Our Work in the Community
This was a team effort between Point West Rotary and Canon Restaurant which was coordinated by Carol VanBruggen (PWR member).  These meals went across UC Davis Health system to physicians, residents, nurses, and specialty testing team who are working round the clock during this COVID-19 pandemic. 
Point West Rotarians took the plunge Saturday to support Special Olympics!  With unusually warm-ish weather Glen Cheron (in the fluffy Polar Bear costume) and President-elect Russ Fujii jumped in the frigid water to support this great organization.  PWR also provided $1,500 in funding to support the event.  Special Olympics, in appreciation for all that Point West Rotary has done over the years to support them, presented a special soccer ball signed by many Special Olympians to current club President, Kathy Copeland.  A great event supporting a wonderful group!
On Valentine's Day morning, Point West Rotary had the opportunity of reading to each class at Greer Elementary School in the first annual I Love Reading event.  It was so much fun to share our love of reading, interacting with the students and checking out their newly remodeled campus! 
With great fanfare and a lot of fun, our new President Kathy Copeland kicked off the 35th term of the best damn Rotary Club on the planet!  In our temporary meeting location at Haggin Oaks Golf Course, Kathy and her board danced their way into the room...and our hearts...to ABBA's "Dancing Queen".  Kathy shared her goals for the term which were based on feedback she received from club members through our Fireside Chat meetings.  She also revealed her theme for the year "Together People Create Change" and that certainly describes our club!  It's gonna be a great year!

Point West Rotarians were once again working in our community – this time at Greer Elementary!  PWR provided a grant of $5,000 to River City Food Bank’s BackSnack program to benefit Greer Elementary School.  Past President Rick Bixler and Roger Gaskin delivered the first round of snacks to the school.  Future deliveries will be on a monthly basis.  Amy Gregory, Principal of Greer Elementary praised Point West Rotary saying “Thank you all SO much for all your help in bringing the BackSnacks program to our students.  These snacks will help support our students so they can start their day with full tummies, ready-to-learn minds, and grateful hearts!"
Not only do Point West Rotarians devote their time by helping out in many ways in our community, but we are extremely generous as well.  At our meeting on December 7th, club president Carl Naake, Point West Rotary Club Foundation President Tom Harvey and Paul Adams presented District Governor Jack Arney with a check for $60,000 to support those affected by the Camp Fire in Paradise.   The funds will go to the Oroville and Gridley Rotary Clubs to help out.  Members of both of those clubs have been working the front lines running evacuation centers and helping families and individuals get back on their feet.  Our hearts and thoughts go to all of those impacted by the fires.         
Point West Rotary's Satellite Club is hosting the 2nd annual Professionals Networking Mixer on Wednesday, Nov. 7th, 6:30 - 8:30 pm at the CoWo Campus in midtown (1507 21st St).  Take this opportunity to meet fellow professionals, learn more about Rotary, and enjoy appetizers and refreshments.  Admission is only $10 which will benefit My Sister's House, a local organization helping women and children impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking.  For tickets...click here

Point West Rotarians were out "doing good in the world" again! On Saturday, April 14th, we planted trees at the Sunriver Park in Rancho Cordova and the neighboring area.
