from Past Prez Dan,
Take me out to the ballgame….  After a rousing rendition of that 7th inning stretch favorite, Midday Rotary welcomed Chris Aubertin as our speaker July 23rd.
Chris is Group Sales Manager for We R Tacoma, the organization that manages Tacoma Rainiers AAA baseball, Tacoma Defiance, the development team for the Seattle Sounders, and new this year, the Reign FC.  Reign FC, with US National Women’s Soccer Team captain Megan Rapinoe leading the Reign, is a member of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL).
Cheney Stadium is the now the home field for the Reign.  Chris shared the excitement of Tacoma having a NWSL team, and told us about plans now underway to build a new dedicated soccer stadium for the Reign and Defiance next to Cheney Stadium.
Each year the Rotary Clubs of Pierce County hold a Rotary at the Rainiers event at Cheney Stadium.  This year the Rotary night is scheduled for Thursday, August 15.
REMINDER – Tuesday, July 30th is a 5th Tuesday, and there will not be a regular Club meeting.  Instead Club members are all invited to join in a Club Social at Rotary at the Rainiers, August 15.  Tickets for the tailgate and game are free to club members.
