Introductions of visitors, guests and prospective members were made. A special welcome was offered to Sandi Sava from the Sacramento Breakfast Club who is the District Governor Elect.
President Dan gave an update on Denise Mazzucca-Barrett (Macias Gini & O’Connell) and asked everyone to keep her in your prayers and thought, and if you have a chance to send her a card.

A big thank s to Marilyn Park for donating her 3 minutes of fame at this weeks meeting to bring us an update from our 2012 Bids 4 Kids beneficiary, Society for the Blind.  
Shari Roeseler's message:
Our eyesight affects how we perceive and interpret the world.  It is used every day for communication, pursuing professional goals, caring for other and for ourselves.  When people learn they are losing their eyesight, they are devastated.   Society for the Blind is here for just that purpose.
Society's efforts range from a focus on workforce development for youth and adults to keeping seniors with vision loss safe and active.
Society's state of the are teaching facility and low vision clinic is located in midtown Sacramento.  They provide direct services to 6,000 people yearly.  By 2020, they anticipate that number will double.  Society plans to be poised to meeting the need through the launch of their Vision2020 campaign so anyone experiencing vision loss has a place to go for support and education and can continue to live life to the fullest.
Leading their efforts are Rotarians Marilyn Park and Allison Otto.

"Nothing makes me happier than when I hear from a student or recent graduate who has found her or his niche in the legal community and is out using the skills they learned in my classes to solve legal problems. I love that as a professor I get to have a role in supporting people at a critical juncture in their professional, and often personal, journey to a satisfying career." — Professor Mary-Beth Moylan

NEWS: Mary-Beth Moylan was interviewed on Capital Public Radio's Insight program on Oct. 20, 2016 about conflicting propositions on the November ballot. Listen.

Professor Mary-Beth Moylan is the Director of Global Lawyering Skills ("GLS"), the nationally recognized, required two-year skills program that introduces students to a broad range of core lawyering skills that include, legal research, writing, and oral advocacy, as well as client interviewing, client counseling, negotiation, and drafting. Professor Moylan is also the co-author of Global Lawyering Skills (West 2013), a legal skills textbook that is unique in the market for its focus on cross-border and cross-cultural considerations in lawyering skills and practice. In addition to her responsibilities directing, writing, and teaching in the GLS program, Professor is also the co-director of the Advocacy and Dispute Resolution Center. In this capacity, she has the chance to bring advocacy programming to McGeorge, including the annual Lou Ashe Distinguished Lecture Series, and support our outstanding advocacy competition teams for mock trial and moot court.

Is your high school band or orchestra instrument still hanging out in your closet, waiting for a second chance?  Did your kids leave their band instruments in there, too? If so, the Rotary Club of Orangevale has an offer that you should not resist. We will find a home for that horn or stringed instrument in the hands of a promising young middle or high school student!
We have established a relationship with San Juan Arts (part of the San Juan Unified School District) to place good student and professional-quality musical instruments with selected students under an instrument loan program.  Music directors at the schools with music programs will identify promising young students who will benefit from working with an instrument suited to an advanced player, and who may not have the resources to obtain one. We will refurbish your instrument as needed, give it to San Juan Arts for inventory control, and San Juan Arts will loan the instrument to the selected student for the duration of his or her middle and/or high school career.
In 2016, we successfully placed reed instruments with selected students at Bella Vista High School and Carnegie Middle School, and we now have the opportunity to expand the program into other San Juan schools. We also purchased one new instrument for a deserving trumpet player. For 2016-2017, we have been granted matching funds from Rotary District 5180 to supplement our instrument repair and purchase budget.
