FUN Stories
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. 
Click to learn more about how we sent Tricia off in style (including, but not limited to, Jello shots!) 

 
When Tricia's sister sent her a box of Turkish snacks for her birthday, she wondered if they were legit; so she asked Walt and Susan Guterbock if her and Mike could come over for tea and share her gift.  "Susan's face just lit up when you texted her the reminder that you guys were coming over for tea." Walt giggled.  As the southern Smokey Mountain couple walked in, they quickly figured out why...
November is Foundation Month, highlighting the amazing impact that donations to the Rotary Foundation can have around the world. At our next meeting on Nov. 5, our own Val Tibbets will give FIR members important information about The Rotary Foundation (TRF), including insight into the grant process, the importance of the foundation and more. 
Each year, Rotary Clubs pledge a certain amount in donations to the Foundation. In order to fulfill the club’s commitment, a raffle will be held for a beautiful piece of handcrafted jewelry, designed by our very own Charles Yousling, set with emerald stones donated by Steve Miller (and beautifully modeled by Kandy Dubuque!) Click to learn more about how you can come to own this amazing piece!
 
The creative minds and comic camaraderie that's in our club is contagious!  Heath Treichel recognized his coworkers reminded him of characters from the movie Wizard of Oz. He planted a seed with them that created the most memorable photoshoot in Wells Fargo history. Each employee dressed up as a character and worked the bank for the entire day on Halloween. As you can see the costumes are amazing as Heath was the king of the Lollypop Guild. That's not the only thing that happened on Halloween...
