We had a very successful year serving our Castro Valley Area community in 2015. We ran or participated in an event in just about every month of the year. We also added special projects like renovating the local Adobe Art Center that made a material impact on improving our community. We invite you to join us in our ongoing mission to make Castro Valley one of the best places to live in the Bay Area.
We had a rockin’ and rollin’ series of speakers for our five September lunches, thanks to the hard work of September Speaker Chair Gary Bosley! Click through for a summary of what we talked about each week.
Castro Valley High School Interact
Aug 2015

Join us for another great lunch this Tuesday at Redwood Canyon. We welcome Jim O'Connor, Assistant General Manager for Operations for the East Bay Regional Park District. He will discuss the current tenant situation at Redwood Canyon (Willow Park) and what the next steps are for securing the future of the park. That will include a new RFP for a long-term management contract.
Please invite anyone of the community you know who has an interest in the future of Redwood Canyon (and might also be a prospective member!) You can always buy them lunch to make it easy for them to say "yes"!

August 25: Club Reacquaintance Session. In the spirit of both fellowship and vocation, each attending Rotarian spent a few minutes sharing why each person joined Rotary, why they remain in Rotary, what they do for a living, and how we can help them achieve either professional or personal goals.

What we learned:

  • Dwight and Jerome have been master recruiters for the club over the years. Of the thirty people present, these gents brought in three people each.

  • People join Rotary for a hundred different reasons (though many referenced a “free lunch” got them started down the road to membership!)

  • People stay in Rotary for the same reasons: Friendships, mutual support and being able to share the opportunity to work together to make Castro Valley a better place.

We need to keep supporting each other in every way, especially in the spirit of the Four-Way Test!
