Rotary members honored as Champions of Girls’ Empowerment

Six Rotary members were honored in March as People of Action: Champions of Girls’ Empowerment during Rotary Day with UNICEF in New York City. This distinction recognizes the honorees’ commitment to improving girls’ access to education, health, and sanitation and hygiene resources, as well as their work to create environments where girls can flourish.

A Message from Our President

Welcome!  Thank you for visiting our website.  The Rotary Club of Orangevale has proudly served the local community and beyond for over 60 years.  Among our many contributions are facilitating improvements at local schools and in their classrooms, providing scholarships and distributing hardbound dictionaries to all Orangevale 3rd graders.  We have also worked on major facility improvements at the Orangevale-Fair Oaks Food Bank, where we serve once a month distributing food to those in need.  At Christmas, we have a tradition of providing gifts and groceries to struggling families.  Recently, we made a donation to the local library for adding to their collection of high demand publications.
The Rotary Club of Orangevale is part of Rotary International, a global network of over 35,000 clubs with 1.2 million members.  Through this affiliation our club has contributed to a number of international projects for clean water, business investment, eradicating polio, disaster relief and more.  The Rotary International president, Shekhar Mehta has introduced the theme that Rotarians "Serve to Change Lives", encouraging us to do even more in our communities and worldwide.  
The men and women in our club come from various business and professional backgrounds.  They share the high ethical standards of Rotarians the world over, valuing fairness, honesty, integrity and generosity, while embracing our motto: "Service above Self."  We are a friendly group of folks who have a good time at our meetings and social activities, as well as enjoying time spent serving together on projects.
Perhaps you have considered joining a group of fellow civic-minded folks.  The Orangevale Rotary Club might be the right fit for you.  We meet almost every Friday morning from 7 - 8:15 am at La Placita Restaurant, 9272 Greenback Lane in Orangevale.  Our meetings include updates on what we have recently done and are planning for the future.   The agenda typically includes an interesting guest speaker.   I invite you to join us as our guest for breakfast, meet our members and learn more about Rotary and our club.
Yours in Rotary,
Dennis Sarkisian
Upcoming Events
Recent Happenings
Inspired by a presentation to the Orangevale Rotary Club 2 years ago by Chris Nelson on the Flying Samaritans’ medical clinic in San Quintin, I invited Chris to talk to our high school Interact Club about how the students could contribute to this amazing program.  As a result the Interact Club has enthusiastically sponsored several school and Rotary backpack donation drives in the past 2 years.  Chris arrived to pick up bags and bags of precious donations to fill the simple cloth backpacks given to children and mothers at the clinic each month. The newsletter photos confirmed the excitement and joy our donations have brought to the farm worker families. Last year the Interact Club also donated $250 to the Flying Sams!
