What Have We Been Up To?
Bella Vista Interactors Wonder
"Where's Rotary?"
  
This is Rotary's gig, right?  That's what the sign says.  And that's what four members of the Interact Club of Bella Vista High School were probably wondering one cold... by Fair Oaks standards... Thursday afternoon as they beautified Madison Avenue near the school.  Since the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks sponsors the Interact Club, I suppose that counts for something.  And it looks like Interactors are as fueled by sweets as Rotarians.  Maybe they'll have a joint project next time.
Fair Oaks Rotary Planning 29th Annual
Mardi Gras Crab Feed
That's right, all you crab eaters!  Widely recognized as one of the best in the area, the 2019 edition of the annual crab feed of the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks is scheduled for Saturday evening, February 16, at the Divine Savior Parish Hall on Greenback Lane in Orangevale.  Tickets are available from your favorite Fair Oaks Rotarian, on Eventbrite (click here), or by emailing the club.  Don't miss out on great food and a fun evening!
Fair Oaks Rotary Plays Santa
At Northridge Elementary School
 
 
 
We call it the Holiday Basket project because, well, Holiday Boxes doesn't sound very elegant.  But 120+ families at Northridge Elementary School couldn't care less about the name; they only know that they will be eating a little better this holiday season because of the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks.  Once again, Chief Elf Jim Erickson honchoed the project and Jacob Giorgi's moving company provided the boxes.  It's likely we'll do it again next year, because we're hooked on that feel-good feeling.  For some pictures of Rotarians having too much fun, click Read More...
Fair Oaks Rotary Caroling Finale
Wows Eskaton Residents
 
 
After two rehearsals performances at other senior facilities, you gotta figure that the Fair Oaks Rotary Caroling chorus would probably have it together... and they apparently did, if the reception they got at Eskaton Gold River was any measure.  As usual, many of the residents didn't need songbooks to join in; they knew all the words of all the verses.  Who the heck does that nowadays?  Anyhow, it was so much fun that they'll probably be back in 2019.
'Tis the Season,
So Fair Oaks Rotary Sounds Off
 
Oakmont of Fair Oaks senior center had the unfortunate distinction of being the first victim audience of the Fair Oaks Rotary's caroling efforts in 2018.  Despite the club's limited rehearsing... none, actually... the residents were quite gracious and generous with their smiles.  With two more gigs at other centers next week, keep your fingers crossed.
Fair Oaks Rotary Runs Marathon
Aid Station for CIM
  
Haha, you didn't think the club ran a marathon, did you?  However, some 40+ club members reported to set up the aid station at 5:45 am... yes, you read that right.  Witnesses reported that it seemed to be a lot of fun, so someone must have brought Rotary fuel (coffee and donuts for you neophytes).  Since this is an annual event, does that portend something for 2019?
Fair Oaks Rotary Has Cutest Kids
On Float in Santa Parade
  
 
 
The addition of a (faux) gingerbread house and some super-cute kids made it highly likely that the Fair Oaks Rotary float in this year's Fair Oaks Santa Parade would blow the competition out of the water... if they still gave prizes for best float.  Of course, Santa is always the main winner, hands down.  Lighting the tree in Village Park and a few carols is a great close to the evening.
