September 29, 2014 – We are just plugging away, and it is hard to believe that it is the start of the fourth quarter already. Thanks to all who attended the meeting and for all the special guests we had at last Tuesday’s meeting. It is so nice that you are sharing the goodness of Rotary with others. I would encourage you to continue. Bring a guest and when you do you will be entered into a drawing for a nice prize at the end of the month.
Congratulations to our newest Red Badge members: Elise Hamner, Kara Long and Connie Stopher.
Elise is the Executive Director of Resource Development at Community College Foundation at Southwestern Oregon Community College Foundation. Kara is the Executive Director and Theatre Manager of the newly renovated Egyptian Theatre in Coos Bay. Connie is the Executive Director of the South Coast Development Council and has also been newly appointed to the Coos Bay Downtown Association. We are also happy to welcome Andrew Gordon and Chris Gedrose who recently fulfilled the “Red Badge Requirements” and have received their Blue Badges. Welcome to Rotary!
Finally, I want to thank our Program Committee for a fantastic job they are doing to enhance our meetings. Providing interesting or newsworthy topics is a goal for this Rotary year. We figure if you’re going to take time away from your busy schedule, you should have a nice lunch and topics that inform, educate or entertain. Thanks to Ron Stillmaker, Timm Slater, Kathy Erickson, Chris Von Lobedon, Dick Leshley and Clark Walworth who have stepped up to help. If you would like to assist this committee just let me know. There are still opportunities.
See you Tuesday. Yours in Rotary Service,
Stephanie Kilmer, President
