On Saturday, April 30, a group of intrepid adventurers met in the parking lot at EMQ/FF for a funfilled “Mystery Trip.” The travelers were told only to bring comfortable shoes, as there may be (con’t

walking involved. Not much to go on, but with the event having been planned by veteran social event planner, Kit Whitney, Rotarians knew they would be heading for fun. ! The bus arrived and soon our thrill seekers were on board and heading North on highway 280. The bus exited the road and headed for the beautiful mansion and gardens on the peninsula, Filoli. Psych! No, not Filoli. The bus continued North to the China Basin area in San Francisco. AT&T Park, home of the World Champion SF Giants! Yes? ... No.

Marj Bonsall Celebrated as Campbell’s “Unsung Hero.”

Busy Weekend for Rotarians
District 5170 held it’s annual Celebration at the Santa Clara Marriott over the last weekend. The Charis, Davises, Crowleys, Highleys, and several other Campbell Rotarians attended various sessions of this annual gala event. (Ed. note: Sorry, but had no info on the details of the event by press time.)
!

Long time and pioneering Rotarian, Marj Bonsall was honored at a recent meeting as our club’s first ever “Unsung Heroes.” Being among the “first” is nothing new to Marj. She was one of the first female members of District 5170 back in the 1980s when IR, at long last, welcomed women into the fold. Marj was also the second female club ! Our final and real destination President when she took the helm of the was Pier 3 to board the beautiful “Santa club in 1989. Not only has Marj been a Rosa” for a wonderful Champagne Brunch and glorious views of “Bagdad by consistent contributor to all things Rotary over the years, she also was the the Bay.” Chairperson for the District Speech Contest, traveling to more than thirty clubs to promote the contest. She also took part in numerous local vocational fairs, inspiring young people. ! On hand to present the award to Marj, was none other than District 5170 Governor, Roger Hassler (in photo above). ! Marj can be counted on to be at all of our fundraising street fairs doing whatever needs to be done to boost our sales and bring a level of fun to all she does. At last year’s signature event, Marj and Judy Armstrong were the “stars of the show” as they entertained the crowd and pumped up the bids on all of our auction items.

! Also on Saturday, Jerry Cummings represented our club at the City of Campbell’s Great American Litter Pick Up Day at John D. Morgan Park. This was a community wide effort to help clean up around Campbell parks, freeway exits and railroad tracks. Jerry was joined by other civic groups and hoards of high school student volunteers. Thanks for being there, Jerry! ! Another community service opportunity last Saturday was taken advantage by other members of our club (John Shannon, Emilie Highley, Chris Young and Mike Anderson pictured above) were on hand to help out at the Willow Glen 5K Run/Walk. Cheering on the more than 2,000 runners and walkers, our members also cheered them on to complete the 3.1 mile course. Proceeds of the days run will go to help out Willow Glen Elementary School and other educational affiliates in the area.

! Entertainment on the bus included trivia questions on the ‘60s along with jokes provided by our hostess and other volunteers. ! The weather cooperated to make it a perfect outing. Thank you, Kit, for a great outing!
