Home Page Stories

Back by popular demand, our program will be one of the Club's favorites - "Coming to America". Three fellow Rotarians - Amy Chan, Timur Mukminov and Anjali Kausar - will tell the experiences of their family's immigration to the United States. These stories and always interesting in that we learn more about fellow Rotarians and what they went through to get here. One can always count on their stories being inspiring, human dramas. Don't miss it!

This week’s program was a review of the upcoming Fall Festival on September 12th. The team was introduced and co-chairs David Doyle and Sunil Nethisinghe MC’d a parade of activities that highlighted how the Fall Festival has evolved and the many great things this year, including a Robotics Competition, Food Trucks, Kid’s Zone, a high school marching band, educational seminars and the celebration of Cupertino’s 60th Birthday, with FREE cupcakes for all!  This year looks to be the best ever with over 150 booths to visit. Check out the website at SV-FF.com to see everything happening and be sure and go online to volunteer at goo.gl/ikJTtl
Orrin Mahoney describes the layout. We will have a record number of booth.

Joe shared a couple of inspiring quotes that he finds useful, thanks for sharing them.

Susan Latshaw flew up to her Blue Badge accompanied by her sponsor, Gary Latshaw. Judy Wilson commented on how quickly she completed all the tasks and was already involved in so many Rotary activities. Susan is a new member with real Rotary Spirit.

We were all saddened to hear this week of the passing of long-time and dedicated Rotarian, Paul Weiss. Bev Lenihan, Tom Hall and Eva Martin-Long all joined the Presidents club in honor of this great Rotarian. They commented on how active he had been in our club, how he brought so many people in and worked on so many projects and his amazing dedication and generosity. He will be missed by our club.
