Continuing with RotaryCSJw’s volunteer and philanthropic work with EMQ Children & Family Services, club members are invited to participate in a special project at EMQ’s Los Gatos facility:
EMQâ€™s Childrenâ€™s Garden Project
November 7th, 2007 from 4-6 pm.
EMQ Los Gatos Campus, 499 Loma Alta Avenue.
Help finish installation of a sustainable garden for EMQâ€™s residential children. Creating a garden will not only be fun and educational for the children, but will have therapeutic benefits as well.
Come help plant winter vegetables and make mosaic stepping stones with EMQâ€™s children or donate materials needed to the project. Continue reading Garden Project at EMQ
On October 30, please join us early for this fascinating program …
Juvenile Court Judge Katherine Lucero will speak to our club on Tuesday, October 30. Judge Lucero is the Juvenile Court Judge supporting Family Court, and will discuss how the Court tries to keep the children in their home, even though 80% of such court cases are the result of alcohol or drug abuse.
Judge Lucero would like to speak at the beginning of the meeting, rather than after the club business as she has to return to court. All RotaryCSJw members are asked to arrive early to sit for lunch in time for the program to start at 12:30!
Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 24 … George and Ginny Miskulin will be joining us, so bring a smile and your favorite story about George who has over 50 years of Rotary experience!
