What We Do

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!!"

Historic First Sunset Meeting 
The historic first Sunset Meeting of the club was held at Buonarrati's Ristorante in Lincoln.
Clark Osterhout called the meeting to order and welcomed 15 members and guests.  The purpose of a Sunset Meeting is to provide the membership with the option to meet in the early evening, twice a month, being a more practical time for Lincoln residents who work here or elsewhere. 
Our newest member Maribel Perez was inducted into Rotary by President Art Deardorff.  A warm welcome was given to Maribel by the membership. 
Clark discussed Lincoln Rotary membership and currently there are about 50 members with a plan to increase membership to 70 members in about two years  He also discussed the purpose of Rotary, community involvement, fundraisers, and an exciting core group at the Sunset Meeting.   
A handout of the Club's service projects and committees including committee chairs was provided to the membership. Each member will be on a committee to assist in the mission of Rotary - "Service Above Self."  Clark advised that the major fundraisers will be the Taste of Italy, Lincoln Wine Fest, and Nite at the Races.  Clark also encouraged the membership to think of community service projects; it may be a family in need, literacy, etc.
Clark will remain the leader of the Sunset Meeting through June.  Harvey Ulijohn, the President-Elect, will be assembling a leadership team for the 2015-2016 year.

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.

Report on our Ajijic Mexico Project
Several years ago, we used a Rotary Foundation grant to help in a project to combat high mortality rate among women in the rural Mexican community of Ajijic by providing screenings for cervical and breast cancer.  This project was just recently featured in the November 2014 Rotary Leader.  For the full story - Click Link.
