November 13th - District 5170 Governor Orin Mahoney to visit Hollister

Let's all give District Governor a warm Hollister Welcome! 
Orrin Mahoney is a long time resident of Cupertino, California. After graduating from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1967, he came to California to work at Hewlett-Packard and received a Master’s degree from Stanford while working there. After a 35 year management career at HP, he retired and devoted his time to community activities. He is a former member of the Cupertino City Council, and has served twice as Mayor.
In addition to many other community groups, he is an active member and past president of the Rotary Club of Cupertino. As part of the Club’s International Service activities, he has participated in 11 project trips to Mexico, China, India, and Central and South America. He was the Area 8 Assistant Governor in 2014-2015, the District’s Membership Committee Chair in 2015-2016 and the District Conference Chair in 2016-2017.
