“One common trait of Rotarians is that we are committed to making the world a better place.  A gift to the Foundation through your estate helps further the ideals and impact of Rotary in perpetuity.” - Larry Gilzean
President Dan McVeigh opened the meeting by noting that there are only six more weeks to enjoy his leadership of our wonderful club. He then went on to give us account of the greatest hits from 1914 – the year our club was founded – with special acknowledgment of It’s a Long Way to Tipperary.
   President Dan then thanked Aaron French (Zanker Recycling) for handling the Music,    Paul Stone and Jeff Stone (John O Bronson Co/HUB Int'l) for the terrific piano      playing,  and Ted Kappel (Kappel Mortgage Group) and Past President Scot    Sorensen (St.  John's Program for Real Change) for being today’s greeters.
 Doing double duty Past President Scot Sorensen provide the thought for the day by  asking the Lord to disturb us with a prayer written by Sir Francis Drake in 1577 and in  honor of deceased member Bob Biko, who shared the same prayer at a meeting a number of years ago.
Sgt-At-Arms Tom Bacon (Kidder Mathews) introduced our guests including seven prospective members. Three visiting Rotarians were acknowledged; Sherry Tobin from El Dorado who is the Rotary District Rotarian of the Year, and Wyn Spiller from Grass Valley who is the Rotary Regional Foundation Coordinator and her husband Steve Spiller. Following their introductions, we were admonished by President Dan to be on our best behavior due to having a couple of Mucky Mucks in the room.
President Dan continued with the introductions as he welcomed his guests at the head table that included our speaker Dr. Jan Aileen Nolta, Judy Kjelstron (UC Davis), Past President Scot Sorensen (St. John's Program for Real Change), new member Christie Holderegger and Elfrena Foord (Foord, Van Bruggen, & Pajak).
Following introductions, Christie Holderegger from Volunteers of America was welcomed as the newest member of the club.
 Tim Pinkney stepped to the podium to introduce our newest Rotary Fellow, Bob Daly (Financial Network Wealth Advisors). For the past 10 years, Bob has been one of the go to guys in the club in terms of involvement. Most notably was numerous years as chair of the Golf for Kids Tourney and the founder and Chair of the Pony Express Marathon. A well-deserved honor for an individual that was left speechless.
  President Dan acknowledged and thanked Past President Fred and Nancy Teichert   (Teichert Foundation) for opening their home to host the annual Legacy Circle Dinner.  During the dinner two new names were added to the list of Legacy Immortals, Bill  Stone and Oleta Lambert.
 The highlight of any meeting is the numerous announcements. Bob Daly started off by  thanking the Boy Scouts for letting us use their warehouse to store club materials. Regrettably, we need to move and he thanked Dave Higdon (California Moving Systems) for helping put our supplies in containers and now we need to clean up the remnants and haul it off to the dump. If you have, a truck and can help out please contact Bob. Dennis Cook (Cook Brown, LLP) gave a pitch for Son’s Day on June 13th where we will be treated to a presentation by a former SR71 pilot; Roy Alexander (Sacramento Children's Home) let us know that there are 2 tickets still available for the Phantom of the Opera this Saturday; Bob Miller (First US Community Credit Union) put in a plug for Golf for Kids on August 7th at Valley Hi Country Club; and President Dan invited everyone to the President’s Breakfast on this Friday at Ettore’s. He also let us know it is called the President’s breakfast because the President will be there.

Enhancing the state’s economic growth has been the goal of Zaremberg’s activities. He has headed statewide ballot campaigns to close the legal loophole that permitted shakedown lawsuits, to assure adequate funding for transportation infrastructure and to oppose anti-business proposals that would have raised the cost of health care, electricity and public works. He led negotiations culminating in comprehensive reforms of workers’ compensation, endangered species laws, and other key issues.
He oversees the CalChamber Business Services Division, which provides employment law expertise through handbooks, services and products, including HRCalifornia, a continually updated website.​
Before joining CalChamber, Zaremberg served as chief legislative advisor to and advocate for Governors George Deukmejian and Pete Wilson.
Zaremberg served as a captain and flight navigator on a KC-135 jet air refueling tanker while in the U.S. Air Force from 1970 to 1975.
He holds a B.S. in economics from Penn State University and a J.D. from the McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific, where he was a member of the Law Journal.
Please extend a warm Rotary welcome to our newest members Christie Holderegger Elizabeth Cassin, Dr. Winston Eddy & Margo Fowkes
