Ginny White

Office Manager-Symmetry Chiropractic

Ginny at Mud Hut Project
 
Ginny’s name is Virginia, but she goes by Ginny.  She was born and raised in Arlington.  She comes from a large family that moved here from Illinois.  Ginny’s parents divorced when she was young, and she is one of 11 children between both families as both of her parent remarried. Ginny is the second youngest child.  Ginny went to Kent Prairie Elementary, Post Middle School and Arlington High School and is a product of the Arlington School District.  Ginny’s grandparents raised her because her mother worked a lot in Seattle for Regence Blue Cross.  Disfunction is her normal, that is why she thrives under chaos.

District Governor's Visit

Beverly Harrington-Governor Rotary District 5050
 
Our own Duane Rhodes, the Assistant District Governor for our Area J, introduced our District Governor Bev Harrington from the Burlington Club. Bev joined Rotary in 2005 due to its focus on "Service Above Self" and the opportunity to join with others to make a difference locally and internationally.  She is a graduate of the Rotary Leadership Institute and served as her club’s president in 2016-2017.  Because “Doing Good in the World” requires financial resources, she is a member of the Paul Harris Society and a Major Donor of The Rotary Foundation.  To see a more extensive biography click HERE.

DG Bev opened her presentation by telling us that connecting is more important than just fellowship, a theme that she carried into a later exercise.

Have you ever watched a motion picture that starts out in black and white and as the story line unfolds, as the characters are revealed, as substance expands, the film begins to take on color and eventually the director has the motion picture in vivid….live color. There is depth and understanding of the people on the screen? I don’t know if you relate to that, but that is how I feel when I meet people for the 1st time. And as I learn their story, they turn from black and white to color. Most often beautiful and radiant colors.

2021 in Review

It has been an experience keeping a Rotary club engaged during a pandemic.  In January we continued where we left off in 2020, with our meeting being on Zoom only.  With progress on vaccinations and the lessening of restrictions, and a survey of our members indicating a willingness to return to in person meetings, our tech wizard, Paul Abramowicz, took on the task of planning for hybrid meetings.  For the first time since March 12, 2020, we were able to have our first in person (Hybrid) meeting on April, 29, 2021, at the Centennial Bar and Grill. Because of supply problems, we ended the year meeting in the community room (Hadley Hall) at the Boys and Girls Club. Here is a review of each month:
 

January

Our first speaker of the year was Ali Bradley, a broadcast journalist, with Q13Fox News.  Other speakers during January included Chief Dave Kraski on the proposed annexation with North County Fire, and Ilene Levering with Sherwood Community Services.  One of or newer members, Jeff Wise gave us his classification talk as a retired printer.
 
At our annual meeting on January 21, we elected Jim Kelly as our president for Rotary year 2023-24, as well as other officers and directors.

February

 
During the pandemic, our club sponsored quarterly blood drives.  The first of those in 2021 was on February 8.
 
Speakers during month included Karri Matau, President and CEO of the Community Foundation of Snohomish County, James Madison, an artist with the Tulalip Tribe, and Garth Fell, Snohomish County Auditor talking about the election process in Snohomish County.

Arlington Pump Track

A Possible Club Project

About 4 years ago Mark Everett ,the Owner of Velo Sport and Greg Winters did a Rotary presentation and Mark had set up a portable pump track in the parking lot of the shop in Downtown Arlington. This peaked Bill’s interest. Then, one day he was at the Splash Pad and was excited about how great the Splash Pad was and wanted something for older kids.  Bill brought the idea to the our club and we wanted to go forward with creating a Pump Track for older kids to use.

After talking to the City, it has been decided to place the pump track at Jensen Park by Safeway.  The City would also like a bathroom
