Club members invited District Governor Jack Arney and his wife Maureen to help fill gift boxes.

A good time was had by all at the 23rd annual Wine at Town Center. Hundreds of event goers sampled the finest wines in our region, enjoyed tastes from several area restaurants and helped raise thousands for the programs and services our club provides year round. Thanks to all for coming out in support. Visit the wineries, restaurants and sponsors by clicking on their logo at www.wineattowncenter.org
 
 
Help Mito Kids, a 501c3 non profit founded by El Dorado Hills Rotarian Carol Pomares held their 9th annual 5k Run Walk to raise awareness for children suffering from mitochondrial disease. 
Another great turnout with lots of volunteer support from our club and the Oak Ridge Interact Club.
 
Mitochondrial disease occurs when the mitochondria fail to carry out their primary functions. When they fail, cells lose much of their ability to produce energy and sustain growth.  Without properly functioning cells, entire organs can be damaged or shut down completely. Children are primarily affected by the disease. Their lives can be severely compromised.  Common symptoms include: muscle weakness and pain, gastrointestinal disorders, poor growth, cardiac disease, liver disease, diabetes, respiratory problems, seizures, visual/hearing problems, and susceptibility to infection. There is no cure for Mitochondrial disease.  Treatments given to curtail symptoms vary from patient to patient, and there can be many periods of trial and error.  Because so little is known about the disease, there are only a few hospitals in the world that offer treatment.  
As a result, affected families are sometimes forced to travel great distances to seek care. Help Mito Kids offers support to these families to help ease the financial strain placed on them and also supports research projects at Stanford University to better understand, treat and find a cure for mitochondrial disease.

Rotarians, Interactors, families and friends help spread tens of thousands of eggs for the annual EDHCSD Easter Egg hunt. 
It takes us about 45 minutes to spread them around the field...and about 45 seconds for the kids to scoop them all up!
 
 
Eight students ranging from 9th to 12th grade competed in the annual Rotary Club Speech Contest. The topic this year is "Making a Difference" which also happens to be the Rotary International theme. Each student gave an impressive 5 to 8 minute speech in front of our Rotary Club members, our distinguished guests and a panel of expert judges.  The winner took home a check for $250 and a spot in the district semi finals. Great job students!
 
The morning starts off with fellowship, coffee and a great breakfast from West Coast Events.
