Jim Hutchinson, NW Director Municipal for Republic Services
will join us to talk about the Recycling Crisis.
From 12:00pm to 12:25pm, before the official meeting starts, Rob Rose will host a pre-meeting social. A great time to catch up with BRC friends you haven’t been able to talk to with the current COVID-19 situation.
To participate, join the Microsoft Teams meeting invite 30 minutes early and turn on camera and microphone. Don’t forget to turn them back off when the official meeting starts.
As we realize that there will be technical issues and not everybody is as comfortable with this style of meetings, President Rachele has indicated that everybody will get automatic attendance credit for the virtual meetings, regardless whether you were able to join or not.

Supporting our Community and International Grant programs
A note from Alex Smith: The Bellevue Rotary Legacy Fund is our Foundation’s endowment vehicle, used to raise money over the long term and distribute an appropriate amount of its earned proceeds to the Club for its annual charitable grant programs. I and the other Circle Members listed below have decided to join the BRC Circle now for various reasons. We have all decided to pledge now and some have made direct contributions to put that money to work inside the Legacy Fund. Others have made testamentary bequests, and some have made a combination of both.
Like any financial investment for the long term, it will fluctuate in value along with the market, but we know it will grow over time. We are encouraging all members and their families to consider the Bellevue Rotary Legacy Fund for their estate and during-lifetime planned giving programs.
An overview of the Bellevue Rotary Legacy Fund can be found by clicking its icon on the Club’s main Payments & Donations page, or by navigating to www.bellevuerotary.net/legacy-fund . On that page are links to a downloadable .pdf that provides instructions on how to create a bequest and includes background information for discussions with your financial advisors and estate planning professionals.
