John Walton

So sponsor of John Walton Father John Mangels (left in photo) introduced John Walton (right). Then Past District Governor Jim Thompson formally inducted John as a new member and asked John to say a few words. John mentioned that he went to El Camino High School and graduated from Sacramento State as a naturalist. He persued various careers and finally became a 3rd grade teacher in Palo Alto. He was a Rotarian there and is a past president and a Paul Harris Fellow.
John retired and moved to Sacramento, where upon he noticed our Rotary signs at Effie Yeaw and contacted our Club just 3 weeks ago. He came as a guest to our Club and was pleased that everyone made him feel so welcome and he felt like he was coming home to Rotary.
Now he is home as a new member. Welcome John!


Dr. Shyama Chakroborty

Now the sponsor of Shyama Chakroborty (left in photo), Phil Danz (right) , introduced Shyama. Immediately Past District Governor Jim Thompson inducted Shyama as a new member and asked Shyama to say a few words.
Shyama said that he has had a wonderful career here in America since coming over from India with $9.57 in his pocket. He loves America and thinks it is the greatest nation on earth, because anyone can make something of themselves if they work hard and play by the rules. Shyama has multiple degrees, including a Ph.D. from Ohio State. He has been a cosmonaut, professor at U.C.L.A. Shyama recently retired as Chief Engineer at Northrop Grumman. Welcome Shyama!
It is hard to believe but we now have 9 new members in this last Rotary year!
