President Dan McVeigh opened the meeting by welcoming everyone and thanking Jon Snyder (Snyder Commercial Real Estate) for donating the wine for the wine reception, thanking Kevin Williams (KVIE) and Aaron French (Zanker Road Resource Management) for the introductory musical interlude, Set Up Crew Ted White (Sacramento Delta Property, and Art Breuer, and greeters Laura Heintz (Stanford Youth Solutions) and Kathy Herffelt (Home Care Assistance).

In preparation for our speaker’s topic on the question of legalizing marijuana, Robyn DeLong’s (Coldwell Banker), “Thought for the Day” consisted of both thoughtful and hilarious quotes around the theme of keeping an open mind and challenging one’s assumptions when discussing a controversial issue.  Very mind expanding!  Thanks Robyn!

After the Pledge of Allegiance, President Dan introduced the head table:  Chair of the Day P.P. John Frisch (Cornish & Carey Commercial), our guest speaker Jeff Hastings, meeting sponsor Ted White, member Jay Lowden (YMCA of Superior California), and New Members Virginia Varela, Denise Santiago, and Mike Cook. 

Sargent-at-Arms Tom Bacon (Kidder Mathews) then introduced our Guests, Prospective Members and Visiting Club members.  Of particular note was Sanar Singh Karki visiting from Kathmandu, Nepal, whom we heard from later in the meeting.

President Dan announced that the Sponsor of the Day was Ted White who graciously donated his time to Jay Lowden of the YMCA of Superior California.  In particular Jay urged everyone to consider attending the Camp Capital City event on September 24.  Camp Capital City is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for adults to relive beloved camp days - featuring a gourmet barbecue dinner and s'mores dessert bar beer by Bike Dog Brewing, wine by Bogle Vineyards, live music by Ross Hammond, and your favorite camp games and activities - including archery, rock climbing, horseshoes and more! PLUS, a wine-pull and live auction with packages including a Disneyland family getaway, a 7-night Oregon coast retreat, a weekend stay at Bear Valley Y Camp in the High Sierra, and more!

It was time for one of the best parts of any meeting which is the induction of new members, all three of which are in leadership positions for Golden Pacific Bank.  They are President and CEO Virginia Varela, AVP and Branch Manager Denise Santiago, and Senior Vice President Mike Cook.  Welcome all!

Rotary Club of Sacramento Foundation President Jim Leet (Boutin Jones Inc.) was invited to step forward to recognize several longtime members for their generosity.  Len McCandless was honored for his 30th year with the RCOS and his 4th Eddie Mulligan, P.P. Hal Bartholomew (Bartholomew & Wasznicky LLP) for his 31st year with the RCOS and his 5th Eddie Mulligan, P.D.G. Fred Teichert (Teichert Foundation) for his 30th year with the RCOS and his 7th Eddie Mulligan, and Don Brown for his 35th year with RCOS and his 7th Eddie Mulligan.   That’s a total of 126 years and 23 Eddie Mulligans for those of you keeping score at home!

Thank you very much for being our "Meeting Sponsor"!

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.
