Beve Kindblade
Nutritionist Beve Kindblade

Nutrition in Our Changing World:
Eating for Better Health
Beve Kindblade
, MS, RD, CD and Assistant Professor of Nutrition at Bastyr Center for Natural Health in Seattle, gave an engaging talk about the foods we eat. Beve is a North Carolina native doing her undergrad work at Oregon State. 

“I’m glad you’re not afraid of eggs!” Beve said, noting the menu for Friday’s meeting. “Eggs are the perfect food. We nutritionists have scared people to death over the years. Food labels cause people to go out and eat at restaurants more often! We’ve chased people away from the table with food labels. There were no nutritionists on the committee when they devised the labels. I am a Dietician. I specialize in wholeness and wellness and for using food to restore health.” MORE

Fellowship With Margie
ROSE #2 will take place at
Margie Burnett’s home in Bellevue this Thursday afternoon, October 25, and evening. A casual evening of fellowship will note the Halloween season, and if there’s a game to watch, “we’ll watch the game!” It’s a relaxed time from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. Come visit! Counts as a make-up!

Anniversary Dinner on November 16
Invitations have gone out for the Club’s 16th Anniversary Dinner, set aboard the spacious new cruise ship, the Royal Argosy. Boarding is between 6:00 and 6:30 that evening, and the ship will return to Pier 55 by 9:30. Dinner and program will highlight the evening ($35.00 per person). This function takes the place of the regular meeting that morning. Nancy Isely-Fletcher is in charge of arrangements.

World Community Service

Mike Hyodo
Mike Hyodo

Chair of the WCS Committee, Mike Hyodo, said his committee will be “focusing on Russia for a hands-on project.” Plans are in the works to send a container to Perm, Russia, to an orphanage and to build a 3-chair dental office. Mike gave a pitch to join his committee. The project will need donations of new clothes, non-perishable food, and dental gear. Mike plans a trip in April of 2002.

On another note, this Saturday, October 27th, there will be a short work project to clear out old bikes at Carol Hoeft’s office in Bellevue. More busy hands will make short work. Contact Mike.

PPE Project
There is a need for at least 20 workers to continue work in the Sammamish River Valley from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon on November 10, at 60 Acres Park. Planting of shrubs and trees will take place. Sign-up sheet was circulated Friday. It’s a great family project! Bring shovels and gloves. Nancy Isley-Fletcher has details.

Learn the ups and downs of the Software Industry with Dan Vetras, President and CEO of Captura Software. He will discuss the volatile aspects of the industry and Captura’s challenges and successes. Bring a guest to Glendale Country Club for a great breakfast at 7:00 a.m. Meeting begins at 7:30, program at 8:00.
