The Rotary Club of Three Creeks had another really good meeting last night. Our second off-site meeting was hosted by the fine folks at Washington State University Vancouver, where we not only got a great update of all of the very exciting news about the Vancouver campus, we also learned about some really impressive world-class research happening right here in Clark County.
Dr. Allison Coffin, a WSUV research professor, delivered a passionate and fun program about the newly-patented research that she and her team are doing on the campus in Salmon Creek. Did you know tiny little tiger fish have ears? Did you know that they also have "hair cells" along their skin that helps them hear? Did you know, those tiger fish hair cells are invaluable to the Tier I researchers at WSUV?
Well...it's all true!
We are also tickled at the record turnout of 18 people who came to the meeting, and the one new charter application we received last night.
