President's Message May

Your Title Here

Being a club built on service, it's been hard giving back to our communities when we are being ordered to stay home because of COVID19.  However, now that the world is beginning to open, I'm ready to get back to doing what I love most, serving those in need.  
As Rotarians, we are all philanthropists, whether it's by giving time or by giving money.  I'm sure we're all feeling the same pull - to make a difference, especially now.  When Rise Against Hunger put the word out they needed help packaging 21,000 bags of food, Mike and I jumped at the chance.  Feeling healthy and ready to take on the world, we got out of the house, put on our gloves and masks, and filled 11,000 bags of food with the help of other fellow Passport One members. 
Life is much more than sitting in my home waiting for time to pass.  I'm so thankful the world is beginning to open up again and that so many of us are healthy.  While I understand the need to be cautious, and to wear a mask because it's the kind thing to do, I look forward to us all being together again to do what we do best...serve.
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!

In Drawful, each player receives a weird and unique prompt that they must
try to draw on their mobile device (without the aid of an eraser).
After each “artist” presents their work,
everyone else anonymously submits a title that could fit this bizarre drawing.

Sunshine Help
If you're looking for service you can provide from your home, here's an opportunity to provide hope, happiness and a smile right now to seniors, veterans, and women who have suffered from abuse.  Trudy Harris has provided us template instructions and mailing addresses and contact information for the following organizations:  EskatonSnowline Hospice, American Legion Rocklin, and Stand Up Placer
If you'd like to put a smile on someone's face who's struggling, continue reading for how to make that happen.

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.
Project Volunteer Surge
One more opportunity to get training to provide service from your home:
In the last three weeks, a nonprofit founded by Rotary members, The Global Impact Group, has been instrumental in an effort to roll out a citizen volunteer opportunity called Volunteer Surge. This Group was co-founded by Rotary members in Districts 5160 and 6900, and clubs throughout the country are joining in this effort. 
I urge you to click HERE to go onto the TGIG website and learn more. You’ll see that this is an immediate opportunity for us to help our communities, as well as the nation, in the fight against COVID-19! 
Click HERE to watch a video of the presentation of this inspirational effort, given to a large group of district governors. It will answer a lot of your questions.
