Frank Woods announced that the Breathe California Bike Trek has been postponed again to Saturday, October 19 due to poor air quality.  He said the delay provides more time to get in donations to sponsor the Rotary Team.

President Monika recognized Kate Gonzales for going the extra Rotary mile last week by attending three Rotary meetings in one day.

Granite School Landscaping Project
The Granite School Landscaping Project was completed on Saturday, October 3 with several Rotarians there to do the work.  At least I think the project may be complete except perhaps for a few details to clean up.  I added photos from October 3 to the Folsom Community Service day Project Photo Album. 
To view additional photos, check them out here.
The Rotary Club of Folsom received a District 5180 Grant for this project.  The Rotary Foundation will pay half the cost of materials up to $5,000 for this project.  This is a great example of your donations to the Foundation at work.
