Thank you to Girish Balachandran, CEO of Silicon Valley Clean Energy, for sharing his report on how switching to the carbon-free electricity company has affected Sunnyvale. Sunnyvale is one of 13 cities in the county to make the switch. To date, Sunnyvale customers have seen $5.2 million in cost savings and 1.1 billion pounds of carbon dioxide has been avoided from SVCE's carbon-free power supply countywide in 2018.

Congratulations to our double and super sustainers and Paul Harris Society members who received extra special recognition by our visiting District Governor! The Rotary Foundation (TRF) has established many forms of recognition for contributions. A Rotary Foundation Sustaining Member is an individual who contributes, or in whose name is contributed, a minimum of $100. In addition, this individual has the stated intention of becoming a Paul Harris Fellow by contributing a total of $1,000.

During this Rotary year, a special Double-Sustainer Recognition Pin will be given by District 5170 to those who contribute $200 or more to the Annual Programs Fund of TRF. With the permission of the Club President, the District Double-Sustainer Recognition Pin will be presented to donors by the Assistant Governor during a Club meeting with an appropriate ceremony. All Rotarians are encouraged to increase their support of TRF that is so vital for the programs of TRF to continue to serve even more throughout the world.
 

The Paul Harris Society recognizes Rotary members and friends of The Rotary Foundation who elect to contribute $1,000 or more each year to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus Fund, or approved global grants. The purpose of the Paul Harris Society is to honor and thank individuals for their generous, ongoing support of The Rotary Foundation. Thank you all for your contributions!

Thank you District Governor Tim Lundell, Lt. Governor Judy Wilson, and Assistant Governor Tina Orsi-Hartigan for visiting us today and reminding us just how powerful Rotary can be when we work together to change the world. Be the inspiration! 
 
Congratulations to Sunnyvale Rotary Club Secretary Samantha Helton for winning the raffle! For the first time in the 30+ year history of our club's weekly raffle, we were down to the one winning marble in the bag! Every week, Rotarians donate money to purchase tickets. A winning raffle ticket is called and the member gets to draw a marble out of the bag. If they pull a green marble they get a free lunch, but if they pull the one clear marble they win half of the pot! The pot reached over $1,900. Half of the pot goes to the club. The other half is going to Samantha! Congratulations once again Samantha! Next week we'll start over at $125 and will keep going until the next winner!
 
 
Come and get your raffle tickets! For the first time in the 30+ year history of our club's weekly raffle, we are down to the one winning marble in the bag! Every week, Rotarians donate money to purchase tickets. A winning raffle ticket is called and the member gets to draw a marble out of the bag. If they pull a green marble they get a free lunch, but if they pull the one clear marble they win half of the pot! The pot is currently over $1,600. Half of the pot goes toward club administrative expenses. Over the years winning members have donated their half to the Club's Foundation to be used for a variety of local and international projects. If you're feeling lucky come on down! 
 
Thank you to Superintendents Benjamin Picard and Polly Bove for coming to speak to us about the latest goings-on in Sunnyvale and Fremont Union High school districts! The two also shared information regarding each district's bond measures that will be on the upcoming November 6 ballot! Thank you both for signing this week's book to be donated to a Sunnyvale school in support of Rotary's literacy initiative. 
 
The Sunnyvale Rotary Club would like to welcome its newest member to the family, Arcadio Morales! Arcadio is the Senior Director of Development at Sunnyvale Community Services. After a long and distinguished career in student affairs and fundraising in higher education at both Stanford and Santa Clara universities, he is extremely happy to have made the move into the community non-profit world. Since doing so, he has experienced many of those “ah ha, what took me so long to do this” moments. Community engagement is an important part of Arcadio's life. He is a senior fellow of the American Leadership Forum (ALF) of Silicon Valley, class of 2022. He is active in his church, St. Thomas Episcopal in Sunnyvale, where he serves as a lay eucharistic minister, member of the vestry, and chairperson of the stewardship committee. He also helps to plan and is a speaker at Construyendo Futuros (Building Futures), an annual conference that focuses on educating youth and adults about the dangers and prevention of relationship abuse and domestic violence. Arcadio received his undergraduate degree in English from UC Santa Barbara and studied Counseling Psychology at the University of San Francisco.  (From left to right: Club President Michelle Lewis, new club member Arcadio Morales, Sunnyvale Community Services Executive Director Marie Bernard, Arcadio's son Pablo, and Saba Teklu, Sunnyvale Community Services Marketing & Development Coordinator).
