Octoberfest a big success

Newsletter — Oct 23 2007Bill Ellington and his mighty band of volunteers manned a booth at downtown Campbell’s Octoberfest over the weekend. Thanks to pleasant weather and hardy work crews a good time was had by all. Early reports are that Saturday’s business was so good, we covered our expenses so all of Sunday’s sales should show up in the “profit� column.

October Board Meeting

At the October meeting of our Board of Directors, the Board decided to:

  • Donate $250 to the local RotarAct Group toward a “Giraffe bedâ€? for pre-mature infants.
  • December 8th as the Holiday Party date
  • Decided to increase the number of club assemblies starting in January
  • Decided to have a “Visioning Meetingâ€? for the club, with facilitators from the District, probably in January.

You can also print out the complete October 23 Newsletter in PDF.
But be careful … it’s a really, really big file. If you are looking for a more recent Newsletter, every RotaryCSJw Newsletter is now online.

Juvenile Court Judge Katherine Lucero

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!
