Scott & Neil Hayne, father & grandfather, respectively, of Nolan, who is an All Star on the Miracle League team.
Visitor Thanks
Patty Sims introduced Scott & Neil Hayne, who both thanked the Club for putting on Miracle League every year.  Nolan, Scott’s son, really enjoys Miracle League every year because it allows him to play baseball like his sister does.
Quiet Rotarian Presentation
President Rick presented Diana Lanspa with a “Quiet Rotarian” pin for always attending meetings and supporting our Club’s efforts in the community in a quiet way.  Congratulations, Diana!

President Rick presented a check for $480 to Kristen Olson, the winner of the Joker Pool last week.  Welcome to the Club, Kristen!

  • Patty Sims told us Miracle League played another little league team last Saturday, which was a different experience than normal.  The Mariner Moose was present, and a good time was had by all.  The Fraternity volunteers from UW will be at this Saturday’s game (May 20th), so Club members are not needed.  However, please volunteer for the last two games on June 1st and 8th.  Volunteers should be at Perrigo Park at 10:00 AM.
  • Dan Bartel is going fly fishing near Carnation this weekend and will be seeking 11 to 13 inch “catch and release” trout.  Contact Dan if you’re interested in joining him for a fun day.
  • Amy Mutal gave us details for the best ball golf tourney on Monday, May 20th at Mt. Si Golf course.  Let Amy know if you want to be part of a foursome.  Tee times start at 11:00 AM, and dinner & prizes will begin at 4:30 PM.  All players should arrive before 11:00 AM to get the maximum enjoyment, and you’re invited to dinner even if you don’t play the game.
  • District Conference is coming soon and President Rick and Joanne Primavera will be our delegates.  A few others are going, so maybe it’s not too late to join them for a fun weekend.
Bill Branvold, a CPR trainer from Evergreen Hospital, updated us on the proper way to do CPR.  A brief list of new procedures is as follows:
  1. If a person is found on the ground and not moving, tap their foot and ask if they are okay
  2. If not okay, call 911, or have someone else call 911
  3. Bare the chest and begin CPR on the sternum, pushing hard (down 1/3 of the chest height, don’t be afraid of breaking bones)
  4. CPR is done at 100 to 120 beats a minute, so trade off after 1 or 2 minutes with another person if possible
  5. Use an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) if available and continue CPR as necessary until EMTs arrive.
Bill suggested a UTube video: “Chris Solomon’s Rescue,” where CPR is used to help save a person.
CPR classes are held at Evergreen Hospital if you’re interested in updating your CPR skills.
Thanks, Bill, for an informative and timely program!
President Rick adjourned the meeting at 7:30 PM.
