20120109RichardPriceSRVFPDLast Regular Meeting – Richard Price, Chief, San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District brought the club up to date on happenings in the fire protection district including the new smartphone CPR app. He didn’t talk about CERT (disaster response training) but all of Dougherty Valley Rotary’s members have taken the training. It’s something worth considering for our club.

Saurabh brought us up to speed on PACE, Piyali school where the club is sponsoring six students. The photos were combined into a header for the new contactrotary.org website.

Vic G described a small weekly project for Danville Seniors. We have enough volunteers to give it a try. More details to follow.
