The opening bell signaled another exciting Friday, morning with President Goldfarb doing the honors. (We thought he had a familiar ring to him.) Bill Schultheis was nominated to deliver the invocation and lead the pledge to the flag. Evelyn Cogswell asked four visiting Rotarians to explain their high school mascot to the audience. Didn't hear one from the Sand Fleas of Whidbey Island.
Earl Falk was honored at University Rotary on Friday for his work on Rotary First Harvest. He received the Mike Shanahan Award for his volunteer efforts. He was nominated for the award by Past President Cary Kopczynski. Congratulations, Earl! You are a credit to Rotary and the BBRC!
