The Friday Program:
The largest group of attendees for this premiere holiday event took almost every seat, as the BBRC celebrated the season with the annual Holiday Breakfast. With an anticipated attendance of 138 adults and 38 children, the Glendale dining room was hopping.
Arriving in the pitch black of a December morning, the kids were outfitted in their best holiday duds accompanied by smiling parents or grandparents bent on getting some pictures as they schmoozed with these little people.
With a greeting by President Norm Johnson, the program got underway after a luscious meal prepared by the experts in the Glendale kitchen. Scrambled eggs, Eggs Benedict, blintzes, bacon and sausage, lots of bakery items and fresh fruit, and juices ... a table set for a fine group of Rotarians and their guests.
Chuck Barnes, President #12, delivered the invocation and led the pledge to the flag. President Norm greeted all visitors and welcomed them back to any future meeting.
With Chip Erickson doing his magic at the piano, John Mix led the crowd in the singing of a single verse of Deck the Halls. It was almost over before it started! Next year, two verses! READ MORE
