Our speaker today was the general manager of the Utah Blaze, Steve Videtich. He gave us a history of the AFL and let us know about the upcoming season.

We welcomed two new members to our club. Mayor Dennis Fife and James Bull who is a manager at the Wal-Mart in Perry.

We raised just short of 1500.00 for the Haiti relief fund. That number will be matched by the club. If you are still interested in donating please contact Brad Barber.

Our speaker today was the new Dean at the Utah State University Brigham City Regional Campus. Tom Lee spoke about where the campus is, where it has come from, and where it is going.

In our meeting Tuesday, Jeff Packer extended a challenge to each Rotarian and to the Club regarding financial support for Haiti. If you go to the RI website, you can see the things RI and many Rotary Clubs are doing to assist there.

Jeff challenged all Rotarians to give through the charity of their choice, but then extended a specific challenge to Club members to donate through the Club and challenged the Club to match any funds donated through the Club.

The Club will match all donations made by Rotarians through thee Brigham City Rotary Club. We want to expedite this so please get with me or with Jodi McFall within the next week with your donation. Make the check payable to the Brigham City Rotary Club and write "For Haiti Relief" on the check. We will collect funds through Friday, Feb 12. Once we have collected all the donations, the Club will match that total and we will send the funds RI for direct disbursal to Haiti Relief efforts.

With that said, I have a donation of $100 that has been made along with a challenge from the donor to every Rotarian in the Club to match that amount. Obviously, we are looking for any amount, but it would be great to see a number of matches to that challenge.

Thanks for your time and support. It's great to be a part of making things happen!
