 Friday Potpourri

After the opening bell gonged by President Kopczynski, Alan Bohling delivered the invocation and led the pledge to the flag. Phil Salvatori made a big deal out of the visit of one visiting Rotarian; however, there were scads of guests of members all warmly recognized by the Club.

Put a big circle around Saturday November 18, the date for the BBRC’s 15th Anniversary Party. It’s set for the Columbia Tower Club, beginning at 6:00 pm., with a reception, a wonderful dinner, music, dancing, and the announcement of the raffle winner, special gifts, and door prizes. The Club is underwriting this event to encourage all members to attend. Black tie is optional; complimentary parking is available. Dick Brown says so.

Brown also announced the newly restructured “Creative Tie” contest this coming Friday, October 27. Give the District Governor an eyeful – everyone create a Creative Tie and join in the fun!

The Preserve Planet Earth Committee gives last call for this Saturday’s gigantic tree and shrub planting party at Marymoor Park in Redmond. Along the banks of the Sammamish River, thousands of trees and shrubs have been planted over the past several years, giving life-sustaining shade and nutrients to the salmon using the stream to travel to their spawning grounds. Alex Rule and Jim Young are “Planters-in-Charge.” Bring your family and your kids on Saturday, October 28, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Marymoor Park. Just follow the signs. This counts as a meeting make-up.
