David Bobanick, Executive Director of Rotary First Harvest, will speak about how RFH distributes surplus produce and other food items to food banks around the Northwest. Originally founded in our District, it has become a model for other Districts around the USA. This is one of the finest projects under the umbrella of District 5030. Learn more about it and bring an interested guest. Breakfast at 7:00, meeting at 7:30 and program at 8:00 a.m. this Friday morning at the Glendale Country Club.

We’re into the final month of the current (1st) quarter and we’d like those pesky dues to be paid on schedule. If you don’t know the amount, consult with the Cashier. You may send a check to BBRC, PO Box 3003, Bellevue, WA 98009-3003; or bring the check and give it to the cashier; or use the credit card machine and apply your dues in that fashion.

Some men complete their educations by going into business ... but most marry.

Hard Worker Judy Honored

x0905JudyChrisNot all the people working to expand the impact of the Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club throughout our community are members of the club. Chris Monger made sure the club was aware of the work of Judy Sievanen, who has coordinated setting up the raffle selling sites the last 4-5 years. “Judy has stayed in the background and out of the limelight, but has taken this project and made it work for us.” Judy and Chris work together at Palmer, Groth and Pietka in Seattle. She received a lovely bouquet of flowers in recognition of her dedication to this project. Thanks, Judy!




We Get Emails

(Chris Monger received this email from our former Exchange Student, Maria “Sol.” As you can see, she’s trying to get back into the swing of things in her native Argentina.)

Hey, Chris! It’s me, Sol! I write to say that I’m doing ok in my country again, and that it’s really hard to get used again to the things (that I left behind) but I’m trying hard. My East coast trip was really awesome and I had a great time. I did a lot of shopping in New York and New Jersey. I hope everything is ok over there and I want to thank Rotary and you again for all the things you guys did. Hope to keep in touch.
