2016 Mukilteo Citizen of the Year

The search for the next Citizen of the Year has begun. This is a wonderful opportunity to honor an outstanding community member by submitting a nomination form along with your letter(s) explaining why this person should be the next recipient. The selection committee is made up of past “Citizens of the Year” and is sponsored by the Mukilteo Kiwanis Club.

Nominees must be:
1) A current Mukilteo resident
2) Non-political
3) Not a paid promoter for the City

Recipients of the award receive no money or titular duties; but are recognized for their outstanding contributions to our community in a number of ways. The selected person will be honored at a ceremony hosted by the Harbour Pointe Retirement Center, featured as a guest of honor in the Lighthouse Festival parade in September, recognized that same afternoon at an Award Ceremony hosted by the Historical Society, and presented a plaque by the Mayor.

The winning name will also be added to the larger plaque which is located at the Rosehill Community Center and contains all the names of past recipients.

Nominations can be emailed or mailed to the addresses below, and must be received by May 31, 2016. See Attached Nomination Form. 2016CITIZENOFTHEYEARFORM

May 25th Evening Meeting at Spiro’s

This week’s EVENING meeting at Spiros we will have Noreen Laggart from Peoria Home.
I want to say thank you to everyone to helped volunteer at the Aviation Week event on Saturday… things looked a little rough in the beginning with all the rain but it cleared up and there was a good showing despite the weather.  Also, thanks to Paul for hosting the new member Orientation at his home.  He said it was a success as we had seven new members attend.

Few items of interest:

I will forward a flier showing that on AUG 7 at 1PM is KIWANIS DAY at the Everett Aqua Sox baseball game.  Tickets are $10.  There will be other Kiwanis clubs from the area attending.  I will continue to put out the word being I need a guestimation of how many would like to attend… friends and family are welcome.
Please send me a note, call, or grab me at a meeting as I will be passing around a sign-up sheet.

June 11th is the Boys n’ Girls club golf tournament.  Pam Taylor is passing out sign-up sheets for us to help out.  This was a great success last year and they need our help being they are trying to raise dollars that could potentially go help with the construction of a new facility should it be approved by the city.

Clothes for Kids has a few days in June where they will be looking for volunteers to help pick up lost and found clothing leftover from the school year.  Anyone who has a truck or vehicle that can drive around the Mukilteo School district schools please let me know.  I also will have a a sign-up sheet going around for this.  Days are June 20-21 from 0900 until Noon.

Thank again for all you do and hope to see you on Wed. Evening at Spiro’s.

Red ball raffle has eclipsed $.535…somebody is going to be a big winner soon

Mukilteo Kiwanis- Children’s Books

Fellow Kiwanians!

Recently, Daphne shared/discussed an great opportunity to earn books for our kids in the school district.  Please see her email below.

Please direct any questions to Daphne or Jen Guzewich.

Thank you,

From: Gellhaus, Daphne
Subject: FW: Mukilteo Kiwanis- Books

Here is a great way to earn free books to donate to schools in the Mukilteo School District or other programs in our area, or we may be able to purchase the dictionaries/thesauruses for next year and save some money for the club.

It’s a great way to pick up some books for many children in our lives as well.    See the Flyer attached, the books come directly to the purchaser – what an easy way to do some holiday shopping.

For all of our purchases, we will receive 50% in free books from Usborne.     We can pick the books or Jen can help us with this selection.

Below is the link for us to use
Here is your direct link:      Be sure to check out the specials section!

For more information Jen’s email is below or contact Daphne as well.    We as a club can decide where the free books should be donated.

Thanks for your help in this club fundraiser.
