IMPORTANT REMINDER TO VOTE!
 
If you have not already done so, please take this opportunity to cast your vote on the proposed $75,000 grant toward the inclusive playground project (click here for the link to vote.) As is explained in that voting link page, any grant from the Brentwood Rotary Club Charitable Foundation in excess of $20,000 requires ratification by the total club membership. So your vote is needed! …and if you have any questions or concerns about this proposed grant, feel free to contact any or all of: Larry Kain (BRCCF President), Sarah Johnson (Proposer of the grant in question), or myself. Any of us would be happy to field whatever questions you may have.
 
A very special thank you to Michael Hindman for leading our table talks program last week as well as presiding over the meeting in my absence. …For these five long days since, I have chosen to ignore the myriad and incessant calls for my unconditional resignation and Michael’s immediate re-appointment as Club President.
 
This Friday, you will be treated to yet another group of people who are far more entertaining than I. This week is our annual 4 Way Test Speech Contest! This has quickly grown to be one of my favorite programs of the year as we get a chance to hear from some of the smartest and most gifted high school students in our community – and I dare say our entire state! These students will be giving speeches based on the Rotary 4 Way Test and will be competing for a cash prize as well as an opportunity to move on to the District 6760 competition where they can compete for even more prizes. This is definitely a meeting you don’t want to miss!
 
We continue to meet in our hybrid format with a pre-registered group of us meeting in person (but masked and socially distant) at the SpringHill Suites while those who prefer will still be able to join via Zoom. And remember that if you’d like to attend in person, we do need you to register through the link that Jack Massari e-mailed out Tuesday morning.

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!
