Brown Bag Lunches feature presentations, discussions and workplace tours from Rotary members with interesting professions or hobbies. All Rotary members may apply to host a Brown Bag Lunch at their workplace to showcase their profession, passion or hobby. These gatherings provide excellent opportunities to get to know other members in small group settings. Brown Bag lunches take place once a year during a weekly Tuesday meeting.

Recent Brown Bag Lunches include:

  • Private tours of the Robert T. Matsui U.S. District Courthouse with behind-the-scenes narration by Rotary members Senior U.S. District Judge William Shubb and U.S. District Judge Kimberly Mueller;
  • Behind-the-scenes tour of the world of auctions with Brian Witherell. Members viewed a private collection display of Marine art and antiques and luxury items including classic cars, diamond jewelry, and a painting by Wayne Thiebaud;
  • A do-it-yourself floral class from Relles Florist owner Jim Relles at his J Street location. Club members designed and assembled their own floral creations to take home, and heard a presentation on the changes in the floral industry and how pricing and delivery services have been impacted by internet-based business practices.
