Tom Hall

Tom grew up on a farm in Colorado and moved to the town of Delta, Colorado in third grade.  He met his wife there and literally married the girl next door.  He and his wife moved to southern California starting work in construction.  He then enrolled in CSU Northridge and after graduating went to work for KPMG.  He and his family then moved to the bay area where he took a job as an executive at a small savings and loan.  He soon decided to strike out on his own and purchased an accounting practice.  With his wife working by his side they grew the business, adding employees in the ensuing years.  His company received a Small Business of the Year award.  In 2005 he sold the company to fellow Rotarian Ed Grant.  He and the girl next door have now celebrated 51 years of marriage and reside in Saratoga where they continue to manage some real estate and enjoy time with the younger generations.



The program was the annual high school student speech program organized by Cathy Tam.  Three contestants gave five minute speeches related to the theme Light up Rotary and incorporating at least one element of the four way test.  The participants – Diana Kruzman of Cupertino High School, Amita Mahajan of Monta Vista High School, and Avanti Mehrota  of Lynbrook High School – all delivered outstanding speeches that were inspirational and thought provoking.  The winner, Diana Kruzman, will go on to compete in the Area Level contest for a spot in the District Level contest that will be held at the District Conference.

Posted by Pallavi Shah on Jan 18, 2015

In 1996, Cupertino Rotary held its first Crab Feed with proceeds to benefit the youth of our community. Thanks to the generous facility hosting provided by our partner St. Joseph's of Cupertino, we have established the Crab Feed as a recognized annual community event that provides charitable funds for Youth Services.
This year's "All You Can Eat" Crab Feed will be held Friday night, February 13 at St. Josephs on N. De Anza Blvd.
Vegetarians who prefer to skip the crab, enjoy especially prepared pasta along with green salad, French bread and ice cream. While not usually considered a "kid's event", we welcome families and kids eat free. We start serving around 5:15 PM, begin our raffle drawing at 7:15 PM, and are usually out the door well before 9:00 PM.

Members can participate by purchasing tickets for yourself and your guests at $45 each, by selling tickets to friends and associates, by purchasing tickets for the many sponsored drawing prizes, or simply signing up for a shift and partnering with our Interact co-hosts to set-up, serve, or cleanup.


See you at Cupertino Rotary's 20th Annual Rotary Crab Feed!
