Curtis Smith talked about a project to fund a video about the history of BTC and the vocational college.  Lots of historical material and photos.  Editing of the video starts this week. But they need to fundraise to pay for the production costs ($5k) so Curtis encouraged every member to give a little. (checks can go to “Lummi Hilton Productions”).

Glen Groenig interviewed our own Andy Clay.  Andy was born in Texas and grew up in Oklahoma, then University of Denver, then degree and agriculture, then degree in nursing school, ended up in Spokane working at a nursing home.  Met husband there, then made the move to Bellingham and a side track into the auto business.  Now she is back in the nursing home / senior living business which is her first love.  She also talked about her founding a cooperative school in Kenya, which is now really thriving.  
Thanks for being a part of our club, Andy!
No meeting June 28th or July 5th.
