On Thursday evening, June 3rd Troop 4911 of the Fidalgo Island Rotary
held a retirement flag ceremony for the Rosario Assisted Living Facility. 
Many of the residents viewed the Scouts march with the new flag, bring
down the tattered flag, watched as the flag was folded for the last time as
a Scout explained the meaning of each fold, and finally the new
America flag was raised as everyone recited the "Pledge of Allegiance." 
 
Congratulations to Fidalgo Island Rotarian Val Tibbetts, who was honored with the Citation for Meritorious Service at the District 5050 conference this past weekend.  The Trustees of The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International awards the Citation For Meritorious Service annually to those who have rendered outstanding service to the Foundation.
 
Those who know Val know that there is not a more deserving Rotarian! Val's contributions to Fidalgo Island Rotary and District 5050 have been numerous since she joined Rotary in 2003, and usually, her work is behind the scenes, so it's hard to say what aspect of the club or district she HASN'T had an impact on! Val is instrumental each year in producing Fidalgo Island Rotary's two largest fundraising events, its auction and Shipwreck Festival. She served as FIR president from 2009-10, Assistant District Governor from 2012-15, and District Grant Chair from 2016-19. She is a Paul Harris fellow many times over, and serves on several club and district committees, as well as current secretary for FIR. Furthermore, Val is the number one resource for club, district and general Rotary questions - when in doubt, ask Val! We are so lucky to have such a fabulous Rotarian in our club. Thank you for all you do, Val! 
 
 
Happy 90th birthday to one of our favorite honorary members, David Rapella! On Thursday, members from both the Fidalgo Island Rotary and La Conner Rotary clubs gathered at Washington Park to celebrate 90 years of Dave. More than 30+ people gathered in the sunshine to enjoy cake, laugh with friends and enjoy some of Dave's best jokes. 90, feisty and still cookin'! 
 
 
 
Congratulations to member David Latimer for receiving his third Paul Harris honor this month. David has been a Rotarian since 2004, and was a member of the Bend Mt. Bachelor Oregon Rotary Club before joining Fidalgo Island Rotary in January 2020. This month, David was honored with his third Paul Harris recognition in honor of his service to both clubs, as well as his community. During a Zoom meeting earlier this month, President Rosemary (cyber) presented David with his pin. Thank you for all you do, David! 
 
 
 
Fidalgo Island Rotarian Kurt Nelson was honored this month by Boy Scout Troop 911 here on Fidalgo Island. Kurt has played an instrumental role in helping the troop get started during the past year. Not only did he connect Troop 911 with Fidalgo Island Rotary, so the club to sponsor the troop and allow the troop to officially get started, but Kurt also donated the troop's flags. Kurt has helped the troop plan numerous activities this past year, including volunteer activities, fishing trips and more, which allow them to fulfill requirements to receive merit badges as well as get involved in the community. Thank you for all you do, Kurt!
