What Have We Been Up To?
Community Service Project, On May 6th
Our Rotary Club was contacted by the Antelope Lions Club asking for assistance with their food donation program “Antelope Feeding Antelope and Beyond”. The Foothill-Highlands Rotary Club supported this event with $300.00 for food combined with other donations from Lions, Prices, Sysco, The Point Church and others. On May 6th, Patrick Magnani, Marilee Monagan, Dominic Mecklenburg & Roland Wright were on-site to represent Rotary and set up and distribute food on the outdoor patio area at the Taste of Tuscany. The owners Jeremy & Natalie Price, are Sacramento Antelope Lions Club members and are using their restaurant as the staging area for this food donation project. A DJ with 103.9FM The Fish was on-site with music in support of the event. Of course we implemented social distancing, masks and gloves to keep everyone safe. Fresh food consisted of: potatoes, onions, bell peppers, cucumbers, lettuce, carrots, celery, beans, rice, bread, eggs, chicken, sausage, pasta, marinara sauce and more!  We served over 100 families and still had some left over for seniors at a nearby elder home.

We had a fabulous District Governor visit today! DG Ray Ward and his travel insurance Stacy Graham, ADG Dave and  Michaeline Veden. They really enjoyed the day with Foothill-Highlands Rotary Club on the yacht “At Last” out of Miller Park, Sacramento. There were 18 aboard the ship as the cruise left the marina and voyaged upriver to the I-80 bridge and down river to south Sacramento and back. Glorious day on the water! Thanks to Captain Dick and Admiral Sam for the voyage!
On December 20th, just in time for Christmas,  Foothill-Highlands Rotarians distributed dictionaries at Hillsdale Elementary School in North Highlands to Mrs Stilton 3rd Grade Class. It was heartwarming to witness the excitement of the kids when they learned each of them would get their very own dictionary to take home. Each student enthusiastically took a pledge to learn one new word every day.
PP Dominic Mecklenburg introduced our speakers Olivia and Emily from Rio Linda High School who our club sponsored at this years RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awakening) Camp, they will be seniors this fall.Olivia and Emily shared some of there personal experiences and activities that they took part in.

Each year the clubs in Rotary District 5180 host a speech contest centered around Rotary International's Theme for that year.
On Monday, the Rotary Club of Foothill-Highlands hosted three students representing Antelope High School and Rio Linda High School in the annual club-level speech contest. This year’s theme was “Making a Difference."  It was interesting to hear how each student perceived the theme and took different approaches to develop their respective speeches.
The students were accompanied by their teachers and some family members who cheered them on and shared in their successes.
Special kudos to our winner and best of luck at the next level.
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.
