“Sky Guardians" is a compelling story of local military history and the community that lived and worked at the USAF Radar Station on Mt. Umunhum. Basim Jaber, our speaker, is a lifelong South Bay native and freelance photographer, who has researched the history and geography of Mt. Umunhum and the Almaden Air Force Station since 2006.

He has organized and hosted several veterans' reunions for the USAF 682nd Radar Squadron who manned the radar station atop Mt. Umunhum between 1957 and 1980.  He continues to archive historic images and artifacts from Almaden Air Force Station to help preserve the memories and history of this Bay Area Cold War relic.

Bill was recently inspired himself, by a recent high school graduate. He shared her story of being an immigrant and taking the long road to complete her education. But the message was that there is no timeline to success, there is no expiration date, one can always achieve success at any age regardless of the timeline.

Courtney and Vidushi shared with Rotary their experience at this year’s Tech Trek. Both ladies really enjoyed dorm life and were inspired to explore into different fields of science.

Member pictureBeing one of the club's "experienced" Rotarians, I've had a chance to see Cupertino Rotary grown size, strength, influence and diversity. Over the past 36 years I've seen a great change for the better in all areas of Rotary service.  I intend to keep my oar in the water and continue to keep our programs and projects moving in the right direction.  This is a great time to make sure the club remains a leader well into the future.  Our gifts to the CREF Endowment will help insure that Cupertino Rotary's future is bright.  I've made my gift to the CREF Permanent Fund.  I hope you will join me by making your pledge or gift too!

Connie Martinez, CEO of Silicon Valley Creates came to share with us her team’s collaboration with Valley Medical Center. With the new Women’s Health and Children Service wing, Valley Medical Center has asked Silicon Valley Creates to help integrate the arts into the structure of the building to enhance the experience for the patients and visitors. Connie shared several photos of hospitals around the US that have used art to create warm relaxing space for women, children, and their families.

If you would like to be on Hung Wei's Weekly Agenda please contact  Jerra Rowland by the Sunday night before the meeting. Please email her at jerra95030@mac.com
If you would like to include slides as part of your announcement, please send them to Jerra Rowland well in advance of the meeting, at least 3 to 4 days, and she will be able to include your info in the flow of the meeting  when you are at the microphone for your one minute of fame. This is particularly important for club chairs who want to announce meetings, accomplishments, or details that are better covered with more than a one minute verbal overview. Send Jerra bullet points and she will do the rest.
