BBRC members were all asked to donate $2 to pay for and wear a pin to help raise awareness. Impressively, BBRC had 100% participation and exceeded succeeded in 100% participation, while raising which would raise at least $3,500. The key goal we achieved was 100% participation to send a clear message of BBRC’s united commitment to ending Malaria.  Fun facts: BBRC has 97 members were all asked to pledge $2 for the pin, and 100% participated; the generosity of members surpassed the $194 the pins would have raised and contributed more than $3,500 AND the BBRC will match this for a total donation of $7,000.

We need to listen and start a dialogue about building our relationship with our Police profession with society. He has been in serving as Bellevue Chief of Police for one year.

Young Leaders Summit at International Conference in Seoul

Thank you Bellevue Breakfast Rotarians for allowing us to come and speak to you last month about May’s Young Professional’s Summit at the Rotary International Convention in Seoul. As you may remember from our talk, Rotary received an anonymous $1 million grant 2 years ago to help revolutionize Rotary and focus on engaging and retaining younger members. Previous, smaller summits, and this major international one have focused on bringing together young Rotarian (under 40) and Rotaract (under 30) leaders to help determine the direction of Rotary in the upcoming years.

District Governor Terry has pledged to send 10 young professionals from 5030 to Korea’s event, and we are fundraising to help cover out-of-pocket costs for these young attendees. The International Convention is a fantastic opportunity to hook these young leaders on Rotary; the last Rotaractor the district sent came home to start a new Rotaract Club, host a regional Rotaract Conference, and join the inaugural board of MDIO Big West Rotaract! Check out Terry’s message about young professionals in District 5030 in February’s The Bridge.

You can help fund our trip (we’re getting close to our goal!!) by donating personally at https://www.gofundme.com/5030YLS or have your club donate directly to the district to support our trip.

Thank you so much for your time and enthusiasm,
