Wednesday April 26th, 6:30 PM Evening Meeting at Spiro’s

Good Sunday morning everyone,
A big thank you to all that participated yesterday at the Community Garden’s Earth Day clean up project. Our Club and 12 Key Clubbers were well represented and much was accomplished. Thanks to Lynette and Kelly for organizing a great day; for the most part, the weather cooperated.  If anyone is interested in pulling out more invasive blackberry, I’ll be in Japanese Gulch with about 25 Key Club and Mukilteo Youth Advisory Committee members next Saturday from noon – 4pm. Former member Tyler Thompson will be out with us to make sure we rid the Gulch of the “bad” stuff and retain the good. The City of Mukilteo Public Works’ Department will also be there with their backhoe and dump truck to haul what’s removed back to the PW shop.
City Planning and Community Director Patricia Love spoke to a spell-bound group last Wednesday and got us caught up on several high-priority projects. The multi-modal ferry terminal project will again get into gear this summer and there will be noise and traffic implications for those of us who live in Old Town. I’ll post her presentation on the website so you can view it.  She also discussed the Harbour Reach Corridor Extension project, new Boys and Girls Club construction and the quandry of what to do with the old club location (Hawthorne Hall), waterfront parking issues and many other topics. We’ll invite her back to an evening meeting and I’m willing to bet there is so much more she could talk about there probably wouldn’t be much duplication!
We have a Wednesday evening meeting this week at Spiro’s; Rene de los Santos from the Mukilteo Y will be our speaker so don’t miss that. Agenda attached. Next week we’ll have our Office/Board elections and the Board is asking for the members to review/approve our new Foundation’s corporate documents, and are attached. WE NEED A QUORUM OF 40 MEMBERS TO ATTEND THIS MEETING TO MAKE THE ELECTIONS AND VOTES COUNT. Please calendar this meeting.
Salmon Bake planning will start soon. Thank you Pam for again being our project lead.

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!
