Rancho Improvements Thanks to Rotary San Jose & Galante Brothers Construction

Categories: 2019, Current Newsletter, June, Newsletter

TFTSV has a new and improved storage area and outside classroom patio that was completed in May. The use of this additional area will help us to grow our program and serve more youth in the East San Jose area at our Rancho Del Pueblo Golf Course class location. This is just one of many TFSV -facilitated donation that TFTSV would like to make to improve Rancho for everyone, not just our participants.

The Rotary Club of San Jose Foundation awarded TFTSV a Community Grant of $5,144. to purchase a new storage shed for our class equipment and donated golf clubs.  The Foundation was founded in 1949 to support the charitable activities of the Rotary Club of San Jose, it has given more than $5,000,000 to many important local and international projects as well as direct grants to over 150 other community organizations. We feel very fortunate to have been selected and appreciate Rotary’s acknowledgement of the good things happening for San Jose youth at Rancho.

Galante Brothers General Engineering, Inc., through the generosity of Jack Galante, donated $7,500 of in-kind services and asphalt to upgrade the service area south of the Rancho clubhouse that was rough terrain of gravel and dirt. The now beautiful resurfaced area is home to the new shed and an expanded gathering spot with bleachers which will make it easier to conduct pre- and post-class meetings with our participants. Galante Brothers is known for their beautification of youth sports facilities in the community and we truly appreciate their work.
