Club members enjoyed getting our holiday spirit on with hundreds of seniors from western El Dorado County at the annual Senior Council Holiday luncheon. Entertainment was provided by the Oak Ridge high school's spirit squad, chamber choir and jazz band. Miss California-Teen sang and, of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus were on hand to spread Christmas cheer. EDH Fire personnel served lunch and then members of our club dished up over 250 banana splits. Such a fun time!
 
One of our Club's highlights of the season is hosting a pancake breakfast for children and families who benefit from Big Brothers / Sisters of EL Dorado County. Over 550 "littles", "bigs", families and first responders enjoyed pancakes, sausages and more while waiting for their turns shopping at Target in El Dorado Hills Town Center. Special thanks to our pancake cooks from EDH Fire!
 
Our 8th annual event to honor, thank and celebrate Veterans was full of great music, dancing and more.
 
Our club presented checks to several local Veteran and Military support groups and then Operation V.E.T from Blue Shield of Ca. surprised everyone with a generous $15,000 donation to the Rotary Club of El Dorado Hills Community Foundation. Several thousands more was raised during the night for local Veteran programs and projects and supporting local military families.
 
We were able to gift dozens of tickets to area Veterans thanks to our sponsors; Western Sign, El Dorado Disposal, Roebbelen Construction, Villiage Life/ Mt. Democrat, Putman Real Estate Team, Martinelli Insurance Agency and El Dorado County Auditor-Controller Joe Harn.
 
Mraz Brewing Company sponsored the beer (Amber Ale and 510 Pale Ale) while West Coast Events catered a tasty taco bar and Milestone restaurant donated much of the wine.
 
The bands really brought a great vibe to the evening, Opening the show was 19 year old breakout blues artist Ryder Green who really got things going, then Cafe R&B brought the house down with a high energy show that brought everyone out to the dance floor. 
 
Thank you to all who attended, but especially, thanks to our Veterans.
 
EDH Rotarians spend the evening filling boxes to be sent to children in developing nations so they can enjoy a special gift this holiday season. Operation Christmas Child is a program through Samaritans Purse. Boxes are filled with items specific to gender and age and include fun and practical things like soap, toothbrush, math sets, games, jump ropes and toys.
Rotarians and fire fighters canvassed "The Hills" neighborhood on Oct 21st offering residents a free check of their smoke alarms, Carbon Monoxide alarms and replacement batteries for existing alarms. This is our longest standing service project and has saved lives in our community.
