America’s Band: The Beach Boys Three brothers, a cousin, and a friend exported the California beach

A flower child from the 60’s, Bob knows his music from the era: the songs, artists, and stories that make for a fascinating, memorable and simply sensational multi-media presentation. 

He is also a professional photographer, teaching and inspiring photographers in week-long travel experiences around the world. Bob a also has two books published from his pro-bono portraits of the special kids and families at Ronald McDonald House in NY and Portland OR.

Bob grew up around the sound stages of Hollywood as his mother was a motion picture teacher to child stars in the studio system. But it was his Dad’s Zenith transistor radio playing 1959 rock ’n roll music, that proved the inspiration for his career in performance.

Bob Ray is a Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame nominee, joining us  January 19th wearing his trademark black fedora and circular shades, speaking on ‘Rock ’n Roll Songs, Singers and Stories.'

"Perspectives on Global Citizenship From a Former Rotary Scholar"

There are really three things that I'd like to talk about in this presentation.  First, the impact that being a Rotary Scholar had on my life.  Second, the incredible Global Citizenship program we have on campus (including a conference on Genocide that we will be hosting in mid-April); and finally, an annual conference in Salzburg on global citizenship that we send a group of students to each year.

Farming Hope

Farming Hope to plant 50 citrus trees as part of our commitment to support RI President Riseley's goal of planting one tree per Rotarian. By planting 50 citrus trees, we not only fulfill the tree planting objective, but we are also supporting the homeless and providing a source for food - a bit of a three-in-one return for a single service project.
 
Farming Hope turns the soup kitchen turned on its head – by hiring the people who usually stand in line, to produce food and feed others. They create jobs for homeless people in gardening and use that food in cooking workshops and meals. Growing and serving food lets their folks feel valued and empowered to share their gifts. This, in turn, empowers individuals out of homelessness by creating dignified work and safe spaces.
 
Farming Hope runs programs in San Francisco, and is launching a San Jose team this Thanksgiving. Their work here is inspired by Farming Hope programs in El Salvador.
