Rotary Rewind – July 17, 2019
Posted By admin
If you didn’t make it to this week’s Rotary Club of Forest Grove meeting, here is what you missed.
Meeting At Prime Time Next Week: We will be at Prime Time for our meeting on Wed., July 24. Prime Time is at 4450 Pacific Avenue in Forest Grove.
Meal Prices Increasing: With the change of food service providers from Aramark to Bon Appetit, our price for meals at our weekly Wednesday meetings will be going up. While we understand the increase is inconvenient for some, we believe that the club will be rewarded with better food and better service. The meal prices moving forward are as follows…
Regular Members: $14 per meal (up from $12). Quarterly billings for meals will go up to $175 per quarter (from $150).
Pay As You Go: $16 per meal (up from $14).
Visiting Rotarians & Guests: $17
Concours d’Elegance: Our annual Concours d’Elegance is here! Make sure you are planning on being in Forest Grove on Saturday and Sunday as we put on one of the best Concours-level car shows in the world! The show takes place on Sun., Jul 21 on the campus of Pacific University and is our club’s primary fundraiser of the year. The majority of the proceeds go to support our scholarship program. You can learn more about this year’s show at forestgroveconcours.org. All club members are expected to help with the show on Saturday and Sunday.
An email with a number of details about the Concours was sent out to club members on Thursday. If you have questions about committee assignments, please contact Ken Cunningham.
Concours After Party: After all is cleaned up and put away from Concours, Rotarians and their families are invited to the annual Concours after party at the home of Coni Ingram. The after party is scheduled to begin at approximately 6 p.m. or whenever the clean-up is done on the Pacific University campus.
District Governor Visit Postponed: Our visit from District Governor Diane Noriega has been postponed until Wed., Sept. 11.
Steak Feed: If you have not turned in money for sales of Steak Feed tickets, or still have tickets on hand, you need to turn either in as soon as possible so that we can reconcile the books for the event. Billing for tickets not accounted out went out over the last week. If you have questions in regards to Steak Feed tickets and money, contact Marge Johnston.
Golf Tournament: The annual club Golf Tournament will be on Wed., Aug. 21, at the Sunset Grove Golf Course. Mark the date, come out and have fun!
Forest Grove Summer Meals Program – Help Needed: At our May 22 meeting, Rotarian Rudy Tinoco spoke to the volunteer need for the Forest Grove Summer Meals program that is being coordinated through Old Town Church Forest Grove. Working with the Forest Grove School District, Summer Meals is a federally funded program that ensures all children up to age 18 meet their nutritional needs. Meals are served Monday through Friday, 12 to 12:30 p.m., from June 17 to August 16 at parks around Forest Grove and Cornelius. It is estimated that the program serves thousands of meals to children in our area each week. For some children, it may be their only meal of the day.
To learn more about the program or to sign up to volunteer, please visit communityconnectionwest.org/summer-lunch-program.
Peace Village: Registration is now open for Forest Grove’s first Peace Village camp, which is being co-sponsored by our club and the Forest Grove Daybreak Rotary Club. The camp, open to youth entering grades 6-9, takes place from Tues., Aug. 13 to Fri., Aug. 16, and will take place at the Forest Grove United Church of Christ and on the Pacific University campus. The cost of the camp is $135 per camper with scholarships available.
There is also still a need for volunteers who want to assist with the groups and for instructing during the camp. Lunch & snacks will be provided to all volunteer.
The project is a joint between our Rotary Club and the Forest Grove Daybreak Rotary Club. If you are interested in learning more or getting involved in the planning process, see Loren Waltz, or Howard Sullivan. To learn more about Peace Village, Visit Their Website.
District 5100 International Service Committee: The District 5100 International Service Committee will have their first meeting of the year on Wed., Aug. 21, 4 p.m., at the District 5100 Office in Beaverton. The purpose of the meeting is to broaden the participation in global grants, create more opportunities for collaboration, share project ideas and resources, share success stories and build partnerships so that any club who wants to participate in international service, at whatever the level, will have a way to do that. If you cannot participate in person, a Zoom Meeting connection is available. For more information, contact President Tim Pearson.
Have A Program Idea?: If you have an idea for a program or would like to present something yourself, let our program chair, Julia Kollar, know. She will also have a program planning board at meetings so you can see what is on deck and what dates may be available.
