Thought For The Week


Chapple Langemack
Friday's featured speaker, Chapple Langemack, talks about the Summer Reading List.

Great Summer Reading

The King County Library’s Reader Services Coordinator, Chapple Langemack, gave a light-hearted review of several fine new books available for summer reading. Langemack has been called the “Chief Cheerleader for Books” in King County, “The Book Goddess,” and “The Empress for Reading and Pleasure.” Anyway you cut it, Chapple knows her stuff and presents a fun program.

BBRC Foundation Committee Sets Schedule

Chairman Rick Klobucher has set a schedule for a number of Monday mornings for the Foundation Committee to begin its laborious task of selecting the agencies and organization to be recipients of supporting grants.  More

Fellowship Sets Picnic

Dick Brown rose to tell the Club about future Fellowship programs. Dick will serve as Chairman of the Fellowship Committee during the coming year. More

Medina Days 2000 On The Horizon

A glutton for punishment, Joseph Brazen has once again volunteered to be chairman of Medina Days. More

Board Acts

The BBRC Board of Directors reluctantly accepted the resignations from two members at their June meeting. George Lovell and Jim Palmquist, both citing conflicts with their job schedules have requested to be relieved of their membership. The Board approved these requests.

On another membership issue, Steve Brown, who resigned late last fall after his work assignment changed, sent a letter to the Club enclosing payment for a past-due bill … plus a $100 donation to the Rotary Foundation!

The District 5030 Leadership Center will open this summer for members of the District. Applications for enrollment are being accepted. Contact Dick Clarke.


Madonna playing croquet - sort of.
Seems the Bellevue Sunrise Club is very interested in seeing a team from the BBRC compete in their annual fund raiser … .their Annual Croquet Tourney. It’s set for Wednesday, August 9, at the Red Hook Brewery in Woodinville. Six participants makes a team, with the entry tab at $250. President Kopczynski challenged the Club to field at least one team, so the Sunrisers will agree to field a golf team next year at the BBRC Golf Tourney. Tit for tat.

Salmon Days
Issaquah Rotary Run at Salmon Days Seeks Sponsors

The 24th Annual Issaquah Rotary Run, set for October 8 (Salmon Days weekend) this year, is seeking sponsors! With over 1,500 runners, thousands of spectators, and hundreds of thousands of Salmon Days festival-goers, sponsorship will be a great marketing investment.

Opportunities start at $250, and we are still seeking a major sponsor whose name would be splashed on T-shirts, all run advertising and promotion, and in all official Salmon Days material. Please contact Craig Nelsen for details.

If you are a runner interested in making application, they will be available soon online, or you can call the run hotline at 425-392-9019.

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.
