Wendi Fischer Saves The Day
BBRC Member Wendi Fischer at the spur of the moment.
President Cary Kopczynski's worst fear was realized this week with a "no show" from the scheduled speaker.
Wendi Fischer came to the rescue by volunteering to provide an early version of her Classification Talk. She was given three cheers for her gracious offer, and the talk was
followed by reclassification discussions amongst Rotarians at each table.
Wendi pointed out a number of changes since her "Red Badge" was issued:
The first was a name change form Olds to Fischer earlier this year, when she married her "good friend" of 14 years, Chad.
Other changes have involved her career. Wendi, a former high school teacher for six years, is now involved in television production activities for the City of Bellevue. She
produces and hosts a weekly television news magazine, "Its Your City," on Bellevue cable channel 55 [7:30 p.m. Wednesdays; 11:30 a.m. Fridays]. Her video production crew
consists of students from Bellevue Community College. Wendi and her team have also produced a video promoting the salmon habitat in Kelsey Creek. She will soon be providing introductions for future television
productions of Bellevue Philharmonic Orchestra concerts.
President Cary Kopczynski presented the following list of "Rotary Firsts":
- The first Rotary Club meeting was held in Chicago on February 23, 1905.
- The first club to hold weekly meetings was the Oakland, CA, Rotary, the third club chartered by Rotary International.
- The first club banner to orbit the moon was carried by Apollo 8 astronaut Frank Borman, a member of the Houston Space Center Rotary.
- The first U.S. President to address a Rotary Convention was Warren G. Harding, in 1923 in St. Louis.
- The first Rotary motto was adopted in 1911 at the convention in Portland, Oregon, when the motto "He Profits Most Who Serves Best" won by a close margin over "A Friend in Need is
a Friend to Avoid".
