The 2019-20 presidential theme for RI President Mark Daniel Maloney, a member of the Rotary Club of Decatur, Alabama, USA, is Rotary Connects the World.  “The first emphasis is to grow Rotary — to grow our service, to grow the impact of our projects, but most importantly, to grow our membership so that we can achieve more,” Maloney said.

Maloney believes that connection is at the heart of the Rotary experience.

“(Rotary) allows us to connect with each other, in deep and meaningful ways, across our differences,” Maloney said. “It connects us to people we would never otherwise have met, who are more like us than we ever could have known. It connects us to our communities, to professional opportunities, and to the people who need our help.”

 
Folsom Community Service Day was Saturday, September 21.  The Rotary Club of Folsom led two projects.  One crew of Rotarians built two pergolas at the Murer House adjacent to the bocce ball court.

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.

On Saturday, November 10, 12 Folsom Rotarians removed a boardwalk on the Folsom Bike Trail.  Justin Raithel drove an excavator provided by Bob Blackwell and he was able to pick up sections of the boardwalk and put them in a dumpster.
