RTW: HIGHLAND FLING AND FELLOWSHIP MADE FOR A TREMENDOUS NIGHT
by Kaj Pedersen
Thanks to the amazing organization of the Fellowship committee, we had a packed event at the Newport Yatch Club for our RTW on 30th June. Eighty-three attendees joined in the fun and the Highland Fling gathering. We had a number of members join in the spirit with their Scottish attire and outfits to support the theme of the night. Our own Paul Harris and the Fellows were tremendous in their musical performance and were able to pack the floor with dancers throughout most of the evening.
We took the opportunity to thank the board and our outgoing President for their service this past
Rotary year. We also took the opportunity to recognize Joellen Monson for many years of dedicated service to the BBRC by making her a Paul Harris Fellow. Wendi Fischer was our Rotarian of the Year for her work with the M3v work-group and membership. Finally, Kaj Pedersen handed over the President’s pin to Chris Boland our new President for Rotary year 2018-19 and he took the opportunity to introduce his new board.
With the ceremonies over the rest of the evening was dedicated to fellowship and fun, as only the BBRC knows how to do very well! Thank you everyone for making this a night to remember.
