J A N U A R Y 2 7 , 2 0 0 9 CAMPBELL Rotary W W W . C A M P B E L L R O T A R Y. O R G z Two weeks from today, February 10, our club will host our student speech contest here at EMQ during our regular meeting time. Members are encouraged to arrive a bit early so we can have plenty of time for our guest speakers. This year’s theme is “Rotary Pride, Make Dreams Real.” Club Speech Contest z Come Join our Board Tips on Finding a Good Speaker Our club is somewhat unique in that we all contribute to ?nding speakers for the program portion of our weekly meetings. It’s worth reminding everyone what makes for a good program. We are looking for presenters who have an interesting, timely and/or entertaining presentation to make, like Randy Hanh, above. We want to avoid one that is a blatant pitch for their products or services. Our goal is to inform and entertain and not just to be sold. ????? Next Monday, February 2 at 5:30, our club’s Board of Directors will meet at Emil Villa’s Hickory Pit. The “Pit” is located on Campbell Ave. just West of Bascom Ave across from The Prune Yard. But what goes on at Board meetings, anyway? We share information about what the various committees are working on. We discuss requests for funds that come from various people and organizations and ?nally decide which projects we will support. Feb. 10: Club Speech Contest Feb. 28: Club Social: Past Presidents Mar. 13-15: “Our Town” @ Campbell Heritage Theater Apr. 17-19: District Celebration @ Santa Clara Marriott This month’s agenda includes a mid year revision of our annual club budget, our monthly Treasurer’s report, the Miskulin Scholarship, progress on our international “digital villages” project, and potential new projects with the West Valley Community Services Organization. All members are welcome to attend Board meetings. Please let John know if you can join us so we can make the proper arrangements. Come join us!
