ImageSharon Tennison, president and founder of the Center for Citizen Initiatives (CCI), will address our club on July 23rd.

Sharon took the idea of "citizen diplomacy" to the USSR in 1983 to try to create a bridge of sanity between the 50,000 nuclear weapons which the US and the USSR had pointed at each other.  

In 1989 CCI began training Soviet entrepreneurs in start-up business skills. Four more business programs ensued over the years including the PEP program, based on the Marshall Plan's Productivity Tours, which was the largest business management training program between the two countries.  Cupertino Rotary participated in this program several times.  

Sharron attended a recent book club meeting and was a hit. You don't want to miss her amazing experiences and insights on Russia.

Richard Lowenthal, along with President Hung Wei, encouraged the club to help bring in another $200,000 for the Permanent Fund so that we can all get to the $1 million goal by 2015. Marj Mancuso has pledged to match new donations made to the Fund, up to $10,000. Thank you, Marj!
