Are Fair Oaks Kids Smarter
Because of Rotary Dictionaries?
  
As they do every year about this time, a crew from the Fair Oaks Rotary barged in on two third grades at Northridge Elementary School and gave every child his or her own dictionary.  And as they always do, the kids appeared thankful and excited.  Will it produce a Pulitzer Prize winner for Fair Oaks in the next generation?  Only time will tell.  But it's a pretty good bet we'll be back next year.
Fair Oaks Rotary's Senior Luau
Not Hindered by Soggy Weather
  
 
They had to be escorted in by the umbrella platoon, but once inside, the weather was fantastic, the food was yummy, and the entertainment was great.  Fair Oaks Rotary, in partnership with the Recreation and Park District and the Fair Oaks Inner Wheel, once again brought Polynesia to the Community Center for a sold-out room of senior citizens.
Rotary Ray Chosen DGD!
OK, who's Rotary Ray, and what's a DGD?  Well, that would be Ray Ward... yeah, the one in OUR club... and he was chosen to be the District 5180... yeah, that's OUR district... Governor in 2019-20, making him the District Governor Designate.  How's that for a mouthful?  And making it even more special, he will become the first District Governor from the Fair Oaks club in our 71 year history!  Congratulations, Ray!  We should have realized something was up when all those Past (and current and future) District Governors showed up at our meeting, which is the usual custom to announce the DGND in our district.
Fair Oaks Rotary Plays Santa and
Fair Oaks Families Eat Better

 
 
 
As is their custom this time of year, the Fair Oaks Rotary, led by Chief Elf Cliff Straehely, with assistance from Chief Elf Emeritus Tom Rains, using financial assistance from a bunch of places and muscle (believe it or not) from club members, packed and distributed over 100 boxes of holiday-related food for low income families at Northridge and Legette Elementary schools.
#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.  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.

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.
