Today’s Speaker: Michael Sipes (Classification Talk) – “Amazing talk”….
   Michael Sipes,  works in Newberg for Edwards Jones, has a strong faith/heart for community…and helping others.  He gave an amazing presentation…providing/authorizing the following information:   “I was born in Spain to a military family. I’ve lived in Germany, Las Vegas, Spokane and Florida. I joined the Air Force after high school where I was stationed in Florida. After the military, I owned and operated a Tattoo Studio for 10 years. It was there that I met my wife and we decided to move back to the Northwest. I was attending Multnomah Bible College pursuing a Masters in Christian Leadership when I applied to work at Edward Jones. Last year, my wife and I had our first baby, our daughter Audrey. I’ve now been at Edward Jones for 3 years and I am looking forward to building my business here in Newberg and serving the community.”

    One of the best ways to get to know Michael, your other fellow Rotarians…and especially the newest club members, is simply to sit with them at lunch and just chat!  Thanks, Michael, for your very informative Classification Talk!

  Prez Corey relieving Michael of his name badge’s Red Ribbon signifying that he has completed the New Member requirements!

Program for August 14, will be back at “home”…the Chehalem Cultural Center…and the speaker: Sean Andries will give his Classification Talk.

As President Corey closed the meeting…we are reminded of Rotary’s Four Way Test of the things we think, say or do:
First – Is it the TRUTH?
Second – Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Fourth – Is it BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
AND…one of Rotary’s greatest strengths is that…..

AND….wrapping up with some more of what I consider HUMOR:
* Some days my decision-making skills closely resemble those of a squirrel when crossing a road….
* Some things are just better left unsaid….and I usually realize it right after I say them….
* I thought getting old would take longer….hmmmm………
* A wise man once said……NOTHING.
* Respect your elders….they graduated school without the Internet!
****AND….I’ve decided I’m not old…I’m 25….plus shipping and handling….
