Our District Training Assembly was held this past Saturday up at West Linn High School. It was great to see people from other clubs whom I have met over the years, as well as a few of our local club presidents. It was heartening to see so many people focused on making their club better.
Congratulations to Kevin Mannix, who was presented with a Paul Harris Fellow pin +6 for his contributions to The Rotary Foundation last Friday. Don’t forget that you can sign up for monthly donations to TRF — even a small contribution is welcome!
Last Friday’s luncheon was attended by some special guests. We had members of our local fire departments on hand to talk about the pallets of medical supplies they will be shipping down to Nogales, Mexico for the emergency response teams there. We also had Roberto, his wife and daughter from Nogales visit us. They performed a puppet show at Waldo on Thursday to demonstrate how children should react to a fire. The show was well received by the students; it is a show that Roberto has performed for many students in Mexico and the States and has led to a huge decrease in child deaths in fires. Erik Larson presented the family with gifts from the Made in Oregon store in thanks for their work.
Don’t forget our Rotary at Work day this coming Saturday at La Placita! I’ll see you there!
