It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Feinstein was a member of our Club from May 1, 1989 until her death on September 29, 2023. On July 1, 2023, our Club made Senator Feinstein an honorary member again; she had been an honorary member of our Club before women were allowed to join Rotary.

Senator Feinstein was a native of San Francisco and served for nine years as a San Francisco County Supervisor starting in 1969. The assassination of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk in 1978 forever changed her life. She went on to become San Francisco's Mayor and ultimately, California's first woman U.S. Senator. She dedicated the rest of her life to public service and to finding solutions to problems facing California and the rest of the nation.
