Former Rotary Club of Redmond member AC Sherpa, who used to dazzle us with his climbing stories, stopped by with a few words today about his 7 Summits Foundation and its work (since 2010) to help Nepal. He suggested a $35 donation at his website would pay for one tent being created in Nepal, where he returns in a few days. Over a million are currently without shelter. Visit www.7SummitsFoundation.org to support AC's efforts.

Zac noted his father's passion for education.
 
 
 

 
 
The Spokane Bike Swap was a really fun event! Redspoke, the annual Redmond to Spokane bicycle evenet, was on the floor Saturday and Sunday. We met many people interested in the “riding home” aspect RedSpoke would provide local residents. We also made some good connections with a number of the Eastside Rotary clubs over the weekend. Overall, a great experience… we are now definitely on the radar over in Spokane!
 
 
 

 
 
Rotarian Barbara Hagel of Hopelink, left, presents president Pam Mauk and Hopelink food drive coordinator Vicky Nollette, right, with recognition award for Redmond Rotary's participation in March Can Madness.  This year’s Hopelink Can Madness competition was a huge success bringing in almost 48,000 of food and $5,500 in cash donations. The results are doubled last year’s donations and allow us to serve 1,000 families through our food bank program.  Many, many thanks to club members for their support and a special thank you to Vicky Nollette for her leadership!

Dr Mark Markuly presented a brief outline of the extent of the homeless situation in the Seattle area.  Despite real effort over the past decade the problem has continued to grow here faster than most major metropolitan areas.  A new 10 year plan is being put in place applying the leassons learned from here and other cities to accelerate the process of getting people back on their feet.
 
 

 
 
The Redmond Rotary RedSpoke team hit the advertising trail at the new Seattle Bike Show that took place at the CenturyLink Field Event Center Feb. 28-March 1st. This year’s event was coupled with the NW Golf and Travel Show greatly increasing the number of participants that stopped by our booth. Many past (and hopefully future) riders stopped by to say “hi” and inquire about this year’s event. Thanks to all that helped out and allowed our club and event to stay relevant in the Washington cycling community. Bill Rissberger and Balaji Bhaskar, shown here, were two of the many volunteers to help out. 
 
 

 
 
February Students of the Month are Elizabeth (Liz ) James (senior) & Hannah Forsyth.  Congradulations Girls!
