Newsletter Mar 31 2009

M A R C H 3 1 , 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 Rotarians @ Work day z Join your fellow Rotarians around the world on Saturday, April 25 to pitch in to make the world a better place. Every Rotary Club in the world is planning a local activity on this day. We will be lead by Neil Jacobson on a project in the City of Campbell. Polio Immunization Day Participate in National Immunization Days to Eradicate Polio and Attend the District 9120 Rotary Conference 02 May – Depart U.S. 12 May – Return to U.S. The fight against polio is in its last phase, and the challenge to eradicate the disease has become much more tactical. Now there are only a few weeks between the time a government establishes the date of a National Immunization Day and the date itself. If you have ever wanted to participate in a polio eradication trip, this is the trip and NOW is the time. As a result, we expect that this might be one of the last chances you have to join a group program to eradicate polio. In addition to spending three days engaged in the polio eradication effort, we will enjoy the unique experience of attending the District 9120 Rotary Conference in Zaira. To register for the trip, please complete the application and send it to our office ASAP. Due to the short lead time of this program, full payment of the ground portion of the trip is required to join the trip. You can pay by check, or credit card (Visa or MasterCard). Please MAKE SURE to note your originating airport on the application. Upon our receipt of your application, we will then prepare your flight itinerary and contact you to confirm your acceptance of the itinerary if you need to purchase connecting flights to join the group in Detroit. This is an extraordinary opportunity for you to be a part of the eradication of polio. We hope you, or members of your club can join us. NOW is the time you should take action if you plan to have this experience. Campbell’s C of C Honors Bill Highley!

Each Past President in attendance was given the ?oor for an impromptu speech about the most memorable events of their presidency. Regina Reynolds, who is a Past President from the Apr. 15: District Tennis Tournament Apr. 17-19: District Celebration Rotary Club of Keane, New Hampshire started off the orations with a memory of an exchange person from Africa who defected to the U.S. while on her Rotary visit. We then heard of the highlights of the last 40+ years with stories from Dick Garland (1966-67), Marv Bamburg (73-74), Jerry Scott (74-75), Bill Ellington (86-87), Phil Nielsen (93-94), Jerry Cummings (94-95, 07-08), Paul Bacosa (96-97), and Kit Whitney (04-05). Ask Marv about sitting on ice or Bill Ellington about the location of the RI Convention to relive some of the highlights. ????????
