The annual Club Steak Fry was held last evening at the home of Rotarian Dave Lewis.  The food and fellowship were so good, I forgot to take any pictures!

We had a good crowd in attendance but not as many as there should have been.

Special guests included:

LouAnn Thompson and her husband.  LouAnn is the BE Interact Club Advisor at the High School.
Brian and Sherry Sandlian. Their son Paul is currently in Brazil as a foreign exchange student from Brigham City.
Oscar! Our foreign exchange student from Sweden.

We were very excited to have these individuals enjoying the evening with us!

Just a reminder:  Meeting next week is on WEDNESDAY instead of Tuesday!!

Tuesday Aug 6 - Club Assembly

We met today in club assembly and discussed a number of business items. 

One of the important items was a discussion of the Peach Days float and the need to seriously consider an upgrade to the float.  We have been pulling the float in the Peach days parade for many years, and have recently begun sharing it with the Ogden Club.  But time has not been kind to it, thus the need for the upgrade.

It was decided that the float committee will do some sprucing up this year and then take seriously the prospect of a complete overhaul next year, possibly with help from surrounding clubs, offering them the opportunity to use it in their local parades.

Along those lines, we were presented with the Peach Days Raffle tickets in preparation for the big fund raiser.  Only four weeks till Peach Days and lots of tickets to sell!

If you didn't make it to Rotary today, get in touch with Dan Price to pick up your allotment of tickets and get busy selling.

A reminder was made of upcoming meetings:

* Rotarians and Sons next week with Robby Gunther, Box Elder High School football coach

* Special membership meeting in two weeks with Brad and Annette Barber presenting on our service trip to Puerto PeƱasco Mexico last month - Remember to invite a non-Rotarian to meeting and invite them to join the club

* In three weeks will be our annual Club Steak Fry at Rotarian Dave Lewis' home.  Always lots of good food and fellowship.

Hope to see each of you soon at any and all of the above events!

Annual Club Picnic

Our annual Brigham City Rotary Club picnic was held Tuesday July 30th at Rotary Constitution Park. We had a few Rotarians and families at the park and everyone enjoyed lots of food and fellowship.
Hope we can figure out how to make this a better attended event in the future!
