Tuesday, May 22

Last week, May 15th, Malone Molgard arranged for USU Athletic Director Scott Barnes to speak to us.

He addressed us about the various athletic programs and some of the excitement for the future of USU athletics.

Thanks to everyone that participated in the Eagle View Trails project at Mantua Dam on Saturday.  We had about 12 from the club wielding picks, hoes, shovels and rakes helping dig new bike trails for the project.  This is a great project and we will look to be involved again in the fall.

Today was our semi annual clean up at Constitution Park. We had a few Rotarians in attendance that made a sweep of the park and gave it a good once over.

Next week, Bob Davis has arranged to have Richard "Smitty" Smith of the Utah Jazz speak to us.

In two weeks the program is arranged by Ann Henderson.

My apologies for being blatantly absent again for a couple of weeks.  One of these days I need to get someone to fill in while I'm out. 

Today's meeting started out with a couple of visitors.  Brad Barber brought Ross Stanton, Assistant Manager of Brigham City Zions Bank.  Bruce Vellinga brought Brandon Broadhead.  Great to have the two of you visiting with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Eve Jones shared some great news regarding grant money received to help improve the bike trail above Mantua resevoir.  She then challenged Rotarians to join a group that will be spending time on the trail on May 19.  Bring your working gloves as well as shovels, rakes, grubbing hoes and picks to help extend the trail.  This will be a great local project to put our muscle into.

Also, Tere Moore talked about the literacy project that will be taking place as part of thee Mexico Service Project trip this year. We are loking to provide books for a school library in Peurto PeƱasco mexico this June.  Anyone interested in helping out by donating boks, school supplies or money, please conatct Tere Moore or Brad Barber!

Rotarian Bob Davis introduced our speaker, Mike Sanford, Assistant Head Football Coach at Utah State University. Coach Stanford shared consdierable information about the football program at USU and the positive outlook for the program as they move into the Mountain West Conference.

Mike has a long and distinguished coaching career spanning 34 years and including a number of prestigious schools: Army, Purdue, USC, Notre Dame, Stanford, U of U, UNLV U of Louisville as well as some time with the San Diego Chargers.  He is now working closely with Coach Greg Andersen with our own Utah State Aggies!

We appreciate Coach Stanford and his presentation today.

We had a great turnout to the 5K 10K run around the dam in Mantua. Aproximately 68 runners/walkers and others took occasion to make the trek and participate, raising funds for the Brigham City Fine Arts Center and Boys & Girls Club.

A big thanks goes out to Dan Hansen and Malone Molgard for their hard work and to all the Rotarians that came up to the dam and helped make this years run/walk a success.

What a perfect location for a great benefit run!

Now, if we can double the number of participants again next year....
