What Have We Been Up To?
Rotary Club of Fair Oaks - Meristem 2022-2023 Rotary District Grant project was officially launched Monday night by our Rotary District 5180 Governor Karen Cendro. Thank you for your incredible support DG!
 
The goal of the project is to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the employment sector through provision of culinary skill for young adults with mental challenges such as Autism. Currently, the mainstream employment rate for workers with mental disabilities is as low 22 %. Providing them with professional skills, gives them a competitive edge in the employment sector.
   
 
 
 
Joe Scheimer, District 5180 Foundation Chair, defied the virus (yes, he got it not long before he was to head out to AZ) and rode in the “Ride to End Polio” bike ride on Nov 19th in Tucson, AZ with over 7K fellow cyclists riding for various charities.
 
Here’s Joe’s report:
 
“Despite coming down with COVID on Nov 9th, I was able to recover enough to finish the Ride to End Polio at the 39th El Tour Die Tucson. Three of us D5180 Rotarians did the Ride to Polio: Steve Brozosky did the Century (1-2 mi), John Meisner did the Metric Entry (62 mi), and I did the Half Century Metric (32 mi). 
 
How much did Joe raise (with our club’s support)??  42,389!  Great job Joe!
 
 
   
Let's face it.  The kids and their parents were wearing scarier costumes than the Fair Oaks Rotarians.  But hey, the point is to let everyone enjoy mid-day in Fair Oaks Village, improve the area's literacy index with the new and gently used books we hand out, and keep local dentists fully employed.  We're so good at it now that you can plan on seeing us again next year.
