Inspirational Moment
President Steve enlightened us with an inspirational moment around the 86,400 seconds we have every day.
  • Volunteers needed to make crosses for the Kirkland Cemetery. The date is Saturday, April 28 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  The location is 1129 8th Street just north of the Pacific Pride fueling station.  Bring work gloves.
  • Miracle League had a wonderful first weekend and volunteers are still needed for this coming Saturday.
  • The picture board that describes our Club is almost ready for District Conference this weekend.  A picture after the meeting of all the scholarship winners will be included on the board.
  • The May 14 Golf Tournament may turn into an evening at the Flat Stick Pub, so more details to follow.
  • The Bellevue Breakfast Club desperately needs volunteers for their Saturday Run for Autism fundraiser.  If you are interested, check the Bellevue Breakfast Club’s website for more details.
Tonight the Club honored the students from our local schools with scholarships.  Club members introduced the winners, praising them and their parents for the great achievements in their lives so far. Eight scholarships worth $1,000 each will be given to the student’s school of choice.
President Steve adjourned the meeting at 7:25 PM with his usual humorous comment.
