Guest Speaker
 
Cherie Ravel, Dir. Of Adult Programs at JCC gave a moving talk on the Holocaust. Several survivors in this area collaborated to create a Memorial located at JCC. It depicts the destruction of Synagogues, the arrest, and transportation of Jewish people, the Nazi concentration camps and the tattooing of prisoners. Cherie read the recollections of a local survivor. You had to be here to fully feel the impact of what he and others endured.
We are pleased to announce the return of a Los Gatos Morning Rotary tradition - The 2019 Los Gatos Plein Art Fine Art and Wine Tasting Event.
 
For the tenth year, nationally renowned Plein Air artists will paint outdoors for 4 days in and around Los Gatos, California.  This fundraiser supports Art, Music and Science Education in Santa Clara County and will be holding events from June 19th - June 23rd which culminate in a fine art exhibition, sale, and festival in downtown Los Gatos, on Sunday, June 23rd, 2019
