At their Monday, July 22nd meeting, Milpitas Rotarians learned
about "Dr. Doolittle" coming to Milpitas from Rotarian Dr. Emmanuel Tama Mumah
DVM and his new Tama Veterinary Hospital at 4 N. Abel St.
His power point presentation showed off his new facility that
offers full-service veterinary care for dogs, cats, birds, and exotics like
snakes and lizards.
Dr. Tama's multi-room hospital features the latest in diagnostic
and laboratory equipment and surgical procedures. He is open 365 days a year and
available 24/7 for emergencies.
Dr. Tama received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine Degree
in 1991 from Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) in Zaria, Nigeria.
He also has a
Master of Science Degree and he became a professor, who graduated over five hundred
veterinary students at the University of Agriculture in Markudi, Nigeria.
Dr. Tama has been
active in veterinary practice for the past 22 years.
Rotarian and Republic Services Division Manager, Gil Cheso,
presented his video program about the world's largest Material Recovery Facility
(MRF) at their Newby Island Resource Recovery Park in San Jose near Milpitas.
The facility serves over 8,000 San Jose businesses and 85,000
households with a capacity of 420,000 tons of material per year recovering 80%
commercial and 95% residential for recycle.
Gil added that Republic Services is undergoing reorganization
with one person slated to manage the entire facility for a more cohesive and
quicker response time.
He said he would be transferring north to the Fremont, Newark,
Niles area. He plans to be involved in Rotary there. His replacement to be
announced is cordially invited to join the Milpitas Rotary Club.
Past President Doris Roth filled in for President Mark
Tiernan, who was on vacation.
The Milpitas Rotary Club meets Mondays at noon at Brandon's
Restaurant in the Beverly Heritage Hotel.
