New Member Induction Ceremony

While her sponsor, Nick Leon looks on, President Marty Mandelberg welcomes Diane Truong as our club's newest member.
Wecome Diana!
 
Diana is the Deputy Director of Communications & Operations for Pacific Links Foundation. Pacific Links Foundation leads counter-trafficking efforts at the frontiers of Vietnam by increasing access to education, providing shelter and reintegration services, and enabling economic opportunities. The Rotary Club of San Jose East/Evergreen has partnered with Pacific Links in the fight against trafficking over the past three years and plans another project this year.
 
For the Rotary Club of San Jose East/Evergreen, serving youth is a major component of our outreach and projects. All club members must be up to date with the latest in Youth Protection. The update takes 3 hours on Sat. 8/14 and it's virtual (you can attend in slippers!) - ed.
 
 
Rotary Zones 26-27s Youth Services Taskforce is sponsoring a virtual conference with a goal to review some of the new requirements of Rotary's latest Youth Protection Guide. Whether you are a leader with Rotary Youth Exchange, RYLA or Interact, just a dedicated volunteer, there are aspects of Youth Protection you may need to know.  This conference will provide some valuable "how to" ideas on how you can best, and most easily, implement Rotary's new guidelines.

I am proud to serve as your San Jose East/Evergreen (SJE/E) Rotary Club President for 2021- 2022. While a Rotarian for just two years, I have been a Board Officer on profit and non-profit organizations for 30 years. My education has been in Engineering, Management, and Strategy with 50 years of service in government, private industry, and academia.
 
I have been called a creative optimist, and I wear that label proudly. Creativity and persistence can overcome many obstacles. To be a pessimist is to waste energy in non-productive efforts.
 
My education and work experience have helped my career and benefited my wonderful family. But just as important as accomplishments are aspirations.
 
Starting in July 2021, I plan to listen to each SJE/E club member and learn what characteristics they want their club to have now and in the future, and especially hear about their aspirations. I ask you to reflect on your aspirations and work with the other members to build our club to meet all members' goals. An energized club can attract proactive new members who wish to serve and have fun as we re-grow SJE/E.
 
My job is to serve all the members and use leadership, organizational, and mentoring knowledge. We all deserve ethical treatment, respect, accountability, transparency, and responsiveness. Comments and suggestions for improvements are crucial as we strive to be of practical service to others. With all of your active participation in Avenues of Service and Club projects, we can build on SJE/E's excellent reputation in District 5170 and become the Rotary Club we want to invest our time and energy. I offer a suggested goal motto: "The Best Small Rotary Club in California."
 
Thank you in advance for your thoughts, efforts, and continued support.
 
Yours in Rotary
Marty

Focus for July 2021

Rotary has identified a theme for each month except July. July is the first month of the Rotary year and is when the annual theme kicks in.

 

Mehta: serving others changes lives

 
Incoming RI President Shekhar Mehta, a member of the Rotary Club of Calcutta-Mahanagar, West Bengal, India, revealed the 2021-22 presidential theme, Serve to Change Lives, at this week’s virtual Rotary International Assembly. He urged district governors-elect to become more involved in service projects, saying that caring for and serving others is the best way to live because it changes not only other people’s lives, but also our own.
