In 2017-18, we’ll answer the question “What is Rotary?” with RI President Ian H.S. Riseley’s theme, Rotary: Making a Difference. “Whether we’re building a new playground or a new school, improving medical care or sanitation, training conflict mediators or midwives, we know that the work we do will change people’s lives — in ways large and small — for the better.”

 
Starting Monday, January 29 and going through Friday, February 9, members of the Rotary Clubs of Folsom and Historic Folsom are giving every third grader in Folsom a dictionary.  Below is a photo of some of the third graders at Gold Ridge Elementary School on January 30 after they received their dictionaries.
 
 
On Saturday, November 11, 2017, the Rotary Clubs of Folsom, Folsom Lake,  and Historic Folsom participated in the 17th Annual Veterans Parade in Folsom.  Members of the Folsom High School Interact Club and the Folsom Lake High Interact Club marched with Rotarians and Rotary family members.  The Rotary group also included three classic cars and four Rotarians on Segways.

The Rotary Club of Folsom participated in Community Service Day on Saturday, September 16 in a big way.  Twenty-six members worked from early morning to late afternoon installing a 13-person Cross Fit rig at Willow Hill Reservoir Community Park.  The Rotary Club of Folsom purchased the Cross Fit rig for this park at a cost of $12,500.  On Sunday, October 15, the club completed the project with the addition of wood fiber under the rig.
 
 
On Thursday, August 24, members of the Rotary Clubs of Folsom and Historic Folsom gathered on the Johnny Cash Bike Trail at the Donor Wall for the unveiling of a Rotary plaque.  The Donor Wall is for individuals and organizations who have donated to the Johnny Cash Art Experience.  Robert Goss, City of Folsom Parks and Recreation Director, conducted the ceremony.

Seven of our club members and two of their spouses traveled to Colima, Mexico to make improvements to an orphanage that serves approximately 60 children. This is the second year that Folsom Rotarians and spouses have traveled to Colima for a project at the orphanage.  
 
 
Bill Hutto, Bobby & Becky Blackwell, Joe & Maureen Gagliardi, Vicki Warner, Chuck Thurman, John Messner and Rosario Rodriquez, our newest member, participated and completed a walkway between the boys and girls dormitories, and constructed and painted a steel structure over the walkway that will support a roof to protect the children during the rainy season.
 
On Tuesday, March 14, 2017, 50 community business leaders met with 50 Folsom High School juniors at the 22nd Partnerships for Tomorrow Youth Leadership Conference held at Lakeside Church. This conference unites high school students with business and community leaders representing the City of Folsom to discuss leadership skills and ethical choices in the work place, in schools, and in the local and global community.

At the Rotary Club of Folsom meeting on January 19, 20 teachers from Folsom schools received grants totaling $7,500.  The amount of each grant ranged from $156 to $500.  This year, the Rotary Club of Folsom teamed up with the Rotary Club of Folsom Lake for this project.  In addition to the funds from each club, just over $1,400 was donated by a member of the club.  Bob Mange introduced each teacher who was at the meeting and Megan Ham, President of the Rotary Club of Folsom Lake, presented the checks.  Upon receiving the checks, each teacher explained his/her project.
