Kiwanis Club of Mukilteo Week of July 10

Hi there!
Schools out, summer is here – is everyone on vacation? We had about 15 at our meeting last week. Although the speaker had a scheduling conflict and didn’t attend, we have a full slate of speakers until September. They may get up early, prepare and drive to Mukilteo to give us their best, let’s reciprocate by being there for them! Hopefully that was a gentle ask..maybe having weekly meetings or speakers during the summer is something to reconsider. Let me hear your thoughts on that.
Conrad Mounsey visitied us last week at the recommendation of Paul. He’s a Kamiak grad and getting married soon (a two-fer!), and we loved having him visit.  I now have a stack of applications in my Kiwanis binder!  Since we had some extra time, Gloria gave us a lovely “Getting to Know You” story about her wonderful family.
Cocoon House tonight. Thanks Anita for being our lead chef, and for Joan, Dana and Riaz for volunteering their time and food.
Our speaker this week is Michael Mathis from the Burned Children Recovery Foundation. From their website: The BCRF is committed to a single goal as a national recovery agency providing Emotional Support and Financial Aid to Burned Children and their Families since 1989. We believe every burned child should have an opportunity to heal from both physical and emotional injuries. Our foundation strives to offer these children from all socio economical backgrounds these opportunities. Agenda July 12 2017 attached.
Birthday week for Lynne Miller, Debra Bordsen and Wendy Grace!  Boom!*:) happy
Salmon Bake: The Lodge has donated 20 – $25 gift cards as their sponsorship; these are available for purchase but have an expiration of October 1, 2017. These make great gifts. See Pam or Nancy.  Letters to sponsors went out last week; if you want to write a sponsor check and want a letter, let me know.
Want more Kiwanis logo wear? We have a source to embroider the logo on shirts, etc. and we’re looking at ordering hats from KI.  Cost is $12- $15 per piece; please purchase your own navy or royal blue, white or gold shirts (polo, long, short or sleeveless shirts, etc.)  Deadline is August 15 to have them ready for the Salmon Bake.
Make it a great week!
Nancy Passovoy
President

Happy July 4th Week everyone!
Stay safe, and remember fireworks are illegal within City limits. Go enjoy a professional fireworks display and keep all of your fingers! 
Tomorrow at 7:30am, we will hold our July Board meeting and select our Kiwanian of the Month, review the June minutes, Club finances, and look at a DVS grant request. All are invited to meet us at the Y.
The speaker at this week’s meeting will be Mayor Jennifer Gregerson to give us a “State of the City” update. Please find attached this week’s agenda.
In case you missed last week’s meeting, our Pam Taylor has been selected as the “2017 Citizen of the Year”! So well deserved, and after a standing ovation, she was presented with a cool plaque and a big cake! The special community reception is still TBD, possibly August 26 at the Harbour Pointe Senior Living facility.
Lots of birthdays this month and future events, so check out the lists on the agenda.
The 100th PNW DCM will be held August 24 – 27 in Kennewick; see the agenda for the link to register online. We are entitled to 3 registrants for this conference.
Salmon Bake getting into gear: the Taylor’s have found a donor for the Salmon, Debra has confirmed that Pepsi will donate all the pop, but we’ll need about 20 cases of water and lots of plates from Costco. Lots more later.
See you in the am, or Wednesday morning at the golf course. Stay safe!
Nancy Passovoy, President

May 24th Wednesday Morning Meeting at HP Golf Course

Happy Sunny Sunday everyone!
We had a very successful Pancake Breakfast on Saturday at Historic Flight Foundation’s Aviation Day. Huge thank you to Pam and Gary for all of their help to make it happen, and to Adrian and Joe manning the grills, Joanie as hostess with the mostess, Nora at the cash register, Dana with the Key Clubbers, Daph as our “go to” as no task was too small to tackle, Ron for keeping our line moving. Thanks Captain Dan for getting us some grills and Tim keeping them going, Gary for renting the coffee pots, and our selfless members who loaded and unloaded trucks with all of our stuff and took it back again Saturday night. This event was our first try, and while there are many things to improve, there were lots of happy customers. We grossed over $1,000 and hope to have some earnings info on Wednesday once we know what our food costs were.
