Thought For The Week


Strategic Planning & Leadership Coaching

Friday’s featured speaker was Mary Santiago, a trainer and coach in strategic planning for Alaska Airlines individuals and companies.

Mary pointed out that in order to benefit from strategic planning, you have to identify your values; then understand your mission; then have a vision of how to put that mission into effect; and, finally, to make priorities based on that vision, in order to realize it. More

Raffle Report

The BBRC version of a Presidential Campaign is underway, but not without considerable evidence of chicanery. The Whig Party candidate, Jim Zidar, seems to have been nominated in a straightforward, above-the-board manner. Not so Dick Brown, the Tory Party candidate.  More

Sergeant At Arms Corner

Apparently, Rourke O’Brien hasn’t gotten totally into the groove yet. He wasn’t booed and hissed, but actually applauded when he strode to the podium. And, he’s still pretty light on fines.

Of course , John, never one to underestimate his own worth, expressed some disappointment that his article was only worthy of a $3 fine, at which point Sergeant O’Brien raised it to $5.  Way to go, John!

Rotary Minute

Do you know the origin of the Four-Way Test?  Well, we didn’t either.

It appears that Rotarian, Herb Taylor, the President of a company called Club Aluminum, thought up the test as a way to bolster his sagging business in 1932 Chicago in the depths of the Depression. Ultimately, his business failed, but Mr. Taylor went on to become President of Rotary International in 1954, at which time he introduced the Four-Way Test to Rotary.




Mark your calendars and get out your grooming kits.The BBRC’s first beautiful legs contest for men only will be held on Friday, August 18. Female BBRC members will judge and stupendous prizes will be awarded, all compliments of the Tory Party.

Howard Johnson’s father died earlier this week at the age of 91. The funeral was Saturday, July 29. Our sympathies and best wishes go out to Howard and his family.
