanized. Lost Coast Rotaract, Friends for Life and Folie Douce in Arcata have teamed up to create an event for the shelter needs. On Monday, December 12th, Folie Douce will host a dinner between the hours of 5 pm and 9 pm. 100% of the profits made that evening will go to the medical fund. Please call (707) 822-1042 and make your reservations today.friends-for-life

Come enjoy food, beer, and fun for the whole family while supporting a good cause. Registration is 20.00 per person, minimum 10 people per team. Get yourself signed up today by emailing

More than 50% of school children in Humboldt County are enrolled in the free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch programs when school is in session, but this food is not available on the weekends. The Backpacks for Kids program has been in operation since 2006 and provides a bag full of nutritious, kid-friendly food every Friday during the school year for local children living at risk for hunger. School teachers and administrators report that children who receive the weekend food packages no longer complain of hunger on Monday mornings and have fewer problems with attendance, concentration and behavior after participating in the Backpacks for Kids program.

Lost Coast Rotaract signs Twin Club Agreement with the Rotaract Club of Agrabad

The Lost Coast Rotaract Club from Eureka California, and the Rotaract Club of Agrabad, in Chittagong Bangladesh have signed a Twin Club agreement.


While in Chittagong Bangladesh, three of our Lost Coast Rotaract members, Carly Robbins, Jamie Carroll and Royce Buell, and Cory Busher from North Bay Rotaract were fortunate enough to be able to work alongside rotaractors from the city of Chittagong.


Members from the Rotaract clubs of Agrabad, Chittagong and Port City served as translators during the mission, helping the entire medial and non-medical team to communicate with patients, their parents and the medical team in Bangladesh.  Good friendships were formed and the Rotaract clubs of Agrabad, Chittagong and Port City even held a special joint meeting to welcome all four rotaractors from California.


During this visit members of the Lost Coast Rotaract Club and North Bay Rotaract signed twinning agreements with the Rotaract Club of Agrabad.


Lost Coast Rotaract is extremely excited for the opportunity to partner with such wonderful rotaractors abroad on future projects and look forward to the chance to create lasting relationships with our friends in Chittagong.

“Four local rotaractors recently traveled to the other side of the world, embarking on a two week trip in Chittagong, Bangladesh. But it wasn’t your ordinary trip. Carly Robbins, Royce Buell, and Jamie Carroll of Lost Coast Rotaract and Cory Busher of North Bay Rotaract took a Rotaplast mission trip to help children suffering from cleft lip, palate and burns.”

Eureka’s Lost Coast Rotaract

A committed group of dynamic young professionals dedicated to improving the local and international community!

The Lost Coast Rotaract is a service club for adults ages 18-30 that meets every Monday to discuss projects and ideas, plan activities and service projects, and get to know other young professionals. The club plans projects to help strengthen our community in Humboldt County, as well as international community.

Lost Coast Rotaract meets every Monday at 6:30 PM at Los Bagels, 410 G Street, Eureka, CA. Interested members are always welcome and encouraged to attend meetings.

Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Eureka, the Lost Coast Rotaract was started in 2010 by founding president Klark Swan. Lost Coast Rotaract has been a driving force in the Eureka and Humboldt community since the very beginning. Members have volunteered time to fundraise and support Humboldt CASA, Backpacks for Kids, Rampart Skate Park, North Coast Rape Crisis Team, Betty Kwan Chinn Outreach, the Jefferson Project, PacOut Green Team, Toys for Tots, and many other charitable organizations.

The Lost Coast Rotaract is comprised of members from diverse backgrounds who share the common goal to give back to the community in which they reside.
