SPEAKER HIGHLIGHTS


We had 2 new-member bio presentations, one of the club's most liked programs. First up was Victoria DuPuy. Her mother came from Sacramento via Amtrak for the presentation. She described her life journey, including a background in marketing, advertising and 
psychology. Her current passion is in her non-profit No More Broken Hearts, which promotes heart screening in order to prevent heart failure. She has 2 children and a new blended family. Glad to have Victoria aboard!
Next up was Michelle Meyers-Nelson. She had an unusual and well-received video of her life story, with technical assistance from husband Steve. It showed pictures of her youth in the South Bay, a stint on Wheel of Fortune, many appearances on TV cooking segments, and a catering career. Now that she is retired she enjoys her 2 golden retrievers and looks forward to Rotary activities. She finished with fresh hand made chocolate truffles for all. Welcome Michelle!

Speaker Highlights


Our speaker was Maha Elgenaidi, Director of Islamic Networks Group. There were many questions from members. She acknowledged it was difficult to summarize the religion of 1.8 billion people in 30 minutes, but that it is a peaceful religion that is not defined by extremists.

What is Rotary?

 

What would it take to change the world? 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.
