What Have We Been Up To?
New Member
DG Sandi Sava likes to induct new members when she visits Rotary clubs.  As a special treat during our holiday party, DG Sandi inducted Mary Mecklenburg into our club.  She shared some interesting tidbits about Mary's background before presenting Mary with a Women in Rotary pin and asked the Rotarians to come forward to officially welcome Mary into the Foothill-Highlands Rotary family.  
We are so excited to have Mary as our newest member. 
Mystery Bus Trip
The Rotarians and guests gathered at the Lions Gate Hotel parking lot at 10:00am and boarded the bus.
Dominic Mecklenburg entertains the guests.
After passing though Marysville we guessed where we were headed, Oroville. When we arrived in Oroville we picked up our guide Jana Frazier from the State Department of Water Resources  She pointed out some of the history of Oroville on the way to the Oroville Dam Overlook.
Our next stop was the Oroville Fish Hatchery
After leaving Oroville we returned to the Sacramento area and headed to the Newcastle area and the Hillenbrand Farmhaus Brewery where we had a catered dinner.

Back-to-School Backpack Project

Foothill-Highlands Rotarians began collecting donations of new backpacks in mid-August and collected them until last Wednesday. Our Immediate Past President took the backpacks to the Pacific Charter Institute which supports the Heritage Peak Charter School and the new backpacks were distributed to students in need. We collected 35 backpacks which surpassed our goal of 20.


Making a difference in our community one backpack at a time.

Having a Great Time While Raising Funds for the Homeless.
The World’s Longest Teeter-Totter made its annual appearance at the 23rd California Brewers Festival on Saturday, September 16th and was available to Festival Goers for the ride of their lives.   Foothill-Highlands Rotarians with the help of Point West Rotarians joined with Sac State Rotaractors at Discovery Park to raise money for the Rotaractors Project to assemble much needed hygiene kits for distribution to the homeless in Sacramento.

District Dictionary Project
As part of an Annual District-Wide Project, The Rotary Club of Foothill-Highlands adopted three schools in its service area and purchased dictionaries for their third-grade students. On Friday, January 13th, 53 "lucky" students at Creative Connections Arts Academy received their allocation. Pictured are President Dominic Mecklenburg, PP Bob Meyer and several students. President Dominic asked the students to make a promise to "learn one new word every day." From the smiles on their faces, they are enjoying their new dictionaries. Two additional schools will be visited within the next few weeks.
Foothill-Highlands Rotarians gathered on December 12th at Freedom Park in North Highlands to dedicate a bench to the North Highlands Parks and Recreation District.
Perfect Attendance Program
Under the direction of Youth Services Director Patrick Magnani, the Rotary Club of Foothill-Highlands once again sponsored the Perfect Attendance Program for the Community Outreach Academy in McClellan, CA.  There were 115 students who qualified.  Almost all of them attended the event on 5/31/16, accompanied by four chaperones, three bus drivers and their sixth-grade teacher, Mr. Tim Strauch, II, in charge.  Their reward was a few hours of food, fun and arcade games at John’s Incredible Pizza in Roseville in celebration of their fine accomplishment.  Each of these students did not miss one day of school all year long.  WOW!!!  They were extremely grateful to Rotary for our continued sponsorship. 
Thanks to PE Dominic Mecklenburg and Jeff Donlevy for representing the club at the festivities.
