We had a great lively 'Lunch and Learn' meeting today as we inducted four new members and recognized two PHF+4 members.
Thanks to all the members who came out to support our new members!
 
On every second Saturday, our Rotary Club of San Jose East Evergreen does a service project. On the heels of a successful back-to-school backpack drive in July, we served breakfast on Saturday, August 10th, 2019 to those in need at LifeMoves. Through the club, we always strive to give back to our communities and to give business to our local stores. Photo Credit - Arpita Sikka (Community Service Chair)

Kudos to community service chair Arpita Sikka for a very successful 'Back to School Backpack' drive for kindergarten and 1st-grade students. Our club members came together on Saturday, July 13th, 2019 to pack the contents into the 48 animal printed backpacks. Each backpack was stuffed with pencil box containing 12 pencils, eraser, and sharpener. It also contains a glue stick, a box of 10 crayons, and 10 washable markers. Also packed was a folder a set of 50 construction papers.
Our club logo was placed on the backpack to make sure the club name is recognized as the source of the backpacks.
 
The backpacks were donated to 'Family Giving Tree' for distribution to schools in San Jose.
This year our Rotary Club of San Jose East/Evergreen were the 'Freedom Sponsor' of the 'Rose, White, and Blue Parade' in San Jose, CA. As part of this sponsorship, our logo was displayed on their website as a Sponsor. We were given a car to ride in the VIP section of the parade. Past President Robbie, Secretary Manjeet, and Community Service Director Arpita rode the car in the VIP section waving and cheering the crowd. President Harbinder walked along District 5170 Area 5 interactors passing along the route 'Rotary SJEE' flyers to the San Jose residents who lined up on both sides of the road along the parade route. It was a great success in all measure and both Past President Robbie, as well as President Harbinder, got time on the live coverage to talk about the club for a minute. Also from the stage, the announcer talked about our Rotary Club of San Jose East/Evergreen while we walked past the stage in the middle of the parade route. It gave us quite a bit of publicity and visibility in the community. Our members Dave Cortese, and Kensan Chu also ride cars in the VIP section on their own as a community leader.
Here are some of the photographs:
