What We Do
Posted by Arthur Deardorff on Sep 16, 2014

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.

Cow Chip Bingo - Youth Activity Fun Raiser

We gathered Saturday morning in the heat to watch Allie the cow decide who the winner was for our youth activities fundraiser.  After 1hr 5min of carefully choosing the perfect grid location, she let the chips fall.  


Fun for all.  And more importantly, it raised a few bucks to support our Lincoln youth activities, such as:

  • Sending students to Rotary Youth Leadership Awards camp
  • Scholarships
  • Support of ReDirect activities
  • Key/Interact Club at Lincoln High School
  • Many others

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.

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!

Best of the Best Service Club - Again


For the third year in a row, Rotary Club of Lincoln was voted best service club by readers of the Lincoln News Messenger.  Congratulations to our members who truly belief in "Service Above Self."  This award was highly influenced by our Literacy projects at Lincoln Schools, our other work with the youth of Lincoln, our speakers at our weekly meetings and our diligent efforts to keep the community updated via facebook and our website.
