"No intelligent human being is ever 100% clear about how to act, he/she always weighs it. Whatever we do, out very existence, our eating, living, and breathing is an injustice to some other life form, if you look at it from their point of view. If you eat, you kill, if you breathe, you kill, if you walk, you kill. So if you don't want to do all that and kill yourself, still you kill. No action in the world is 100% right or 100% wrong. You just have to consider the larger good that you create with your actions and perform them accordingly." -  "From an ancient Scripture"
 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 
SJEE Membership Chair Charlie Wasser gave a wonderful PowerPoint presentation at the club meet on Thursday August 20. The talk was on how we can work together on making our club more Attractive and Engaging to draw in and retain members. Charlie's talk was further reinforced at the District Membership Seminar held at the Embassy Suites on Saturday August 22. The Seminar was attended by President Robbie, Membership Chair Charlie, and Rtn. Suguna. The very lively and informative presentation by two PDG's from Southern California, Wade Nomura and Larry Sundaram, emphasized on "The New Focus".  They introduced some very basic and simple tools that Rotary leaders can adopt to attract and retain members at their respective clubs. 
 
President Robbie would like to set up a Membership Committee that would help evaluate our club policies, and initiate some action items to grow and sustain Membership. To learn more and actively participate, please review Charlie's slide show that was mailed to all members, and also visit www.zone2526.org > "Strengthen Clubs" > "Membership" > "Membership Resources".
 
Loved this from Rtn. Wade Nomura
"Does your club have the "Cheers" culture -
 
"Sometimes you want to go Where everybody knows you name,
And they're always glad you came;
You want to be where you can see,
Our troubles are all the same,
People are all the same...."
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
Kudos to Club Youth Service Director, Nick Leon, for last week’s program about the successful trip to Vietnam to deliver the Interact funded  2,400 “indestructable” soccer balls to orphans in various parts of the country.  The presentation was well received,  and the chocolate treat from Vietnam was delicious!
 
Bill  Bellou, CEO of The Evergreen Times,  was present to cover the story.
 
Kudos to President Robbie and Membership Chair Charlie Wasser for Volunteering to represent our club at the East San Jose Dumpster Day held by CouncilMember, Carrasco. Robbie and Charlie spent quite a few hours on a 100 degree Saturday to help clean up our Neighborhood. Thank You for your efforts and inspiring our Club Members to participate in events as such that our held plenty in our city.
 
 
 

 
 
Silence will save me from being wrong (and foolish), but it will also deprive me of the possibility of being right.
