The Save the date for a special dinner event honoring our own Paul Harris awardees scheduled for Saturday, June 6. Our club is honored to have a high percentage of its members who have quali?ed for this great Rotary honor. Come enjoy the festivities! Smaller Crowds Boogie on the Bayou The crowds came back, endured the heat, enjoyed the music and ate up the corn and hot dogs at this past weekend’s Boogie on the Bayou. Well, that’s the story we were hoping to write, anyway. Nonetheless, the annual event, sponsored by the Campbell Chamber of Commerce, drew a crowd of festival goers eager to have some fun close to home. “Captain” Bill Ellington and his crew of hard working event will be held at the Campbell Community Center starting on July 11 and continue for 24 hours to the morning of July 12. Members are encouraged to join the team and gain some sponsors to help in the ?ght against cancer. ??????????? Rotarians did all they could to make sure the hot dogs, sausages, and fresh roasted corn were delicious and hot and the water and lemonade delicious and cold. The weather was hot, hot, hot, but sales were a little less so. Even so, our team of volunteers were able to make the sales that we needed to in order to make a pro?t on the weekend. Our club’s proceeds will be used to meet the needs of our projects in the coming year under President Rick Davis.

Today’s speaker, Tabitha Kappeler-Hurley presented a great program that Santa Clara Unified School District provides for some of its middle and high school girls. GAINS, Girls Achieving In Non-traditional Subjects. GAINS exposes girls to successful professional women in careers in such fields as Engineering, construction, technology, and other fields traditionally populated by men. It was a great presentation about a very innovative and successful program.
