FOR Rotarians enjoyed a beautiful afternoon at the Saint Tryphon Winery in nearby Sisterdale.  Tasting 5 different wines by this young winery while enjoying great food and great fun with fellow Rotarians.  Thanks to Mary Thompson, Penny Sawyer and Jane Burton for putting this event together.  
 
Five members, from the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks Ranch, recently participated in the Foundation Training that was given in Kerrville.  Pictured below are FOR members, Jackson Moss, Jane Burton, Tom McKeown, Mary Thompson and Bill Fusco with District Governor John Hutcherson and Foundation Chair Jerry Hardy.  
 
Penny Sawyer presents the Guest Speaker, Bart Daniel, a book to be placed in the Fair Oaks Elementary School library, in recognition and appreciation of his presentation and expertise on cyber security in the home and workplace.
 
 
Colleen Housley, Meals on Wheels Coordinator, and and Emily Perry, Director of Development, Rainbow Senior Center, Kronkosky Place, were the guest speakers for the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks Ranch Meeting.  Shown here is Penny Sawyer, presenting them with a book, as a thank you, that will be donated to the Van Raub or Fair Oaks Ranch Elementary School.
 
An enthusiastic group of Fair Oaks Rotarians gather at Bill Fusco’s home; he is newly elected Club president.  The Rotarians were charting  their course for the coming year as 2019-2020 Officers and Board Members.  Rotary rocks!
 
Chuck Ellis shared his classification talk with the the Rotary Club of Fair Oaks Ranch. He owns and operates Accu-Print.  Jim Thompson also shared his classification talk and said he should be classified as a vagabond for everywhere and everything he has done.
 
 
Our Rotary Club supports our community.  We had 16 volunteers at the Fair Oaks Ranch Homeowners' Association Shred Day.  There were about 370 cars that came through and dropped off paper for shredding.  That's a lot of paper saved from going to the dump! 
 
Additionally, we were able to notify the community about our "Save A Life" project and hand out packets.  
This was an incredible meeting with a classification talk from our member Mary Thompson.  We also partied with Justus Ahrens, our German High School Student, for whom this was his farewell visit with our club.  He is heading back to Germany!  We also wanted to thank Lisa an David Dunne for dong a superior job parenting Justus while he was in Texas.  We aren't sure who had more fun!  
We had the pleasure to meet Early Act Students from Van Raub Elementary.  
Our speaker for this week, Paola Martinez,  was selected  by District 5840 to receive a $30,000 Global Education Grant in 2017 to study Disease Prevention and Treatment at the University of South Wales.  She received her Master’s Degree in International Public Health from there.  She was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Boerne Sunrise and the Rotary Club of Kings Cross, Sydney, Australia.  She has completed her studies and is now visiting Rotary Clubs in the District to talk about her experience and encourage Rotarians to think of scholars they might wish to recommend for a future Global Education Grant to do graduate study in a foreign country.
 
We enjoyed another delicious  Fair Oaks Ranch lunch with a salad, vegetable medley, potatoes, and pork loin.  The white cake was an excellent choice to wrap up our meal. 
 
Additionally, The Rotary of Blanco's President thanked us for our guidance and support of their new club.
