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!

Meeting Minutes by Heather

June 12th, 2018

                                                             
 
The meeting was called to order at 12:35pm by President Scott.    
 
The Pledge of Allegiance was lead by Bert
 
Heather shared two thoughts:  The first in honor of graduates by Eleanor Roosevelt “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”  The second to wish all the fathers a Happy Father’s Day:   Larry Bird said, "If there was a payment to the bank due, and we needed shoes, she'd get the shoes, and then deal with them guys at the bank. I don’t mean she wouldn’t pay the bank, but the children always came first.”
 
Bert led the introduction of visiting Rotarians: Sue L (Oakland) and Nick (Evergreen).

Today’s program was introduced by Fred of Rotary Vietnam Project. District 5170 Interactors, Xuan and Huongle, shared the mission of Fighting slavery with scholarships — One soccer ball at a time. The project fights slavery through scholarships to help Vietnamese girls and boys vulnerable to human traffickers to attend school at no cost to their family. Often families are deceived by offers of fake jobs. The project seeks donations by directly sponsoring a student scholarship or purchase indestructible soccer balls.  The Interactors with support by a few local Rotarians have a current goal of $40,000.  For more information:   https://rotaryvietnamproject.weebly.com

The meeting was adjourned at 1:20pm.
Have a great week!
And remember…“Make a Difference and have Fun!”
