Tue Jan 25th

It was another great day for Rotary,
in spite of the snow!

We received a thank you letter from the
Box Elder Interact Club
after providing them a pizza party after they
collected double the amount the Rotary Club collected
in our Pinkies for Polio Challenge.
Great job, Interactors!!

We inducted two new Rotarians today.

Jeff Scott who works in Financial Planning

and Dr Randy Capener a local dentist
and son of Rotarian Jerry Capener.

Both shared a brief introduction and are excited
to be new members and ready to participate in the Rotary Club.

Rae Riser treated us to fellowship along with
birthday greetings sung to Larry Boyer and Les Dunn

Rotarian Jodi McFall received a plaque of appreciation
for her pledge to the Rotary Foundation as a Benefactor.

Sergeant-at-Arms Larry Boyer took the opportunity
to hear from various club members about why they joined Rotary.
It was enlightening and a great opportunity to hear the stories
that have brought members into the club.

Assistant Governor Steve Skinner presented a club history
and talked about a continuation of the Polio Plus Challenge
including information about the Centennial Celebration torch run
which will be held leading up to the Distrcit Conference in May.

We wish to give a big thank you to AG Skinner for the help

and support he has provided our club while he has served

as Assistant District Governor.

Tuesday, Jan 18 - Dr Ryan Larsen

We heard a presentation from Dr Ryan Larsen
about the new development now under construction
on 500 West, South of the hospital.

I'm sorry that I was unable to attend
due to a small water issue in my basement.
I would love to get an update from someone in attendance
so I can post the details on the blog.

Mon, Jan 17th

Monday evening, at 7:00 pm,
we had a number of Rotarians, Interactors and their parents
attend a special presentation about the
Familes Helping Families project scheduled for this June
in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico.

Youth and adults from across the state have been invited
to participate in the house building project being spearheaded
by the Familes Helping Families foundation.

Mike Wells, the Utah Rotary District New Generations Chair and
Jared Parker from Families Helping Familes Foundation
presented information and details of the proposed project.

The projest is scheduled for June 11 through June 18, 2011.
Youth and adults from our club are invited to share their time
and abilities to help build a house for a family in need
in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico.

There was a lot of interest,
with a number of Rotarians and youth already committed to go.

Sat Jan 15 - All Clubs Centennial Celebration

Brigham City Club had a great turn out for the All Clubs Centennial Celebration.
About 17 Brigham City Rotarians were in attendance
and enjoyed an evening of good food and great entertainment.

Mark Eaton, former Utah Jazz player,
shared his philosophy for being great at what you do.

Jenny Froggley and Alex Boyé wowed us with their music,
many birthday wishes were shared with the Salt Lake City Club
and numerous awards and recognitions were provided
to Rotarians from across the state.

If you missed the evening, you missed out on a special treat!

Tuesday, January 4th

Welcome back, Rotarians!
It was good to be back at Rotary
for food, fellowship and a great program!

Rae Riser played "catch up" after the holidays
with a long list of Rotarian family accomplishments.
What a great job she does keeping track
of Rotarians and their families in the news!

Congratulations to Larry Boyer, Sargeant-at-Arms.
Not only did he benefit the Foundation
with a round of "PIN" fines.
But he was the first and only Rotarian
to catch the "challenge" on the blog page.
$10.00 will be donated to Polio Plus in Larry's name
by Brad Barber, Web/Blogmaster.
Keep watching. There will be more opportunities to "win"!

Lunch was delicious, as always. Thanks to the Hospital ladies
for taking such good care of us!

Our program was presented by Carrie Romano
of Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Carrie provided a great overview of the RMH Carities
and how they specifically benefit children from
our local area.
She also shared information about one of their fund raisers,
"Pull the Top - Make the Drop"
Collection of soda can pop tops provides a continuous
source of revenue for the charity
and each of us can help by collecting and donating
pop tops to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Ann Henderson keeps a jar at her office
that is continually being refilled by staff and students
at the USU Extension.
She'd be happy to collect your pop tops
each week at Rotary to add to the fund.
Remember: No Meeting Next Week
All Rotarians and guests are invited to the
All Clubs Celebration in Salt Lake City
on January 15th 6:00 to 8:00 pm
at the UofU Union Building.
Make Eaton, Jenny Frogley and Alex Boyé
will be entertaining us for the evening.
Come join us for a wonderful evening of
great food and entertainment.
