Message from Nancy 11-11-2019

Join me in celebrating our Veterans and active military today and thank them for their service to our country and democracy. We wouldn’t be here without them.

This morning, Carol and I attended the Mukilteo Schools Foundation  annual Veterans Day breakfast at Mariner High School. It was uplifting and fun. The room was packed, and we hope they met their fundraising goals. A very worthwhile event, even though the day started very early!

Dr. Marci Larsen spoke at last week’s meeting and gave us an important update on the district’s February capital bond levy. They will ask property owners in the Mukilteo School District, which encompasses all of Mukilteo, plus parts of Everett, Lynnwood, Edmonds and Mill Creek, to add an additional $47 per year on a home valued $500,000 to provide $240 million that upgrades nearly every school in the district. We hope to invite incoming School Superintendent Dr. Alison Brynelson to a meeting next year to remind us how important it is to support our schools just as others before us supported our kids.

This week’s meeting is at Spiro’s and begins at 6:30pm. Gary will preside and I will give a short Board report on our finances and activities. Please be sure to meet us about 6pm if you want some dinner before the meeting. AGENDA attached.

Happy Birthday this week to Adrian and John Luckovich!

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!
