Sergeant At Arms Rourke O’Brien fined Doug Engberg $2.00 for losing his ball in the cup at the Retreat Golf Outing; and Kemper Freeman, on loan from the Bellevue Downtown Club, for the spread in the paper about his new Lodge addition to Bellevue Square. Rourke said he could see the Rotary pin on Kemper’s suit, so reduced the fine from $5.00 to $3.00!

Madeline Gauthier showed a video on how Treehouse provides support for foster kids. The program makes kids feel good about themselves and raises their hopes, while Treehouse provides funds to make clothing and luggage available. It’s one of the programs supported by the BBRC.
