- Our Special Daze included only Tomas Chavez’s birthday, on August 11th, but that involved trips to Six Flags and Red Lobster!
- And here is the report from Izzy – our Exchange Student from Austria (backpacking was included):
Let’s Hear from North Bay Rotaract!
Sophie Saucedo, this year’s President of the North Bay Rotaract Club, was on hand to tell us about her Club’s plans for her year. She said that their areas of focus are Professional Development, Membership, and Public Relations. She also discussed their upcoming events, including next month’s Fun Run in Blue Lake.
More Than Ever, “Talk Matters”
Not long after she arrived in Humboldt County, Mary V. Gelinas wrote a book for the members of her new community – “Talk Matters! Saving the World One Word at a Time”. She spoke to us (and with us) about the importance of having respectful discussions with others, even when we don’t agree with them.
You can order Mary’s book from her website, gelinasjames.com/talkmatters/
