Rotary Rewind – July 24, 2019

Posted By admin

Meeting At Pacific University Next Week: After a week away at Prime Time, we are returning to the Multi-Purpose Room at Pacific University for next Wednesday’s meeting.

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: Thank you to all club members who helped make the 2019 Concours d’Elegance another great success. The financial numbers are still coming in (and will be for a while), but it sounds like the returns are coming in well to support our community even more this year! The Concours committee wrap-up meeting will take place this Tuesday, 7 p.m., at the Forest Grove Chamber of Commerce office. All club members are invited to attend.

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!

Satellite Club Meeting: Our next Satellite Club Meeting and Thirsty Thursday is scheduled for Thurs., Aug. 15, 6:30 p.m., at David Hill Winery. All are welcome to attend.

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.

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.

To apply, either for a camper or to volunteer, visit For more information, contact Ali Hudson at

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.

Last Week’s Program: Kerri Willis, RYLA
We always enjoy hearing from our own club members as our program, especially when it involves a great Rotary program like RYLA. Kerri Willis, who recently joined our club, was one of two individuals that our club sponsored to go to RYLA this last month at the Menucha Retreat & Conference Center in the Columbia River Gorge. Kerri talked about how the week-long experience confirmed and reinforced who she as a person and how it changed her as she looks ahead in her professional and personal life. Like many who we send RYLA, Kerri said it was a life-changing experience for her.

Our club will be accepting applications for at least two more RYLA candidates next spring. To learn more about the program, visit
