Although Rotary Foundation Chairs John Messner and Ken Stuart will take checks to the Rotary Foundation, they would prefer that you go to and set up access.  By doing so you can give a single donation or setup a recurring donation.
Don't forget, the September 1st meeting is the First Responders Luncheon at the Folsom Community Center.  
Jim Ortega introduced our speaker, Fire Chief Ken Cusano.  Fire Chief Cusano gave us an update on what's happening in the Folsom Fire Department.

First Elio and May Marsalla Scholarship Awarded
Rotary District 5180 awarded the first Global Grant Scholarship this year to Darsha Naidu using the Marsalla endowment to fund her scholarship.  The endowment said to prioritize an engineering career with medical field listed as a second choice.  Darsha was accepted to the University College London and will be leaving for her year in England in early September.  She just graduated from Sac State University with her Bachelor's Degree.  She will be in the Master's program studying communicable diseases and vaccine development.  The value of the scholarship is $86,000.
Darsha grew up in Elk Grove and attended school in Elk Grove from Kindergarten through High School.  Her scholarship application was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Elk Grove.  Darsha was the speaker today at RC Elk Grove and the Elk Grove meeting was attended by President Ryan, John Messner, and Frank Woods.  Her presentation was about her and her family and was very interesting.  She is an outstanding young lady and will be an excellent representative of Rotary and our District.
