What Have We Been Up To?
Rotary Estate Sale!
The ongoing Rotary Estate Sale is a well oiled Machine! It seems druid this time of COVID families are staying home and refurbishing their homes. Our Rotary club has been providing curbside service for donations. These donations are sold to bolster our community giving needs or are donated to benefit in need families in our community. Last Saturday Dominic & Roland picked up two more trucks and a trailer load of materials. They are seen in these photos busy unloading. Our Rotary partner, Umpqua Bank, has been gracious enough to allow some items to be displayed in the bank lobby for sale to benefit Rotary.

August 24, 2020 The Rotary Club of Foothill-Highlands Demotion Golf Tournament for President Roland Wright starts with a short speech by Past President Patrick Magnani. Treasurer Dominic Mecklenburg sets up the first ball on the tee to be started off by his guest Steve Aicher. As you can see from this video the ball explodes upon contact! This was just the beginning of the fun and practical jokes during our play on the course, as there was an unannounced air horn on one fairway and we tee’d off with an Easton on another hole as well.  In attendance was our newest President, Marilee Monagan, Brent Sizer and their two friends Sallie  Kay and Mike Stodghill. We also were joined by our newest Rotarian Miguel Benitez for great day on the course.  It was definitely a much-needed day of outdoor fun and fellowship.
Our small but mighty club has given for decades to support vocational scholarships at American River College. We are so proud of this partnership!
 Typically, we get a visit and/or a thoughtful note from all the recipients. This year, we received something that we can share so you can see and hear for yourself where some of our fundraising efforts and dollars generated get reinvested into the community. Listen to where the students are, and where they plan to go...enjoy!

Community Service Project, On May 6th
Our Rotary Club was contacted by the Antelope Lions Club asking for assistance with their food donation program “Antelope Feeding Antelope and Beyond”. The Foothill-Highlands Rotary Club supported this event with $300.00 for food combined with other donations from Lions, Prices, Sysco, The Point Church and others. On May 6th, Patrick Magnani, Marilee Monagan, Dominic Mecklenburg & Roland Wright were on-site to represent Rotary and set up and distribute food on the outdoor patio area at the Taste of Tuscany. The owners Jeremy & Natalie Price, are Sacramento Antelope Lions Club members and are using their restaurant as the staging area for this food donation project. A DJ with 103.9FM The Fish was on-site with music in support of the event. Of course we implemented social distancing, masks and gloves to keep everyone safe. Fresh food consisted of: potatoes, onions, bell peppers, cucumbers, lettuce, carrots, celery, beans, rice, bread, eggs, chicken, sausage, pasta, marinara sauce and more!  We served over 100 families and still had some left over for seniors at a nearby elder home.
We had a fabulous District Governor visit today! DG Ray Ward and his travel insurance Stacy Graham, ADG Dave and  Michaeline Veden. They really enjoyed the day with Foothill-Highlands Rotary Club on the yacht “At Last” out of Miller Park, Sacramento. There were 18 aboard the ship as the cruise left the marina and voyaged upriver to the I-80 bridge and down river to south Sacramento and back. Glorious day on the water! Thanks to Captain Dick and Admiral Sam for the voyage!
On December 20th, just in time for Christmas,  Foothill-Highlands Rotarians distributed dictionaries at Hillsdale Elementary School in North Highlands to Mrs Stilton 3rd Grade Class. It was heartwarming to witness the excitement of the kids when they learned each of them would get their very own dictionary to take home. Each student enthusiastically took a pledge to learn one new word every day.
PP Dominic Mecklenburg introduced our speakers Olivia and Emily from Rio Linda High School who our club sponsored at this years RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awakening) Camp, they will be seniors this fall.Olivia and Emily shared some of there personal experiences and activities that they took part in. They had a great time and the camp gave them more confidence.

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.
