Rotary District 5180 Conference
The district conference this year was virtual on May 22 and May 23 from 10 am until 12 pm.  For being a virtual conference, I thought it went very well.  Clubs were asked to submit Promo Videos and 9 clubs participated.  The videos were shown on Saturday morning in groups of 3 between other presentations.  The Rotary Club of East Sacramento was awarded first place.
Speakers on Saturday included the Speech Contest Winner, Rotary International Vice President Johrita Solari, and Past Rotary International Vice President Dean Rohrs.  Jim Tracy conducted the Remembrance Ceremony for Rotarians who passed away this Rotary year.  
Sunday morning was devoted mostly to awards.  The Rotary Club of Point West won the Pinewood Derby race with RC Gridley second and RC Sacramento third.
The following Rotarians were inducted into the Rotary District 5180 Hall of Fame:
  • Nick Doiron - RC North Sacramento
  • Drew Houghton - RC Point West
  • John Weiler - RC Marysville
  • Tom Cicchini - RC Point West
  • Jo Ann Lemmon - RC North Sacramento
The Rotarian of the Year is Leigh-Ann Reinero of the Rotary Club of Passport One.
The Rotary Club of Folsom received the following awards.
President Monika was at Yuba College to accept the medals for our club.
The Club of the Year was the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks.
The Featured Speaker Sunday morning was Retired Major Brian Shul (USAF).  He has spoken to our club about his career in the air force, including piloting the SR-71 Blackbird.
