Red Badge Talk: Bob Pruitt presented his life in rhyme. It was fantastic. Bob was born in the Midwest and moved a few times before coming to California.

He is now with the love of his life, Rotarian Susan Black, and they love to travel and visit grandchildren and enjoy their second home on the beach in Oceanside.
Induction: Welcome to new member Adrienne Moberly, also known to us as the pie lady. Her sponsor is Tom Dyer and her classification is Adult Education.  Although born in LA, she grew up in the bay area and has always focused on education.  She likes to ski and travel and is dedicated to rebuilding a Tibetan Monastery.
Richard D King Tribute: PDG’s Orrin Mahoney and Jim Walker relayed to the club some history of the venerable Richard King, past RI president and his accomplishments and showed us pictures of the recent event honoring him with over 500 attendees who donated over $150K at the event, with an additional $200K pledged in his honor. He is a great speaker (and why our speech contest is named after him) and he had significant influence directly on our clubs focus and ongoing support of TRF.
Speaker Program: PDG Jim Walker introduced our program for this week. Bob Pagett from Assist International (AI). AI has been a partner of Cupertino Rotary since our first international trip to Estonia many years ago, and we have done many projects together including our most recent one to Romania.  Bob described the history of AI starting in 1989, the evolution of their work focusing on medical assistance in spite of no medical background by he or Charlene. They have done over 600 projects and now have a focus on orphans support as well as medical work. Check out the video of our speaker to learn more by clicking here.
