Thought For
The Week

On the occasion of Good Friday, ďI am in awe of the Maker of galaxies and geese, stars and starfish, mercury and men (both male and female). Sometimes it is rapturous awe, sometimes it is humble awe of knowing that I belong to God, to the Maker whose thumbprint is on each one of us.Ē

A Quick Primer To The Internet

To adequately cover the story of the internet in 30 minutes is asking for a BBRC miracle. It almost happened when Rob Parker and Eric McLaughlin, acquaintances of Steve Lingenbrink, amply filled the abyss left when the scheduled speaker wasnít able to perform. Parker, President & CEO of Acrosonic Corporation in Bellevue, talked about the growth of his firm, which provides graphics and information for internet users. A former teacher, Parker has seen his company grow from the garage to a new 2,500 s.f. office housing eight full-time employees. They have clients across the country, in biotech and aerospace industries particularly. More

YWCA Receives Support

Cinco de Mayo

Friday Potpourri

The Invocation was delivered by Jenny Andrews, who recited a poem purely from her memory bank! Wendi Olds greeted four visiting Rotarians and a host of guests.

Jane Kuechle announced the Best of Bellevue shindig is set for May 19 at the Meydenbauer Center. Twelve community leaders will be honored, with food and wine and brew tasting, and all of this supports the work of Advance Bellevue, the community leadership organization.


Wear Your Rotary Pin Proudly

The pin each of us received upon induction into the world of Rotary is a symbol of the globeís greatest public service organization. Celebrating its 100th year in 2005, Rotary International has done a world of good everywhere on this earth. Your local club, the BBRC, and our District 5030, have also followed suit with critical support of many worthwhile community endeavors.

Itís amazing how many people donít know what Rotary is. Wearing your pin everyday provokes either recognition of the organizationís goals or questions about what it is. Itís a perfect entry to a discussion about Rotary to a prospective member. Wearing your pin to meetings is almost a given (if you donít want a fine) but itís an opportunity the rest of the week to spread the good word about Rotary. Do it and be proud!

The Reveille is published weekly by the Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club for the enlightenment and enjoyment of its members. It is available through on the BBRC website usually no later than Tuesday of each week. Members of the publication committee include Mark Hough, Tom Helbling, John Mix,  Steve Roberts, and Frank Stillo. Website maintenance by Cheep Graphics, Tacoma.
