Newberg Noon Rotary Club Newsletter for May 8, 2019
Always pleasant Dr. Stan Kern was our GREETER today!
Back at the Cultural Center, President Om opened the meeting with a somewhat somber welcome, asking Walter Want to lead us in the Pledge.
President Om reminded us of the recent passing of long-time Newberg Rotarian and citizen-extraordinaire, Ken Austin, Jr. His book, “American Dreamers” memorializes the lives of Ken and his wife, Joan.
Fred offered a heart-felt prayer, and moment of silence, in memory of Ken & Joan.
Non-revenue-generating announcements included:
Spike reminded us that Pancake Breakfast sponsorships are now open: Pavilion Sponsor/$1,500 [one available at this level]; Beverage Sponsor/$500 [one available at this level]; Griddle Sponsor/$250 [eight available at this level]; Table Sponsor/$50 [unlimited number available at this level!]. Sponsorships’ checks to be payable to: Rotary Club of Newberg Early Birds.
Leah reminded us that advanced ticket sales by our members go to our club…whereas day-of-event sales and sponsorships go to a common pool, then are re-distributed.
Tony asked about on-line sponsorship payments…”In the works”…per Spike.
A request was made for RYLA [Rotary Youth Leadership Awards] applicants, as we have NONE now….and RYLA camp is coming up in July!
