A Video History of Los Altos Rotary AIDS Project

A compendium of videos describes the history and product of the Los Altos Rotary AIDS Project.

The video, The Los Altos Story resulted when the Los Altos Rotary Club confronted AIDS in 1989. Other videos document, in retrospect, the ways in which other Rotarians reacted and were changed by the crisis within the club.

The global reach of the Los Altos initiative was demonstrated at Rotary's International Conference in 1992, when Dude Angius was invited to share his experience in a keynote address.

For a closer look at Dude Angius' achievements and honors during his many years of public service as an educator, coach, principal, community leader and Rotarian, click here.
