 We look forward to seeing you! You will have a fun lunch with many laughs! 

I am honored to serve as President of the Mountain View Rotary Club for 2016-2017. I have enjoyed being a member since 2010 and have learned so much about this wonderful service club. The amount of commitment from members all around the world and the work that has and continues to be done is simply amazing and inspires me to be a better person!
 
Our Rotary International President John Germ’s theme this year is: Rotary Serving Humanity. Our District Governor Jeff Orth’s call to action is: Attract the Young, Have Lots of Fun, Get More Done!
 
We are not a large club but we certainly “get it done”, we work hard on both local and international projects. Some of our local service projects include: Steven’s Creek Trail clean up days, serving meals at Hope’s Corner, community work days for CHAC, CSA, Living Classrooms and Cops & Gobblers. We provide community service grants and local youth scholarships. Our international projects include: Vaccination events in India, AIDS Prevention programs in Liberia & Tanzania, Dental training programs in China and one of our recent projects was a Rotary District Wheelchair Drive, offering mobility to those in need in Monterey Mexico.  We want to make the World a better place so we count on the input from our members & welcome the opportunity to look at projects that are of interest to our membership. The generosity of our club members is something we are very proud of.
 
We also like to have fun…some of our social activities include a rotating dinner, ski trip, golf tournament, ball games and more. We encourage family involvement and enjoy seeing our members and families creating life-long memories!
 
Our weekly meetings are a great way to build long lasting relationships with fellow Rotarians. We have a great speaker program and share a nice hot catered lunch. We also do evening socials which is another opportunity for fellowship. I invite you to visit our club to learn more about how you can help become part of this dynamic & mighty club serving our local & international communities to make the World a better place. Feel free to e-mail me at jmateo@apr.com should you want more information.
 
We are a Fun, Enthusiastic & Inspiring Rotary Family…we are the BEST Rotary Club around!
 
Sincerely,
Jerylann Mateo

June 20, 2017 – Notes by Jack

 
Jack – Greeter and Thought for the Day – Congratulations to the Golden State Warriors.  Great Quotes from the players.
 
Doesn’t matter where you come from, what you have or don’t have… All you need to have is faith in God, and undying passion for what you do, what you choose to do in this life, and a relentless drive and the will to do whatever it takes to be a successful at whatever it takes to be successful at whatever you put your mind to.  --- Stephen Curry
 
I’ve learned what it feels like to lose, believe me.  But I think in the end that is just going to make winning that much better.  --- Kevin Durant
 
I know that hard work got me here.  And the day I stop working this can all go away.  --- Kevin Durant
 
You can’t get much done in Life if you only work on the days when you feel good.  --- Jerry West
 
Phil Armi – Songmaster, sang “Let me call you sweetheart” He’s celebrating his 65 year anniversary.

Our auctions have added over $2,250.00 thus far.
 
Scott provided us an update on his Atlanta Rotary International Trip.  The theme of the event:  celebrating 100 years of the Rotary Foundation.  Bill and Melinda Gates were present to pledge another 1.2 billion matching to fight polio.  His goal to validate this is 2020.   It was a great learning experience for Scott.   
 
 
District Announcements:
Jerylann – Polio Flash Campaign.  We ask that every member contribute $26.50 to the End Polio Now campaign.   Why $26.50?  That was the amount of the very first contribution to the Rotary Foundation in 1917. 
Speaker for today – Vickie Grove, Executive Director & Marcos Senz, Community Relations Director of Community School of Music & Art (CSMA) (http://arts4all.org), here in Mountain View.  They are celebrating 50 years of service.  Vickie thanked the Rotary for their service for this concert season.  The school provides music and art to everybody from full paid vs non-paid.  The school provides art and music to over 50 schools.  In addition, they provide lessons to businesses such as Google and Intel.  Vickie and Marcos played a concert piece from one of these concerts.  All concerts can be viewed via you tube.  If other businesses, nonprofits, need meeting space, the facility can be rented out.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
