Santa Claus Brings Joy to BBRC Members

by Kaj Pedersen

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!”

I Want YOU For Fellowship!

Reply to Carmela Ramaglia

DACdb doesn’t list Fellowship as a separate committee, so I don’t know who wants to be part of the most FUN committee at the BBRC. So in the spirit of inclusion, you are officially invited to be on my Fellowship Committee!! Just hit the Blue Button to reply and let me know you want in.

Our First Fellowship Committee Meeting of the New Rotary Year is TUESDAY, August 7th at the Azteca on 112th. The meeting will officially begin at 5:00 pm, but feel free to come early and enjoy Happy Hour!

If you can’t make the meeting, but still want to be on Fellowship, just let me know so I can get you on my list!!

Yours in YAY!!

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

The Scotch is never far away from the kilts!

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.

BBRC Fellowship in Action at Leavenworth Retreat

by Kaj Pedersen

Fellowship fun in Leavenworth

Thank you to our members who were able to attend our Retreat reboot this weekend.  We had 23 members from the club come to Leavenworth for fellowship and strategic planning for Rotary year 2018-19.  Dennis Newell and the organizing committee planned for a fun, active and involved gathering this year – wine tasting, golfing, dinner and games night, which were all followed by lively & engaged discussion on Saturday.


Wendi Fischer leading the discussion at our Retreat

Many ideas were discussed during the session, facilitated by Wendi Fischer, and these included membership engagement, fund raising, programs, fellowship and service projects.  A number of ideas were presented and discussed with the view that these will be incorporated into Chris Boland’s plan for his Presidency.  We will be following up with the outcomes for our club membership, so that they can learn about our ideas and thoughts for the upcoming Rotary year.

Our thanks to the members, including many past presidents, for their passion and ideas in support of the club’s success for the future.
