Note from
President Stokes

Greetings Rotarians,
After a series of fairly intense programs, now is the time - to quote Monty Python – “for something completely different .” This new direction is all about our members. 
This go-round we’re going to hear from three members of varied backgrounds  - 
 Beth Hodgson (1997) CEO  of Spring Environmental - a company that simplifies environmental and safety compliance. If she doesn’t get to it in her presentation…please ask Beth about the Haswoper Challenge…
Chonchol Gupta ( 2019) CEO of Rebirth Analytics  - which despite the name is not re-animation (though that would also be cool) but instead financial analytics and analysis. And this is the cool part – his company is registered as a trade secret – seriously….
And last but not least, the Gorilla of my dreams – past Rotary 21 President Ira Amstadter (2002) CEO of Express Employment Professionals. When he’s not monkeying around Spokane, Ira and his team at Express have been amongst the leaders in helping people find jobs and helping them find the right jobs -  including our interim Executive Director, Diana Picone.
Of all the programs we do, these are my favorites -
  1. We get to highlight the cool/smart/interesting  people in our club,
  2. The above cool/smart/interesting people have the opportunity to brag on the good work they do;
  3. And the aforementioned cool/smart/interesting members of the club might find new clients/ customers as a result.
But the best part is getting to know them all better…and in the end, that makes us all better Rotarians and a better Rotary 21.
Bring your questions and your curiosity…
                               “See” you on Thursday,
                  Gary Stokes
                      Rotary Club 21

RCS Auction

Thanks to a generous donation a fantastic Rotary item with a rich Club 21 history has been donated for auction to benefit the Rotary Community Services 2020 Campaign.

Around the Wheel

Rotary Club 21 is saddened to share the passing of member Marie Strohm.
Marie joined Rotary 21 in 2014 and was a two-time Paul Harris Fellow.
Marie was an active and committed part of the Rotary 21 family, co-chairing the Civic Affairs Committee, serving on the MarCom Committee and editing this bulletin every week.
As information becomes available on services for Marie we will keep the club notified.
