This week we had a Banner Day for our local Funeral Home, Haven of Rest.  Our Rotarian Brie Smith brought her employer Haven of Rest into the Club as a Corporate Member.  Corporate Officers Jake Miller and Diego Patlan became Rotarians along with Brie, and the Club was very pleased to welcome them aboard.  
Brie then presented her Classification talk, revealing the interesting path she took to becoming a Funeral Director.  A Montanan by birth, Brie helper her Cosmetologist Mom working part-time at a local funeral home, and was attracted to the business that way.  She's had a very interesting career, moving all around the West before finally landing in the PACNW, meeting her husband and settling down here in Gig Harbor, where we're extremely happy to have her as a Midday Rotarian.  Following up on her talk, Brie, Diego and Jake then gave us a tag-team briefing on the history of Haven of Rest and some fascinating details about the Mortuary business.  It was a very interesting presentation, closely followed by every one of us - who all expect to need their services sooner or later!
