Hello, and thank you for looking at our Rotary Club of Mountain View website.
 
I am Tori Atwell, the President of the Rotary Club of Mountain View for 2023-2024, and I am excited for the new opportunities ahead this year for our Club and hope to share that excitement with others. Our Club offers a lot of opportunities for those who would like to make a worldwide impact or who just want to make friends and help their local community. 
 
Our Club is small, but mighty, and I am proud to say we have members who engage in projects throughout the world as well as those that assist the local community through their direct contacts. In our Club, there are a vast array of opportunities to volunteer or assist with a cause which is important to you or you can introduce a cause you are passionate about and gain support from a world-wide organization.
 
I am a true local to the area, born and raised in Sunnyvale, and a longtime resident and professional in the area.  Despite my years here, I can’t say I really knew that much about the area, but through my decade of Rotary, I feel that I have truly gotten to know my community and become a force to help make good things happen.   Plus, I have made strong bonds and many good friends.
 
Please join us, at one of our weekly Tuesday Lunch Meetings or one of our Club Socials on the last Tuesday evening or each month.
 
If you have an interest in learning more about our Club or any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me so I can open the world of Rotary into your life.
Mountain View Rotary Club Meeting

Tori Atwell, President, reminded all of the Rotary International Theme: “Create Hope in the World.” Scott Johnson then led the Pledge of Allegiance and shared thoughts about Valentine's Day and "Fat Tuesday."
 
Guests
Thida Cornes, school board member and prospective new Rotary Club member, was introduced.
 
Announcements
Paul announced the Marti Gras Party that he and Susan will host at their home on Tuesday evening, February 27th, 5 p.m. Cost will be $25 per person. Paul and Susan's address is available on request.
 
Judy C. gave an update on RYLA camp this year (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards camp). Three student spots have been reserved and paid for, for students representing our club. Judy, Alexander, and Catherine are now working on selecting the students.
 
Scott and Catherine spoke about the Rotary Speech Contest, scheduled for our March 19th meeting. Currently there is a record number of 8 students who are signed up to compete. As in the past, Rotary members will be needed to serve as speech judges that day.
 
Speaker
Judy Crates, Rotary member and on the Community School of Music & Art (CSMA) Board, introduced Vickie Grove, CSMA Executive Director.  Vickie has served in that position since 2013, and is now in her 11th year. She did announce that she will be retiring at the end of this month. CSMA was founded in 1968, has grown and grown, and now provides music and art opportunities for an amazing number of students. Just the CSMA "In-School" Program has 22,000 students involved in 59 schools. There are over 180 staff and the budget exceeds $7 million. Qualifying students can receive up to 70% off their tuitions. Twenty-five to thirty percent of the in-school students are subsidized. CSMA is now offering pre-school programs (ages 2-5). Vickie invited Rotary to start again the usher program for Saturday CSMA performances.  
 
Closing
Tori thanked Vickie for her presentation and thanked all for attending. There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned. There is no meeting next Tuesday, Feb. 20th (dark for Presidents' Day Holiday). Tuesday evening, February 27th, will be the Marti Gras Party (no noon meeting that day). The next lunch meeting will be Tuesday, March 5th.
