Rotary Rewind – July 31, 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.

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!

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! A sign-up is being distributed at meetings. You can also contact Tim Schauermann to get signed up. NOTE: This will be our weekly meeting, If you do not plan on golfing, please be at Sunset Grove at noon to enjoy lunch.

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.

Peace Village: This is the last week of registration 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 http://bit.ly/FGPV_App. For more information, contact Ali Hudson at fgpeacevillage@gmail.com.

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: Toni Loch, Family Justice Center of Washington County
Rotarian Toni Loch of the Beaverton Rotary Club, presented last week’s program on the Family Justice Center of Washington County. Toni is the executive director of the center, which opened in 2018.

The Family Justice Center of Washington County provides services to men, women and children who have been the victim of domestic violence. It’s goal is to provide as many services to victims under one roof, including crisis and safety planning, mental health services, housing assistance as well as legal assistance in helping to obtain restraining orders. The center has court services to speed the process of obtaining those orders as well as in-house detectives from the Hillsboro and Beaverton police departments as well as the Washington County Sheriffs Office.

Since opening, the Family Justice Center has served over 5,600 individuals, including a number from Forest Grove. A total of 56 individuals from our community have came in for help in obtaining restraining orders.

The Family Justice Center of Washington County helped fill a void in services. Centers had been started in Clackamas and Multnomah counties, but not in Washington. Of those who have utilized the center, 90 percent said that they were made aware of new resources and felt safer than they did when they came in.

To learn more about the center and its services, visit FJCWC.org.
