What Have We Been Up To?
Fair Oaks Rotary Sponsors
Women's Empowerment Graduation

That headline would make many wonder what Women's Empowerment is, and what exactly it means to "sponsor" a graduation.  Well, the website of this 18 year-old program probably says it best: "The mission of Women’s Empowerment is to educate and empower women who are homeless with the skills and confidence necessary to get a job, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and regain a home for themselves and their children."  As they graduated their 76th class, consisting of 21 women, what that "sponsor" business meant was that we bought, prepared and served the lunch following the ceremony.  Of course, that also included setting up and cleaning up, and making sure that no left-over dessert went to waste.  We've been doing this for several years and there's a good chance we'll be back next year, because it's a real feel-good experience... and the dessert is always yummy.  For more pics of the crew in action (?), click "Read more..."

Fair Oaks Rotary Continues
Madison Avenue Beautification Project
Nourished by Rotary fuel (click "Read more..." if interested) and attired quite nattily, the Rotarians from the Fair Oaks club, reinforced by one member of the Bella Vista High School Interact Club, sallied forth on to Madison Avenue between Kenneth and Chicago (the street, not the city) in their never-ending quarterly quest to keep Mad Ave looking good.  For the end result, click "Read more..."

Welcome Lovisa!
I know you're asking yourself, WHO is Lovisa, and what are the blue and yellow flags all about?  Well, she would be Lovisa Hansson, and if you guessed that was a Swedish flag, you'd be correct.  She is the Rotary Youth Exchange student sponsored by our club; she will be spending the next nine months attending school here in Fair Oaks.  We had a crew of 18 to welcome her to Sacramento; she would be the one standing between her first host mom, Jeanne Carr, and our outgoing student, Charlie Bingaman, who is off to Bolivia soon.
Dunbar Takes the Reins of
Fair Oaks Rotary
The bell rings and the room empties... hey, it's tradition.  Then the little kids lure the adults back in with... Transformers?   Really?  It all made sense when incoming club president Dennis Dunbar revealed the club theme for the year... Connect to Transform Lives.  It was a good start to what looks like another great year for the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks.

Get Inspired in Hamburg
What's inspiring about Hamburg, you might ask.  Well, it was the Rotary International Convention, which welcomed 25,000+ Rotarians from 170+ countries for five days of learning, inspiration and hanging out together.  Eighteen members of the Fair Oaks club had so much fun attending this one, that it looks like next June in Honolulu may see even more going!

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.
