What Have We Been Up To?
Can Halloween Ever Be Safe?
Yes, For Sure!  With the Fair Oaks Rotary!
  
 
    
 
  
The last week of October, AKA Dentist Full Employment Week, always finds the Fair Oaks Rotary trying to do our part by ensuring  that the children of Fair Oaks have an adequate supply of sweets for the coming winter.  This annual Halloween extravaganza also serves as an excuse for many to costume up and shed a few years.  And to demonstrate to the parents of Fair Oaks that Rotarians value things other than candy and frivolity, we give every trick-or-treater a free new or gently-used book.  If this all looks to you like it's fun, well, you got the idea.  Look for us again next year.
The Chicken Festival is Back!
And Fair Oaks Rotary was There!
 
 
  
After a one year COVID hiatus, the Fair Oaks Chicken Festival has returned, and to a brand new location, Fair Oaks Park.  And the Fair Oaks Rotary was there in our traditional role of hydrating the masses who are in attendance, and raising money for the many projects we do throughout the year.  As is apparent from the pictures, it was a pretty nice day and we sold all the beer, so you can probably look for us again next year.
 
FO Rotary & FO/OV Food Bank...
Still an Item?
You'd Better Believe It!
 
 
 
If you're a regular reader of this space, you realize that the Fair Oaks Rotary began supplying the Fair Oak-Orangevale Food Bank with volunteer help in May 2020, a few months after the pandemic showed how food insecure some in our area were.  Are we still in the game?  Absolutely!  Fill a need and have fun... it doesn't get any better than that.
Women's Empowerment Graduates Class #84
And Fair Oaks Rotary is There
 
 
 
Women's Empowerment is a local Sacramento organization that provides job training and other life skills for homeless women, usually graduating several classes a year.  They have an 85%+ rate of getting their graduates into long-term jobs and housing.  For the last several years, Fair Oaks Rotary has provided logistical and moral support for the September graduation luncheon, and this year was no exception.  In addition, their director Lisa Culp spoke at the club's weekly meeting and was given a check for $1,000.  Since this has the main aspects of a Rotary project, service and fun, it's likely we'll be back next year.
Fair Oaks Rotary Rubbish Squad
Beautifies Madison Avenue
 
Enough Fair Oaks Rotarians showed up to get the job done... and the lone BV Interactor also helped... but maybe we should try one extra club meeting announcement next time.  What was the job?  If you follow this website closely, you know it's the quarterly Madison Avenue cleanup.  The weather was beautiful, the coffee was wonderful, and the donuts were... ABSENT!  Despite that, the crew pressed on and expressed their usual amazement at what people toss out of their car windows.  Look for us again in about three months.
