Announcements
 
Reminder NEXT WEEK Tuesday (4/30) we will NOT be meeting for lunch, instead we will have our "Its 5:00 Somewhere" social (4:30-6:30) at Twin Sisters Brewery.
 
On May 21 our lunch will be a field trip at the Bellingham Police Department, hosted by Flo Simon.  There is a sign-up sheet for the visit and for lunch (sandwiches provided by Addagio).
 
2019 Brewers by the Bay: Brad Cornwell gave an update on the preparations. This year's Brewers by the Bay event will be on Saturday, June 8th, 6-10pm at Depot Square. All members are responsible for purchasing (and reselling if you want) 14 tickets ($350.00).  Purchase them at our club meeting, or we also have an online store:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2019-brewers-by-the-bay-tickets-59138977273.  Sven Gilkey is coordinating the volunteer sign-up sheet again this year. Use the link below to sign up for a time slot in google docs HERE.  Set-up time will be compressed this year (4:30pm-6pm), so we will need as much extra volunteer help as possible!
 
Eddie with update on the Docks for Kids project.  $150K in-kind donations have been raised, and we are within $100K of the $400K goal. How we can all help the cause:
1. Sell Brewers tickets; this is our club's major fundraiser prior to the docks installation this summer!
2. Direct people to the Docks for Kids website: https://www.docksforkids.org/our-mission/
3. Post information at your place of employment about the Docks for Kids project;
4. Like/Share on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Docksforkids/
6. Make a personal donation to the BBRC foundation on behalf of the Docks for Kids project.
 
We are looking forward to hosting our annual Brewers by the Bay 2019 fundraiser beer tasting event on Saturday June 8th at 6-10pm at Depot Market Square in beautiful downtown Bellingham.  Besides over 30+ breweries offering tastings, there will be food, music and a great vibe.  Tickets will be available through EventBrite soon.  See the video slideshow of Brewers 2018 that captures the day:
