Happy Dollars

Keep your happy dollar donation in an envelope and bring it to the next in-person meeting, send a check to RCHB, PO Box 11506 or pay via credit card from our new online payment system: 

Sharon S. is $100 happy for having another birthday.  She would like her donation to go to HRYF.

Richard C. is $100 happy.  Monday his gallery had the highest retail day ever and his shop has surpassed last years revenue, despite COVID.

Art T. is $5 sad for the passing of Nate Chang.  He is $5 happy for the Junior Achievement's upcoming recognition of Mike Fujimoto, Jacki DeLuz and Susan Labrenz.

James T. is $5 happy.  His son reported that he was practicing basketball in the yard and a man walking in the subdivision complemented him on his skills and then told him the joke:  What is a bear with no teeth called?  Answer:  A Gummy Bear and James realized that it was Steve J. who had been walking in the neighborhood and getting himself acquainted with his neighbors.

Tim H. is $5 happy.  He appreciates our club and our generosity.

Alan O. is $20 happy as he has graduated to walking 2 miles every day.

Guest Speaker -- Dr. James Gude
