First and foremost there will be a board meeting on Monday July 29, 2013 at the PAL Club at 6:30pm.
On Saturday from 11-3pm Michael has invited us to his Thai Chi Center out on 22nd & Glisan. Taoist is the name of the place I do believe he said. Sorry Michael if I got the named spelled wrong.
We didn't have a speaker today but we had a lot of announcements.
Bob A. mentioned how well the presentation in the park went for our own Vern Williams and his late wife Pat. He went to the Hillsboro Club this past Tuesday and thanked them for their help.
Jack took the framed presentation piece over to Vern who was deeply appreciative of this and the whole event. Was still in awe by it all.
I gave an update on Rudy. He had his annual echo-cardiogram scan for his aneurysm and it has grown to a level where his cardiologist wants him to have surgery within a years time. We have an appointment with a Cardio-Thoracic Valve Sparing Surgeon next Thursday to learn more and figure out when to do the procedure. It was brought to our attention by a friend of mine that he may not be able to fly to Maui in October with said aneurysm and if that were the case Rudy would have the surgery done now. If we can fly with it then he likely will wait to do the surgery until January or February next year. I will give updates when I have them.
Eric S. is better. There was an event last night up at the Jenkins Estate. Celebrated $ 40K in grants if I heard that right for the arts. Eric gave an update on the CPO6 meetings. August 1, 2013 will be the Tualatin River Keepers. Some news on the Scholls Ferry Road expansion and housing development. Also mentioned that the Public Affairs Form will be held Mondays at noon at the Peppermill. If interested contact Eric.
Eric O. is on vacation this week and so is Wally.
NWBSC update via Bruce. Just wrapped up the PAL Club Kids Camp. Provided the Educational component as well as helmet fitting and skills rodeo course. There were 50 kids on Tuesday and 52 on Wednesday. Working on the August 24th Beaverton Banks and Beyond event. If anyone is interested in volunteering you should contact me, Susan Nordstrom, and we'll put you in.
Raffle winner last week was Jack he donated to Dean Mitchell. This week it was Bruce and he is donating his winnings to the Candlighters.
We celebrated Steve's birthday with a catchy tune he sang to us.
THPRD International Celebration/Car show this weekend. Same event we helped out at years ago just a different name. Also happening this weekend is the Air Show in Hillsboro and the Washington County Fair.
Bob A. put a plug in for Doug Hoy and the book gathering and transporting that will be the first Saturday of the month. Meet at the library current location, load books up and move to their storage facility. Bob was appealing to us to help out. A pick up would be great but a car with a trunk, a bicycle, and even a skate board and backpack were mentioned as ways to move books.
Dick is doing Cycle Oregon this year.
And Michael gave an update on Barry saying he'd had a few set backs and issues with his shoulder and so he was going swimming in the mornings to try to help it out.
Have a great rest of the week and we'll see you next Thursday.
