Meeting Notes from August 26, 2021
President Steve Brozosky opened the meeting at 7 pm by leading the club in the Pledge of Allegiance.  The club decided to sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame", however, not very well.  Bob Mange gave the invocation.
Secretary Jim Padgett introduced visiting Rotarians and guests.
President Steve reminded the members that the re-roof project at Lew Howard Park has been postponed to October 30.  Also, as announced, the First Responder Appreciation Meeting has been postponed to a later date as well.
Community Service Day is September 18.  Justin Raithel said we are building a handicap accessible work out facility outside of the aquatic center.  The equipment is designed for both able-bodied and wheelchair-bound users.  We have received $5k from the Folsom Community Service Day funds, $5k from the Rotary District Grant and $20k from the club to fund the project.  To see a presentation of the project, go to 2021 Community Service Project
District 5180 Rotary Foundation Dinner is on October 30 at the Doubletree Hotel in Sacramento.  Frank Woods talked about the value in attending this annual dinner.  It is great way to learn about Rotary beyond the club level and to hear about the great work that our Rotary Foundation does in the world and our community.  As of the meeting we have 9 people going to the dinner.  If you are interested it going, see President Steve or Rotary Foundation Club Chair Sue Barrett.
President Steve also talked about the District Polio Plus Society.  If you pledge to donate $100 per year to End Polio Now at the Rotary Foundation, you can become a member of the Polio Plus Society.  Applications were available at the meeting and President Steve sent an email to the members about the Society on August 25.
President Steve gave an update on the Brian Shul event at the Harris Center on November 27.  He said that 10% of tickets sales revenue will go to Wounded Warriors.  He asked members to get sponsorships for the event.  He also thanked Chuck and Conni Thompson for making this event happen.
