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!

SUPER FOOD DRIVE AND DISTRIBUTION
Working with Placer Food Bank, our club helped in the collection and distribution of food and clothing to less fortunate people of Lincoln. At our meeting on July 17, members brought in non-perishable food to fill one barrel (194 pounds) - thank you members.
On July 19, we helped to set up and conduct the food and clothing distribution at Lincoln Spanish Seventh-Day Adventist Church on 5th Street. Thanks to Bayside Church, a truckload of children's clothing was provided for distribution. Placer Food Bank had a truckload of perishable and non-perishable food, some of which had been collected at Lincoln businesses.
The drive served 130 families and 482 individuals. There were 35 volunteers; 10 were Rotarians.Over 6,000 pounds of food was distributed. Clothing was provided to 67 families.
Special thanks to Rose Ruiz, a Lincoln Rotarian who works with the Food Bank, for orchestrating this event. On the day of the event, she was everywhere making things run like clockwork. Special thanks to Lincoln Spanish SDA Church for hosting the event. And, of course, many thanks to Placer Food Bank.

Red Angels Precision Wheelbarrow Team in Lincoln Parade
Under the leadership of Rotarian David Cesio, the Precision Wheelbarrow Team developed the Circle, Slip and Crossover maneuvers to show the parade watchers the coordination and fun-to-be-had while being a member of Rotary Club of Lincoln. Also, special thanks to WWII veteran Stix Bellacera for playing the drums, just like he did when he marched down the Chance de Lise in Paris following WWII.
And, Kris Wyatt and Kim Fricke are to be commended for selling Cow Chip Bingo Tickets to parade watchers. Don't miss your chance to win $2000 in the fundraiser event scheduled for September.
Rotarian Rob Wolf did a great job as usually announcing the parade participates.
On August 12, we were also the winner of the Chuck Wing award, given by the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, for the parade entry exhibiting the most spirit. That is the way of the Red Angels. Join us for the parade next year!
