trying harder.” More
Rotarian of the Month
For service above and beyond what we all expect, Tim Moriarty was selected as Rotarian of the Month. Tim was cited for his leadership contribution to the annual Golf
Outing. As Chairpreson, Tim took his team to new heights, producing the most successful Outing ever. Congratulations to Tim, and remember to thank him for all he does for the BBRC.
Club President Cary Koczynski congratulates Tim Moriarty on his selection as Rotarian of the Month.
President Cary gave a Rotary Minute about the Rotary Wheel. When Rotary was founded in 1905, a prototype of today’s Wheel was crafted. The designer wanted the emblem to signify “motion and progress.” As Rotary
grew, different versions of “The Wheel” emerged. Finally, in 1922, Rotary International took pains to standardize the emblem, asking Montague Bahr to design it. The Rotary Wheel, which we all wear
proudly, survives to this day as Rotary moves to celebration of its Centennial in 2005.
Rotary First Harvest
One of District 5030’s most significant
projects is Rotary First Harvest. From the beginning of the Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club, we have supported RFH with our financial contributions, our hands-on work, and our leadership. Rotary First Harvest’s Board
of Directors praised the volunteerism of our own Earl Falk recently with a letter to President Cary.
RFH cited Earl’s continued support and
his leadership for this important organization. In his own quiet way, Earl has asked Reveille to “please continue to generate Club interest in our monthly visit to Northwest Harvest, every second Saturday, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.” Members receive a meeting make up when they attend. You’re invited to bring your family members to help get food ready for distribution. Next opportunity is Saturday, September 9th, at Pier 91, in Seattle.
