President Diane Woodruff was the club’s official Leprechaun, welcoming everyone with her jaunty hat and full beard honoring St. Patrick’s Day!  Diane proudly stated she has actually kissed the Blarney Stone and opened the weekly club luncheon with a corny Irish joke.
 
 
After President Diane thanked Elfrena Foord (Foord, Van Bruggen & Pajak) for the lovely piano melodies, proud Irishman Kelley Moran (Moran and Associates) gave the Thought for the Day asking Rotarians to close their eyes and meditate for a minute. He concluded by emphasizing the importance of taking care of our soul – a service to self.
 
Meeting sponsor Steve Horton, of UCP of Sacramento and Northern California, shared the history and scope of UCP, which began in 1955 providing services to families with children with cerebral palsy. Today, nearly 2,000 families with many different types of disabilities are served through a variety of programs.
 
The newly formed “Shamrockers,” comprised of some of our favorite Irishmen – Kevin Smith-Fagan (PBS KVIE), Kevin Williams (PBS KVIE) and John McIntyre (Mercy Foundation) -- serenaded the crowd with two Irish ditties and invited all to sing and clap along. 
 
Past President Susan Sheridan invited members of the Sacramento Children’s Home board and staff, including Roy Alexander and Todd Koolakian, to come forward to receive a donation from the club’s 2018 Sacramento Century cycling fundraiser.  SCH’S Crisis Nursery was the event beneficiary.  President Diane’s goal was to raise a net of $100,000 and, after much fanfare, Past President Susan presented a check for $115,000 and thanked all who made the Century a big success. 
 
Rayne McKenzie, an SCH board member and former client, gave a heartfelt testimonial about how the Crisis Nursery helped her and her family with a safety net of support. 
 
New member Andrew Mendonsa (Sharper Future) was inducted into the club, sponsored by Robyn Delong (Delong Real Estate) and David Brandenburger (Newmark Knight Frank). David introduced Andrew, who serves as CEO of Sharper Future, a professional psychological corporation that provides mental health, substance abuse and forensic rehabilitation and recovery services.
 
The weekly announcements all emphasized the fun that Rotarians have together and the commitment to the community.
 
Dive Bar Bus Tour - Past President John Frisch (Newmark Knight Frank) reminded Rotarians of the March 22nd Dive Bar Bus Trip with just 3 seats left to fill at $149 each, with the proceeds benefit job training at the Salvation Army.
 
Mystery Trip - Nancy Teichert promoted the April 6th Mystery Trip, and teased the promise of wildflowers and baked treats on the outing
 
Ski Trip - David Brandenburger invited skiers to sign up for the March 28th ski trip and experience first-hand the record-breaking snowpack in Tahoe. Sign-ups are open till March 25th.
 
Golf for Kids - Bob Miller (First US Community Credit Bank) reminded Rotarians of the May 6th golf tournament and encouraged golfers to sign up.
