Moving Ahead with a Plan!

On Thursday, November 15 we will have a Club Assembly to view the results of our club's District 570's Visioning exercise capably led by Greg Bogdanoff, Arley Marley and Linda Price.
Ten club members met with the District team for almost four hours on Saturday morning, October 27 and brain-stormed ideas for a vision of how our club will look in five years. Greg, Aarley and Linda worked as our scribes and helped us narrow the focus of the scores of ideas we came up with, to those that were the most meaningful for the majority of us. 
Come and share in the Vision - the next steps will start with the development of a Strategic Plan led by P Sara Calkins, PE Harbinder Sikka and PP Robbie Izat. Richard Dorsay has agreed to Champion the process and make sure we get on and stay on track!
Next week our meeting will be on Monday, November 19. We'll be at the Family Learning Center at Foothill High School filling bags with turkeys and "all the fixin's". These meal components are given to student parents that are completing requirements for high school graduation; given to show them that we respect and support their determination to succeed.

Foothill's Mission Statement

To provide a safe and caring environment where students achieve the academic, personal and social development required to continue learning, pursue post-secondary education, compete in a dynamic job market, and participate in a diverse, democratic society.
  • Come to participate in our first Youth Service Project this year
  • Come around 10am to help fill bags
  • Come around noon for lunch and an opportunity to meet these wonderful students
  • Come to send our members off with Happy Thanksgiving wishes (club will be dark on the day)

“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 adviser 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 advisers 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.”
