Happy Sunny Sunday everyone!
We had a very successful Pancake Breakfast on Saturday at Historic Flight Foundation’s Aviation Day. Huge thank you to Pam and Gary for all of their help to make it happen, and to Adrian and Joe manning the grills, Joanie as hostess with the mostess, Nora at the cash register, Dana with the Key Clubbers, Daph as our “go to” as no task was too small to tackle, Ron for keeping our line moving. Thanks Captain Dan for getting us some grills and Tim keeping them going, Gary for renting the coffee pots, and our selfless members who loaded and unloaded trucks with all of our stuff and took it back again Saturday night. This event was our first try, and while there are many things to improve, there were lots of happy customers. We grossed over $1,000 and hope to have some earnings info on Wednesday once we know what our food costs were.

Pam Taylor Named “2017 Citizen of the Year”


Long-time Kiwanis member Pam Taylor has been named the “2017 Citizen of the Year.” 14 years ago, Pam developed a strong relationship with Cocoon House, a non-profit agency in Snohomish County that serves homeless youth. She has organized monthly Kiwanis Club of Mukilteo volunteer dinners at the Everett shelter the second Sunday of each month, providing nutritious food and fellowship for residents and staff. Pam has also been very involved with her husband Tim in organizing and leading the Mukilteo Kiwanis’ Foundation Salmon Bake at the Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival each September.

Please join us in congratulating Pam and join us at the special reception in her honor to be held at the Harbour Pointe Senior Living Center; date TBD.





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!
