The BBRC Centennial Project


 

JohnsonAn ambitious combination of energy, enthusiasm, sweat-equity and financial support was the recipe for the BBRC Centennial Project, as envisioned by President-Elect Norm Johnson at Friday’s meeting. In cooperation with the Bellevue Parks Department, the BBRC hopes to join in developing a special needs play areas at Crossroads. Back in December, Johnson outlined the elements required by Rotary International to qualify for a Centennial project of whichare: 1) identifying a community need; 2) selecting a project that is meaningful to the community; 3) providing hands-on opportunity for members; 4) capturing measurable results; and 5) identifying Rotary as a project sponsor.

“This project will provide ‘inclusive play’ for all youngsters, but is particularly designed to serve the needs of disabled kids. It will be a water park with what is called ‘zero-depth’ play area, a sound garden and other special amenities,” said Norm. The area is designated as Crossroads Community Park and fits in with a master plan developed by the Bellevue Parks Department. READ MORE


MEMBERSHIP Recruiting

OBrienRourke O’Brien is in charge of Membership Recruiting and popped up to remind members that newcomers are the life blood of any organization. “Our power to recruit new members makes the BBRC the club that it is.” He asked that for the next five months, each member agrees to bring just one guest — someone who has a stake in the community and wants to give back. Go out and give it your best shot.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

To make a democracy work, we must be a nation of participants, not simply observers. One who does not vote has no right to complain.

THIS WEEK
Al Foxx received life-threatening injuries from an auto accident. He was told he’d never talk, walk or drive. He’ll do all three things when he appears this Friday morning to deliver his message: “Winners Don’t Quit.” Don’t miss this inspirational program. Bring a guest, or as Rourke admonished us last week, bring a potential member. We’re each responsible for bringing one guest during the next five months who might qualify for membership. A Glendale Breakfast at 7:00, meeting at 7:30 and program at 8:00.

Admin Corner
Thanks for the good work keeping your accounts up to date. The 1st and 3rd quarters are especially important because our semi-annual dues to Rotary International are paid at that time. We appreciate your timeliness.

On another matter, why not make February your month to update your Directory page? I’ll try to update mine, if you update yours! Here’s some good advice: to make a long story short, don't tell it!

And, the weekly favorite quote:
“The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.”
