The fight is not over and your help is needed now. District 5170 is conducting a
"Flash Campaign" (60 days) which started March 1 and will run until April 30.
Every Rotarian in our district is being asked to "join the team" and contribute a
one-time $50.00 donation to The Rotary Foundation, in support of the End Polio
Now campaign. Your $50.00 donation will be matched 2 to 1 by the Bill and
Melinda Gates Foundation thus bringing your contribution to $150.

Your HELP is needed today...
 
The Children of the World are counting
on you!
 
Today was club assembly, several topics were discussed, see the "Read More" link below.
 
One of the announcements from Linda was that our member Assistant Governor Karen McNamara had received the District 5170 Karl Stucki award at the PETS conference over the weekend.  This is named for the PDG Karl Stucki and is awarded each year to the Rotarian in the District who "best exemplifies Rotary ideals".

Jim Coffis of the GreenTrade Santa Cruz coalition spoke to the group today.  GreenTrade is a coalition of local cannabis related businesses and organizations. Santa Cruz is home to hundreds of small and medium sized cannabis growers and businesses who, for years, have been the innovators in the industry and significant contributors to the economy. Working together, we will elevate and amplify the conversation around the social, therapeutic and economic benefits of cannabis in our community and raise awareness of the unique and unduplicated quality of the Santa Cruz “brand”.

There was a board meeting of the club following the regular meeting.  Members are invited to look over the minutes of the meeting: log into the Member Area and under the Admin tab click the link to View Club Documents.  All of our recent Board meeting minutes are there.

This afternoon the Area 7 Rotary Clubs held their speech contest in the second tier toward the national contest.  This photo has the contestants, Karen McNamara, Area 7 AG, Dr Laurie Bruton SLVUSD Supervisor and a Rotary District official working on the District 5170 roll-up of these high school competitions.  He is attending all these second tier contests, but your correspondent forgot to jot his name for you!

This was our first and experimental evening meeting.  The purpose is to attract some potential club members who for various reasons cannot come to our weekly breakfast meetings.  Several of the officers and committee chairpersons spoke this evening.
