President's Message

Your Title Here

So these are pretty crazy times, huh?  The board and I will be getting together next week (video style) to discuss ways to keep us all connected during this time of unprecedented quarantining.  We all love doing community service and we have a few service opportunities below for you to consider.  Hopefully we'll find a way to get back to the more hands-on experiences soon. 
I'd like to welcome our newest members to the club...Brian & Claudine Niski and Jim Gragg!  The Niski's were recommended to us by Adam Campbell and they are an awesome pair.  They are new to Rotary and are raising triplet teens so you can only imagine what their house is like right now!  Jim Gragg is a seasoned Rotarian having previously been a member of the Sacramento Club and then the Granite Bay club.  He lives and breathes service and is looking forward to continuing his Rotary membership with Passport One.
In the meantime, I encourage you to join in on the District's How You Doin? online get together tomorrow morning.  Several of our members will be participating - Mike Reinero is hosting, Dan Chrystal will be providing inspiration, and Barbara Singleterry and I will be panelists.  I encourage you to register to receive your link so you can join in the fun.
Hang in there and we'll all see each other soon!

Thank you for Recording your Service Hours!
Thanks to everyone who logged service hours for the year.  We recorded over 4,500 hours of service.  In terms of Lives Saved (40 hours of service & donations = 1 life saved) we saved/affected over 112.5 lives this past year. 
Thank you for making a difference! 
Joint Mtg w/ Rotary Club of Roseville
What a great time Passport One had at the joint meeting with the Rotary Club of Roseville
We performed a joint service project by putting together emergency car kits for Taylor House
and Care Baskets for Stand Up Placer.  With each bag and basket, members wrote notes of encouragement to let these women know many people are rooting for them
to continue moving forward.
Big Thanks to Trudy Harris for helping make this happen!
Give Blood
Vitalant (previouslyKnown as Bloodsourse) is reaching out in need of blood donations.  If you're healthy and have the time, please consider donating.  CLICK HERE to make an appointment. 
When asked, please let them know you are donating in the name of Rotary Passport Club #156
Giving blood is a community service activity and equals 2 hours of service.
Mustard Seed In Need of Help
Still looking for a way to give back during these strange times? 
The Mustard Seed School at Loaves & Fishes Homeless Shelter 
has an urgent need for sliced bread.  They are supporting families that have kids home from school now and are no longer getting the benefit of the meals programs at their school - for many, a nutritious breakfast and lunch was served to the kids under states and federal nutrition programs.  The need for additional food support has increased quite a bit for not only the kids, but their families as well.
They can actually use any type of snack for the lunches - but bread is vital to put together a nutritious lunch they can hand out to their clients.
So... if you have the opportunity to drop a few loaves off on your way to work, on your way home, or if you are just out for a drive,  spread some love with a little bread.
You can drop off donations Mon- Fri from 7 am to Noon at the Loaves & Fishes warehouse, 1321 North C Street. You simply pull up and someone will come get the item, you don't even leave your car.
