Briefly:
            Fundraiser event planning, part two: President Lenore Romney said our September Rotary Serves event will take place at noon on Monday, Sept. 24, at Nectar’s in Kendall Yards.  Our services will be to continue planning our fall fund raising campaign to help needy kids, especially at Holmes Elementary School. This will continue the discussion about time, place and details of our fund raising event.
 
            Yule thoughts: With Halloween just five weeks away, or course it’s time for Christmas thoughts.  Club Treasurer Sandy Fink asked if the members want to continue supporting very needy Holmes students and their families.  Strong consensus was to continue the “$40 for 40” program, in which members provide 40 children with gifts with a budget of $40 per child at Christmas time.
 
            Holiday luncheon:  Save the date for this year’s holiday luncheon which will be on Monday December 3rd at noon at Nectar’s Downtown location at 120 N. Stevens St.  Spouses, family and friends are welcome.  
 
            ‘Serving’ possibilities: Romney raised some Rotary Serves possibilities for this fall.  She noted that finding service opportunities to coincide with a lunchtime schedule on the fourth Monday of each month is difficult.  Weekend service opportunities are easier to come by.    Among the fall possibilities are “Greenbluff gleaning” (if Second Harvest does that project this year) and volunteers for Tom’s Turkey Drive – a Second Harvest event in connection with KREM-TV and Rosauers stores – on November 16 & 17.  Romney is investigating more details on each.  Other suggestions are welcomed.
 
 ‘Rotary Serves’ continues fund talks  
            It does take an entire village – in this case an entire club membership – to stage a successful fund drive to meet the club’s goals to help Holmes Elementary programs and other children in the West Central and near-North Side area.
 
            A dozen or so members discussed some of the questions at the Sept. 17 meeting.  Next week, also at noon at Nectars in Kendall Yards, club members will try to determine the answers.
“It will take all of us to do this.  We are all one big committee working on these details,” said Club President Lenore Romney.
 
            Among the questions:
 
                    How can 20 members raise a net of $15,000 or more to support Holmes’ programs and other activities?
 
                   Can a wine-powered event and other events yield the results we want?  Can one or more vintners and wine shops support the club?
 
                   What is the best time for a fund-raising event?  Early fall? Late November or early December?  Late January or February?
 
                   What is the best venue to succeed?
 
                   How can we fully engage sponsors, members, spouses and guests to rally for our goals?
 
                  How can we best engage Holmes’ staff and administrators in supporting our nearly 20-year history of supporting the school and its students?
 
                  Should we join one or more other clubs in a coordinated fund-raising effort?
 
            As always, it’s easier to come up with questions than answers.  Join us next Monday to help make some of the decisions.

Briefly:
            Fund event planning: President Lenore Romney said the club noon meeting Monday, Sept. 17, at Nectar’s in Kendall Yards, will focus on the fall fund raising campaign to help needy kids, especially at Holmes Elementary School.   The spring fund-raiser event had been delayed to ensure a better successful campaign now.      The annual fund-raiser, which has provided as much as $20,000 for school needs. Romney asks “that all members bring ideas for activities we can do during our event to raise funds.”
 
‘Rotary Connect’ continues strong  
            About 20 club members, spouses and friends gathered at Nectar’s for the second “Connect”-tion on Sept. 10.
 
            Most impressive was the visitors’ distance joining the gathering.
 
    
 
 
 
 
            One visitor was Anita Mallory, from the Corpus Christi Downtown club in Texas.  She was driving from her part-time home in Portland through Spokane to a Porsche Club event in Banff, Canada.
 
            
 
Beth Kreitl and Kevin Espirito, from Indianapolis, were visiting friends and family in Washington State.  Both are Rotarians in the Indy Progressive Rotary Club, which meets twice a month after work.  Beth is the club’s president-elect.
 
            Rotary-North banners were exchanged with the visiting Rotarians.
 
            Rotary Connect is scheduled at 4:30 p.m. on each second Monday of the month at various venues.

Briefly:
            Our new schedule: Our next Rotary Serves project, Aug. 27 at noon, is filling the Holmes Elementary supply closet as boxes of pens, pencils, tissues, notebooks and other items are placed for use during the school year.  Holmes is located at 2600 W. Sharp.  Chef Sandy Fink will provide pizza and pop.
 
            Welcome!: Ron Noble, who has moved from the Colville Club, has joined Spokane-North Rotary.
 
            Fore!: Dave Hayward will coordinate organizing a club team for the Deer Park Rotary Club on Saturday, Sept. 22.
 
            Sgt.-at-Arms Q-and-A: What was founded earlier – Holmes Elementary or Rotary International? (If you missed the meeting, see answer below.)
 
            Pool party: Former director Brad Stark will host a gathering Sunday, Aug. 26, 2-5 p.m.  Pulled-pork provided; bring your own beverages (but no glass, please).  Brad’s house is at 6720 S. Tomaker in South Spokane.  The pool is down the hill.  RSVP by Aug. 24 to director Tim Zacharias at tim.zacharias@edwardjones.com.
 
            Schedule reminders: Aug. 27, noon at Holmes; Sept. 3, no meeting (Labor Day); Sept.10, Rotary Connects, 4:30 p.m. at Craftman Cellars in Kendall Yards (across from Maryhill and Nectar); Sept.17, noon luncheon meeting at Nectar in Kendall Yards.
 
 Another milestone for John
            Several of the Spokane-North Rotary Club has achieved Paul Harris Fellowship status for contributing $1,000 for the Rotary Foundation.
 
            But few have reached the “two ruby” designation of board member John Mailliard.  John’s contributions have reached $8,000 to $9,000, and Club President Lenore Romney presented the special metal at the Aug. 20 luncheon meeting.
 
            Lenore celebrated John’s achievement adding: “So much good begins with these gifts: wells are constructed, children are vaccinated against illness, senior citizens are afforded meals and services, children and adults are educated and given professional opportunities.”
 
            With the gift, she said, John had “gone above and beyond in doing good in the world.”
 
 
 
Agency helps us to breathe easy, if we can
           
            One of the busiest websites in recent days is the Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency’s air quality index.
 
            As dense smoke blankets the skies from lingering forest fires the index numbers zoomed from breathable “Good” and “Moderate” categories to “Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups,” to “Unhealthy,” to “Very Unhealthy” to downright “Hazardous.”  The last category hits the high index at 300.  Sunday night the meter hit “399,” the highest many observers have seen here.
 
            “It was very bad,” said Julie Oliver, executive director of the air agency.  “For those who like to breathe, it’s been a struggle,” she said.  Gusty winds during the Aug. 20 club luncheon reduced the index level to about 215, considered just “unhealthy.”
 
            Oliver said she doesn’t feel good about reaching the “hazardous” air quality levels, but it’s far better than “hazardous.”     
 
            Oliver explained the air quality components of ozone, particulates and other elements in the hazy stew.
 
            Groups impacted the most with the high smoke levels are children, pregnant women, senior citizens, asthma sufferers and those with heart and lung diseases, she said.
 
            “Children breathe 50 percent more than adults per weight groups,” she noted.  She said that the chemical process producing ozone “is like giving your lungs a sun tan.”
 
             Spokane County has been in compliance with statewide and regional standards, she said, but “we don’t have much wiggle room” to succeed those levels, said Oliver.  And as the “smoke seasons” seem to get longer each year, the standards also have been tightened.
 
            The countywide Spokane air agency, she said, is one of seven agencies in the state.  It operates with a staff of 19, including engineers, monitors and compliance members.  The Spokane agency checks air quality at 600 commercial and industrial sites.  Some in recent years included Kaiser Aluminum, Inland Empire Paper and Sacred Heart Medical Center, but most involved what she calls “mom-and-pop” businesses, like gas pumps, body shops which paint vehicles and others.
 
            Adding to the list of registered compliance sites are legal marijuana growing operations.
 
            Odor complaints, from rendering operations, composts and other businesses also reach the agency. 
 
            The agency’s five-member board includes representatives from the city, the county, Spokane Valley, a small-cities member and one at-large member.  Club member Michelle Fossum is a counselor for the agency.  Annual funding is $2.2-2.5 million, including fees, local assessments, grants, permits and penalties.  There were 650 citizen complaints and 250 staff-initiated complaints last year, Oliver said.  
 
(Q.-and-A.: Holmes Elementary was built in 1901.  Rotary International was founded in 1905.)

Briefly:
            Our new schedule: President Lenore Romney reminds that our next gathering is “Rotary Connect,” starting at 4:30 p.m., Monday, Aug.13, at Maryhill Winery Tasting Room, 1203 W. Summit Parkway (just east of Nectar).  The next luncheon meeting is noon, Aug. 20 at Nectar in Kendall Yards.
 
            This month’s service project, Aug. 27 at noon, is filling the Holmes Elementary supply closet as boxes of pens, pencils, tissues, notebooks and other items are placed for use during the school year.  Holmes is located at 2600 W. Sharp.
 
            Welcome!: Ron Noble, who has moved from the Colville Club, has applied to join Spokane-North Rotary.
 
            Fore!: Dave Hayward will coordinate organizing a club team for the Deer Park Rotary Club on Saturday, Sept. 22.
 
            A day for everything: Sgt.-at-Arms Eric Johnson stumped a table with the national day for Aug.6.  It was “wiggle your toes day!” 
 
            Warning for possible computer glitches
 
            Spokane County Auditor, whose job includes administering Recording, Financial Services, Motor Vehicle Licensing and Election Divisions, said major Spokane County computer changes are scheduled Sept. 3 – Labor Day.
 
            Dalton said, “We usually get license tabs back in two days, but over that weekend all systems will be down and rebooted.”  She encouraged folks to take care of things ahead of the Labor Day weekend such as renewing tabs and driver’s licenses, voter registration and other similar records.
 
Election process detailed 
          
            On the eve of the primary election, Spokane Auditor Vicky Dalton fielded an array of questions and added fascinating items for the club luncheon Aug. 6.
 
            Dalton said August primary elections were forced by calendar pressures.  September dates were moved earlier to accommodate mailing of ballots to military, travelers and business people overseas, and even recounts and law suits that arise and need to be resolved before the general election.  Dalton said she would prefer the Idaho calendar, with primaries in May and general elections in November.  However, when regular sessions of the Legislature are in session, the senators and representative cannot fund-raise, so May is too early for the primary.
 
            She said “we lost a few percentage points on turnout because of the summer primaries.”
 
            Turnout this year is higher than expected.  Dalton said “if we get 33 percent for a primary we would be thrilled, but this year it may hit 40 percent.”  She said the pre-paid postage has raised turnout.
 
            When King County decided to use pre-paid postage, others joined in.  She said ballots cost 55 cents in Spokane, but up to $1.17 in other counties.  Some, like Ferry County, just use regular stamps, but that may cost more because all ballots must be stamped.
 
            Dalton said in previous elections, paid ballots and dropped ballots in the white boxes were 50-50, but this time it looks like 70 percent are pre-paid and 30 percent are placed in the white boxes.
 
            Ballots, by the way, must be printed in North Carolina because there is no suitable paper in the Western states, Dalton said.
 
            She said she has had a number of reasons for replacement ballots, from “the dog ate it, the cat ate it, and the cat did something else on the ballot” that she wouldn’t detail in public.  One voter used images of lady bugs with legs on the ballot.   Her favorite was a ballot with a burn hole over one issue.  Apparently a smoker dropped his ashes onto the ballot and neatly circled through the ballot.  (The rest of her ballot was counted, she said.)
 
            What some voters may not know is that those voting early in the primary season are removed from call lists.  As Dalton said, the fact of voting is a public record, but not who someone voted for.  She showed how members could review their public voter information from a website, www.myvote.wa.gov and to see if their ballot has been received by Spokane County.
 
            Dalton said Democrats tend to vote in the early days when ballots are sent out.  Republicans tend to vote near the deadline.
 
            She was asked if electronic ballots from cellphones or personal computers were likely soon.  “Baby Boomers will not see it in their lifetimes,” Dalton said.
 
            She said, despite expanded safeguards and computer protections, hackers, such as Russia, North Korea and China, still “scare us to death.”
 
            Asked about verifying signatures on ballots, Dalton said officials can determine if spouses had switched the yellow envelope with the signed letter on the white envelope.  Millennial voters often have difficulty with written signatures, she said.  At a recent Hillyard Festival, some said three ballots were rejected for illegible signatures.  Asked if they are under 26, the response was “yep.”
 
            When asked about “the old days, with white-haired poll workers at the school,” Dalton said “schools don’t even want us in there,” with lock-downs, parents squabbling about students who might be involved in restraining order issues, and the like.
 
            Cost-by-mail is cheaper and works better, she said.
 
            Dalton added that the first Friday after the vote deadline is “election day for us.”  “Tuesday results are meaningless, she said.
 
            Dalton, a Priest River, Idaho native, has been County Auditor since 1999 and she is unopposed on the ballot for the first time this year.

July 16, 2018    
 
Briefly:
            Lunch changes:  Only four lunch meetings occur in the new Rotary year quarter.  Club President Lenore Romney outlined the new methods July 16.  Those choosing lunch should sign “yes” when they initial the weekly roster.  Lunches are paid quarterly, but lunches not used carry over to the next quarter.  Lunches are $15.
 
            Family friendly: Club members can join a spouse, adult child or other close family members by paying the $35 per member dues each quarterly, plus separate lunches when they join eat at the meeting.
 
            Next week: Rotary Serves. Club Treasurer Sandy Fink said we hope to have 10 or more members and friends at 2nd Harvest, 1234 E. Front Ave. at 1 p.m. on Monday, July 23.  Closed-toe shoes are important as we sort food items.  We are part of a project which will continue to 4 p.m., but we have committed time for one hour, or as long as you would like to stay.
 
   
 
Aloha and mahalo: Visiting Rotarian Dennis Smith shared banners with our club July 16. Smith was visiting from the Hickam Pearl Harbor Club, a one-year-old club of about 20 members on Oahu.  That island has 26 clubs according to on-line sources.  Smith’s club meets at 5:45 p.m. on the first, second and third Thursdays of the month.  He said much of their club has military members and they focus on needy children, such as a recent effort to provide “slippers” (flip-flop sandals) for hundreds of Micronesian youth.  Part of their fund-raising effort was to decorate wooden pins, raising $1,900.
 
         
 
 
   Morning Star Foundation focuses on at-risk youth
           
            Supporting the long-time Morning Star Boys Ranch, plus other at-risk children, is the Morning Star Foundation.
 
            Erin Neal, interim executive director described projects such as Bring Your Own Backpack (B.Y.O.B.), helping kids ages 6 to 12, among other charitable youth activities in the area.
 
            Erin said the Foundation has amassed an $8 million endowment total and gets client youth from a variety of sources in Spokane. It works with Ronald McDonald and Vanessa Behan programs, among others.
 
            She said whenever possible, the Foundation tries to reconnect the youth with family members. 
 
            Erin said reaching the 6 to 12 age kids is particularly important, but adds “if you can fix them by age 3, they likely will be good until 30.”
 
             She said there “is some magical ingredients growing in the Inland Northwest” that makes the area a great place to raise kids.
 
            Her own daughter will be a kindergarten student at Holmes Elementary this fall.
 
             Again, here is the new Rotary-North lineup:
 
            Rotary Listens: Luncheons will meet on the 1st and 3rd Mondays (except on federal holidays).  The next meetings are at Nectar Wine and Beer, 1331 W. Summit Parkway in Kendall Yards on Aug. 6 and Aug. 20.  The club will not meet Sept. 3 (Labor Day), and will meet Sept. 17 to discuss fall fund-raising plans.
 
            Rotary Connects:  Club “meet-up” gatherings are scheduled the second Monday of each month, starting at 4:30 p.m.
 The fellowship times are open to Rotarians, spouses, friends, prospective members and others interested in Rotary.  Locations will change each month and members are encouraged to suggest venues.
 
Next month’s Connect is 4:30 p.m., Aug.13 at the Maryhill Winery Tasting Room, 1203 W. Summit Parkway (just east of Nectar),
 
            Rotary Serves: A service time is scheduled each 4th week of the month, with time and dates adjusted as needed to suit the tasks.
 
            The first service project is Monday, July 23 at 1 p.m. at Second Harvest food bank, 1234 E. Front Ave. 
  
            Next month’s service project, Aug. 27 at noon, is filling the Holmes Elementary supply closet as boxes of pens, pencils, tissues, notebooks and other items are placed for use during thEdit Storiese school year.  Holmes is located at 2600 W. Sharp.  Sandy is supplying pizza.
 
            “Rotary Serves” succeeds what club members once called “dirty hands” projects.   Members are encouraged to propose potential service projects for non-profit organizations.
 
             When a 5th Monday occurs in a month -- such as July 30 -- that is an off day for the club.

Bravo!!
            Thanks mainly to the efforts of fund raiser coordinator Robbie Jackson, an astonishing total of $20,262 was netted for needy students and an array of projects for Holmes Elementary School and some other schools like Glover Middle School and North Central High School.
 
            Total revenues were $23,637 and expenses were $3,375, Jackson said.  Some 89 people attended The Backyard restaurant, as auctioneer Bill Simer smoothly worded through the events: silent and live auctions, “Heads and Tails” game and the “Call for the Cause” donations.
 
            Corporate sponsors donated $7,350 and five live auction items included $5,475.  Jackson distributed itemized details to club members.  Congratulations to all who worked so hard. 
 
Briefly:
             Rotary ending:  The last event of the Rotary calendar year is the installation program and banquet, 6 p.m., at Monday, June 26 at the Kalispel Country Club.  No luncheon meetings are planned June 26 and July 3, on the holiday eve.
Congratulations to club President Nancy Hanson for an outstanding year and best of luck to Chad Haverkamp as he begins his 2017-18 Rotary year.
 
 
Saling scholars honored
 
Chuck Rehberg shared that the following graduates from North Central, Shadle Parkand John Rogers high schools were selected as the club’s Gerald L. Saling scholarships. Each student received $1,500:
 
                                                                                        
                  
                                    
               
 
                                      
                              
    
  
 
 
Emma Vandine, of North Central, plans to attend Biola University in LaMirada, Calif., majoring in marketing and Biblical Studies. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Andreya Fletcher, of Rogers, plans to attend Eastern Washington University, majoring in environmental studies and business.
 
 
 
 
 
 
           Vandine and Fletcher attended the June 19 luncheon, while Kuhn was out of town and will visit the club later.
 
           Lenore Romney coordinated the scholarship program, joining committee members Art Rudd, Brian Hipperson, Melinda Keberle and Chuck Rehberg.
 
At Hanford, timelines are long and costs are high
 
          Ben Harp shows an encyclopedic mind about all things Hanford, as he details the awesome, complicated issues of radioactive wastes in south-central Washington.
 
          Harp is deputy manager for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of River Protection.  At the June 19 meeting, Harp talked in detail about safe storage, retrieval, treatment and disposal of 56 million gallons of chemical and radioactive wastes at the Hanford Site.
 
          Ben, who first joined Energy in July 1991, said got his degree in engineering, but spends as much time consumed by the legal tangle of various jurisdictions and the mountains of scientific issues involving Hanford.
 
          This bulletin space is not the place to get into all the details; suffice to say, Harp presented a first-rate knowledge of the 70-year-plus history of plutonium at Hanford.
 
          Six of the original none reactors have been “cleaned up,” he said,  adding,“ one is a museum and two more to go.”  Some 60 leaky single-walled tank sites have been transferred to double-walled tanks.
 
          But it will take at least until age 2022 to “vitrify,” or immobilized in glass, much of the wastes.  Harp said just one of many issues is the competing of techniques – “grout vs. glass.”  At the eastern U.S. reactors at the Savannah River plant,
wastes were put in grout, but Hanford leaders prefer vitrification.
 
          Bad news surface occasionally, like the May 9 tunnel collapse in fuel rods, in which, by order “all people had to take cover.”  Harp said though the issues were minor, people, including a Mead School class where he talked, “the students were frightened.”  He said Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., shared their own concerns.  Scary very hot issues, like cesium and strontium, dangerous elements “that grow in the dark,” tend to bring that reactions.
 
          Calming assurances that the pump-and treat tank wastes have not reached the Columbia River and that “some Spokane basements than more than certain Hanford sites,”  nevertheless get wary questions.
 
          For those who want to dive into the mountain of Hanford details, a half-dozen websites await.
 
          For a more casual look, Harp has sheets of slides to share, and many stories about significant clean-up to date.  (He said it’s like looking at a 10-year old who doesn’t seem to grow much each day; but when looked several years ago, seems to grow quite a bit.)  Hanford covers 486 square miles of challenges, but at least 1,441 acres have been transferred for redevelopment for tribes and others, Harp said.
 
          Still, the answers at Hanford are still decades away and the accumulated costs continue to build in trillions.
 
          Closing the meeting, President Nancy Hanson said: “And I think I had problems.”

Foundation that takes philanthropy to a new level
 
          Empire Health Foundation (EHF) was founded in 2008 out of the sale of Deaconess Hospital to CHS. 
 
          They use the approach they call Philanthropy 3.0 – Adaptive, results-based investment that fuses innovation, collaboration and equity to do whatever it takes to move the dial.
 
          Sarah Lyman, Vice President of Strategies and Operations, detailed some of the programs that the EHF is a part of including Workforce Development, Medical Education, Mitigate Adverse Childhood Experiences, Obesity Prevention, Native American Health, Health Care Access and more.
 
          EHF manages approximately $80 million and their staff actively work alongside community partners to address complex issues.
 
          They have also partnered to create four non-profit entities: Family Impact Network, Spokane Teaching Health Center, Better Health Together and Rising Strong.

Spokane North Rotary Club Bulletin
 
 
Briefly:
            On deck: Candidates for the 6th District seats in the State Legislature are scheduled to discuss issues Oct.3.
 
Budget, membership issues lead Q1 update    
 
          Club President Nancy Hanson turned her Sept. 26 first-quarter report into a round-table discussion about finances, positions, programs and strategies.
 
         In addition to leadership lists and copies of the fiscal-year budget, Hanson also distributed half sheets asking “three, single-words” in response to three topics, namely:
                What defines Rotary for you?
                Why did you join Rotary?
                Why do you stay in Rotary?
 
            Answers will be collected, collated and distributed, Hanson said.       
 
            Leadership roles which still need volunteers, she said, include Youth Programs, Grants, Social Programs, the Scholarship Committee and a 2017-18 President-elect to follow the current officer, Chad Havercamp.  “If you feel a calling, let us know,” Hanson said.
 
            She also distributed copies of a “club dashboard,” with graphs and pie-charts showing membership history (the club is now at 27),  gender distribution (67 percent male), age distribution (67 percent are 50 or older and 26 percent are 65 or older), and years of service (60 percent have 10 years or more).
    
            Much of the discussion focused on the fiscal-year budget, which shows a projected deficit of $7,135.
 
            The club also has a carry-over budget surplus of about $40,000.  Earnings from three CDs have been disappointing.
 
           The budget deficit, Hanson and other board members explained, arises from loss of some long-time members, a desire to keep most projects and funding programs at about current levels, plus some additional expenses, such as having a part-time
 bookkeeper.
           
 
            One member commented he would be comfortable with the deficit “for a year or two, if there is a strategy” back to a balanced budget.  “Otherwise, I would be less comfortable.”
           
            Another member said “why give away the farm?” and suggested plans be “scaled back if we hit a deficit.”
           
            Hanson noted that Rotary International dues are scheduled to increase slightly each of the next three years, so raising club dues may discourage membership recruitment and retention.
           
            She said comments and suggestions from all club members will help direct board decisions.  The next board meeting is at noon, Thursday, Sept. 29.

Briefly:
            On deck: Following President Nancy Hanson’s first-quarter club update on Sept.26, the October luncheon programs will feature election roundtable discussions with candidates for the State Legislature, County Commission, Superior Court judgeships and ballot initiatives.
 
Business consultant polishes presentation skills
               
            Context is vital because “you are in a persuasive conversation all the time,”
 
            Kevin Benson told those attending the Sept. 19 club luncheon.
 
            Benson, who owns and operates Bold Move Consulting, added that he likes to talk to Rotary Clubs, partly “because you have the best food.”
 
            Benson also is a longtime adjunct instructor at Gonzaga and Whitworth universities, and, equally important, a 20-year veteran of improv comedy.
 
            He offered tips on how to “make your next presentation phenomenal.”  One of the basic problems for public speakers, Benson said, “is fear. You have to be an authentic human being and we want people to like us.  You are not a horrible public speaker; you are just terrified.”
 
            Benson said most people’s brains operate on “fight-or-flight reactions,” which leads to work-around behaviors.
 
            After his daughter, now age 9, fell off her bicycle, Benson said, she refused to get back on, saying “I’m not going to do that again.”  Overcoming the fear of falling, or failing at public speaking, takes concentrated effort, he said.
 
            Benson, who said he works mostly with non-profit agency leaders and entrepreneurs, offered some tips to improve presentation skills.
 
            Presenting information is a transaction, he said, differentiation between “presenting information and telling a story.”
 
            Part of the transaction is engaging the audience by soliciting and accepting their ideas, then building on them.  It takes a lot of “yes, and…once upon a time…then, because of that…and because of that…until finally…”
 
            Using the Disney Co.’s Pixar animated movies as an example, he talked about the “story spines” which shape story telling.
 
 
            So how would club members rate Benson’s talk, on a scale of “useful” to “phenomenal?”

Briefly:
           On deck: The speaker scheduled for the Sept. 19 meeting is Kevin Benson of Bold Move Consulting.  Future programs, said coordinator Brad Stark, will include candidates for the 3rd and 6th  state legislative districts, the county commission and Superior Court judge.
 
            Fond farewell: Past-president Bruce Ellwein said goodbye as he moves to a new assignment with First Command in Tucson.  In parting, Bruce donated $7 to the collection basket  – one dollar for each year he was a club member.
 
West Central center ‘has a place for you’
            Whatever a visitor’s age or need, the West Central Community Center applies its ubiquitous slogan: “There’s a place for you here.”
 
            Kim Ferraro, the center’s executive director, on Sept. 12 outlined the programs and possibilities of a closer working relationship with the club, which is located at 1603 N. Belt.
 
            Ferraro, a Plains, Mont. Native, returned to Spokane from Los Angeles to become only the second executive director at West Central.  She has been there 5 years, following the 30-year tenure of Don Higgins.
 
            The center primarily serves residents of the West Central, Emerson-Garfield, Riverside and near Northwest neighborhoods.  Programs, she said, include WIC (Women’s, Infants, and Children’s health and nutrition), Head Start/Early Start, Youth
Development and Recreation and Supportive Services, a catch-all category ranging from computer connections to various social services.  One new program, she said, is for developmentally-disabled adults.
 
            Ferraro describes West Central as a “hybrid” facility because it houses programs, has tenants, and also rents space to visitors.  Space is offered free for community activities and rented from private events, such as birthday parties or weddings, she
said.
 
            One tenant is Unify Community Health, formerly the Yakima Valley Farm Workers health program, which has one of its three area clinics at West Central.  One target of health services, Ferraro said, is the demographic that the West Central neighborhood has “the highest rates of teen pregnancies and moms who smoke in Spokane County.”
 
            She also praised the work of long-time staffer Rick
 
            Because of its strategic location, the center also houses a Spokane Police detective and serves as a meeting hall for visitors such as former Vermont governor Howard Dean, who spoke there during his 2004 presidential campaign.
 
            The police presence is welcomed, Ferraro said, “because we have a tremendous amount of crime in the neighborhood.  Needles from drug users are picked up daily in the (adjacent A.M. Cannon) park.”  She added that construction will begin next month on a garage to house the center’s van and other vehicles.  The van was stolen recently and tires have been slashed twice by the same teen-ager.
 
            The center operates on a $1.7 million annual budget, Ferraro said, “with lots of federal funding,” mainly through community development block grants, plus city general funds.  The four Spokane centers also have raised $250,000 by auctioning 12 play houses, she said.
 
            In addition to the welcoming slogan, Ferraro said the center stresses its “core beliefs” with the acronym “REACH – Respect, Empower, Advocate, offer Compassion and Hope.”
 
            The center, she said, works closely with Holmes School since it shares the same family base.  Ferraro said she wants to talk more with club President Nancy Hanson about shared activities with Spokane North Rotary.
 
            The center stages a school supplies drive with help from the General Store and also coordinated collection of 5,000 pounds of food for needy neighbors.
 
            “We’re so glad we can do what we do in West Central,” Ferraro said.
Club adds new member
          The club’s newest member is Tim Zacharias, a financial advisor the past three years with the Edward Jones firm.
 
          Tim, who was born in Germany, served 21 years in the Air Force as a helicopter pilot and instructor.  He was stationed at Fairchild from 1994 to 1998.
 
          Tim and wife Alley live in Colbert and have three children, including two who attend Mt. Spokane High.
