We had a presentation on an organization called Journeys Within Our Community (JWOC).  The mission of this organization is to empower low-income Cambodians to lead their communities by providing educational and personal development opportunities, inspiring a mindset of co-responsibility and social services.  JWOC has worked hand in hand with the Rotary Club of Sacramento.  Between 2011 and 2012, RC Sacramento support was instrumental in allowing thousands throughout Siem Reap to access Clean Water and improve their hygiene standards. More recently their support has provided the Free Classes program with technology and teaching materials to enhance learning interaction.

Community Service Day 2018
On September 15, 2018, more than 3,300 city volunteers worked on over 70 projects for Folsom Community Service Day.  Rotary Club of Folsom members worked hard Saturday morning on several projects serving our seniors. 
The club’s Community Service Day project was at a senior mobile home park laying pavers to make a patio and doing landscaping and maintenance work.  The large turnout allowed us to spread throughout the neighborhood helping other seniors.

Rotary Cycling Team - Breathe California Bike Trek
On September 7, 8, and 9 the Folsom Rotary Cycling Team rode 90 miles in support of Breathe California.  The rides were out of the KOA campground in Petaluma.  Rotarians on the team include Garry Parlier, John Messner, Ken Stuart, and Frank Woods.  Non-Rotarians were Sue Lindow and Bob Roehrs.  John Lindow was not able to ride this year due to recent heart surgery.  Bob Roehrs did not ride with us in Petaluma but did ride about 75 miles over three days in August on the American River Bike Trail.  Bob is 90 and did not feel comfortable riding on the roads in Petaluma.
