President’s Message

Fellow Rotarians,

Good morning and Happy Friday!!  If you were unable to attend Tuesday’s meeting you missed hearing from friend of the club Roger Niello!  He gave us his thoughts on all things politics, from the upcoming midterms, the CA governor’s race, Pres Trump & tweeting, and more.  Even worse, you missed yet another speaker refer to me as “Tommy” multiple times.  Oh the good times that were had!

We have a couple great events coming up that you can join us for.  First things first, NEXT Friday October 5th we have Rotary Fleet Week and 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.  Feel free to invite a prospective member or a guest and show em how RCAA cuts loose!

On the following weekend we have our first Rotary Work Day on Sat 10/13.   Thanks to the efforts of Bill Hambrick, Earl Haverly, 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!  If you are available to paint the boards and do some legwork on Sun 10/7 let Bill Hambrick know!  We could use a few extra hands!

Sunday is the final day we are accepting applications for the Fall Grant.  Please send interested parties to to apply by September 30th!!

Next week we are meeting at Piatti’s and will be hearing from 2 of our own members – Michael Caplan and Carolyn Ewing!  No this is not a club assembly J.  Michael will give a presentation about his annual race from SF to Hawaii in the Pacific Cup.  Carolyn will share her experiences from one of our clubs bigger International Projects! Have a great weekend and see you Tuesday!

Yours in Rotary,

Thomas J. Goode
