Fun at After Hours, Fundraising &

District Events

This spring our members have had fun at an after hours social event, the Boys and Girls Club Auction, and the District 5050 Conference Cruise.  

After Hours at Asgard Massage

Steffen Emard invited our members to an after hours social event at his business, Asgard Massage.  In addition to wine and crackers, members and guests were given 10 minutes sample massages.  Here are some of the photos from the event:

Boys and Girls Club Auction

Rotarians and guests had 3 tables at the recent Boys and Girls Club Auction.  The club's unit director is one of our members. Lyanne Rolf. This was her first auction as director and a record amount was raised to support the Arlington Boys and Girls Club/  Here are some photos:

District 5050 Conference Cruise

6 of our members and their guests boarded the Holland America's Eurodam cruise ship on Tuesday May 8 for a 4 day cruise with stops at Victoria and Vancouver, B.C.  On Wednesday there were break out sessions for an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening.  The late morning and early afternoon gave members an opportunity to visit Victoria.
Thursday was a day of cruising up the Inland Passage, so there were 2 Plenary Sessions.  Speakers included Olympic Bronze Medal winner Paul Kingsman from New Zealand talking about setting goals and avoiding distractions. There were also some awards including one to our member, Dr. Lee Harman, for his effort at helping eradicate polio.  
Speakers in the afternoon included R.I. President's representative, John Prendergast, from New Zealand, delivering a message from our R.I. President.  Shirley Grace, a past district governor in California, who has also served at the zone level, shared her passion for community and international humanitarian projects.
Here are some photos from the cruise:
Next year's cruise will be April 11-14 at the Tulalip Resort.  It will be a traditional conference and, because it is our backyard, and not on a cruise ship, there will be opportunities to attend all or parts of the conference.  Thursday evening, for those arriving early, there will be a tour of Paul Allen's Flying Heritage Museum.  Our members will be asked to have visitors into their home for dinner Friday night.  "Home Hosting" is a great opportunity to get to know Rotarians from through out our district.
