By Alexandra Chehab

On Friday August 25th, a small group of BBRC Rotarians: Paul Osborn, Wendi Fischer, Laura Cosacchi and Alex Chehab, set off to tour the Teen Center that is part of the Boys and Girls Club of Bellevue. We were scouting for possible service projects to help Middle-Schoolers in Bellevue.

2017 Charity Golf Classic at Bear Creek

Thanks to all for a successful BBRC Charity Golf Classic

Fundraiser Event  •   Organized by Fundraising: Golf Classic
By John Schwager

Our 2017 BBRC Charity Golf Classic, which took place on Monday August 28th and the Bear Creek Country Club, was an overwhelming success.  Our 23 sponsors and our 27 auction donors were all generous in their support of our club.  Our 84 golfers enjoyed a round at one our state’s most prestigious (and difficult!) courses.  Our many volunteers all contributed their time and their talent to the event. We all enjoyed an outstanding salmon-and-steak dinner.

Thank you to all for your support of BBRC and our many good works!!

Executive Committee

August is Membership Month!

By Kaj Pedersen

Our Rotary membership allows us to enjoy these additional benefits:

Rotary Global Rewards, our member benefits program, which offers discounts on products and services. It’s Rotary’s way of helping our members spend less so they can do more.

The Rotary International Convention is our biggest event of the year. Rotary members from more than 130 countries meet at the convention each year to celebrate our successes and make plans for the future.  It is my hope that we can get a strong contingent from BBRC to attend next year, so we can demonstrate our club’s strength and fellowship in a dynamic city like Toronto.

Rotary Fellowships give members the chance to join a group of people who share similar interests, hobbies, or vocations. Some groups use their fellowship to make a positive difference.

Rotarian Action Groups unite Rotary members, family members, program participants and alumni who share their expertise in particular fields by collaborating with clubs and districts on projects.

I hope that you will take an opportunity to click on the links above and learn more about these benefits.  It is important that we find ways to enjoy the value that our membership can bring to us outside of the club. It will allow us to expand our relationships and build connections that can serve our objectives to do good in our communities and the world.
