A River of Children
David Cousineau
, President of Seattle Children’s Home and member of the Rotary Club of Seattle #4, was the featured speaker Friday morning. Cousineau recognized Ted Ederer of the BBRC, who he said “reshaped the United Way while serving as it’s president last year, making it a much improved and efficient organization. He also noted that Bob McNulty had urged him to buy stocks in dot.coms. Still, Cousineau was impressed by the enthusiasm and alertness of the audience! MORE

GSE Turkey Interviews
Our own Susan Harrison has thrown her hat into the ring for the Rotary Team Leader for the District 5030 GSE trip to Turkey next spring. If you care to let the committee know of our support for Susan, call Warren Crain, (206) 324-0303. The interview is set for Wednesday, September 5th at 6:10 p.m.

New Virus Warning
This email was received Saturday from Charlie Ardvidson, hard-working Rotarian for District 5030. Just thought we should all know:

Hi - This looks like a bad virus that's coming. Forward this to others. Please read and forward to everyone you know.

DO NOT OPEN "NEW PICTURES OF FAMILY." It is a virus that will erase your whole "C" drive. It will come to you in the form of an E-Mail from a familiar person. A friend sent it to me, but called & warned me before I opened it. He was not so lucky and now he can't even start his computer!

Forward this to everyone in your address book. I would rather receive this 25 times than not at all. Also: Intel announced that a new and very destructive virus was discovered recently. If you receive an email called "FAMILY PICTURES," do not open it. Delete it right away! This virus removes all dynamic link libraries (.dll files) from your computer. Your computer will not be able to boot up.

Jitters Beckons New Members
Note New Date!
The New Member Committee is again sponsoring a “Get Ahead of the Curve” coffee hour at Jitters in the Sears shopping complex of Redmond/Bellevue. Because of the Labor Day holiday, the meeting will be moved “ahead” one week, to Tuesday, September 11, at 7:00 a.m. Featured speaker is Yakima’s own Kevin Jewell, who will elucidate on the workings of Rotary’s influence worldwide — in other words, Kevin will talk about his BBRC International Committee.

Don’t miss this monthly opportunity to get to know your fellow new members, hob-nob with old members, and generally learn about the mystical inner workings of the BBRC. You’ll be a better Rotarian for the time you put into the New Member Committee. And remember, when your anniversary date arrives, you will automatically matriculate OFF the New Member Committee.

Wayne McCaulley and Kim Shrader thank you.

This Week
Former BBRC Member Doug McLean returns to tell us of his success as CEO of Talking Rain. Guests are welcome for this breakfast meeting at the Glendale Country Club. Breakfast is served at 7:00 a.m., meeting at 7:30, and program at 8:00.

We’ve entered the final 30 days of the First Quarter. Because of the computer snafu, you received your dues billing nearly 30 days late. A little more than half the Club has paid, and we would like to get your checks before we do it all over again on October 1. Treasurer Martinka thanks you.

We’ll be gathering together our new members sometime later this month for photos that go in the Member Directory. New members should also look for an email with instructions on how to send us your bio sheet for placement on the site. The Member Directory is password protected, so you will also need to establish your login and password in the next few weeks. Thanks for joining the BBRC – the Club with the best darned website in all of North America and in the outskirts of Quincy, WA!
