What Have We Been Up To?
#100ActsOfGood?  Centennial?
What are you talking about?
 
Well, it's The Rotary Foundation's 100th birthday in June, and what better way to celebrate than by doing something good for someone.  And Rotary International is encouraging all Rotarians worldwide to "get caught in the act of doing good", then posting what they do on social media and tagging it with the hashtag #100actsofgood.  For a look at what our club is doing, click here.
Fair Oaks Rotary's
"Battle for The Oak"
Not Much of a Battle
 
 
The 2016 football game between Del Campo and Bella Vista High Schools, AKA the Battle for The Oak, had an outcome pretty similar to the last ten or so games, and it wasn't pretty.  Del Campo's Cougars kept the Jim Purcell Memorial Trophy by beating Bella Vista's Broncos 69-0.  As usual, the Fair Oaks Rotary had a crew there passing out flag lapel pins to all military veterans (and paying for their admission to the game), and President Karen Romines and Jim's widow Bev Purcell were there at the end for the presentation of the trophy.  Del Campo HS will also be presented with $1,000 to award to a graduating senior next spring.  We sports fans know that the Cubs were proof that all streaks end, but hopefully this game will become competitive again before 108 years.
Rotary Makes Halloween
Scary Fun & Safe
For Fair Oaks Kids
 
 
 
Fair Oaks Rotarians, with help from Inner Wheel and some great high school helpers, once again made Halloween safe... AND FUN... for kids and parents who came to Fair Oaks Village for a little early trick-or-treating.  Games, three reading stations, free children's books and, of course, candy made for a great day for the kids, and another great year for their dentists. devil  
Fair Oaks Rotary
Hydrates the Masses at
Fair Oaks Chicken Festival
 
 
They may not get credit for saving lives, but Fair Oaks Rotarians (and some friends and family) poured craft brew samples from almost a dozen local breweries to raise funds for the many service projects they do here and around the world.  It was hot, it was work, it was fun, and it was profitable, so I suppose we'll probably do it again next year.  NOTE:  apologies to the many who worked but whose photos aren't here. frown
Madison Avenue Spotless After
Fair Oaks Rotary Cleanup
Neil Shepherd and his crew of members with nothing better to do on a Saturday morning in August performed our quarterly duty of beautification (trash collection) on Madison Avenue between Chicago and Kenneth, right in front of Bella Vista High School.  Without the usual help from our high school affiliate, the Bella Vista Interact Club, it took a few more Rotarians than usual to get the job done.  Rumor has it that Rotary fuel (coffee and donuts) were provided.
Fair Oaks Rotary
Welcomes Joao Vitor Veri!
  
The usual suspects were on hand when Rotary Youth Exchange student Joao Veri arrived at Sacramento International from his home in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on August 9 for his year (well, school year) in the United States.  His first American "mom" and "brother" joined Youth Services Chair Maggie Hoy in welcoming him.  We're looking forward to a great year!

Our club is pleased to announce grant funding for up to $1,000 per project for charitable and educational activities to benefit children and senior citizens in the local community.

Application deadlines are October 1, January 1, and April 1.

Funding is budgeted annually July 1 to June 30 and is available until funds are depleted.  Click Here to Download the application.
