Feb. 22nd Evening Meeting at Jimmy Mac’s in Everett

Happy President’s Day Dear Members!

For those of you lucky enough (me!) to have the day off, enjoy. There was an interesting article in the Seattle Times this morning about a bit of trivia about each of our 45 presidents. Fact: George Washington’s teeth were not made of wood, but elephant and walnut tusks, gold and ivory. Sounds heavy but bet he could chew rawhide!

Members Deb Bordsen and Kelly Dukes lost their father last week. Bruce Brown was well known in the community and a wonderful dad. His celebration of life is next Friday, February 24 from 2-5pm at Rosehill.  Our love and support to both of you.

We need 5-6 members to be at Rosehill next Friday at 1pm to help set up tables and chairs for the memorial, then others to put away after 5pm. Rosehill does not have the staff to do this. Please see or email me if you are available.


This week’s meeting is at Jimmy Mac’s in Everett. Dinner at 6, meeting starts at 6:30. We’ll have a portable PA system there. Our speaker is Joelle Coltrain from DVS, and Oran Osterman-Smith will update us on the Packs for Kids Fundraiser on March 12. Agenda attached, and be sure to check out more announcements on the second page. Packs for Kids brochure attached.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You will receive a survey generated by the Board for the membership to review and approve the Articles of Incorporation approved at the last Board meeting. We are forming a non-profit foundation so donations can be tax deductible and the foundation will be eligible for corporate matching grants. This is the second step in this process. More on this at Wednesday’s meeting. A link will be emailed to you later this week.

New Year in Kiwanis

By Tom Nielsen

2017 is going to be a good year to be a Mukilteo Kiwanis member.We will be serving schools and the community from January to December!

Coming up in March our big Pancake Breakfast is always successful and fun!With the new emphasis on committees, there’s lots to do for everyone!

There will be a lot going on in the club and on other projects to keep us busy until the Annual Salmon Bake in early September.

Our social committee will be planning some events that will give us all something fun to remember.

To say that the members and officers are enthusiastic and well prepared, is a safe bet.
Everything is in place and it looks like it is going to be one of the, best years yet!
