1989-1990, Ray Lauderdale

Theme: Enjoy Rotary!

The “Elephant Ear” fellowship and fund raiser occurred again in July, followed by the Pops Concert fund raiser in December. The in-house “Bell-Ringer” program brought in $2,850 this year. President Ray Lauderdale added a hands-on project with the club’s involvement in the work place food drive. A marvelous effort by all Rotarians in the city brought in 48,744 pounds of food and an additional $7,962 in cash.

The year culminated with the activities of the International Convention in Portland. Over 21,000 Rotarians came to Oregon. Our home hospitality dinners saw 88 club members hosting over 300 guests. It was a grand finish for a great year of Rotary.
