A Message from Our President
 Our Rotary club has a new leader!  Pictured is our jolly President Tom Peno, who promises to outline his plans for the new year any moment now, and RIGHT HERE!
 
In the meantime, gaze into his eyes, enjoy the jolly expression, and try to second-guess his message to you....
 
If you wish to gain the full measure of Tom's Presidential self, and of our enthusiastic Rotarians, come to our meetings, Friday mornings (7 am) at La Placita Restaurant, 9272 Greenback Lane, in beautiful downtown Orangevale.

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!
 
 
What a delightful, heart-warming Canine Companion For Independence vocational tour was enjoyed by 6 Rotarians last Friday morning after the meeting!  Thanks to Vocational Chair Patty Wolff and the warm welcome from Joan and Jim Buntin, we were able to step inside the puppies’ garage play enclosure and hold the 8 adorable puppies in our arms! The 6 yellow/2 black five-week old Labrador puppies greeted us with licks and nibbles on our toes! When Patty sat down on the floor she soon had 4 puppies in her lap! What fun for all of us!
 
After this wonderful “glimpse” into the training of Canine Companion puppies, I asked Jim and Joan to explain more about this amazing program to which Joan has dedicated so much loving care and training throughout the past 21 years. Here’s what Jim replied.
 
 
Twenty-seven years ago, in the Fall of 1989, our club joined the Citrus Heights Rotary club in sponsoring an RYE student from Hinnerup, Denmark. Anna Brams lived in the homes of two Citrus Heights Rotarians and one Orangevale Rotarian over the course of the school year. Anna attended Bella Vista High School, and became fast friends with our family and our daughter Jodi.
