We are SOLD OUT!  Friday Dec. 15th at 6pm will be a packed house at Los Gatos Theatre to view Star Wars the Last Jedi.  Invite your family & friends to join us before the movie for Happy Hour at Gardino Ristorante Italiano starting at 4pm.  

Preparing for the next BIG earthquake was the topic of our guest speaker today.  Chris Nance has been the chief communications officer for the not-for-profit California Earthquake Authority (CEA)—the largest earthquake insurance provider in the United States, and one of the largest in the world—since 2008. The 30 minutes he spoke went by much too fast.  There is a 99% chance of a M6.7 or larger earthquake to hit us in the next 30 years and you should get insured.  Insurance of earthquake has dropped by 55%.

Community service
Serving at St. Luke's pantry Tuesday
“For Los Gatos Rotarians, Service and Fellowship are two intertwining themes that drive much of what our club does. Rotary was honored to partner with Rebuilding Together SV to revitalize the home of a local Los Gatos resident."
Thank you Rotarian for giving to 6 families; which included 25 children, 6 Mothers, and 2 Dads.  What a blessing it was to see the joy on their faces receiving these gifts. Photo: a few of Santa's helpers.

Join us - we are people of Action

We meet every Tuesday 12:30-1:30pm at the Los Gatos Lodge.  Every month we complete a community service project, host social events, offer networking opportunities that build personal and professional connections.  Our two largest fund raiser are held in January CrabFest and Auction and April The Great Race of Los Gatos.  We raised enough money in 2016/17 to give $128,000 to both local and International charities.  

Rotary's 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to Service Above Self. In more than 34,000 clubs worldwide, you'll find members volunteering in communities at home and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio.
