February 15th Morning Meeting at HP Golf Course

Good Sunday members!

We have an important week ahead of us: within a few days, I will be sending out another survey for all members to vote on the Articles of Incorporation for the Mukilteo Kiwanis Foundation we will be setting up. Kiwanis rules determine that the membership vote and approve these Articles of Incorporation, then KI gets to review them. The purpose of Articles of Incorporation is the corporate charter that is eventually approved by the Washington Secretary of State. They state the specific purpose of the new foundation and how any remaining assets be distributed should the foundation cease to exist; the foundation’s assets must be distributed to KI, another non-profit or a government agency. Please check your email with the subject: Approval of Mukilteo Kiwanis Foundation Articles of Incorporation. We’ll need at least 30 member approvals.  More info on Wednesday.

Our speaker this week is our own Kim Voetberg getting us up to speed on all the Chamber’s activities this year, including the trip to Scotland next fall. Agenda attached.

Also attached is an updated Club calendar; we will again have our evening meeting at Jimmy Mac’s on February 22. While January’s meeting was disruptive, they are going out of their way to make it better for us. After all their support for last year’s Salmon Bake, we should give it another try. Bringing a portable PA system may be a good idea.

Plans for our Pancake breakfast (Saturday March 11) are moving forward; Joanie has about 24 baskets committed for the raffle. Members, you are the best!! Packs for Kids is the next day, and we still need some volunteers. There is a planning meeting this Wednesday, February 15 at 3:30 at StockPot Foods on Merrill Parkway. E-mail Oran if you want more information: oran.osterman@gmail.com.

The Board approved the membership application of Riaz Khan, welcome Riaz! He was sponsored by Paul and Ron. We’ll plan his initiation soon.  Lots of announcements on the second page of the Agenda, please take a few moments to review.

Hope to see you on Wednesday morning at Harbour Pointe Golf Club.

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!
