Greetings, Fellow Kiwanians!

Thank you to all the members and guests who attended this morning’s club meeting! A much better showing than last week. I am hopeful to see more members attend our meetings. Welcome, Mario Lotmore. I am happy you were able to join us this morning.

CONGRATULATIONS to our newest club member: NOEL GOFORTH, and thank you to Cheryl Wynn for sponsoring Noel. Welcome the Mukilteo Kiwanis Family, Noel. Let’s partner together to serve our community.

To our speaker, Eric Stewart of StemTree, huge thanks for an educational presentation on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math! We will ensure to share our continued support of Science!!

An even bigger thanks to the club members who delivered dictionaries last week Wednesday to the 3rd graders of Discovery Elementary, Lake Stickney, and Odyssey.

Orca News Clip – Mukilteo Kiwanis Club Dictionary Donation


Thanks to the following members for delivering dictionaries today.

Olivia Park Elementary – Al Zugel

Fairmount Elementary – Annie Johnson

Challenger Elementary – Natalie & Kevin LaChapelle



I am very pleased to announce the return of this program. The majority of the members agreed this morning to donate $10 towards this program. Our goal is to purchase 13 grocery cards for underserved families to purchase thanksgiving meals. These cards are designed to only purchase thanksgiving meal items.

Each meal cost approximately $50. We have 68 members. If each member donates $10, we will be able to reach our goal of serving 13 families with a few bucks left over.

The following members have already donated $10.

Cheryl Wynn

Noel Goforth

Paul Salas

Steve Palmer (donated $20)

  1. Dear Mukilteo Kiwanis Club,

    Do you have a Mailing Address? We wanted to send you a letter from the Edmonds Community College Summer Youth Camps Program. We are hoping you can help us with scholarships for low-income kids who want to attend our Summer Camps.

    Thank you!
    Kathy Schumer
    Community Education Program
