This Week's Program:   New Members 

Our newest members, Frank Klein and Rae Schmidt, will introduce themselves officially to the club talking about their backgrounds and what led them to join Rotary. 


Last  Week's Program:  (courtesy of Last Week Editor, Dean Babcock)

President-elect David Hyman introduced Sharon Niederhaus to speak about Multi-generational Living.  Sharon lives in Portola Valley Ranch and is a seventh generation Californian.  She attended San Mateo High School and graduated from Mills College.  Sharon was founder and director of the Adopt-a-School program.  She is also a former member of the Menlo Park Rotary Club.

     Sharon has a web site www.togetheragain.com to publicize her concept of the extended family of today.  She wrote her thesis at Stanford on the “Accessory Apartment-Proximity with Privacy.’  Her book is a handbook for establishing and maintaining a multi-generational family compound. It includes outlines for remodeling plans, cohabitation agreements, legal considerations, financial arrangements and a bibliography.

    Club members asked numerous questions and engaged Sharon in discussion on several related subjects.


Next Week's Program:   Club Assembly  Please bring non-perishable food for the St. Francis Center in Redwood City.  Sister Cristina indicates that cake and brownie mixes would be appreciated. 


Club NewsCongratulations are due to Dave's old cronies, the Navy Seals, who just a few hours ago rescued Captain Phillips from the Somali pirates.  Did you wish you were there, Dave?
