Good afternoon and Happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend. If you didn’t attend last week my goodness did you miss out on a tasty meal! Canon East Sacramento opened up their critically acclaimed restaurant just for us and RCAA feasted! Theresa Scherber from Big Brothers Big Sisters Sacramento was the guest speaker and also received BBBS’s check as the Fall Grant Recipient. Theresa has visited us before, but this was the first time we got to hear the Exec Director of BBBS speak and we learned about the impact they make right here in Arden Arcade.
Thank you to all that came out to the Rotary House Clean Up Day on Saturday. The volunteers had coffee & donuts, made quick work of the clean-up, and were on their way by 10:30. Not bad at all! Thanks Tim Cahill for organizing!
A few reminders about upcoming events in the next few weeks:
- Rotary Holiday Party – Dec 1st at Del Paso Country Club. Make sure to sign up and bring your s/o!
- Rotary Budget Workshop – Dec 3rd at Howe Park. Want to give the board some input on how were we spend our funds and which projects to support? Show up and give us your opinion!
- Laurel Ruff Holiday Party – Dec 4th at Laurel Ruff elementary. In lieu of our normal lunch meeting, participate in one of the club’s standing projects! Never fear, no elf suits this year! J
Tomorrow we are back at Piattis and we’ll be hosting Ron Loder of Loder Wines. He’ll speak to us about the wine making process while we swirl and sip a few varietals. Sick of my dumb face? You’re in luck – I can’t make the meeting! In my absence Past President Bill Hambrick will be taking the reins and (Lord willing) may never give them back.
Finally, I want to take a moment to thank all of our members that have served our Country. The sacrifices made by all those who serve, both past & present, allow all Americans to enjoy the freedoms they have today. Thank you for your service!
Yours in Rotary,
Thomas J. Goode
