What Have We Been Up To?
It's Fair Oaks Rotary Fridays
At the FO/OV Food Bank!
 
 
When the COVID-19 pandemic increased food insecurity in the Fair Oaks-Orangevale area, FO/OV Food Bank director and Rotarian Keith Wright knew where to get help.  Expanding their hours by adding distributions on Friday seemed like a good idea, and Rotarians jumped at the chance to serve.  Clad in their designer masks, they learned their tasks without too much difficulty and took over the new Friday distribution hours through the end of summer.  To read more about even more food distribution, click Read more...
Fair Oaks Rotarians Become Zoomers
 
Well, it started almost eight weeks ago, so it's starting to look like a trend.  The park district took away our meeting space, then the whole state shut down.  So for seven straight weeks, we've been meeting on line via Zoom Webinar.  After a couple of meetings feeling our way in the dark, we have actually had real live speakers for the past five weeks, telling us about topics of interest during these trying times.
 
And we haven't stopped the projects, either, from a biweekly Zoom "happy hour" with attempted singalongs (bottom line... singalongs on Zoom don't work well) to food collections and other support of the Fair Oaks-Orangevale Food Bank.  It will take more than the coronavirus to slow this club down.  Look for more later.
Five Young Women Speak Out!
It's the Fair Oaks Rotary's Speech Contest
The annual Fair Oaks Rotary speech contest found five young women from three local high schools giving us their thoughts on the District's theme this year, "Connect to Inspire".  As usual, it was one of the best meetings of the year as we were all charmed by the poise and intellect of the speakers.  The winner was Celene Aridin, a senior at Bella Vista High School; she will move on to the District semifinals in a few weeks.
Fair Oaks Rotary Serves Crab
For the 30th Time
 
 
Thirty years ago, someone in our club must have said, "Let's throw a Crab Feed", and a tradition was started.  Serving 500+ guests annually at the club's biggest fundraiser is quite a task, but it ends up being so much fun that it doesn't seem like work.  And it's not just the crab and the courses leading up to it that makes it a great night; the auctions and raffles, and the newly added Dessert Dash, just add to the excitement.  Look for us again in mid-February 2021!

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.
