Upcoming Events
What Have We Been Up To?
Two Senior Homes Serenaded by
Fair Oaks Rotary Carolers
  
 
 
As we have done for several years, despite no auditions and a barely obvious lack of rehearsals, the caroling chorus from the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks subjected entertained audiences at two local senior homes with a selection of holiday melodies.  This year the ensemble added two ukeleles and a harmonica, which seemed to increase the applause a few decibels... perhaps.  This is so much fun that we'd probably do it with no applause, so I suppose we'll be back next year.
Full Tummies This Holiday Season,
Thanks to Fair Oaks Rotary
  
 
   
 
  
 
  
It starts with the teachers at two Fair Oaks elementary schools identifying families who could use some supplemental food during the holidays.  Then the food arrives.  Then it goes into the boxes, all 96 sets of two.  Finally, as after-school pickups begin, it's loaded on to hand trucks and rolled to the curb.  The last delivery is well after dark.  If this looks like your idea of fun, you just might be a Rotarian at heart.  Come join our club and we'll do it again next year.
 
Fair Oaks Rotary Beautifies Madison Avenue...
Again & Again & Again
  
Faithful readers of this website know that we're out there on Madison Avenue between Kenneth and Chicago every three months, renewing our amazement at what people toss out of car windows as we clean up their mess.  This time it looks like we recruited a few high school students and at least one elementary student.  Although there is no photo of the Rotary fuel (coffee and donuts for the uninformed), I'm told it was there.  [Your usually reliable reporter was not present, which accounts for the not-normally-seen duplication in a few of the photos.]  Look for us again in... let's see, March, I guess.
 
Ugandan School Gets Water Tank,
Thanks to Fair Oaks Rotary
  
When Fair Oaks Rotarian Geri Beck got the word that the village school in Kiyunga, Uganda, needed funds to purchase and install a water tank to store collected rainwater, she brought the idea to the club's International Service committee and the $1,500 to complete the project was quickly approved.  The photos above were recently received showing the tank and presumably the prep work needed to install it.  Who knows?  Maybe one of these years, some of us will go to check it out.
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.
