2016 Community Grants Awards Luncheon
  The Community Grants Committee is pleased to announce that they will be awarding $38,500.00 to twenty three worthy nonprofit organizations based in and/or operating in Pasadena. These twenty three organizations will each send a representative to join us for lunch and receive their grant check on Wednesday, April 27th. Funds that are awarded by the Grants Committee are derived from investment income generated by the Pasadena Rotary's Foundation, a 501c3 organization. This year the committee chose to focus on those organizations serving Veterans and at risk and/or developmentally disabled children age 18 and under. There were approximately twenty eight organizations that applied for grants this year. This year, as in the recent past years of low, fixed investment returns, the committee struggled to determine how to allocate the funds allocated as there were so many deserving organizations doing wonderful work in our community deserving of our support. We tried to honor the good work each of these organizations is doing with a grant of some size. Programs will be provided at the luncheon that will detail the awards. We look forward to recognizing these organizations on the 27th! Introducers:  Colleen Carey, Catherine Hany & Debi Kroman Invocation: Mark Nicoletti Guest Introductions: Robert Lyons Song Leader: Darren Norton Accompanist: Ross Jutsum

Kathy's Corner

Sorry I missed the meeting on Wednesday. I'm home with a bad case of shingles. If you have ever had chicken pox you carry the shingle virus. You should get the shingle vaccination whether you've had chicken pox or not.

THE SCOOT ZONE By Justine Adamec, Staff Reporter

Before we get to the account of today's meeting, here's a follow up to our speaker from last week. Marty Frank spoke about women on currency and alerted us that Andrew Jackson would be replaced on the $20 bill. Sure enough, yesterday it was announced that Harriet Tubman would grace the $20 instead of Andrew Jackson. Thanks to Mark Nicoletti and Leah Snell for mentioning it.
President-Elect Shel Capeloto led the meeting because President Kathy was feeling under the weather.
