Announcements of upcoming events:

Henry Buffalow announced that  Rebuild Together would be making repairs to the interior and exterior of the house of an elderly Cupertino couple.  Work shifts are from 8:00-1:00, 12:30-5:00, and all day 8:00-5:00.  All shifts include a pizza lunch.  Contact Henry, Jayne Ham, or Barbara McArthur with questions or register on-line at

Colleen Hudgen announced a pumpkin carving event at Live Oak Senior Center on October 31st.  No special skill is required, and there will be an ice cream social afterward.  You can sign up on Clubrunner.

Leslie Hay reminded members that they are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes for the October 29 meeting.  There will be prizes for best costume in several categories.

Cecilia Babkirk introduced Win Lu who talked about three TRF funded projects in District 3500 in Taiwan.  He described a library renewal project at a school with disadvantaged students, a postpartum health education project for overseas brides, and a set of services to help people get on their feet with a van to distribute donated food, farm equipment for growing food, and a kitchen for preparing food.  Win emphasized the ongoing impact of these projects.

Before fellowship, members got to watch a video by Diana Ding showing the festivities at the previous week’s Norwegian Night complete with audience participation in Norwegian dancing.


PP Liz Gallegos gave an update on the TRF campaign.  The club is currently at 30% participation with a goal of 100% and has raised $31,000 toward the goal of $60,000.

PP Cecelia Babkirk then talked about how the club leverages its dollars to fund projects at a level that is many times the club’s direct monetary contribution.  She explained that of the dollars club members contribute to TRF half will be returned in 2017 as DDF and half stays with TRF for matching grants.  She gave examples of how the club was able to combine its own DDF funds and cash with DDF funds and cash from other clubs plus TRF matching to achieve as much as 13:1 leverage of local money.

ImageWednesday, November 12th, Dr. Stephanie Allen Lutz will present a seminar on Estate Planning from 1:45-3pm in the Social Room. There is no charge, and refreshments will be served.

Both medical and financial areas of estate planning will be covered. In the medical arena, Dr. Lutz will cover Advanced Health Care Directive (AHCD) and Physician’s Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST), planning for a good dying process within the broader arena of what Estate Planning is—that is, the main pieces of AHCD, Powers of Attorney for Finance & Health Care, Wills and Trusts.  

She has an informative chart that shows the broader rubric of Estate Planning and how all these legal documents fit in the picture. Dr. Allen is a California Licensed Professional Fiduciary. 

 It is never to early—nor too late—to be informed or reminded of these tools that cultivate the garden of a ‘life well lived.’ Please join us. Invite family and friends.
