“Swartz on Sports” presented by Bill Swartz was introduced by Randy Hansen, PP
Bill gave an entertaining perspective on why and when sports keep us connected and why we miss it during times like these, how they influence us and how we take them for granted.
I thought about this presentation as I watched the 1979 All Star game played at the Kingdome and then replayed this week in lieu of a live game. It was wonderful and all the things Bill said applied especially the nostalgia and sense of community they provide. Bill told us that the Skagit Rotary was partnering with the Chinook Enterprises to donate to heroes during the health crisis. He ended by saying that there will be games again.
Hear him on KOMO news.
President Steve thanked our speaker and notified him of the certificate in name acknowledging a donation to the healing fund for a water project in Panama. He then thanked those who contributed, visitors and guests. Rotary Connects the World
Respectfully submitted,
Barbara George
