A U G U S T 1 8 , 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 CHARTERED FEB., 1948 z Every Rotarian, Every Year z We are happy to inform you that the next edition of the Every Rotarian, Every Year newsletter is now available on-line. The newsletter is your source for news about the monumental EREY effort uniting our international membership. It provides updates on the Annual Programs Fund, features on what Rotarians are doing to meet their club goals and stories illustrating how APF contributions enhance people’s lives. GM: America’s “New” Car Company Susan Keenehan, Zone Manager for Chevrolet gave an inspired presentation to the club on August 11. Beginning by thanking us all, as taxpayers, for the helpful loan to General Motors, Ms. Keenehan promised that GM will pay back “every penny” with interest. Then, looking to the future, she told us that GM is moving from a “gas friendly” company to a “gas-free” company over the next several years. Noting that GM has cut the number of it’s brands in half, and their “nameplates” or models from 50 to 34. Ms. Keenehan also noted that GM cars are making technological advances. The Cadillac CTS 2008 model, for example was Motor Trend’s “Car of the Year.” We also learned that GM is a global company with markets far beyond the U.S. Buick, for instance, is the number one selling automobile in China. The big news was the “greening” of the American Auto Industry. The Chevy Volt will launch in 2010 and is expected to work within a 40 mile range on absolutely no gas. For longer drives, a small engine will recharge it’s battery to help achieve 230 miles per gallon!! For more information log onto “Signature event” set for april 17! The Steering Committee has set April 17, 2010 as the date for our 1st Annual special event to raise money for local children and to help combat Polio around the world. Details will be worked out, but plans include a car show, music, food, dancing, and photos, all reminiscent of a high school prom! ???????????
