Octoberfest a big success

Newsletter — Oct 23 2007Bill Ellington and his mighty band of volunteers manned a booth at downtown Campbell’s Octoberfest over the weekend. Thanks to pleasant weather and hardy work crews a good time was had by all. Early reports are that Saturday’s business was so good, we covered our expenses so all of Sunday’s sales should show up in the “profit� column.

At the October meeting of our Board of Directors, the Board decided to:

  • Donate $250 to the local RotarAct Group toward a “Giraffe bedâ€? for pre-mature infants.
  • December 8th as the Holiday Party date
  • Decided to increase the number of club assemblies starting in January
  • Decided to have a “Visioning Meetingâ€? for the club, with facilitators from the District, probably in January.

Ground Breaking in Turkey

In late March, the Rotary Club of Istanbul-Topkapi (Turkey) officially broke ground on the municipal water system, co-sponsored by RotaryCSJw and funded by The Rotary Foundation. The Rotary Club of Campbell & San Jose West has partnered with several Rotary clubs in District 2420 to install the system in the countryside near Istanbul.

They’ve recently provided us with a few pictures of the festivities. Keep in mind that Cecelia Babkirk will be leading a delegation to Turkey in July to view the completed project and to meet more of our Rotary partners.
