Billy Henry, founder and executive director of Northwest Association of Blind Athletes wowed the members who attended our May 4 meeting at Legacy Salmon Creek.
Billy shared how NWABA is making a huge impact in changing lives for vision impaired children and adults. Whether it be a bike ride, a sporting event, or college scholarships, NWABA has become a major non-profit in our community, celebrating its 10th year in 2017-18.
Billy founded the organization, 10 years ago - at age 15 - in his parents garage.
Also at last night's meeting, Dan Sockle shared with us his "Who Am I" talk, highlighting his service to the public as a member of the US Army and as a Rotarian for many years. He also talked about his passion for the peace building process, while recognizing that "World Peace" as it is commonly talked about is not likely attainable.
Finally, it was great to see our friend and visiting Rotarian Karen Swanson again. Karen spends the winters in Arizona, where she is a member of the Rotary Club of Sun City West. While home in the Pacific Northwest during the spring and summer, Karen enjoys meeting with our club, and we are happy to have her.
