RTW: HIGHLAND FLING AND FELLOWSHIP MADE FOR A TREMENDOUS NIGHT

By Kaj Pedersen

A few came in style with their tartan glory

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.

Many Hands Make For Light Work - Tavon Work Party

By Adam Mihlstin

BBRC Crew Supporting Tavon Center

Great fellowship, great weather and a little backbreaking work made a small dent in the daily upkeep of Tavon Learning Center’s beautiful 6 acre campus on the Issaquah Plateau. Tavon Learning Center is a recent grant recipient that received funds for the upkeep of their greenhouse operation.

Tavon provides active learning and community programs that empower adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to acquire home and community skills for living better. For people with disabilities, having an equal opportunity to participate in post-high school learning and make community connections can change everything!

You can find Tavon at Gilman Village, outside of Mudhouse Pottery, every Thursday from 11:30 – 3:30 PM until mid-September. All proceeds go directly to our programs and benefit our members.
