Mukilteo Kiwanis January 2021
Happy New Year!
I was fortunate to have lunch with Carol Nielsen and Dana Wilbur at Cabernets and IPA on New Years Eve. We saw Lynette and Skip. Lovely place with outdoor seating and heaters.
Carol and Dana promised to come to the Zoom meetings this year. I hope we can encourage the rest of you to do the same. We have help available to navigate Zoom. Let me know if you need it.
Our meetings for next year are as follows:
February 24, Wednesday, 7:00 AM,
March 10, Wednesday, 6:00 PM,
March 24, Wednesday, 7:00 AM,
April 14, Wednesday, 6:00 PM,
April 28, Wednesday, 7:00 AM.
The board meetings are
January 13, Wednesday, 5:00PM,
February 10, Wednesday, 5:00 PM,
March 10, Wednesday, 5:00 PM,
April 14, Wednesday, 5:00 PM.
We hope by May to be back at the golf course. We all hope.
I will send out a notice a day or two before with the Zoom meeting I.D. and password. I will admit that Zoom has been a challenge for me. Each meeting will have the same I.D. and password. Wendy Eidbo has graciously offered to be a co-host so none of you are left waiting to enter.
Deb Bordsen has set up our on-line auction coming soon. Thank you, Deb! We will discuss at the next board meeting.
Speaking of fund raising, we had an awesome year in spite of the virus. Pam sent out a recap. Kudos to the fund-raising committee and all of you. We will talk about it at the next meeting (those nuts were really good).
Your ears should have been burning (something my Mom said when she was speaking of me to someone) while I was lunching with Carol and Dana. When I first joined Kiwanis I was so impressed on how close you all were and how much fun you have together. It is a magical group. We’ll be hugging again soon. Thanks for all of you for sharing pictures of past gatherings on Facebook.
I received a note from Hannah McNutt, Donor Resource Rep. with Bloodworks NW. She wants us to know and share with others that they will be at Rosehill Community Center on January 19th and 21st. They have 35 open appointment times. For more information you can email Hannah at : hannahm@bloodworksnw>org.
We need a membership chair. I am that for the Evergreen Arboretum. And I sat in on a Kiwanis statewide discussion with other membership chairs. Lots of good ideas. It’s fun talking to people about something you enjoy.
If anyone has something to share at our meetings, let me know, I will put you on the agenda. Also, if anyone would like to lead in the devotion let me know.
