TRF Fondue Set

Speaking of Rotary fundraising Auctions … 😉

At today’s meeting, John Shannon outbid Bill Ellington for the rights to open the District Governor’s mystery gift presented to the club back in September.

It turned out to be top-of-the-line All-Clad Fondue Set, which John certainly appreciated. Special thanks to visiting Rotarian Rob Slawinski from the Rotary Club of Scotts Valley! Rob parlayed his professional expertise as an auctioneer into a hefty donation to The Rotary Foundation! Thanks, Rob … Thanks, John!

Collecting Books for Women Inmates

Donations accepted through January 2, 2008.

Bettina Kohlbrenner is leading a “Book Collection” effort on behalf of the Commission on the Status of Women, as a collaborative between Cisco, Foothill Collage, EMQ and a few other community members.

The Commission for the Status of Women (CSW) and EMQ’s First 5 Program is supporting a holiday book drive for women in our jails, many of them mothers of young children. They are in need of books for education and entertainment.

The coalition is collecting need easy-to-read books on the following topics:

  • recovery and self-help
  • women’s health
  • prenatal care, parenting
  • romance novels, fiction and non-fiction

In the spirit of the holiday season, please drop off new or almost new paperback books (in good condition) at 251 Llewellyn Ave (at the reception) in Campbell or at my office or home.

Generosity Abounds!
