The Rotary Club of Sacramento elegantly ushered in KEVIN SMITH-FAGAN (Executive Director of Fairytale Town) as the 107th President of the Club. It was a sunny day in Zoomland and the backdrops of our Rotarians varied from lakes in the Trinity Alps to FairyTale Town. The smell of lavender, mint, and baked chicken filled the….oh, wait, we are on Zoom. KERRY WOOD (Sacramento Region Community Foundation) successfully led the meeting with movies, guests, and slide shows with over 96 participants from around the world (including ROB SCHERER from Puerto Vallarta 85 degrees but feels like 95 with clouds).

Thought of the Day
 
The Thought of the Day was provided by MAGGIE HOPKINS (Capital Premier Lending & Premier Realty) as she looked to Fred Rogers of the famed Mr. Rogers Neighborhood for the timeless quote that when times are bad “look for the helpers,” you can always find people helping.  MAGGIE’s quote serves to reaffirm the Rotary’s overall principle and motto, “service above self.”
 
Guests!
 
ALLISON CAGLEY provided a warm welcome to the first family including NANCY SMITH-FAGAN, AIDEN SMITH-FAGAN, BRENDON SMITH-FAGAN, and EAMON SMITH-FAGANALLISON expressed her concerns about the pandemic, social unrest and the true meaning of KEVIN SMITH-FAGAN’s presidency.

Yes, we know that end is near as the Rotary Rockers World Tour was canceled, an asteroid just missed the Earth, the Cleveland Lakes (formerly Indians) have not won since 1948, and of course, KEVIN SMITH-FAGAN is our 107th President!
 
 
 

In the past 16 years as a member of the Rotary Club of Sacramento, there have been countless opportunities for Service Above Self.

There was a project when I was a relatively new member that really ignited my Rotary Spirit.  The Reading, Rover and Rotary Committee brought our Rotary Club members and their dogs to an elementary school in Del Paso where we sat with students one-on-one and listened as they read to us and our dogs.  For many of these students, english was not their native language.

The dog I brought with me was our German Shepherd named Kobe who was quite large and could be misconstrued as menacing but was really a softie who loved to spend time with the kids.  As we listened to the students read aloud it allowed them to build their confidence in a non-judgmental, safe environment. The program also created a positive experience to help many kids get over their fear of dogs. Kobe became a fan favorite with many of the students. I’ve included a picture at an awards ceremony the school held for us and the students.

 The weekly meetings of the Rotary Club of Sacramento are at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, located at 600 Alhambra Blvd; Parking is on 30th Street, Sacramento, CA 95816.
