The Rotary District 6440 Governor Kevin Stevens stopped by the clubs lunch to discuss every thing Rotary.  Governor Kevin was excited to inform the club about many things including this years theme, "Serve to Change Lives".  This is a simple but powerful message that really fits what Rotary is all about.  The volunteers that make up Rotary not only change others lives by serving but also change their own lives.  He also wanted to stress that this is an International organization made up local clubs made up of volunteers.  The Governor was very impressed with our club for a number of reasons especially the commitment we show to the Rotary Foundation year after year.  Elk Grove Rotary Club is one of the few clubs that is 100% Paul Harris Fellows.
