The Rotary Club of Rancho Murieta has just received confirmation that we made the Salvation Army "Volunteer Service Clubs Top Ten 2009 Kettle Program" List.

We rated #7 this year with $1,570.96 in contributions.  If you recall, we only rang for 3 hours on three days during the holidays...this means that our generous community provided $174.55 every hour that we rang the bell!

Thank you to all that donated time, thank you to the Plaza Market for allowing us to share space, and most of all thank you to the Rancho Murieta Community for the generous giving that defines our citizens.

Next year, let's get to the top!!!!

The Top Ten Contributing Service Clubs in the Sacramento Area were:

  • Rotary Club of East Sacramento: $6,019.04
  • Church of Latter Day Saints: $3,748.92
  • Sacramento Breakfast/Evening Optimist Club: $2,099.79

It is heartwarming to witness the continuing generousity of our community, especially during these trying times.  Thanks to all who donated, this is a very special community  with special people!
