What We Do

Lincoln Service Clubs
  We are Best of the Best
Again, Rotary Club of Lincoln was chosen as the Best Service Club in Lincoln at Lincoln News Messenger's annual event.  This is another feather in our cap, as our award represents the choice by our community based on a "people's choice" voting process by the LNM.  We have won this honor for at least the last three years, but who's keeping track.  Click on this link to see what we did this last Rotary year. 

President Harvey's First Meeting
   A Rotary Tribute to America
Harvey started the year out right with his musical and otherwise Rotary Tribute since 4th of July was right around the corner. Lots of fun and enjoyment!
On a more serious note, we made our annual funding of $1,000 to Friends of the Lincoln Library and gave $500 to the Art League of Lincoln in response to a mini-grant request to assist with student art workshops during this summer.
Expect more great things to follow!

We have FUN!!!
   Kickout of President Art
     Welcome New President Harvey
This was another night of fun for our club, especially at the expense of President Art.  Starting out with the goofy high school senior class picture and taking credit for his engineering career in the nuclear industry, his latest career as President of Rotary Club of Lincoln was reviewed. 
The final deed of the Kickout was Art turning over the office of president to Harvey Ulijohn for the upcoming Rotary year.

Tour de Lincoln
 Ophir Road Rest Stop
As we have been doing for many years, Rotarians woke up early to get supplies at the McBean Pavilion and set them up on Ophir Road (near I-80 west of Auburn).  We handed out fruit, drinks and other goodies as the Tour de Lincoln riders readied themselves to go up the hill and return to Lincoln. Thanks to Ed Prokopik for taking the lead on organizing this and to the others who volunteered.

We Sponsor Axiom Youth Center
At our May 14th meeting, we presented a check for $5,000 to Emmaus Church Community.  Nate Oats and Sandie Haskins accepted the check and said that this will enable them to get the matching grant that will start the Youth Center in August.  They already have the facility at 420 Lincoln Blvd essentially furnished and the Axiom sign is on the door.  See their website www.TheAxiom. Axiom means "an assumed truth" and this is that the kids of this community matter.

Rotary Work Day
At the Salt Mine
Rotary Work Day is a day when all Rotary Clubs do a project.  It is normally the last Saturday of April.  Since our District Rotary Conference was on that weekend, we elected to have our Work Day on May 9th. And we chose to assist the Salt Mine with food sorting of food donated by Placer Food Bank and others so that it could be distributed to those in need. We expect to continue our association with the Salt Mine in other similar projects.  
For those unaware, the Salt Mine at 590 Lincoln Blvd. is a California nonprofit public benefit charity, with a purpose and mission of enhancing and improving the lives of the young people and their families in Lincoln and surrounding communities. The Salt Mine offers children’s programs, youth programs, and adult training and teaching, as well as an aggressive feeding program that provides emergency food, clothing and household items for needy families in our area.  In addition to accepting food, they accept other donations for sale and distribution at their two area thrift stores.  www.SaltMine.Org

Service Project - Visit to VillaDelRey and Lincoln Meadows 
Thanks to the leadership of acting Service Chair Kimberly Fricke, ~9 members and a friend ventured to these two senior care facilities on Saturday morning to deliver Easter Gift bags.  The gift bags contained puzzle books, crossword puzzles, pinwheels and small boxes of candy.  Most of the residents were very pleased with our visit and appreciated the gift bags, conversations, and attention that members gave.  A very rewarding experience.

Community Blood and Platelet Drive
The Lincoln Community Blood and Platelet Drive was an awesome success. Thank You to all who came to donate. Thank you to the Placer-Nevada Cattlewomen for serving those "to-die-for" cookies and brownies. Unofficial count is 56 registered donating 48 pints of whole blood plus 7 platelet donations. Per Gayle Graves of BloodSource: "Omg this is amazing! .... I cant express in words how much we appreciate all you guys do. It is truly amazing!!"

Shelly Hoover on ALS
Shelly Hoover was our speaker at the January 15th Lunch meeting. She spoke about "Her Journey with ALS."  And an amazing journey it has been. Shelly was previously the principal at Glen Edwards Middle School,  She started having trouble walking, and the disease has led to her lower extremities being paralyzed. She now gets around quite well using her motorized wheel chair (actually a bit higher tech than most!). In addition to the customary children's book for the Lincoln Library, we present her a check for ALS in her honor.    There are more articles on Shelly in the last two Lincoln News Messengers.  Check the Lincoln News Messenger Website.

Spreading the Joy of Christmas Giving
Literacy is one our club's passions. After our meeting on December 18th, we delivered 168 children's books to the Lighthouse Family Counseling and Resource Center. These books were generously donated by our members so that the Lighthouse could provide these to families in need of reading materials for their children.    
Later, we delivered small Christmas Trees to the residents at the Lincoln Meadows Care Center.  This was an awesome experience for members and those at the Care Center.  
Thanks to our Community Service Chair Rose Ruiz for organizing both events.


Creekside Oaks Garden Cleanup Service Project


With the help of LHS Key/Interact members, and Victoria McCoy and her daughter Julissa, we worked for about two hours weeding and cleaning up the garden at Creekside Oaks Elementary Garden.  

We pulled weeds.  We hoed.  We spaded. We raked. We trimmed.  We piled the weeds and then stuffed them into bags for the school groundskeepers to remove.  We talked.  We laughed. We sweated!  We drank water.  We had some snacks.  Most of all we worked hard and had fun.  Performing service for others is good for the heart.


Thank you to Kris Wyatt for organizing this project. Thanks to all who participated.
