At an emergency meeting of the board of directors on September 27, 2018, it was agreed to leave The Ranch Golf Club, which was charging $502.50/week and causing the club's finances to go "in the red" about $1200/month. The decision was difficult for many as the site had great views and a pleasant private room. Several attempts at renegotiating for a lower cost met with inflexibility.
 
After researching several alternatives, it was decided to relocate to The Drying Shed Restaurant where Director of Catering, Edward Ramsey welcomed us "back." Our club had met there years ago.
We will order off the lunch menu and the total bill will be paid by our Treasurer. We will keep the cost of lunches at $20 for the time being until we see if that amount covers lunches as well as tax and tip.
 
For our Oct. 11 meeting we will not engage a guest speaker. This meeting will be to acquaint ourselves with the location and get used to ordering from the menu. Mr. Ramsey has requested that I give him an estimate of how many of us to expect the day before, so I'll be asking for an email response from all those planning to attend.

“For the first time in its 52-year history the Rotary Club of San Jose East/Evergreen is focused on creating an annual self-driving race car (SDRC) competition for high school students.

Championed by president-elect Harbinder Sikka, our club brought cutting-edge autonomous vehicle high technology to students in the East Side Union High School District (ESUHSD). The majority of ESUHSD students belong to an economically disadvantaged family and represent demographics under-represented in the technology workforce. This initiative will provide exposure to career options in high technology. Students will utilize this new technology in a fun and engaging manner through a self-driving race car competition.
 
Our club, with funding assistance from the San Jose East Endowment Fund, donated six SDRC kits to Silver Creek High School. Through the diligent efforts of Harbinder Sikka and our past president, Nick Leon and Silver Creek High School advisor Mr. Imani Butler, the Silver Creek SDRC club had 24 students sign-up within the first two weeks. The club meets every Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. President-Elect Harbinder Sikka will be meeting with Mount Pleasant High School’s club advisors to set up a second club next week.”

RI President-elect Barry Rassin’s theme for 2018-19, Be the Inspiration, asks Rotarians to inspire change in the world and in each other. “I ask all of you to Be the Inspiration to help Rotary move from reaction to action — to take a hard look at the environmental issues that affect health and welfare around the world and do what we can to help.”
