Opportunity!   That is what comes to my mind as I think about this Rotary year (July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018).  Our Mountain View Rotary Club theme is "Having Fun Making a Difference."   What an opportunity we have to serve our community, our region, nation, and the world through Rotary, and have fun doing it together!
 
In 1980 I was invited by a business acquaintance to join Rotary in Southern California.  I joined for the networking opportunities with top leaders in our community who comprised Rotary membership.   I found these connections very beneficial.   But, I stayed in Rotary and developed a strong internal motivation to participate because of opportunities to serve; to serve not only our local community in a variety ways, but to serve beyond local, out to the entire world through this amazing Rotary network.   I also experienced the fun of participating in worthwhile activities with leaders who became my friends. 
 
This year, the Rotary Club of Mountain View has plans to continue making a difference in our community, nation, and world ... and, have a bunch of fun while doing this!  We will continue our proud club tradition of "service above self," which goes back to the founding of our club over 90 years ago.   As Rotarians we stand ready to welcome new members into our club.   Come and check us out!  
 
2017-18:  A year of opportunity!

Program:
 
Anita introduced Shreyani Shah and Meena Sankaren from the organization, PRERNA.  This organization is assisting refugee families from conflict ridden countries.  The presentation explained how the government brings in an approved person or family, turns them over to an organization and provides a cash payment to get them started.
 
When the designated organization finishes with processing, PRERNA takes over and helps the refugee find housing and a job.  They also introduce them to classes to learn English, get the children registered for school, and help them find low cost food and temporary housing.  They always need contributions of money and volunteers to work helping the refugees get started.
