Lori and I are proud of the work Rotary does in our community and all over the world.
We have seen first-hand that money donated to Rotary stops being “money” and becomes “helping people”.
Knowing our gift will continue after we are both gone is heart-warming.
- Peter Dannenfelser 
 

President Dan McVeigh opened the meeting by welcoming everyone and thanking Elfrena Foord (Foord, Van Bruggen Pajak) for getting us started with her piano set, Kevin Williams (KVIE) for his additional musical selections, and greeters Kathe Nathan (The Merchant’s National Bank), Chris Ann Bachtel (First Northern Bank), and Jeff Curcio (Murphy Austin Adams Schoenfeld LLP).  Special thanks also went out to Elfrena Foord and Bruce Hester (Collier’s International) for sponsoring the wine reception.

The Thought for the Day was given by Bob Rosenberg (Inve$net Inc.) who advocated for the importance of “lifelong learning.”  He read Ten Tips “that can help you stay connected, motivated and identify new ways to grow and develop:

1.     Know your interests

2.     Acknowledge your learning style

3.     Set goals

4.     Develop good reading habits

5.     Seek resources

6.     Join a group of like-minded learners

7.     Get Involved

8.     Share your skills and knowledge

9.     Take an online course or attend a course at your local college/university

10.   Stay curious

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:  Chair of the Day President Elect Elect Diane Woodruff, speaker Jacob Jackson, Invocator Bob Rosenberg, New Member Julie Sherry (Watson Companies, Inc.), and New Member Steve Hymas (Downey Brand LLP).

 President Dan then had the honor of inducting our new members.  Julie Sherry was  sponsored by Becki Roberts (Central Valley Community Bank) and Jeff Vonkaenel  (Sacramento News & Review), and Steve Hymas by Pres. Dan McVeigh and Jim Paul  (Paul Benefits Law Corp).

 

 

Jim Leet (Boutin Jones Inc.) and Anne Ferguson (ChamberChic Interior Redesign &  Decorating Services) representing the Rotary Club of Sacramento Foundation had the honor of presenting its scholarship to Emma Ceja.  Emma graduated from Vista Del Lago High School, in Folsom, and will be attending Folsom Lake College in the fall.  Congratulations Emma!


President Dan then recognized recent Polio Plus contributors during his term as president.  Two donations that were particularly notable were from Nancy Teichert (Writer) who made a $1,000 contribution, and Jim Streng (Streng Bros Rentals, LLC) who made a $900 contribution.  In all, $10,365 was donated by the Club to Polio Plus during the 2016-2017 term.

The announcements were as follows:


 -John Wood (McGee & Thielen Insurance Brokers) announced that as of July 11, 2017 the Rotary Club of Sacramento will begin a four-week trial period of our weekly meetings at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, located at 600 Alhambra Blvd; Parking is on 30th Street, Sacramento, CA 95816.
