Upcoming Los Gatos Events

Frequent Guest Mike Hyman visited our club today, and invited each of us to participate in the summer and fall events sponsored by the Los Gatos Morning Rotary Club, including the Jazz in the Plazz (Wednesday evenings this summer) and Claws for a Cause (September 9).

Giving blood is safe, quick and easy. The entire process only takes about an hour and a single blood donation can help save more than one life. We have some great information to help you know what to expect when you give for the first time.

What To Expect When Giving Blood

General Eligibility Requirements: Blood donors must be in general good health, weigh at least 110 pounds, and must not have donated blood in the last 56 days. In general donors must be at least 17 years old, but this requirement varies from state to state. Check with your blood drive coordinator.

Brand New Website … ?

Actually, it’s not a completely new website …. it’s more of redesign of the old one.

Following the new 2006-07 Rotary International theme (“Lead the Way”), we’ve redesigned the RotaryCSJw website. In addition to its more-modern design, it’s supposed to be easier for members to navigate and find the information they need. Plus, the new header section will always include current “Hot Links” for any new or important information.

The left-hand column now contains all of the navigational and informational links, including major events and our basic club calendar. Introductions, explanations and historical pages are kept under the “What is Rotary?” and “What is RotaryCSJw?” pages. Club Rosters, complete event calendars, and communication tools are available in the Club Member Resources section.

Family Day @ the A’s

A message from Derek Fujikawa (Club President):

Dear Rotarians,

Each year, the A’s baseball organization sets aside a block of tickets for sale at a special price to the Rotarians in our district. Of the tickets sold, $6 per ticket is donated for scholarships to Camp RYLA. In past years, our members have purchased tickets and contributed whatever tickets we did not use to Eastfield Ming Quong, which sends a bus of their students and chaperones to the game. This is a worthwhile event for us because it benefits both our luncheon host directly and the students that attend RYLA indirectly.

This year, the game is a lot earlier than usual – Saturday, July 29, actually. Continue reading Family Day @ the A’s

Membership Training, too

In addition to the annual training for The Rotary Foundation, District 5170 also hosts a summer training event related to Membership, on July 18 and July 20. For more information, review the event brochure.
