RI President Barry Rassin’s theme for 2018-19, Be the Inspiration, asks Rotarians to inspire change in the world and in each other. “I ask all of you to Be the Inspiration to help Rotary move from reaction to action — to take a hard look at the environmental issues that affect health and welfare around the world and do what we can to help.”

 

At the Rotary Club of Folsom meeting on February 7, 13 teachers from Folsom schools received grants ranging from $150 to $500.  Bob Mange introduced each teacher who was at the meeting and presented the checks.  Sonny Da Marto, Club Service Director for Rotary Club of Folsom Lake, handed the checks to each teacher. The teachers then told us their grade level and a little about what they were doing with the grant.

On Saturday, January 12, several Rotarians under the direction of Justin Raithel, installed the decking on the long boardwalk on the bike trail that parallels Glenn between Sibley and Folsom Blvd.  The project started at 8 AM and was done about 1 PM.  As usual, refreshments were available.  The club demolished this deck on December 16.
