Tuesday July 17 - Summer Picnic

The annual Brigham City Rotary Summer Picnic was held Tuesday evening at the beautiful Rotary Constitution Park located at 500 East 700 South. The setting was ideal, the weather was fantastic and the company was some of the best around!

Fried Chicken, Hoagie Sandwiches, Salads, Chips, Drinks, Cookies and Brownies were all on the menu and were the perfect compliment to a great evening of fellowship.

Those who were unable to make it to the picnic missed out on a fun evening.

No meeting next week as it is July 24th, Pioneer Day.

See you on the 31st!

Tuesday July 10

Good crowd out to Rotary today, including guests and visitors. June Bywater came as a gust of Brad Barber and is interested in becoming a member of the club.

Sergeant at Arms Barber took a moment to bring members up to speed about his manner of keeping a high level of decorum at meetings.  A couple of fines ensued but the best is yet to come...

Our program was arranged by Past President Paul Damon.  He introduced Wendell Droubay who shared thoughts about patriotism. 

Included in his presentation was the story of Francis Scott Key and the writing of our National Anthem, the Star Spangled Banner.
He also shared some history of the Executive Seal of the USA, including the siginificance of the colors of the seal.

RED: Heartiness and Valor
WHITE: Purity and Innocence
BLUE: Vigilence, Perserverance and Justice

It was a wonderful and moving presentation.  We're grateful to Mr Droubay for taking time to share with us.

Next week there will be no noon meeting as we will met at Rotary Constitution park that evening for the Family Picnic at 6:30.  Bring your family and your appetite.

In two weeks there will also be no noon meeting as it is the July 24 - Pioneer Day Holiday.

Wow! It felt like the day before the 4th of July in Rotary today! I think most Rotarians were on vacation somewhere, taking an early day off for the holiday.

President Dan hansen conducted his first meeting as Club President today.

He welcomed visitor Jake Garn - Guest of Brent Gillies.

Thanks to everyone that came out and helped with the "Welcome to Brigham City" sign.  It is really looking nice.  The Rotary logo should be attached to the rock soon.

Rotarian Brent Gillies introduced the speakers today. Jeunelle Jeffries and Chandler Wilson of the Box Elder Boys and Girls club shared information withi us about the club and its mission here in Box Elder County.
Chandler, a senior at Bear River High School, is Club Member of the Year and shared her story of how the club has been a benefit to her and helped her find and reach for her potential as an individual.

The Boys and Girls Club provides services to over 1400 K - 12 youth throughout Box Elder County including 250 youth a day at the Bunderson Center in Brigham City.

We appreciate the presentation and continue to support the Boys and Girls club.

Next week we will hear a patriotic program provided by Wendell Droubay, arranged by Paul Damon.

The CLub family picnic will be held at Rotary Constitution Park on July 17th.  6:30 pm.

No meeting on Juy 24th.

Saturday June 30 - Rotary Work Day!

A group of Brigham City Rotarians showed up Saturday morning, June 30 and helped with landscaping and sod for the new "WELCOME TO BRIGHAM CITY" sign at 1100 South Main.

We got an early start and accomplished our task while the temperature was only in the low 80's.

Drive by and take a look!  It's really coming together and is a great addition to the south entrance to Brigham City.

Raking rocks is much harder than it looks!
(Felt like I was in my garden)

OK. We took a couple of breaks.

Keep those grins on, ladies!

The size of the rake made no difference.

Proof of the prevailing temperature.

Ready for the big landscape rocks and sod.

Jim Moore.  Project Engineer.

And the sod begins

What a good looking crew!
