What Have We Been Up To?
District Dictionary Project
As part of an Annual District-Wide Project, The Rotary Club of Foothill-Highlands adopted three schools in its service area and purchased dictionaries for their third-grade students. On Friday, January 13th, 53 "lucky" students at Creative Connections Arts Academy received their allocation. Pictured are President Dominic Mecklenburg, PP Bob Meyer and several students. President Dominic asked the students to make a promise to "learn one new word every day." From the smiles on their faces, they are enjoying their new dictionaries. Two additional schools will be visited within the next few weeks.
 
In keeping with this month’s Rotary International Theme—Vocational Service—members of the Rotary Club of Foothill-Highlands toured the Roseville Telephone Museum on Vernon Street in historic Roseville.

Foothill-Highlands Rotarians gathered on December 12th at Freedom Park in North Highlands to dedicate a bench to the North Highlands Parks and Recreation District.
 
 
 
During the month of August, the Rotary Club of Foothill-Highlands collected backpacks for under-served youth in our service area.
THANK YOU to everyone who donated backpacks. Great Job!!!!!
A BIG THANK YOU TO SAM MORGAN AND DICK BIDDLE WHO DONATED 16 BACKPACKS TONIGHT TO OUR PROJECT AND BROUGHT OUR GRAND TOTAL TO 26.
Rotary Around the World:
PP and PEN Patrick Magnani returned on the first week of August from his three-week trip to France.  Patrick was hoping to visit three Rotary clubs during his visit; but due to time constraints, he was only able to visit one club—The Rotary Club of Paris Porte d'Orléans where he exchanged club banners. Patrick and family on the left of photo.
During the summer months, the clubs in France only meet  twice per month.  There were 12 Rotarians at the meeting he attended.

Perfect Attendance Program
Under the direction of Youth Services Director Patrick Magnani, the Rotary Club of Foothill-Highlands once again sponsored the Perfect Attendance Program for the Community Outreach Academy in McClellan, CA.  There were 115 students who qualified.  Almost all of them attended the event on 5/31/16, accompanied by four chaperones, three bus drivers and their sixth-grade teacher, Mr. Tim Strauch, II, in charge.  Their reward was a few hours of food, fun and arcade games at John’s Incredible Pizza in Roseville in celebration of their fine accomplishment.  Each of these students did not miss one day of school all year long.  WOW!!!  They were extremely grateful to Rotary for our continued sponsorship. 
Thanks to PE Dominic Mecklenburg and Jeff Donlevy for representing the club at the festivities.
