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.

Evening Satellite Meeting Kickoff
Rotary Club of Lincoln had its kickoff event to initiate having alternate evening club meetings. 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.

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 article
- 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.

School Supplies for Kids
Another example of the service we provide to our youth. We collected 18 backpacks and other school supplies, then delivered them for needy children at Sheridan Elementary School. Thanks to Karen Johnson, Claire Luke and Kimberly Fricke for making this happen.
And you have to appreciate the dedication of Vic Freeman, helping deliver the supplies with a bum knee after falling off his bike - see picture! You wouldn't think that would happen to the guy who writes the bicycle column for the Lincoln News Messenger!
