A Trip Up Kilimanjaro

Friday’s guest speaker, Rotarian Steve DeWalt (Past President, Overlake Rotary Club), spoke with some passion about his trek to the highest point in Africa, 19,340-foot Mt. Kilimanjaro. “On February 16, 2000, I, along with others in my party, reached the summit of Africa’s highest mountain. Only as I came down the mountain did it hit me what I had accomplished!” More

Rotary Homeless Youth Foundation Report Offered

A visit by a very active Rotarian brought the BBRC up to date on the Rotary Homeless Youth Foundation project in Seattle. Heidi Shepherd, Past Lake Forest Park President and holder of many positions at the district level, gave a spirited dissertation on the status of the project. More

New Prospect For Exchange Program

Don Chandler, perpetual Chairperson of the Club’s Exchange Program, rose to introduce-by letter a male student from Thailand, who is enthused about becoming involved in the program this fall. He would arrive in August of 2000 and return in July 2001. Don explained that the young man has just graduated from high school and intends to major in English, so that he can teach English in his own country. His credentials are outstanding. The need is for at least three host families. Contact Don Chandler. “Time is of the essence.”

Next Level Of Members Only Section Continues

For members who have not yet had their pictures taken for the new website directory, please plan to arrive early this Friday for the next round. Larry Gill and his big, fancy, new Nikon digital camera will make your pixels look better than ever! Plan either before or after the meeting to have your picture taken.

As of 5:00 p.m., Friday, May 19, 2000, 22 members had filed their “Census Forms.” That leaves 86 of you who need to sneak in to the website and fill out the form. Only takes about five minutes.

Coming next will be instructions on creating your username and password to access the Members Only Section. If we all get our pictures taken and submit a census form, we can move forward.

Until later then, your website crew thanks you!

Member Directory form now available!

Fund Raising Success for Your Rotary Foundation

District 5030 has received an update on fundraising for the Permanent Fund from our Permanent Fund National Advisor, John Rasmussen. Our District leads the list in donations to The Rotary Foundation at $320,000! For Permanent Fund gifts we are also on top, with pledges of $119,000. Out of over 520 districts in the world of Rotary, our District 5030 is 21st in total giving!

Great job!

But, we can’t rest on our laurels, can we? So much hurt, so much need in our world. We quote a memo recently received from Michael W. Abdalla, PDG, Rotary Regional Foundation Coordinator from Orange, CA: “The Annual Programs Fund goal that I have set for my area exceeds the combined total of the goals you have set, because I am confident that you will strive to exceed those goals. Annual giving in our area in 1998-1999 was over $5 million dollars, and this current year’s goal is over $5.4 million. In a region of the U.S. as affluent as ours, we should be able to reach $6.0 million!” As they say, shoot for the moon and you just might get there.

Thought For The Week

To accomplish something important, two things are required-a good idea and not enough time.

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.
