A continuing reminder that if you haven’t already, please register your attendance type for Friday’s meeting through Jack Massari’s email link sent out on Monday. …and please do remember to register each and every week for the foreseeable future as getting an accurate meal count for meetings remains very important (but has also proven very difficult) in today’s environment.
Last week, we had the pleasure of hearing from new Vanderbilt Commodore football coach, Clark Lea. He shared his clear vision to take the Vanderbilt football program to the next level of excellence by being the best physically and mentally conditioned football team in the county. With coach Lea’s new energy and focus, it’ll be exciting to track the progress of Vanderbilt’s program over the coming years.
This week, we welcome Jeanene Hupy, founder of Comfort Connections. Jeanene first got involved in a comfort dog program when she lived in Connecticut shortly after the Sandy Hook tragedy when she became a handler for one of the 14 golden retrievers used to comfort the students when they returned to school. Today, with Comfort Connections – Nashville, Jeanene works with her dogs to teach and equip children and adults with the skills to create compassionate connections in order to awaken empathy and comfort to those who are hurting and isolated.
Two additional important and time sensitive reminders of things that were announced during last week’s meeting:
#1) If you are interested in attending Roger Wheelwright’s services at Arlington National Cemetery at 9:00 am on July 14, please email Keely ASAP at so that we can get a headcount/list of names to Irene.
#2) The Brentwood Historic Commission is sponsoring an American History Bowl for adults on Sunday, August 8 at the Brentwood Library. If you are interested in being a part of a Rotary Club of Brentwood team, please email Keely (again at to let me know of your interest by Monday, April 19.

2020 Rotary Golf Classic - A Success!

2020 Rotary Golf Classic

Declared a Success!

On September 21, 124 golfers gathered on a beautiful sun splashed day at the Brentwood Country Club to compete in the 4th annual Rotary Golf Classic. Assisted by 17 Rotary Club members working the event under the leadership of Suzie Lindsey, everyone had a fun day and the tournament was a financial success for the club’s foundation. For the 3rd year, LBMC was our presenting Sponsor and their contribution makes the tournament work, they’ve been a great partner for us. 

In a year with many unknowns, the club members were able to sell 176 sponsorships which totaled in excess of $ 115,000. After expenses for the tournament, the BRCCF saw a net profit of $ 82,000 which will be used to fund Grants to local and other organizations around the world. Our Funding Partners this year, Graceworks Ministries, Saddle Up!, and BrightStone will each receive a generous donation for their ongoing, good work in our community.

With Michael Kaplan leading his Sales Team with personal sales of $ 10,550 (14 Sponsors), the Kaplan Team set a new Team Sales record of $ 18,330! Congratulations to Michael and his team for a sensational effort. Jennifer Bourne’s team finished 2nd, but also eclipsed the prior team sales record with sales of $ 12,700 – great job Bourne Team!!

We look forward to next year with new ideas and plans knowing that this event has yet to reach it true potential as a fund raiser for our club. Come be a part next year and join the fun!
