AN OCCASIONAL NEWSLETTER
NOVEMBER 1, 2011
 
Newsletter
Rotary Club of Campbell
 
was saddened to read that Turkey had yet another earthquake.
 
It reminded me that Turkey Rotary Clubs coupled with us to provide computers for Rosemary School and that President Kit was instrumental in us coupling with several other Rotary Clubs both here and in Turkey to provide the rebuilding of a water system that had been destroyed in the earthquake of 1999 there. I decided to look into the this history.
 
There were two earthquakes separated by four months in 1999.
 
The region of the Izmit Quake was in north- western Turkey and happened in August, 1999.
 
It measured 7.4 and lasted 45 seconds.
 
The official death toll was 18,000, injured 44,000 and destroyed 300,000 homes.
 
It was followed by 1,300 aftershocks culminating in the second quake known as the Düzce Quake and rated 7.2.
 
This quake was felt in both Istanbul (northwest) and Ankara (a little more centrally located in the country).
 
This quake had far fewer casualties (less than 1,000) but affected 18,000 buildings.
 
This current earthquake happened in the Eastern part of Turkey near the border of Iran and was, I believe, thought to be another 7.2.
 
Turkey has the Northern Anatolian Fault that runs across the top of Turkey East to West, and the East Anatolian Fault, East to South, which I think is the fault for this quake.
 
I will let everyone know what Rotarians are planning for assisting this tragedy.
 
The Avenues of Service meeting was a success.
 
Our two red badgers enjoyed learning more about Rotary,seeing about 500 people from our District, and learning about some of the things that other clubs are doing for their communities.
 
The Downtown San Jose Club 
ʼ  
project is Adelante Project.
 
It works with 60 4 
th 
and 5 
th 
 graders at Washington School (95% Latino)doing leadership skills training.
 
The Sunnyvale Club has ASante 
ˊ   
which partners with 4-5 other clubs to have the ROTOCARE Clinic which was started by John Fisher (I sent out an email regarding a dinner honoring him to which we are all invited).
 
Oakland Reads is the project with Oakland Rotary in which all 3 
rd 
graders in Oakland received 3 books.
 
The Los Altos Club has the Partners for New Generations in which volunteers tutor and mentor youth in their area.
 
They help teachers, take children to lunch , are role models all being done one hour per week by volunteers in their club.
 
Their website is: www.phgmvla.org .
 
The Cupertino Club works with Rebuilding Together, a national program, in this area.
 
So many wonderful programs that our Rotary Family participates in.
 
Along with going to the President 
ʼ  
s workshop, I attended the Youth Protection Process.
 
Several of us are certified, yet because we are working so much more with the youth, starting an Interact Program,working as tutors with the Citizen 
ʼ  
s Schools, and more (I am not sure what at this point), I want to make sure that we are all in compliance with the requirements that Rotary has set out.
 
When I was at the assistant governor 
ʼ  
s meeting last week, the president of the Saratoga club was talking about a project that their club has started, the Handyman Project.
 
They are working with OSH and are starting a program in which volunteers are going out about twice a month to help, mostly seniors, to do small projects around the house.
 
St. Andrews Church is receiving the calls in the community, Saratoga, Los Gatos, Campbell.
 
I think this would be a wonderful inter-Rotary Club project and I asked if we could also work with them in our community.
 
Jim Morelan will be our Chair for this.
 
He has been in contact with Tom Sloan and will talk to our club about this worthwhile plan.Megan volunteered to be one of the adults that interfaced with the students at Citizen Schools.
 
She had a wonderful time and will tell us about her experience next week.
 
I sent out an announcement regarding the Cirque du Soliel TOTEM performance and I received lots of interest.
 
I will be passing around a list for sign-ups.
 
So, lots and lots of things are coming now and in the future, and as District Governor Arley Marley says: 
 
IF THIS DOESN 
ʼ  
T LIGHT YOUR FIRE, YOUR WOOD IS WET!! 
 
I sent out an announcement regarding the Cirque du Soliel TOTEM performance and I received lots of interest.
