THIS WEEK’S EDITOR
POINTS OF INTEREST
The Northwest Old-Growth Campaign
Mitch Friedman, a conservation biologist with a degree from the UW, is founder of Northwest Ecosystem Alliance, a 12,000-member organization committed to biological excellence throughout the Northwest. Mitch lives in Bellingham but spends about three days a week in the Seattle area working on his pet project.
The NWEA has formed a partnership with other groups to target specific areas that need attention. Such groups as the Cascade Conservation Partnership and the Northwest Old-Growth Campaign have resulted from these alliances. MORE
Truancy Board Volunteer Needed
The Bellevue School District has asked our club if we can support them with a volunteer to be part of a truancy board for high school students. The duty would require meeting approximately three hours per month in a mediation-type setting to help families determine courses of action for students with serious absentee problems. Meetings would take place at Sammamish High School. If you are interested, please contact Tom Smith (Ph 425-644-7013). Your help will be much appreciated!
District Display a Go
Susan Harrison will again use her many talents to construct the BBRC’s District Display, a center for information and education at the May District Conference. Susan wants to know if anyone has photos from various activities besides those appearing in the Reveille. For example, photos from First Harvest work parties and other District-level activities. Touch base with Susan, please.
Thought for the Week
We can try to avoid making choices by doing nothing … and that’s a decision, too.
“The Economic Impact of the Arts on the Eastside,” discussed by Doug McCallum, Principal of Financial Resources Group. Doug will cite the benefits uncovered in a survey in the summer of 2001. Guests are always welcome. Scrumptious buffet breakfast at 7:00; meeting at 7:30; and program at 8:00 a.m. at the Glendale Country Club. MAP ON CALENDAR
Still getting a few make-ups with nary a note about a date for the make-up, the date for which the make-up should apply, or even the name of the Rotary Club visited. We are doing quite well documenting our attendance. Please look at the card that’s given you at the make-up and make sure all of the data is there and is correct.
Another reminder: About 25 members are past due 60 days on March 1. Kindly dig up your January 1 billing and send the balance to BBRC, PO Box 3003, Bellevue WA 98009. Thanks.
