FUN Stories
FUN Club members got together at Vickie's house to organize and pack the Thanksgiving meals to be delivered to the Anacortes Family Center.
Once the trucks were loaded Phil and Vickie dropped off the packages at the Anacortes Family Center.
Hopefully everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving meals.  Many wishes to all for a happy holiday season!
On October 14th the FUN Club and the Noon Club hosted PINTS FOR POLIO (Party with a Purpose).  
 
 
Dan Worra, noon club president, and Daniel Conrardy, FIR club president.
 
A fun event where everyone got together and had some great food, pints of beer and we raised money to contribute to the fight against Polio.  
 
 
A great way to spend a rainy evening.
 
 
Over $2,000 was raised by our very own FUN club - what a huge success!  Many thanks for those who helped to make Pints for Polio such a fun event and to those who already contributed.
 
Here is what the troop was accomplishing in October:

 

Week 1- We learned about the 5 definitions of chemistry, Organic, inorganic, analytical, physical, and  biochemistry, after that we did an experiment with nails and copper sulphate to see how the nails would react once put into the copper sulphate solution.

 

Week 2 - We as a troop made a slide on our state fossil, the Columbian Mammoth. This slide included it’s name, how old it is, and what it eats.

 

Week 3 - We discussed what energy we waste and how we could save the energy we use in our daily life.  


Week 4 - We went to village pizza and watched educational videos on the disaster called Chernobyl, to teach us about nuclear science and how radiation can affect the environment.
 
 
The Troop Theme for November is Theater. The Scouts will be working on obtaining the Theater Merit Badge and an adventure at Larrabee State Park where they will put on their own play.
Lynnette Setmire and Jackie Boss delivered the donated items and gift cards from the FIR members which will be used for families in urgent need in our community.  They are supported through the Immigrant Resources Immediate Support (IRIS).  
On Tuesday October 5th Bev Harrington, Rotary District 5050 Governor,  and Connie Milliken, Assistant Governor, joined the FIR meeting.
 
Richard Curtis was recognized for his service to FIR.  Many thanks for all his technical expertise and his implementation of a hybrid in room/Zoom meeting that allows members to join the meeting.
 
 
We also heard that our very own Susan Guterbock will be an Assistant Governor next year.  During the meeting Bev shared how she joined Rotary and encouraged all of us to join the District Celebration at the beautiful Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, WA 13-15 May 2022.  Bev got to hear about the different committees in FIR and she got every one out of their chairs with a fun and creative sharing game.  
Big thanks from the FUN club to Bev and Connie for joining us bright and early in the morning!
