Meeting Notes from Oct 16, 2018


Meeting was called to order by President Andrew. Mike F. led us in the Pledge. John P. introduced two guests: Marjorie B. and Diane P. There were no visiting Rotarians and no guests of members. Ron S. inspired us with a quote by Winston Churchill “Attitude is a little thing that can make a big difference.” He also amused us with a story about decisions and experience. Andrew reminded the Inspiration Committee to let Ron know when they want to take a month to inspire us.

We were reminded about Rebuilding Together which is Oct. 27.


Reminder about getting diapers to Patti for Sunday Friends. 
  • Diapers in every size – especially sizes 3 & 4
  • Wipes are also greatly appreciated!

There is a board meeting this Thursday, 10/18 at 4:30. Reminder to Red Badges; they are invited to attend.

Lisa told us there is a pilot project at the Fisher House. We will be serving dinner 10/26 at 4:30. She has people to help her with the meal, but she would like volunteers to serve and share a meal with the families. For more information, click here

Meeting Notes from Oct 9, 2018

Myron S. led the pledge of allegiance.



First Thursday last week at Number One Broadway was a success! 24 people showed up to this event.

The LGHS Robotics team, 972 Iron Claw, came & gave an overview of the Robotics program. They earned a Regional Championship in SF during the 2018 season & attended the World Championships in Houston. They also participated in their first Robotics Competition. It took them 6 weeks to build a 120lb robot, learn & apply stem skills as well as develop real world skills, such as teamwork.

Don Mcleave & his guest Beverly (his wife) celebrated 60 years of marriage and gave a $100 gift towards the scholarship fund.

Bring Diapers or check payable to Sunday Friends for the next 3 club meetings. Can't make it to a meeting? Contact Patti and she will come to you to pick up diapers or a donation.  
  • Diapers in every size – especially sizes 3 & 4
  • Wipes are also greatly appreciated!

Saturday Oct. 27th - Rotary Rebuilding Together Project

Sign-ups close on October 6th so make sure you sign up before it's too late. Working with Rebuilding Together is one way we create safe and healthy homes and communities for our neighbors in need.

Come volunteer with us and be a part of this incredible experience! Most of our jobs that day require no skill or experience.  But, we could use volunteers with some light electrical and or light carpentry.  Invite family and Friends: All volunteers are welcome.  See our Events calendar for location and full details.

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.
