“The Kids Are Alright: Growing Up In The 21st Century”

Scribe: Traci Tenhulzen Introduced by: Alan Pratt

There is a large issue or the Millennials in America.  Age 18 – 36, the largest demographic in our country, 87 million.

The cost of education is 600 times more than it was 60 years ago and what we are teaching students is information that has not been updated.

Since the founding of America the millennials are the first generation that are predicted to make less than their parents.

If a Millennial want sot retire by the age of 65 they would have to save 99% of their income.

There is good news!  We live in the age of miracles.  The Millennials the have technology! They are sponsoring companies that enrich the environment, they have the most number of start up companies.

The prediction is that in the next few years Millennials will be involved in government.  Encourage your Millennial to vote and get involved.

Congregation For The Homeless / St. Thomas Church

By Adam Mihlstin

A big shout-out to several Club members.  The St. Thomas Church reached out to BBRC last week in hopes we could support their efforts to house and feed 30 homeless men for the month of July.

The original request was to sponsor one lunch.  With the generosity of Fred Barkman, Brian Evison, Paul Cunnington, John Schwager, Colin Radford and Adam Mihlstin we raised over $200 and procured bread, deli meats, fruit, chips, snacks and bottled water for 3 to 4 days of lunches.

Thank you gentlemen!
