We watched a video honoring Ed Bowen for receiving the 2018 John D Crummey Red Triangle Award from the YMCA Silicon Valley. Ed was recognized for 49 years of service and remarkable generosity. The video highlighted the work Ed has done with the Y, particularly his work on improvements to Camp Campbell. Congratulations Ed!

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."
Seventy 72 gifts purchase to give to Family Giving Tree who are helping families bring joy to Children on Christmas morning.  What a joy it is to give.

Join us - we are people of Action

We meet every Tuesday 12:15-1:30pm 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.  From the proceeds of our fundraisers, we have created charities and scholarship foundations, allowing us to give approximately $125,000 annually to local and international organizations and award high school seniors college scholarships. 

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.
