We've had a great start for this 2015-2016 Rotary year starting with our first meeting of the year in Elk Grove Regional Park and a great visit from our new District Governor Glenn Fong. A special thanks to Past President Bob Hoyme for filling in for me on July 8th while I was in Cincinnati. Our July 15th meeting was a great tap dance when our planned speaker was a no show. Our very own Mark Madison volunteered to be our speaker and did an excellent jog giving us an update on local and state water issues and fielding specific questions. Wednesday, July 22nd, our guest speaker was Supervisor Don Nattoli. His update on County issues was very informative as always. The Kohl's kids event was Saturday morning July 25th and we had a great Rotary turnout.

The Strauss Festival was Thursday July 23 through Sunday July 26 and went off without a hitch thanks to Roy Joerger and all the Rotary volunteers.

Please join us for lunch on Wednesdays, noon, at Vince's.

August 12 will be a catered lunch at Rotary Grove in Elk Grove Park, instead of Vince's, where we will recognize some new additions to the Elk Grove Rotary Wall of Honor!

Yours in Rotary,

Jim Babcock

President 2015-2016
