A Message from Our President

  Bud Walmer 2014/15
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Orangevale!  This year we are joining our "Hearts & Hands in Service".  Each year this club has reached out a hand to help in our community and the world.  With a group of 30+ members we have changed lives…from the hungry, to the working poor, to the disabled and widowed as well as across the oceans as we battle Polio.  Our members include business owners,  managers, retired people & young professionals each with the dream to provide their time, talent & treasure to support our community through the ideals of friendship, fellowship and service.
            Founded in 1960, this year our club was named "Outstanding Medium Club" in District 5180!  In Club Service we hold socials, chamber mixers, promote each other's business.  In Vocational Service we support the value of high ethical standards in every aspect of life and recognize others in the community who strive for the same.  In Community Service, we reach out to lend a helping hand…to make Orangevale a better place.  Our focus this year is hunger, especially in children.  Our $4400 grant to the Orangevale Food Bank reflects our dedication and support.  In New Generations Service … our work with the youth, you will find us hosting a speech contest for high school students, essay contest for middle school students & art contest for elementary students as well as supporting literacy.  At each level, we are supporting honesty and integrity  in all experiences.  We sponsor high school and middle school Interact Clubs to help instill the ideals of service.  And finally in International Service we are reaching out to END POLIO NOW!  This is a worldwide effort  to eradicate polio once and for all.  We are also funding grants in third world countries and supporting a school in Honduras.
            If this sounds good to you…come join us for breakfast at La Placita Restaurant, 9272 Greenback Lane, Orangevale.  We meet on Friday mornings at 7am and are out the door at 8:15am.

Orangevale Rotarians are still on “Cloud Nine”!! 447 tickets were sold for our first crab feed fundraiser at Divine Savior Church on January 25.  Our guests were so impressed with the great food and service, that we expect our second crab feed  scheduled for January 24 next year to sell out!
Casa Roble graduate, Donna Mohr, returned to the Orangevale Rotary Club on Friday, August 9, to thank the Rotarians for sponsoring her as their outbound Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) student to Liege, Belgium (August 2012 to July 2013).  After spending nearly a year in Belgium, Donna had many amazing stories to tell and wonderful slides to show of the exciting, cultural adventure she had experienced.
Continuing to focus on literacy in the Orangevale community, Orangevale Rotary has launched a children’s book drive for August and September.  Rotary’s goal is to collect at least 500 “gently used” or new children’s books to donate to the Orangevale Food Bank which serves 700+ families each month.  Families with children will receive free books as well as food to nourish both their bodies and the love for reading.

On February 8 our French Rotary Youth Exchange student, Martin LeNouy, gave a very interesting Power Point presentation on his life in France. What beautiful photos of his region, Brittany, his home and family, and his small town on the coast. Following the presentation, members asked about his experiences to date in California. Jim Shoemake was pleased to hear that he "loves" Casa Roble and prefers school here. One of Martin's best experiences at Casa Roble this year was playing on the school's water polo team -- and earning a "letter"! We learned that Martin has signed up for the baseball team, although he has never played baseball... Yes, our Martin has a very "can do" personality! Martin's family arrives April 19 to spend 2 weeks touring the West with Martin. Our club will be hosting a welcome party for the LeNouy's on April 20. We all look forward to meeting his parents and sister and thanking them for sharing their son with us this year!



Annie Tautz became Orangevale Rotary's newest member!

Annie is in charge of business development at Schaubmayer Painting, Inc.

We're Glad to have Annie in our Organization!

Welcome to our club Annie!



Casa Roble Principal, Jim Shoemake was surpised at the February 8th meeting, to be honored with a plaque and appreciation for his outstanding efforts and accomplishments in his 2 1/2 years as Casa's Principal. Sadly, (for our community) the District has recognized Jim's worth and has rewarded him with an administrative position. Congratulations Principal Shoemake! We look forward to all of the great things that you'll do for San Juan Unified!

Thank you for you service!




 Ottomon teachers and students are the very happy recipients of a Rotary Literacy Grant. Orangevale Rotary was awarded a $2000 grant to purchase sets of leveled readers for the school library.  Since the arrival of the books in October, the children have enjoyed reading the creative stories and varied topics of the many colorful books.



A very big surprise and honor were in store for Brad Squires, Director of the Orangevale Food Bank, at Orangevale Rotary’s January 18 meeting. Brad was invited to attend the meeting to give an update on the progress and needs of the food bank. Following his short presentation, President Ann Hively began sharing a list of Brad’s many philanthropic endeavors both in Orangevale and worldwide, at the end of which he was honored with Rotary’s Citizen of the Year Award and a standing ovation.
