Club Assembly
Our regular Thursday meeting had some guests: Matt who is our RYE student from Argentina who already has his favorite classes at Lincoln HS, Carrie Pronesti, President of Sunset Loomis Rotary Club and Gary McDonald, Executive Director of the Lighthouse and member of the Lincoln's EDC. Fran Neves (Frank without the K) who is president of the Woman's Club was at the meeting to sell wine tickets to benefit the Woman's Club ADA project.  Plus, we got to see Truman Rich and Joe Stewart who have been missing for a while. Welcome back. 

Vic won the small raffle despite cries of rigging. President Dan congratulated all who helped organize the Blood Drive and those who gave.  We had a near record 55 turnout and 42 units of blood provided.
Allen Lowe fulfilled President Dan's wish in writing and reading his Poem on Rotary Membership as this is Rotary Membership Month. He was absolved from paying a fee and all enjoyed his efforts. Thank you Alan. Click here to see poem.
We were reminded to get your RSVP's in before noon tomorrow for the Social on August 31st.  YES, we will be DARK next Thursday noon.
Carrie from Loomis Sunset announced their new fundraiser and invited us all to join them for a fun night of BUNKO.  Tickets ($25) include dinner and a drink coupon. Thursday September 21st at 6pm.  Loomis Library, 6050 Library Drive, Loomis. 
President Dan then presented the Lincoln Rotary Club Budget for the year and took questions.  The three Board members in charge of Committees were introduced so they could announce their committees and explain which ones are still open for members to join.  Everyone is asked to join ONE Committee.  The maximum number you can join is TWO per Dan's extensive statistical analysis.
