At its December 1st lunch meeting, President Gary Howard honored Ceta Dochterman as the Rotarian of the Month for December.  
As Ceta noted, “I didn’t join Rotary to say ‘no’ to helping."  That statement clearly defines who Ceta is and what she does.

Whether it is helping with the Thanksgiving Senior Lunch or distributing iPads to residential senior care and nursing homes or taking part in the Club weekly meetings, Ceta is always there with her big smile and positive attitude. She also works with Officer Gabriel Walters at the Castro Valley CHP to ensure that children in shelters are provided presents each year at Rotary’s annual Children’s Christmas Party and many other community projects, such packing and distributing Thanksgiving Lunch Bags at the Kenneth Aitken Senior Center.  In addition, Ceta leads the club’s singing at each weekly meeting when the Club was meeting in person and is often accompanied at meetings by rescue dogs that she is trying to place in a good home.

Service is truly in Ceta’s DNA. Her brother, Cliff Dochterman served as President of Rotary International in 1992-93.
