Rotary Fellowship

My how time flies.  It hardly seems as if next week is the end of the month.  Well, it almost is.  We'll mix it up a bit this month.  Mark you calendars for a fellowship event on Thursday the 27th at 5:30 at Canyons in Redmond.  It's not too tough to find; maybe a wedge from the Hyatt House.

Hope to see you there.

Todd & AJ Need Your Help



1.       Rotary Youth Exchange/Opportunities to Host Students.  We’ve received some inquiries concerning whether anyone in our club would be interested in hosting students as part of Rotary Youth Exchange.  We’ve received a separate inquiry concerning whether anyone has any interest in hosting students from Spain this summary attending an English immersion program.  If anyone has any interest, please contact Todd Wyatt.

Our Hearts Ache

Arthur Sawe   June 8 1989  January 1 2014

Not, how did he die, but how did he live?
Not, what did he gain, but what did he give?
These are the units to measure the worth
Of a man as a man, regardless of his birth.
Nor what was his church, nor what was his creed?
But had he befriended those really in need?
Was he ever ready, with words of good cheer,
To bring back a smile, to banish a tear?
Not what did the sketch in the newspaper say,
But how many were sorry when he passed away?

Together Center Garners Matching Rotary Gift

Together Center, which received a 2013 grant from the club, let Rotary Club of Redmond know it had received the necessary matching grants to move ahead with purchase of a touch screen for its front door services program. The club’s grant will be combined with that of Puget Sound Energy,  Microsoft, and Issaquah Rotary.  The touch screen for the lobby of the one-stop campus of 18 agencies will allow Together Center to better help people navigate to the services they need in 2014!

Kalushi Project Presentation

During the holiday season, Bill and Karen Feldt (Bill is Past International Chair for district 5030) and Paul Osborn of the Bellevue Breakfast club visited with us to discuss the the Kalulushi Project in Zambia. The three are very involved in the project to battle malaria, which is an effort of about 20 district clubs, including Redmond Rotary. Among a number of strategies, the Rotarian Malaria Partnership is distributing mosquito netting impregnated with insecticide. The objective of this initiative is not only to help reduce Zambia’s 3 million cases of malaria, but to develop a replicable and sustainable model for significant Rotary service in eradicating malaria in Africa.
