Four visiting Rotarians: DG Mike Proctor, Judy Hosea, Scott Seitz ADG, and Kim Laramie.
Scott Junge introduced much of his family; Mike Davis introduced the new chief.
Announcements: Stan Eastberg, Rotary Foundation chair, introduced our new Rotary Foundation Paul Harris Fellows, assisted by DG Michael Proctor: Dorothy Wimberly, Ron Roberts +2, Ed Worthen +2, Jim Goode +3 Bob Heacox +4. Scott Junge honored his mother Sophia as Paul Harris Fellow, and she was quite pleased!
Marcia Harris announced that we have nominated a ROTARY WOMAN OF ACTION. Just found out this week, so we have been scrambling to get our nomination in. It is a tribute to our board that we got it in on such short notice. Our nominee is Superior Court Judge Vicki Hogan. Nominated by Jim Thomas.
Betty Felker announced that Tacoma Narrows Rotary is holding a Polo Match fundraiser August 23. She has posters and flyers. Betty is trying to get a group together. Call her if you are interested.
Exchange student: Mary Grubbs. Simon Camargo is coming in tomorrow night from Columbia. He will be staying with Al Abbott.
Tom Borgen introduced Mike Henry who spoke about our newest fundraiser with the First Annual Clearance Sale Extravaganza. We will receive 10%, and we are only asked us to promote, not volunteer. Great opportunity.
Mayor Jill Guernsey presented charter member Al Bucholz with a proclamation from the city honoring our club on its 40th birthday.
Mike Davis presented the Golden Plunger award to Al Bucholz. He is the second winner, (Jim Castino was the first, for the snafu at the HH Museum a few years ago) for protecting his home from a sewage pump failure. Seems the north end of town is “blessed!” Al lives just a few doors down from the museum.
Raffle: 10 free next week to Tom Borgen. Duane Fister drew the white chip.
Chris Myers is finemaster.
Scott Seitz introduced Mike Procter, District 5020 Governor. He has been a car dealer, a mayor, and a sports car racer. He gave the usual rousing DG speech.
There are two new web based options for Rotarians: E Clubs, and Aps for your iphone.
E Clubs are web based meetings that you can attend for makeups as well as just extending your Rotary knowledge.
Click on E Clubs to go to a website showing all of the international sites. You can select United States (hit search again) and get just the 8 US E Clubs.
Also available are two aps for iphone, one from clubrunner, and one from Rotary. Either will find local clubs and meeting times, but the Clubrunner is really neat in that once you sign in (same sign in and password as for our club website) you have instant access to our member list and contact info, including pictures, and to all the stories on the main page. Just search for Rotary in your Ap Store Ap. Call or email me if you need help. Tim Williams, email@example.com, 253-591-7088.
