Local Area tidbits

Summer’s here, can you feel it? We certainly can! Though some of us have already planned what we’re going to do this summer, there are some of you out there who just aren’t sure, or don’t know where to begin the planning. Well, look no further folks! The cities of Roseville and Rocklin have their 2008 Summer Recreation Guides online and ready to give you plenty of ideas on how to get the most out of this summer season. Featuring plenty of activities, aquatics events, day camps and more, these guides will aid you in your quest to combat the summer couch potato syndrome. For Roseville, visit roseville.ca.us/parks <a href="http://www.roseville.ca.us/parks" target=" blank">roseville.ca.us/parks</a>, and for Rocklin, visit rocklin.ca.gov

Speaking of aquatics and swimming, we congratulate the Aquatics Division of the Parks and Recreation Department of Roseville for receiving the 2008 National Excellence in Aquatics Award! Having demonstrated excellence in the organization and administration of diversified aquatics services, Roseville is the only city in its class to receive this award. Way to go Roseville!...

A big kudos is in order for some local Rotarians who never miss a chance to help out. In fact, it appears that these two chaps don’t miss much of anything...

We tip our hats to the Rotary Club of Roseville’s David Fiddyment and John Piches, for completing 60 years of membership with perfect attendance and for their nomination for the Senior Volunteer(s) of the Year award in the Sacramento region. No other Rotary club worldwide in the 100 year-plus history of Rotary International can lay claim to this achievement…

Here’s another cause for celebration, the Keaton Raphael Memorial of Roseville celebrated its 10th anniversary on April 30! Maybe a little belated, but happy anniversary! The care and support that they provide for local children and their families is an inspiration to all, and an excellent service to humanity. And, more news on the donation and philanthropic front…

Lakemont Homes, the builder of the newest Eskaton Villages (multi-service retirement communities) located in Roseville and Placerville, donated a high-grade carpet to the Sierra II Senior Center on 24th Street in Curtis Park. Though this isn’t strictly local news, it’s always good to see a company that has worked locally to engage in philanthropic endeavors. A new carpet was what the center needed, and Lakemont delivered. Lakemont, we commend you!...

The 2008 Notes on Boats event, brought to you by Catalina 22 Fleet 4 along with the Folsom Yacht Club, both non-profit organizations, will be taking place on June 14 in New York Cove on Folsom Lake. If you’ve got a sailboat or powerboat, or just want to see something cool, bring some snacks and enjoy this “music on the water day.” The proceeds from the event will go to Fleet 4 and their Big & Little Brothers & Sisters of Sacramento Sail Day event. Check out the full details at catalina22fleet4.org/index.html...

And last, but certainly not least, the long-awaited grand opening of Fountains at Roseville is finally upon us. Don’t miss the grand opening on June 30!...

Until next issue, be sure to get off the couch, get outside and have fun… but stay cool! •
