Santa Claus Brings Joy to BBRC Members
Members kicked off their Christmas festivities at their last meeting before the New Year with a visit from Santa. Our last meeting was led with music and an opportunity for all of us to sing favorite Christmas songs to bring the jolly into the holly season.
Santa Claus popped in after we had cleared our lungs with the seasonal singing and filled our stomachs with the sumptuous Xmas breakfast laid on by the Glendale staff. He was able to meet with all the children who came with their parents and grandparents – the kids were thrilled with meeting Santa and telling him their wishes for Christmas!
Not to be outdone, some our own BBRC members got in on the action to let Santa know of their Christmas wishes – let’s hope that they all come true!
Perhaps the best way to celebrate Christmas is to remind us all that the “best of all gifts around any Christmas tree is the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other!”
Interviewers Needed for Rotary Youth Exchange Candidates
District interviews for Rotary Youth Exchange candidates are scheduled for Saturday, January 5th and we need your help interviewing candidates.
This is a wonderful opportunity to spend some time getting to know the talented students who have applied for the short and long-term Rotary Youth Exchange programs. I’ve been participating in the district interviews for five years and it truly is an enriching and eye-opening experience.
The BBRC has an outstanding candidate for the short-term program, Grace Newell. She is bright, dedicated and is looking forward to experiencing a new culture. She is also Dennis Newell’s granddaughter.
Please let me know if you are interested in interviewing students. Details are below:
Date: January 5, 2019 Place: International Community School, 11133 NE 65th St, Kirkland Time: 8:30am – noon
Thank you, Colleen 425-306-7391 or firstname.lastname@example.org

BBRC Shows Up Strong at December RFH
Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club members and their guests outdid themselves at Rotary First Harvest – a program of Rotary District 5030 this morning. We had over 30 people working on oats and beans. Thank you to John Smolke and his team at Peterson Sullivan, the Forest Ridge Interact Club, Kaj & Clare Pedersen, Adam Mihlstin, Howard Johnson, Colin Radford, Andrew Face and his daughter Quincy, Eli Enger and his fiancée, Brittany Powell and Colleen Turner.
The strong turnout helped Rotary First Harvest to pack 3,500 pounds of oats which equals 2,692 meals and 7,500 pounds of beans which equals 5,770 meals for our community.
