We are honored to have PDG Brad Howard as the guest speaker to kick off the 2014 The Rotary Foundation campaign. Brad has been nominated t service on the Rotary International Board of Directors for the 2015-17 term, representing Zones 25 and 26. Brad, a charter member of the Rotary Club of Oakland Sunrise, was a past governor of District 5170. Although he enjoyed many club and District assignments, his work in training, international service and the Rotary Foundation has provided the most rewarding experiences for him.

We met this past Monday and discussed the book “The Garden of the Evening Mists” by Tan Twang Eng.  Our Moderator was Judy Wilson. Great discussion of the book.  We agreed it was well written, not too interesting for the first third of the book and then picked up steam.  Intriguing mystery involving WWII atrocities, post war civil war in Malaysia, plunder, and espionage.  Unfortunately, we never quite figured out the mystery.  You sort of get to invent your own ending depending on how you feel about the main characters.

Our October book is another Kinzer book - “Reset” by Stephen Kinzer.  Should provide good discussion on the history and politics of both Turkey and Iran.  Very timely book.  Lee McCrumb will be our moderator.  The meeting will be October 27th, a Monday, at 7 pm at the YMCA. Come and join us, even if you don't read the book, the discussions are always fun.

Having visited many of our club's  projects in China, we expect our Fellow Rotarians to be back in Cupertino this Sunday.  However, a contingent of WCS fellows are wandering in the Gobi Desert looking for shelter and food (maybe a burger?)  If you receive an SOS from PDG Jim Walker or Group Leader Steve Ting,  Please report immediately to the authorities - we want to make sure that they arrive home safely for next week's meeting.

Just frequent the vendors that are supporting the program and they will donate a portion of their sales to our local schools. Click here to get a list of vendors.

By-Law changes and board nominations
PP Bev Lenihan took a vote of the members to pass changes to our  by-laws allowing a one-time extension of terms where the nominating committee felt it was necessary. The members passed. Bev then introduced the slate of board members to be voted on at our next meeting:
President Elect- Wendell Stephens  CFO (extended 1 year) Tom Hall  Board member 1 year: John Zirelli, Board member 3 year term- Padma Chari and Rod Sinks.  Thanks to our nominating committee consistent of PP's Steve Ting, Larry Dean, Liz Gallegos, Bev Lenihan, Hsing Kung, Savita Vaidhyanathan, President Hung Wei and President Elect Suzy Blackman.

PE Suzy Blackman told us about the upcoming D5170 project fair on 10/15. A great opportunity to see what other clubs are doing, and brag about what we do, as well as have a free dinner and mingle with lots of Rotarians. Contact Suzy to sign up to attend.
