Blue Star Moms
Another great lunch.  We were please to have a few members that we haven't seen much of namely Ana Roa and Paul Parks - great to have you back.  Truman announced that it was his 49th anniversary; way to go big guy. 
Lots going on - see the list of events.   
The Rotarian of the Month Award was handed over from Wildbill Cook to Kris Wyatt.  For this honor, she will get to display our Chamber of Commerce Best Service Club Award in a conspicuous place (in her home) for the next month.  We are all thankful to have Kris as a member since she does so much for the youth in our community as well as other community services. 
Our speaker was Jennifer Harris who spoke about Blue Star Moms.  She became involved when her son was deployed to Afganistan,  She found that other mothers felt the same fears about family members serving our country.   The Sacramento Blue Star Moms is a non-political, non-sectarian, non-racial, non-profit Military/Veteran support organization.  Members are proud mothers, stepmothers, foster mothers and female legal guardians living in South Placer county and Sacramento county who have children serving in the military, guard or reserves, or children who are veterans.  They support Veterans, Service Members from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces  (regardless of their hometown), and honor our Gold Star Families who have lost a relative and remember their children.  They share their pride in our Armed Forces and our country by participating in patriotic events, community awareness, supporting our Veterans and deployed Service Members and their families left behind.  Thank you Jennifer for all you and other Blue Star Moms do.
