Once again, an amazing event at an amazing location.  Everyone had a great time as we raised funds for our clubs many international projects. Check out the slideshow of all the pictures by clicking here.
 
 

 
 
If it wasn't a record at our Aug 28th meeting to discuss "The Wright Brothers", by David McCollough, it was pretty darn close.
 
A total of 22 Rotarians and friends attended our discussion, expertly moderated by Gary Latshaw.  Most of us think we already know something about the story of the Wright brothers.  But readers were surprised to find how resilient they were, how much trial and error they employed, and how self-reliant they proved to be.  Interesting parallels were brought up to the same characteristics that led to Silicon Valley trailblazers. Other comments were "a great read", "extremely well-researched", and "one of our best book choices so far!".
 
Next up on Sept 28 (7PM, at the Y) is "Factory Man - How One Furniture Maker Battled Offshoring, Stayed Local, and Helped Save an American Town" by Beth Macy.  Moderating will be Tom Scannell.  Co-leader Judy Wilson and I hope you can join us!

New Member Induction:
Membership co-chair, Judy Wilson, announced the induction of Rose Ann Wolpert to our club. Rose Ann's sponsors are Helene Davis, Jayne Ham and Judy Wilson. Her varied background in construction materials, childrens books and community philanthropy made choosing her designation a challenge.  We are all excited to welcome her to our club.
 

Featured Program:
Sandy James introduced our speaker Reed Moulds from Sand Hill partners, who proceeded to give us a little history about Vallco Mall and then announce te plans for the total revitalization including over $40M of support for local schools and a 30 acre park above the development. Over $3B will be spent to make this an amazing property for the citizens of our area. It was an amazing presentation, with far too much detail to describe here. Click here to see the presentation in its entirety. Thanks again to Reed for rolling out the plans a our rotary meeting.
