Lincoln City Services
  Community Blood Drive 
Our Thursday Lunch meeting was very informative. Jennifer Hanson, Lincoln Director of Public Services (including the airport) told us all about all the services that the city provides - and had a hi-lo-exact game for us so that we were involved in understanding the quantities. She covered everything from the number of calls regarding city services to the number of goats (and sheep) that were brought in to clear our open spaces.   Wow, the city provides so much. Lots of fun and Jennifer was a great speaker.  Pete Walker won the prize offered by Jennifer for getting the most correct answers.  
Dan Johnson made a special announcement regarding the club dues/meeting costs and the committees planned for the upcoming year. Members should look for a special email from Dan on these subjects.  Most importantly, he is requesting that all members become involved in one of our club committees. Contact the committee chairs about your interests. 
Harvey announced that Fr Bill's Kickout (and Dan's promotion) will be Thursday June 29th at Turkey Creek Golf Club starting at 6:00pm.  Dinner starts at 6:30 and is $30 per attendee; make sure and sign up at a meeting or contact Harvey.  
Our Lincoln Community Blood Drive was held today and was the most successful in club history - 60 units of blood donated, made up of 45 whole blood, 13 platelets and 2 double-red cells donations. There were 54 pre-registered and 18 walk-ins, but unfortunately many could not donate.  The Placer Nevada Cattlewomen were there serving their usual delicious to-die-for goodies so that donors could recuperate quickly. Thank you to all that donated or helped in the Blood Drive.  (In the picture below, Gayle Graves from Blood Source is shown with Dan and Wildbill.)
Our speaker next week will be Otis Wollan, a past Placer County Water District director, talking about the Centennial Dam project.   We will also have our annual Lincoln Rotary Club Foundation meeting to elect new directors, so plan on attending as we need a quorum.
