Club News
On Thursday, October 29th , Cameron Park Rotary donated a pallet, including 221 pairs of pants, to Green Valley Community Church to be distributed to homeless people. The clothes were divided among the programs for the homeless of Green Valley Community Church, Job’s Shelter of the Sierra, Project Room Key and Federated Church including the Nomadic Shelter. These groups provide clothing to the homeless and very needy. Within Cameron Park Rotary, this project was initiated by Joe Ryan who was also our contact with a major supplier, managed by Dick Franks, and the clothing was delivered by Steve Long and Richard Grieco.

Our speaker was Cecelia Babkirk, who joined the Peace Corps in June of 2019 when she retired after 45 years in the mortgage business.  She went from the Silicon Valley to Soda, a rural town in the poorest region of Ethiopia.  After three months of “post arrival” training, she served as a 11th grade English teacher at a high school with over 800 students.  In March, she was suddenly evacuated along with other global Peace Corps volunteers due to Covid-19. The emergency evacuation was so sudden that she did not have the opportunity to say goodbye to her students.

Since her return home, Cecelia stayed connected with the rural community she served.  She is working on a global grant project with two areas of focus addressing Basic Education & Literacy, and Economic & Community Development in Soda. 

For those who want to see a replay of Cecelia's very inspiring talk as well as hear her impressions as why there are less Covid cases in Ethiopia than the US,  please follow the link to the Facebook recording  and scroll the progress bar at the bottom to the 16 minutes, 18 seconds point.

 
Gary Campbell, is Board Vice President and Director of Programming and Development with Sierra Community Access Television: Comcast Channel 2. This public access channel provides a wide variety of programs chronicling community events in El Dorado County.  Since he regularly features our Club events, as well as short segments highlighting our Club, the Club, represented by PP and Foundation Chair, Bill Hughes, made a donation of $500 to Gary on behalf of Channel 2 at our last meeting.

History: A Home for Headquarters

The idea that Rotary should own its headquarters dates back at least to the 1920 convention, when RI President Albert Adams said that he hoped to someday see the headquarters in a beautiful building of Rotary’s own.
