Everything Old is New Again?
The club previously known as RotaryCSJw has been discussing/considering dropping the “San Jose West” from our club name and being just the Rotary Club of Campbell.
The reason for the change is to better identify us as the club of the City of Campbell; of course there would be no change in the area from which we can draw members.
President Jerry Cummings would like to get a consensus from the members on Tuesday, March 25. If you are not going to be at the meeting and feel strongly that we should not make the change, please contact Jerry.

Here’s an event you won’t want to miss … RotaryCSJw presents dinner at Eulipia at 6:00, followed by a City Lights Theater Company performance of Lysistrata. $55 per person, spouses and guests welcome.
What would it take to put an end to war? How about an end to sex? Aristophanes’ classic comedy comes to life in a brand-new, fast-paced and bawdy adaptation commissioned especially for City Lights’ 25th Anniversary. In this hilarious battle of the sexes, men and women in compromising political positions duel it out before a side-splitting reconciliation between ages and genders.
Contact Marv Bamburg to sign-up. Deadline is March 17!
RotaryCSJw hosted the District 5170 Area 8 speech contest at our luncheon today.
Our winner was Janhavi Athavale from Monte Vista High School (also from the Cupertino Rotary Club). She reminded us that “All we really needed to know we learned in Kindergarten.”
Thank you to all who volunteered their services to make it run so well. Delbar Jahanian and Sue Klear did a fabulous job of greeting. Carl Middione, Bill Highley, Ravi Chari and Jim Morlena had a very difficult job as judges, but they all rose to the task. Thanks again to Jerry Scott for timing and to Neil and Marc for doing the big math with me standing over them.
The next step is the Regional at the Los Gatos Morning Rotary Club on April 2. It would be great to have some of us there to cheer on the students.
In addition, Paul Pinza (the speech teacher from Westmont High School) has invited us to participate as volunteers in a regional contest later this Spring. Continue reading Area 8 Speech Contest
