What Have We Been Up To?
Fair Oaks Rotary Does
More Arbor Beautification
  
 
As predicted in the story from two weeks ago, the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks continued the maintenance and beautification of their arbor in Plaza Park in beautiful downtown Fair Oaks Village, this time adding some plants along the wall in back of the arbor.  Considering that three Rotarians escaped prior to the press (that would be me) arriving for the culmination photo, it looks like there may have been more than one Rotarian assigned to each plant.  Needless to say, they were done so fast that the lack of Rotary fuel (i.e., coffee and donuts) didn't affect the outcome.

Gets Needed Maintenance
 
 
The Rotary Arbor in Plaza Park got some well-deserved maintenance today by some Fair Oaks Rotarians and friends, and from the photos, it looks like they were well-supervised.  With no evidence of Rotary fuel in sight (that would be coffee and donuts), it's not clear how they got through the morning.  Look for another work detail in a few weeks.
What Were Ten Fair Oaks Rotarians
Doing in Baja?
 
    
 
Well, it was a club service project in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Cabo Del Este in Los Barriles (between La Paz and Cabo San Lucas) and two other northern California clubs, Nevada City and Quincy.  The goals were threefold: spiff up a dormitory at a school for kids from the surrounding mountain ranchos, distribute fleece blankets with edges crocheted by Rotarians and Fair Oaks Inner Wheel, and do some scouting in preparation for a future water project.  All were achieved, as was the hallmark Rotary goal of having fun.  It was all so successful that something similar is likely to happen again next year.
 
As Usual, Speech Contestants
Wow Fair Oaks Rotary Meeting
Four high school students spoke on the topic of "Serving Humanity" at our club level speech contest at the meeting on March 6, and most in attendance were glad that they weren't judging the contest.  Our winner, Bella Vista senior Sara Ostad Rahimi, now proceeds to the regional semifinal contest on March 30.
Fair Oaks Rotary Road Warriors
Spiff Up Madison Avenue
 
Accompanied by #100ActsOfGood mascot Rooty the Rooster, nine stalwart members of the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks braved some pre-storm wind chill and a dearth of Rotary fuel (that would be coffee and donuts to the uninitiated) to perform their magic on Madison Avenue from Chicago to Kenneth by picking up several months worth of trash.  Rooty, as usual, simply tagged along doing nothing but watching and then hogged the post-work photo, for which he almost ended up in an orange bag himself.  Look for us out there again in a few months.

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.
