Bruce Edwards to share Japan trip highlights


Pretty sure this was the first leg of the trip to Japan.

We’re looking forward to our club philosopher and humorist sharing photos and stories from his recent Japan trip. Bruce’s humor and wit will make this a fun and memorable program. President Jim promises either he or Lynn Edwards will dress up as a Geisha girl. Don’t miss Rotary this week!

First undercover photos ever of Seattle NE Rotary board meeting

Our undercover reporters secured hitherto unseen photos of the usually secret Seattle NE Rotary board meeting. At the meeting, held at plush law offices in a building north of Seattle, topics ranged from the treasurer’s report to the secretary’s report.

Also among topics discussed was Bingo Karaoke, which remains one of North Seattle’s biggest secrets. The new program is so secret that no one will be impacted by cancellation of the October session.

The board is aiming at Nov 19 for Thanksgiving and Dec 17 for Christmas basket assembly with the scouts. Also discussed were which club meetings to cancel for the holidays and when to have the club’s Christmas party.

Highlight of the meeting was the Social Media report, which held rapt attention of the members. Afterward, the board breezed through other, less interesting items.

Get ready for a Darling meeting this Thursday

m800096778We’re excited to welcome our District Governor, Bo Darling, at this week’s club meeting. Bo is tired of the usual District Governor’s presentation, so he promises we’ll have a very different and more interesting District Gov presentation this Thursday. It’s certain to be Darling!

Born in Houston, TX, Bo actually grew up in New York City. His college career included both Yale University (Industrial Administration) and Oklahoma State University (Mechanical Engineering).  Bo was with the Linde/Praxair Division of Union Carbide, in the integrated steel and chemical arenas., for 37 years.

After spending many years racing sailboats, he met Patti, who was on the Unlimited Hydroplane Medical Team.  Impressed by both, they married and he joined the Organization.

Bo and Patricia are members of the Rotary Club of Mercer Island Club, where he has served as President, Vice President and multi-year Director of the annual Half-marathon, the Club’s major fund-raiser.
