Getting to Know Him - Vince Iosso
Vince (endearingly called “Vinny”) was born on July 3rd, 1941 at St. Vincent Hospital in Bridgeport, Connecticut. His mother said that he had a hospital named after him and that, at his birth, a holiday was declared the day after his birth.
His father came over the pond from Italy when he was 18 through Ellis Island. As is common to the time, his father’s original name was “Iossa”, but was changed to “Iosso” in the process. Vince says that in the Italian town where the family came from, “Iossa” is a very common name.
Vince’s mother was also a full-blooded Italian whose parents also came through Ellis Island. He had two sisters who have since passed away and one currently living in Connecticut. Vince says that he was “spoiled rotten” and his sisters would do everything for him growing up.
In the fifth grade, he became an alter boy and later worked at weddings and funerals – he learned to stick close to the “best man” because he almost always got a tip.
He decided in high school that he had the “calling” to become a priest, and he actually visited seminaries (his mother was quite proud of him) and he took a course at a catholic school – Fairfield College Prep, but he got another calling “called” Maryanne. They were married on September 1, 1963. Also In 1963, he earned a Business Degree from Fairfield University and was eligible for the draft. He chose the program  the Army offered to serve 6 months active duty along with 5 years in the reserves. Guess what? Vince got into a finance unit and after basic training, went to Ft. Bragg. Then, in 1975, he moved to Cupertino and worked for a company that was across the street from a small startup company named “Apple”. Vince said the move out of Connecticut was a big deal because they both had extensive families there – but Vince told his wife about the opportunity, Maryanne immediately said “lets go” and they went.
Eventually after being a comptroller with 4 different medical groups, Vince became attached to a Anesthesiologist’s group in Sacramento where he spent 20 years, and recently retired.   He met Dr. Stan Roe, anesthesiologist, who introduced him to Rotary and became a Carmichael Rotarian. He has now been a Rotarian for almost 15 years.
Vince has a son who is a FedEx pilot and a daughter who is a flight planner. He has two grandson’s, Francesco 18 and Giovanni 16.
He has recently moved to Wisconsin to be near his family and is about to go through his first winter there. However, he is so dedicated to the Carmichael Rotary Club that he remains an active member (through Zoom) and is actually our functioning secretary!
 
 
Project Life Long - Sean La Tour-Jarquin
Project Lifelong  Presenter: Sean LaTour-Jarquin - Sean LaTour-Jarquin is a thirty-three  year-old Sacramento resident with a passion      to empower children  through non-traditional enrichment programs. He graduated from El Camino High School in 2006 and was born and raised in Carmichael.  In 2014, Sean obtained his bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in education and  mathematics as well as a minor in Human Movement from California State University, Monterey Bay. Mr. LaTour-Jarquin’s college senior project examines the positive effects in creating scholastic  skateboarding programs among implementing other alternative sports. His research produces an analysis that focuses on the    positive social/emotional benefits of traditional sports and how a similar platform for positive adult mentoring and leadership can exist within a youth skateboarding program. Upon graduation, Sean received a grant from the Sheriff’s Community Impact Program, funding his first pilot  summer program; this program would become known as Project Lifelong. After seven years of building this program, Project Lifelong became a 501c3 in 2021.
Sean told us of his passion to bring the benefits of children who do alternative sports or activities commensurate with those who do "traditional sports" which are offered in schools throughout our country. He  has support from  Carmichael Park and schools in the area to allow his "Skate boarding" program to their venues. He showed a wonderful video about a young man who grew up skate boarding and what it meant to him and how he thrived. The same benefits that children get from traditional sports can be obtained with alternative activities such as Skateboarding, hiking and other activities. By the way, did you know that skateboarding has become an Olympic Sport recently?
Our non-skateboarding President Dick Bauer, thanked Sean for his interesting and inspirational presentation and let him know that a book will be donated, in his honor to the Carmichael Public Library (subsidiary of the Sacramento Public Library.

Donations as of 10-20-2021
During the incumbency of President David Thorman(2013-14) it was decided that instead of giving a particular gift, ie coffee mug, pen etc. to honor our guest speaker each week, we would simply donate a book to the Carmichael Library. So below are many of the books that we have donated in honor of recent speakers.
It is the "gift that keeps of giving" because those who will check out these books from the library will derive many hours of pleasure for years to come, and it enhances learning and literacy. The books are chosen by Berta Boegel, Branch Supervisor, Carmichael Library, subsidiary of the Sacramento Public Library
rboegel@saclibrary.org
Due to the quantity of books donated as of 1-5-2021 (NEARING 400), I have noted only the last 20 or so. The prior tabulations of books donated have been archived and will be in the memory of the Carmichael Club in Club Runner.
