The Changing Demographics of the Eastside

Greg Gourley, Director of New Americans of Washington, an organization that helps immigrants apply for and be granted naturalized citizen status, served a wake-up call to the changing demographics of the Eastside. “The 8th Congressional District is changing rapidly,” said Gourley. “Change is coming at a much faster pace … the last 15 years have covered as much change as the previous 50.”

Describing America’s melting pot as “a fruit salad,” Gourley pointed out that there are no more Ellis Islands, and that new immigrants will fly directly here from Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and South America. They are attracted to Washington because of long-established ethnic communities flourishing in our state. More

District Conference A Blast!!

Led by District Governor Duane Ruud, the 1999-2000 District 5030 Conference lured 367 attendees to the decks of the Dawn Princess, the first “floating” conference in District history. Seven BBRC members attended: John DeWater, Wayne McCaulley, Bruce Walker, Dale Hemphill, Earl Falk, Dick Clarke, and Wally Mahoney. Also in attendance were spouses Pat Walker, Hellen Hemphill, Feigie Falk, Donna Clarke, and Bernadette Mahoney. More

Member Directory Update

A current count shows that 75 members have had their pictures taken by Larry Gill, and 42 have responded with their completed Directory census forms. Obviously, the goal is 109 in both categories. More pictures will be taken June 9. Members can access the Directory Census Form at any time on the website.

Remember, we’re looking for information about you, stuff that tells us where you were born and raised, your education and training, and a good description of your vocational expertise. Keep those forms coming! Questions? Contact John Mix.

At this point, there isn’t a whole lot to look at in the Directory, but members can begin establishing logins and passwords to access the Members Only area. Click here or on the Members Only links at the tops and bottoms of each page to get to the starting point. You will see an area for FIRST-TIME MEMBER LOGIN. Key in your login, which, as the instructions say, is last name, first name, middle initial, all lowercase, with no spaces or commas. Next, key in your desired password, case sensitive, numbers and letters okay, any length. Once you have submitted your information, your access will be approved and your information entered into the online database. You will then receive an email confirming your login and password and letting you know when you can begin accessing the Members Only area.

Committee Sign-Ups
There is still time to sign up for committees for the coming year. President-Elect Cary Copczynski asks that members consider signing up for at least two committees each. sign-up sheets will be available at meetings for another couple of weeks.

Thought For The Week

The only two subjects of conversation at the race track are why you expect to win and how you happened to lose (on the occasion of the Great Race this Friday).
