EndLocalHunger™

Placer County boasts a median income of $72,900 per year. Sadly, 1 in 6 people in our prosperous county routinely go hungry; over 17,000 million facing hunger are children. The hungry person could be a neighbor, a friend, a co-worker, many are veterans. In the underserved communities around us, children, mothers, and seniors suffer the most.

The mission of the EndLocalHunger project is to donate delicious, nutritious, and easy to cook BagOfLife meals to those facing hunger through local food banks, community service organizations, and college/university food pantries.

Come and learn how individuals, families, and business can join hands to help end local hunger.

Every year the outgoing president recognizes a Rotarian who exemplifies "Service Above Self."  This year our President, Dan Palmer, recognized a member of our club who has shown what it is to be a true Rotarian.  As our Sergeant of Arms, Joe, sets up our meetings - making sure all our supplies are readily available, signs are hung on the walls, and we are prepared.  He also leads us each and every week in the Pledge of Allegiance and makes sure we participate in Split the Pot and our Happy/Sad bucks.  There have been very few meetings that Joe has missed for his occasional family commitment or his occasional vacation - either one, he always comes back with great stories.

Congratulations Joe!  Well deserved!

Service Above Self, our 4-Way test, international projects = an opportunity to hear our upcoming speaker this Tuesday as she shares with us her passion and dedication to Families for Humanity.  Amber Farman will be our speaker and she will be brining us information on her upcoming Guatemala project.  Her organization visits orphanages and schools and brings needed school supplies to these children in need.  Why is this so important to our Rotary Club?  It's important because we are looking into working closely with Amber and her organization to partner with them as our international project.  We are exploring the opportunity to visit Guatemala with our Interact members. 

 

So please make sure you are able to attend this important Rotary meeting.

We began our Adopt-A-Creek program with a work day on April 26th.  We had a great showing from our club and thanks to Louise Dutton, we ended up with a few extra volunteers who saw our project in the Loomis News!  Thanks to all the hard work of our rotary club, our interact club and our community volunteers.  We are looking forward to continuing our project and getting these creeks cleaned up!  Enjoy the pictures.  If you want to see more pictures of this project, please go to our Facebook page - Loomis Sunset Rotary Club!

Is it the Truth?

Is it Fair to all concerned?

Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?

Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
