What's Happening at Passport One:
Rotarians from Passport One were busy last week with service projects focused on assisting those members of our community that need food security.  President Bill spent a morning working with La Familia in South Sacramento as they distributed fresh produce and school lunches.  Beth Ellinthorpe and Sara Thornros spent a day at the Auburn Food Pantry preparing meals and sorting food for distribution.  Almost 30 million Americans have reported in recent months that they are struggling with food insecurity and do not have enough to eat.  Programs like these are important for helping us pull together to address this problem.  We hope to see you volunteering with similar programs in your community, and if you cannot give your time, there is always a need for food and cash donations.
Rotary Passport One will be hosting our first general meeting of the 2020-2021 Rotary Year this Thursday, July 16, 2020.  Due to the recent spike in Covid-19 cases and shutdowns of local businesses, we will be hosting this meeting in an online format through Zoom.  The meeting with be about the process of building community with a dialogue on diversity, inclusion, service, Rotary, and the Sacramento area.  Our guest speakers will be Chinua Rhodes and Paul Willis, who have worked for years building community in the region through their shared love of diversity, music, and social justice.  f you are interested in attending, please feel free to contact our President, Bill Bowen, to get an invitation to the event.  
On the last day of the Rotary calendar, Passport One wants to say thank you to our 2019-2020 President Leigh-Ann Reinero for the amazing work she has done.  It would not be hyperbole to say that she led our club through one of the most difficult periods in Rotary history with the ease and confidence of a natural leader.  As the community locked down with the Covid-19 pandemic, President Reinero worked to keep our members meeting virtually, organized community service projects, and created online game nights that left all of us in stitches.  
We cannot imagine a better leader in these trying times, and we are so happy that she was here when we needed her.  She leave big shoes for our next President to fill! 

Rotary Passport One was proud to make a donation of more than $1,600 in gift cards to Keaton's Child Cancer Alliance. Covid-19 prevents many patients from finding hotels near their treatment centers, so we were happy to make a donation to help cover some of their transportation costs.
