Thanks to Jane Kirby and her sister for donating the $20 they won from the calendar raffle. Dave Ryals also donated his winnings. 1.) Clarence announced that there is a Rotary golf tournament in Colville, WA, so get in touch with him if you are interested in participating. 2.) The Fry Healthcare Foundation Golf Tournament here in Bonners will be coming soon, so we need to be thinking about fielding a team. 3.) Glory Rossbacher, FRG Chair, has asked for help in compiling a comprehensive list of people who would be willing to donate skills to families when their soldier is deployed overseas. Contact Clarence (or Kathryn) to add your name and skills to the list. 4.) The Rotary dinner will be held at KRI on June 12. Cost is $25 per person. Contact Clarence to reserve your spot. 5.) It is time to sign up for the Rotary committees for next year. Sign up sheets will be available at the meetings. 6.) Clarence is chairing the Kootenai River Ride this year and he is asking for committee members and volunteers to assist him. Give him a call if you can help out. 7.) We enjoyed meeting the Junior Miss winners and hearing from them on what the Junior Miss experience meant to them. We got a special thank you from Charena Branscum for Rotary's sponsorship of her. See you next Tuesday!
