San Ramon, CA, July 1, 2016 – San Ramon Regional Medical Center CEO Gary Sloan was recently recognized for his outstanding leadership as the president of the Rotary Club of San Ramon.
During Gary Sloan’s presidency, the Rotary Club of San Ramon had an outstanding year. Following are a few highlights of the year in review and the projects completed with the CEO from San Ramon Regional Medical Center at the helm.
The Iron Horse Trail Project
The Iron Horse Trail Project was a collaborative project with the City of San Ramon to enhance the Iron Horse Trail through the installation of ten rest nodes featuring benches, trees, scrubs and irrigation.
The project included a joint Rotary Club workday project featuring a cleanup campaign along the trail with Cal High Interact students and San Ramon Boy Scouts. The six club joint Rotary Club project resulted in a $28,000 donation for the City of San Ramon’s Iron Horse Trail Improvement.
The Rotary Club also sponsored an essay contest for students to write about what the Iron Horse Trail means to them and their community. A cash prize was awarded to the three finalists pictured below, who attended the bench dedication ceremony on the Iron Horse Trail with Mayor Bill Clarkson.
Senior Smoke Alarm Project
Each year Rotarians assist Seniors in the Sunny Glen Community. Rotarians install replacement Smoke Alarms and Carbon Dioxide Alarms where none or inoperable alarms exist. It’s a great day to visit with seniors and lend a helping hand.
