IN THIS ISSUE:
Agros Kick Off
Plans are underway for the Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club to continue its support of the Agros Foundation, helping the families of the village of Xeucalvitz, Guatemala. Steve Lingenbrink, who has teamed with Mike Hyodo on a couple of International projects, has chosen Agros and the work this organization does in Central America to lift families out of poverty. The Agros model is not a hand-out, rather it is a United Nations Award-winning model that enables entire villages to overcome poverty, said Steve. Xeucalvitz will be the 21st village that Agros has transformed, proving the model is accomplishing what no one else has been able to do.
A special showing of art, champagne, chocolate and coffee will be held at the Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery, 127 Lake Street South in Kirkland on Wednesday, February 11th at 6:00 p.m. Lingenbrink and crew will be there to explain why the support for Agros is so important. The BBRC teams with the Guatemala City Rotary Club in this project. At the Kirkland function, youll be able to agree to sponsor families, help buy land for the village or even go on the next Vision trip to the village.
The Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery is also featuring for the month of February, the work of Seattle artists, writer and illustrator Debbie Tomassi. She is the author of hundreds of humorous greeting cards for several major card and marketing companies. Her current card company is Recycled Paper Products of Chicago and her work can be seen through licensed images at Microsoft, Kinkos and Target. The February show revolves around her new work entitled Valentines Give from the Heart.
