We experienced a wonderful conference over the past weekend, beginning Thursday night at the Wenatchee Museum/Cultural Center with a salmon feed presented by the local Wenatchi Tribe, led by elder Randy Lewis, who also gave another excellent presentation on Saturday morning at Wenatchee Convention Center. 
Friday was packed with local tours and activities, ending with visiting Rotarians being hosted for excellent dinners at the homes of our Rotarians, where life-long friendships were made.
During Saturday lunch, Pete Van Well brought to the stage our special polio hero Carmen Bossenbrock and told the crowd all about her history working with polio patients (and Dr. Cadman) in Wenatchee during the 1950s.  He then surprised everyone by presenting a PHF award to Carmen's caregiver Alice Nieman.  Before lunch, a group of club members gathered around Carmen and Alice for photos.  Other photos will be posted on our website ASAP.
Many awards were presented to individuals for service to Rotary and/or the community, including the "Service Above Self "award from our club to Elizabeth Thompson, president of our Interact club.
At the Saturday evening semi-formal banquet, a surprise flash mob of StageKids performed 2 song/dance numbers to the delight of all 200+ attendees  (See video HERE and HERE).  These are from their upcoming show Seussical Jr., June 15-18, at Wenatchee HS.

Dear AppleSauce:   What would you call a mating of a bulldog with a shitsu?
                   --Cheeky Chester
Dear Cheeky.    A bullsu? No that doesn’t sound right. A sudog? No that doesn’t cut it either. An itsubull? No, that just doesn’t have the right ring. Give me time, Darling, Dear Applesauce will come up with the perfect name…it is on the tip of DA’s tongue (hopefully figuratively and not literally).
Editor’s note: DA did eventually come up with the definitive answer, but it does not meet the high journalistic standards of the Appleseed (even though Dear Applesauce is full of it)!
