FUN Stories
 
When Tricia and Mike decided to drive cross-country back to Georgia they had a few different options. Have everything shipped with movers (estimate: $6000). Sell everything and fly first class (estimate: $1500). Rent a trailer and move themselves (estimate: $1000).  They had no idea going with the ladder would create the SCARIEST drive of their lives...
 

In twelve school graduation ceremonies this month, thirty-one of your sponsored students were honored. The top two graduating students have the honor of carrying the school and national flags. During the ceremony, they pass the flags over to the top two students in the school who are not graduating. Thirty one of the flag bearers were sponsored by the IPA (International Project Alliance), taking advantage of the opportunity you have given them. 

 
When FIR members Madelyn and Phil Case go down to Honduras to check on projects, deliver backpacks or assess school supplies, it takes its toll on the body. Phil (pictured here at the San Pedro de Sula airport) basically said "I'm done. I must take a nap. Somewhere. Anywhere." since their flights were delayed. There was so much to see and do while in Honduras, finally the couple got home to Anacortes around 2:30 am. "Surprise Surprise! No one was on the roads that early." Madelyn joked.
 
When Val and Dave Sem head south to Phoenix Arizona on holiday, they check out the local Saguaro cactus growing in the Sonoran Desert Preserve near their house. The warm weather, and dry temperatures motivate them to go hiking and start a vigorous workout regimen in the 100 degree weather. Dave personally, doesn't like his picture taken and usually avoids cameras, but for this one time- he gave us just a peak of his weight loss body...
 
If you've been to any Fidalgo Island Rotary events, meetings or fundraisers, you know that we have a good time. You've got to earn the nickname "The FUN Club," and we sure as heck have. One of the things that makes us the most fun is that we're truly like a family. Through the good times, bad times, joyous times and boring times, you can bet your fellow FIR members are going to be right there beside you, cheering you on. So when we lose one of our own, it makes it even harder. This month, we're wishing one of our own well as she heads off to new adventures - Tricia Sharp.
