Rotarians, their children, partners, and friends joined us. Along with students from Los Gatos High and Leigh school Interact Clubs to package 10,000 meals that will be shipped to Asia and help feed people with compromised immune systems.  Over 80 of us made quick work of this fun morning.  Thank you to Rise Against Hunger for your effort in ending world hunger by 2030!

New member Rachelle Lopp led the pledge and introduced guests. Gordon Levin introduced Teresa and Victor, potential new members that attended 1st Thursday at his house. Nicholas Welzenbach introduced Dell Gilliam, who is checking out our club.
 
Dan Snyder led inspiration by noting the timing is good to help our Rise Against Hunger project this Saturday, given all the need in the world this week caused by Hurricane Dorian. He read some funny and thoughtful quotes by Presidents, including from Regan as he was wheeled into surgery “I hope you’re all Republicans”.

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.
