The Elements of the Banner

Grapes - Leaves, Tendrils, Canes, Clusters:

    The grapes symbolize the agricultural aspects of life in the Plymouth-Foothills area. Both clusters are from the Zinfandel family of grapes - what the wine industry is based on in the Shenandoah Valley, Fiddletown, and Fair Play American Viticultural Areas. Tendrils trailing from the canes run above the Rotary logo and hug the California Golden Poppies - domesticated and wild plants in unison making a beautiful area.

California Golden Poppies:

    The state flower of California is planted in many plots in downtown Plymouth and city's outskirts. Many of these plots were seeded in late 2006 and 2007 - the same time our Club was being formed.

Rotary Logo:

    A gearwheel with 24 cogs and six spokes - a keyway signifies the usefulness of the gearwheel. The emblem represents both civilization and movement.

Gold Veins along the Cosumnes River:

    Essentially, the geographic location from which the Rotary Club of Plymouth-Foothills draws its membership. The nearest Clubs from Placerville, Ione, the Upcountry, and Sutter Creek all fall on the border of this region. Each of the nuggets along the three forks of the Cosumnes River here represents a member or a potential member. Each in its own, a valuable resource, and new members can always be discovered. All the water (of the Cosumnes River) shown on the banner represents community.

Text Showing the Name of our Rotary Club:

    Chosen for the city the Club meets in and, again, a typical description of the geographic surroundings. The foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains encompass millions of acres - this is the part of them around the Plymouth area.

Oak Leaf Floating in the Water of the Cosumnes River:

    A California native, the Valley Oak is a sight visible in the local area. Its lobed leaves are probably the prettiest of the family of oaks.

Gold Pan with Overflowing Gold Nuggets:

    Now that Plymouth is due to grow and prosper again, the local businesses can give back a little to help everyone grow in the community. The overflowing gold is the community outreach of the Rotary Club.
