Vol. 17, No. 26, December 27, 2004
Another holiday this week means no regular meeting of the BBRC. Friday is New Years Eve Day and becomes a holiday for Rotary. Well begin anew next week on January 7th with an off-site meeting at Sammamish High School. This will be the first time for our club to view the remodeling project underway for the past year at SHS. Principal Spencer Welch will tell us about the changes. Remember, that Glendale is closed from January 1 until January 13. We return to Glendale on Friday, January 14.
Board of Directors Will Meet
The BBRC Board of Directors will meet at the offices of Hellam Veron CPAs, at 1750 112th Avenue NE, Suite #E200. This is the site of the former Benson-McLaughlin CPA office (known as Hidden Valley Office Park) and is the southern-most office of that large complex. Meeting begins at 7:00 am, Tuesday, January 11, hosted by Margie Burnett.

Not only does the tax year come to a close Friday, but Rotarys Second Quarter also closes the same day. This is significant for two reasons:
1) the club depends on the membership to keep their accounts current, for these are the funds that pay for on-going operations. If your account is not current, please remit by check to BBRC, PO Box 3003, Bellevue, WA 98009-3003. A final visit to the PO Box will be made Friday morning, December 31 to pick up any last-minute deposits.
2) December 31 is also the final day of Rotary Internationals Semi-Annual Reporting. Twice each year, all of the clubs in Rotary submit reports of membership numbers. These numbers trigger the amount of money the BBRC sends to RI for Semi-Annual Dues. With our membership at 114, that figure will be used to calculate how much the BBRC owes RI. Included in the billing are the semi-annual dues @ $17.50 per member and a semi-annual subscription to the Rotarian magazine @ $6.00 per member. The invoice ranges between $2800 to $3200, with the higher amount billed on July 1 to include a levy for the Council of Legislation ($1.00 per year/member) and an annual liability insurance assessment for US clubs only ($3.70 per year/member).
In addition, clubs are assessed a levy each July at the rate of $32.50 per member to fund operations of the District.

THIS WEEK'S EDITOR
THIS WEEK'S PHOTOGRAPHER(S)
Yassir, That's Jimmy the K
Last week, the BBRC's own Jim Kindsvater, aka Jimmy the K, played a shepard in performances at his church. Jim, who sings bass in the choir, made the mistake of commenting, "You oughta see me in my Yassir Arafat hat and tunic. Skirts really are kinda breezy aren't they? I can see why you girls switched to pants." Putting his money where is mouth is, Jimmy the K produced this photo for Reveille publication.

WEBGRUNT SAYS: "I GUESS MEMPHIS AIN'T FAR ENOUGH SOUTH"
Even Memphis, TN, had it's share of snow and ice last week. Cold enough that one good push can send a kid on a snow disk all the way across the backyard.
