We were very pleased to present Rose with her Blue Badge.  Congratulations Rose.

Our speaker was DG Fred, introduced by AG Brent (from South Yuba Sunrise Rotary and who is our Area AG). We greated Fred with the Happy Clap. Fred related some of his history in Rotary. Fred was instrumental in establishing the Boys and Girls Club of Sacramento, receiving a lot of support from his Sacramento Rotary Club. His District Theme is BUILD Rotary, where the B-U-I-L-D stands for:

  • B - Sense of BelongingImage
  • U - Usefulness - what we do must be useful
  • I - Influence - Rotarians are leaders
  • L - Laughter
  • D - Do it now. 

As part of his presentation, he presented Dan with his Paul Harris Plus 1 pin, also bringing Sharon up front, stressing that giving to the RI Foundation is a family matter. 

ImageWe presented Fred with a few gifts: 1) A picture of our Build Rotary theme rendition, 2) A mallet, since if you are going to build something you need a hammer, 3) A children's book related to construction to be donated to the Lincoln Library, 4)A red Lincoln Rotary shirt since he was so impressed with the "red" presence at our meeting, and 5) A $100 check to the Gridley Ebola Project in his name. 

And most of all, it was a very fun meeting.
