What's Happening at Passport One:
A big welcome to the newest members of Rotary Passport One...
Gretchin Tobin and Julia Shobahzian!
 
The next meeting for Rotary Passport One will be held on Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.  Please note that we are meeting at a different location, the Citrus Heights Community Center in the Senior Center Room.  This will be a great evening of fellowship, fun, and learning about our ongoing work in the community.  This will also be a great opportunity to hear from some students who have participated in the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards ("RYLA") program.  Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive leadership experience organized by Rotary clubs and districts where you develop your skills as a leader while having fun and making connections.  District 5180 and Rotary Passport One have supported students at weeklong camps in the local wilderness.  Participants learn to build communication and problem-solving skills, discover strategies for becoming a dynamic leader in their own community, and form lasting friendships.  
 
The Citrus Heights Community Center is located at 6300 Fountain Square Drive, Citrus Heights, CA 95621.  
 
In January 2019, Rotary International's General Secretary John Hewko gave a powerful speech regarding bringing innovation and flexibility into the Rotary model.  Rotary Passport One was honored that Mr. Hewko specifically referenced our own club's development and the ways in which we have adapted to meet the needs of new Rotarians.  In a few short years, our model of flexibility in meetings and affordable dues has spread to more than a dozen passport clubs around the world.  We agree with his concern that Rotary is at a crossroads regarding meeting the needs of our communities.  We can choose to innovate to better serve our communities or we can choose to resist change and loose touch with our stated purpose of Service Above Self.
 
If you are curious about Rotary, please visit one of our meetings or socials to see how you can connect to others in the community who are interested in building strong professional skills while making new friends and serving the community.  We welcome all guests and look forward to seeing you in the future!
 
You can find a pdf with Mr. Hewko's full comments here.

Members from Rotary Passport One enjoyed a fantastic night that included dinner at Mooyah and then hopping over to the Rocklin Theater to see some crazy good talent perform West Side Story!  It was great fun to see Past President Michael Reinero take the stage in uniform and to see Rotarians outside of a normal meeting.  We can't wait to see the next performance!

RISE AGAINST HUNGER Food Packing Event
 
 
On May 17th, Rotarians from clubs in our district as well as members of the community, Rotaractors, high school football players, church groups and a multitude of other volunteers met at Rusch Park Community Center and packed over 70,000 meals that will be distributed to those in need throughout the world.
