Todd Dunkelberg – Deschutes Public Library

On Tuesday, Oct. 17th 2017, Todd Dunkelberg, director of the Deschutes Public Library System, will be speaking to us about the Library.

The Deschutes Public Library has gone digital. Sure, there are still shelves full of books. But today’s patrons are just as likely to be using a library computer to search for a job, or to download their borrowed books to their Amazon Kindle or their iPhone.

Join us from noon till 1:15 at the Deschutes Brewery Mountain Room, 901 SW Simpson Ave, Bend, OR 97702.

Ride to End Polio

Our friend and fellow Greater Bend Rotarian, Cort Vaughn, will be riding a metric century (100 kilometers/62 miles) in the Ride to End Polio fundraiser.

Cort says:

Rotary and its partners have reduced Polio by 99%. With your help, we will wipe out Polio forever.
Please visit my Rotary Ride to End Polio page to support my efforts. Enter the amount that you want to donate, then click Contribute Now. You will be directed to PayPal where you can pay by credit card.

Donations are tax deductible. Rotarians can also receive Paul Harris credit.

I am a Polio survivor. Polio paralyzed my right leg at the age of 2. I endured years of physical therapy and multiple surgeries. Now I walk with a brace. I want to help create a Polio free world where no child will ever again suffer from Polio and parents will no longer live in fear.

I volunteer with Rotary as the Zone 25 End Polio Now Coordinator representing N. California, N. Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia.

Rotarians – to get Paul Harris credit, please follow the link to my Ride to End Polio page, then click the button at the top to log into your My Rotary account. Unfortunately you will be directed away from my fundraising page, so you will need to come back to this email and click on my link again. Members of Greater Bend Rotary can also give Greg a check payable to the Rotary Club of Greater Bend with Ride to End Polio in the memo.

Thanks for your support,

Cort Vaughan

Zone 25 End Polio Now Coordinator (17/18)

District 5110 PolioPlus – Chair (2014 – 2017)

Gary Judd – Bend Municipal Airport

On Tuesday, Oct. 3rd 2017, Gary Judd will be speaking to us about what’s going on at the Bend Municipal Airport. Gary has been the manager of the airport since March 2009. Prior to that, he was the manager at the Grant County Regional Airport in John Day.

Located on approximately 420 acres five miles northeast of Bend, Oregon, the Bend Municipal Airport (KBDN) caters to the needs of general aviators, hosts two flight training schools, and is home to numerous businesses. Their combined operations make Bend the third busiest airport in the state in terms of takeoffs and landings.

The Bend Municipal Airport wants to update its master plan to keep up with the growth of Bend. This update includes a grant from the Oregon Department of Aviation that will help kick-start the planning efforts.
