2018 – 2019 Message from President Bert
Thank you for visiting our website! Now, how about visiting our club? We are a group of local business, professional, and civic leaders. We meet regularly, listen to and interact with interesting and inspiring speakers, and we participate in worthwhile projects both within our local community and throughout the world.
In 1990 I left a position at Hewlett Packard to help my wife operate a small business in Mountain View, and I quickly joined Rotary to learn more about our community. Since then, Rotarians—in Mountain View, and throughout the world! --  have become some of the key people whom I trust, am friends with, do business with, and am inspired by. Through Rotary, I have personally experienced feeding the poor in Mountain View; delivering wheelchairs to folks who couldn’t afford them in Belize; and helping to eliminate polio in India and Africa.
Our club theme this year is “Have Fun Being the Inspiration.” We organize and participate in fun projects, through which we accomplish significant tasks—but we need more members to help us succeed. Come to any meeting and check us out!

Vocational Talk – Phil Armi.   Phil was born in Hanford, near Fresno.   He majored in music at San Jose State, then “side tracked” to dentistry, graduating from Northwestern.   He practiced dentistry in the military, focusing on children dentistry.  After starting his dentistry practice in the Mountain View area, he was invited into Rotary membership … which he has been a member of ever since.   
Program:  Introduced by Judy.  
We received an update on the Foothill-De Anza Community College District from its Chancellor, Dr. Judy C. Miner.
Dr. Miner has worked as a higher education administrator since 1977 and in the California Community Colleges since 1979. She has held numerous administrative positions in instruction, student services, and human resources at City College of San Francisco, the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office, De Anza College, and most recently at Foothill College where she served as president from 2007 to 2015.
Dr. Miner said she is constantly inspired by her colleagues at the District.   De Anza College recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary and Foothill College celebrated its 60th Anniversary.  She provided updates on a number of things happening in the District, including:   recent grants received, global learning programs, student accomplishments, musical theater program, the Family Engagement Institute, a new food service provider program with Google, and much more.  She said that Measure C, passed in 2006, made such a difference throughout the campuses.  Responding to a question, Dr. Miner said the average cost for a student per year at Foothill-De Anza is $1,500.
