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..."
