What We Do
Posted by Arthur Deardorff on Nov 11, 2014

Evening Satellite Meeting Kickoff - Update



We held a third get-together on Tuesday November 11th, 5:30-6:30pm again at Buonarrati's. Our Club Board of Directors is continuing plans to start regular evening meetings in 2015. Contact Clark Osterhout ( if you are interested in joining Rotary and attending these meetings.

Rotary Club of Lincoln had its initial kickoff event to initiate having alternate evening club meetings on September 16th. Our objective is to offer the opportunity for service to our community members who can not attend the normal Thursday noon meetings.  

The reception to this idea was awesome. We had 18 potential Rotarians show up to find out what Rotary was all about in Lincoln. Clark Osterhout provided an outstanding presentation on Rotary outlining what we do locally and world-wide. Dan Johnson described additional service ideas. All attendees introduced themselves and expressed their interest in service. Club President Art Deardorff stressed that the ultimate meeting time, location and operations of the evening meeting would be determined by the group.

The plan presented was that we would get together with interested attendees, their friends and others three more times this year, with the next meeting on October 14 at a location to be determined. Tell your friends to put this date on their calendars.

More to follow on this new idea from the Rotary Club of Lincoln Membership Committee.  Stay tuned.

Live Happy

At our November 6 meeting, we kicked it off with Happy Pictures and Thought of the Day. The club members went Crazy Bananas with their happy face pictures!  Thanks to Kris Wyatt for suggesting this theme from the Live Happy Movement (Click this Link for

"To make the world a happier place... it starts with you and your happiness, ripples to the lives of others, and becomes a wave of positive change around the world."

Creekside Oaks Garden Cleanup Service Project


With the help of LHS Key/Interact members, and Victoria McCoy and her daughter Julissa, we worked for about two hours weeding and cleaning up the garden at Creekside Oaks Elementary Garden.  

We pulled weeds.  We hoed.  We spaded. We raked. We trimmed.  We piled the weeds and then stuffed them into bags for the school groundskeepers to remove.  We talked.  We laughed. We sweated!  We drank water.  We had some snacks.  Most of all we worked hard and had fun.  Performing service for others is good for the heart.


Thank you to Kris Wyatt for organizing this project. Thanks to all who participated.

Lincoln Community Blood Drive - A Huge Success

The August 29th Rotary-sponsored blood drive was very successful.  Blood Source was considering having to cancel the drive after the last two drives were not well supported. But, Lincoln Rotary and our members turned up the gain on attracting donors:

  • Thanks to Lincoln New Messenger for a front page articleImage
  • Downtown Lincoln Associates supported by jointly supporting us at Food Trucks
  • Flyers handed out at Starbucks and Walmart
  • Increased support by our members
  • Social media presence on our Website and facebook

 Bottom line is 48 pints donated with 58 potential donors showing up.  Blood Source who conducts the drives was ecstatic!  The refreshments supplied by the Placer-Nevada Cattlewomen were great as usual.






Save December 12th (3pm) on your calendar for the next Lincoln Community Blood Drive.  Give Blood - Save a Life.


November is Foundation Month



The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary, we tap into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact. Strong financial oversight, a stellar charity rating, and a unique funding model mean that we make the very most of your contribution. Give and become a part of Rotary’s life-changing work!
