Last week we heard from Sheriff Wayne Woo!

Thank you to Carol Abbanat for the recap! 
Our meeting started with a surprise guest, Krystin Canon from the Chamber of Commerce. Kristin announced that our club has been nominated for the “Service Organization of the Year” for the Business Excellence Awards for 2023. The Awards Dinner is Feb.10th.
The second surprise guest was the District 5180 Foundation Chair Joe Scheimer. He came with a Congratulations Certificate to the club for the PolioPlus donations from club members. Committee reports included Taste of Italy with the need for each members to sell/buy tickets and to donate either baskets or donate $100 for someone else to make up the basket. Reminder that the event is only two weeks away, on Feb 4th.
The guest speaker was Newly elected Sheriff Wayne Woo. He gave an exceptionally well organized, informative overview of the responsibilities of the Sheriff. Sheriff Woo expressed that his focus is on children and as an elected position his obligations to the safety and well being of the citizens that elected him. It was interesting to learn that the Sheriff is also the Coroner and the Marshall for the County. He showed a slide demonstrating the size of Placer County. Discussed the budget, facilities
currently available and the need for new facilities with the expansion of the population in Lincoln. He briefly discussed the crimes rates and the issue of Fentanyl which is a problem for this area and is a concern. Some local children have died.

Darral and many other members congratulated the Sheriff on his presentation saying that he provided one of the best presentations that a speaker has given to the club.
