Robbie Bach

Xbox "Rock Star" / Civic Engineer Retired President, Microsoft Entertainment & Devices Division

“From Chief Xbox Officer to Civic Engineer”

Introduced by: John Martinka

Based on his first book, Xbox Revisited:  A Game Plan for Corporate and Civic Renewal and many of his blog posts, Robbie explores the development of a strategic process that enables all of us to be “civic engineers.”   He explains how business principles can be used to influence, shape, and change the course of our local, state, and federal organizations in a more positive direction.  Robbie’s approach is neither Democratic nor Republican; instead it takes a common sense view of what is in the best interests of our citizens and paints a picture that is independent of most orthodoxy and doctrine.

Put Your Heart on a Banner!

By Paul Osborn

9 of the possible 16 slots have already been snapped up, but for just $100 you can advocate and evangelize your personal Service passion.  We are still looking for sponsors for the Adoption Party, Rotary First Harvest, Scholarships, and Computer for the World.

The rules are that each member can only sponsor one cause (we want to represent as many members as possible).  If $100 sounds a lot, we will accept a partnership if you can find someone else to chip in $50 for the same cause as you.

The banners will be changed periodically, but you can bank on at least a year

Imagine Scholar's annual benefit yard sale event

By Fred Janssen

Hello Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club,

Hope this message finds you well.

Imagine Scholar’s annual benefit yard sale event is right around the corner!  We would love your help finding items for our sale. Have unwanted items from your home or workplace? We’ll take them! Additionally, we would greatly appreciate if you could reach out to any business owners you know, your friends, co-workers, neighbors, and/or fellow Rotarians about the opportunity to ‘de-clutter for good!’
