President’s Message

Fellow Rotarians,

Good morning and Happy Monday! If you were unable to attend last Tuesday’s meeting you really missed out!  We had an offsite meeting at JJ Pfister Distillery – a new business in the Sacramento area in Rancho Cordova’s growing Barrel District.  Members received a private tour from the owners, got to sample a few spirit varietals, and of course had a tasty lunch.  JJ Pfister was involved in the 2018 Arden Arcade Open and they confirmed that they would be thrilled to participate (read: donate alcohol) again!

If you are sad that you didn’t attend this wonderful offsite meeting never fear!  We have a couple great events coming up that you can join us for.  First things first, on Friday October 5th we have Rotary Fleet Week and a cruise on the Bay!  Steve Turner and Tim Cahill have worked quite hard to have things all set up for us to have a wonderful time.  On the following weekend we have our first Rotary Work Day on Sat 10/13.   Thanks to the efforts of Bill Hambrick, Earl Heverly, and Al Cady we will be replacing 10 picnic tables & doing some clean up on the American River Parkway.  Our hard work will be immediately followed by a BBQ that your whole family is invited to!

Only a few days left before the deadline for the Fall Grant passes.  Please send interested parties to www.ardenarcaderotary.org to apply by September 30th!!

Tomorrow we are having a “normal” meeting at Piatti and will be visited by friend of the club Roger Niello.  I hope to see each and every one of you there!

Have a great weekend!!

Yours in Rotary,

Thomas J. Goode
