The Los Altos Story

In 1989, Dushan and Barbara Angius spearheaded a Rotary AIDS Project as they struggled with the death of their son, Steven Angius (1957-1989) and a Rotary friend, Walter Singer (1923-1992).  At a time in our history when fear prevented compassion for AIDS patients, Mr. Angius and the others who worked on this Rotary project broke ground in addressing the subject in a way that allowed understanding by those in Rotary and in the Los Altos Community.  The DVD and booklet "The Los Altos Story" have been translated into many languages and is still being distributed today throughout the world.
The 1960 Excalibur was dedicated to Mr. Dushan Angius.
