A Luau in January?
Fair Oaks Rotary says, "Why Not?"
 
What better way to warm up 100+ Fair Oaks seniors than some pulled pork and Polynesian music?  The luau's sponsors (Fair Oaks Rec & Park, Rotary and Inner Wheel, and the Bella Vista Interact Club) decided to move the luau from its customary September date (too close to that Chicken Festival) to January, where the only conflict was the Rotary's distribution of dictionaries to LeGette third-graders.  Hey, no problem... youth service in the morning, seniors at lunch.  For more of the action, click "Read more..." 
 
 
 
 
Are Fair Oaks Third-Graders Smarter
Because of Rotary?
 
The answer to that question is that they likely will be smarter in the future, and at least partly because of Fair Oaks Rotary.  As they do about this time every year, Fair Oaks Rotarians visited Northridge and LeGette Elementary schools and gave every third-grader their own personal dictionary.  Even in the age of iPads and Google, the kids looked pretty pleased about their new acquisition.  For more photos, click "Read more..."
 
 
 
Fair Oaks Rotarians Play Santa
For Over 100 Northridge School Families
  
 
Santa came a week early for over 100 families at Northridge Elementary School as the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks, led once again by Chief Elf Tom Rains, packaged and delivered baskets... well, actually boxes... of food for the holidays.  For more of the action, click the link "Read more...".  For all the photos, click here.
 
 
 
Fair Oaks Rotary Float
Wows Christmas Parade Viewers
Utilizing Rotary International's 2015-16 theme of "Be A Gift To The World" (and a float rented from another Rotary club), the Fair Oaks Rotary entry in this year's Christmas parade was a show-stealer, with lots of kids in gift boxes... no, we weren't giving them away... alongside Rotarians in Santa hats.  To see what went into the prep for this, click for more.
 
 
 
It's Del Campo Again in the
Battle for the Oak
 
 
Almost buried in that mass of young, sweaty testosterone is Rotary Club of Fair Oaks honorary member Bev Purcell, on hand to present the trophy named after her deceased husband, past president Jim Purcell, to the winner of the Del Campo-Bella Vista football game, AKA the Battle For The Oak, so named because it decides the Fair Oaks high school football champion for the year.  By a 49-26 margin, and for consecutive years that are getting hard to count, Del Campo won the game.
 
In addition to the trophy, a $1,000 graduation award is presented to a senior at the winning school by the Rotary club, and since the game usually occurs in close proximity to Veterans Day, the club also pays for the admission to the game of anyone who identifies themselves as a military veteran.  For a look at the trophy and the crew at the gate, click the link...
 
 
 
Who Had the Most Fun
at Fair Oaks Safe Halloween?
 
 
 
Books and games and... oh,yeah, candy... made for another great Safe Halloween in Fair Oaks Village.  As usual, the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks was among the organizations having fun working hard to make the day a success.  For a further look at the frolicking, click the link...
