Garry Parlier introduced Eric Yoder, Folsom High School Interact Club Advisor.  Eric asked each of the Interact Officers for this year to introduce themselves and tell us about some of the projects that they have planned for this year.  They recently worked with the Rotary Club of Folsom Lake on an international project, Rise Against Hunger and will walk with us in the Veterans Day Parade on November 11.  They are now working on a project with Powerhouse Ministries called Senior Christmas Care Basket Program.  There will be a collection box at our meetings in November where members can donate items for the baskets.  Suggested items include toiletries, office supplies, kitchen supplies, and small gift items like non-slip socks, lap blankets, or scarfs, etc.

Busy November
November 2019 has been a busy month for the Rotary Club of Folsom.  On November 2, members painted Santa's sleigh for the Folsom Police Officers Association.  Every year, Santa and Mrs. Claus travel through the neighborhoods of Folsom bringing Christmas Cheer to children and collecting donations of new toys and non-perishable food for the Police Department’s Annual Christmas Food Drive program benefiting  local families in need. 
On November 9, members worked at the Powerhouse Ministries Transformation Center painting the kitchen and installing cabinets.
On November 11, our club and the Folsom High School Interact Club marched in the Folsom Veterans Day Parade.

Later this month, the club is hosting Cornhole for a Cause! on Saturday, November 16.  For information and tickets, go to
