This is a reminder that there is NO Rotary meeting on Tuesday, February 21, 2017. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 28, 2017 at the Dante Club!
 
Our guest speaker will be Greg Lucas - CA State Librarian
 
RCOS Staff 

        President Dan McVeigh opened the meeting by welcoming everyone and thanking Mike Bullington (Pacific Advisors) for his piano interlude, Kevin Williams (KVIE) for his additional musical selections, and greeters Diane Schachterle (American Civil Rights Institute) and Sylvia Fitzgerald (AAES (Antiques, Appraisals & Estate Services).

In observation of Sweetheart’s Day, Tanya Kravchuk (Children’s Receiving Home) Thought for the Day appealed to the highest aspirations of love:  “Valentine’s Day – The Big Romance Day – is a wonderful day for gifts, and if you celebrate it, I hope you enjoy the day to the fullest.  For me, loving someone is a daily exercise, a daily celebration, a daily acknowledgement beyond chocolates, flowers or jewelry.  I try to celebrate love all year long, every day.”  She ended by reciting that ultimate expression of love set forth in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.  A great start!

After the Pledge of Allegiance, Sargent-At-Arms Tom Bacon (Kidder Matthews) introduced our Guests, Prospective Members and Visiting Club members who were welcomed warmly.

President Dan introduced the head table:  Chairs of the Day Dave Higdon (California Moving Systems) and Becki Roberts (Central Valley Community Bank), Dave Higdon’s wife Kathy Higdon, Becki Robert’s husband Gary Roberts, and President Dan’s own wife Rebecca Baumann.

The Meeting Sponsor was none other than Past President Hal Bartholomew (Bartholomew & Wasznicky LLP), a well-known and respected family law attorney.  Past President Hal spoke particularly of his divorce practice whose goal is to get through the divorce process with dignity.  He works with couples who want a divorce but what to do so in an orderly, non-adversarial, and respectful way.

With that, it was announcements time followed by the ever favorite Roast, Boast and Toast.  Sylvia Fitzgerald (AAES - Antiques, Appraisals & Estate Services) rose and donated $1,000 for incredible sales in her business.

President Dan then invited Todd Koolakian, Director of Philanthropy at the Sacramento Children’s Home and guest of Roy Alexander (Sacramento Children’s Home), to the podium.  Todd announced that on this day 150 years ago, February 14, 1867, the Sacramento Children’s Home was incorporated.  In celebration, he brought with him two birthday cakes from Ettore’s, a gesture that was eagerly appreciated by all assembled.  Of the various programs the Home offers, Todd spoke about one in particular its Crisis Nursery Program whose mission is “to prevent child abuse and neglect by providing support to families at times of crisis.”  To demonstrate the power of the Crisis Nursery Program, Todd invited Rayne McKenzie, an alumnus of the program to tell her story.

Thank you very much for being our "Meeting Sponsor"!
