Congratulations to Michael Osborne of the Rotary Club of Marin Sunrise for being selected as Rotary District 5150's Rotarian of the Month for May 2024! Mike is the last remaining, founding member of his Club and has been a Rotarian since June 1, 1987. He, along with women for the very first time in Rotary International’s history, chartered the Rotary Club of Marin Sunrise in May 1987. It is an honor that Mike and the members of his Club are still very proud of today.
Mike truly embodies the spirit of Rotary and its motto of Service Above Self. He has demonstrated his passion and commitment to serving others both professionally and as a Rotarian. For 59 years, he was a surgeon in the military, in the public health sector, and at Marin General Hospital. As a Rotarian, he was instrumental in bringing RotaCare, a free medical clinic, to Marin County’s underserved and uninsured residents 26 years ago. Mike served as Chairman on the Advisory Board of RotaCare San Rafael for many years and was honored by the RotaCare Bay Area Board for his years of outstanding service just this year.
Mike’s dedication to his Club for the past 36 years has been unwaveringly strong. In addition to serving as President, he was Treasurer, Foundation Chair, Vocational Chair, Membership Chair, and golf tournament Fundraiser Chair for many years. Even more impressive is the fact that when Mike and his wife Dee moved to Bodega Bay 30 years ago, he commuted an hour each way to attend the 7 AM weekly meeting of the Rotary Club of Marin Sunrise. In 2015, when they moved to Half Moon Bay, he continued the commute in the dark to the Marin Sunrise early morning meeting in Corte Madera and was often the first to arrive.

Mike is a multiple Paul Harris Fellow and has honored his wife Dee, his two children, and four grandchildren with Paul Harris fellowships as well. He has also pinned outstanding members of our community as well as recognized speakers with Paul Harris honors. Spreading the good deeds of Rotary has been at the forefront for Mike for 36 years.
Mike's contributions to his Club, his community, and his friends and family go above and beyond any other Rotarian in his Club. The Rotary Club of Marin Sunrise and Rotary District 5150 are honored to have Dr. Michael Osborne as a valued member and grateful for his many contributions over the years. Mike is most deserving to be recognized as District 5150’s Rotarian of the Month for May 2024!
