Demystifying Internet Payment Fraud

Joe Barette, co-founder and Vice-President for Marketing of a Seattle-based company, Vitessa Corporation, set out to explain why there’s FUD in the new markets being created by the Internet. FUD, for your information, stands for “Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt.” The growth of the Internet, as we’ve learned in past weeks, has a phenomenal growth track building toward a $100 billion market, “yet consumer trust is low,” said Joe.

Foundation Committee Acts

Rick Klobucher, BBRC Foundation Committee chairperson, announced that the annual sending of applications for financial support to area organizations will begin this week. The Foundation list contains names of 48 organizations that serve the Eastside in special ways. The list was made available at Friday’s meeting. Klobucher invited members who may have other organizations that should be contacted to give him a call. This activity is a prelude to the Foundation Committee selection of the various organizations the BBRC will financially support in the coming year. This is important business, so make sure you and your interests are served.

Rotary Wheel
Rotate The Wheels This Friday Night

The BBRC’s annual Rite of Summer, “Rotating the Wheels Banquet,” will take place at the General Petroleum Museum, on Capitol Hill, in Seattle, this Friday evening. Beginning at 6:00 p.m. with a reception, a dinner buffet is scheduled at 7:00 p.m., with kudos to the retiring administration of John DeWater and a welcome to the new leadership headed by new President Cary Kopczynski. Other entertainment will follow. Dress is “very casual.” The visit to the Petroleum Museum is an experience in itself. It’s located at 1526 Bellevue Avenue, Seattle.

There will be some auction items offered that evening: two tickets on Northwest Airlines to any destination in the continental U.S., a Mariner Baseball jersey signed by Edgar Martinez; and a dinner for two couples at the fashionable townhome of Gordie and Sharon Edberg. A gourmet repast will be prepared by the gastronomical master.

If you haven’t made arrangements to attend, contact Peter Powell immediately!
