Rotary Club of Everett

Everett  Washington 

Saturday, April 22, 2017 witnessed yet another successful AVID Walk a Thon.  We had 31 Students and 27 Rotarians, plus parents, educators and alumni turn out and everyone had a great time.

The highlights of the day were when Edgar, a former AVID grad and current EVCC student turn up to support the event "because he knew how fun it was and because he wanted to stay connected".


Dr. Gary Cohn spoke as well as current Avid Student Marshawna Green from Sequoia High School.


There is a comprehensive set of pictures from the event which is located in the Photo Albums section.  Find the link in the box toward the bottom of this column.



"The Rotary Club of Everett is the pre-eminent professional service club, known for its core values, support of youth education, and for successfully identifying and addressing community and international issues."
Rotary International President John Germ Visits Everett
It seems luck happens when you reach out and grab it.
When George Bowden contacted Rotary International Headquarters in December 2016, he was surprised to learn that RI President John Germ would be visiting the Pacific Northwest in early January. Would a stop in Everett, WA, fit Mr. Germ’s schedule?
It was, after all, the Rotary Club of Everett’s 100th Anniversary Year.
And it worked. Traveling from the District 5040 and 5050 Million Dollar Dinner in British Columbia to the Rotary Foundation Centennial Dinner in Seattle, Mr. Germ would pass right through Everett.
Less than a month was available to plan the event, but the Everett Club found a suitable location and attracted some 160 Rotarians from clubs across Snohomish County. District Governor Scott Dudley ferried John and Judy Germ down from Canada and on January 10, 2017, one century and one month after the Everett Club’s initial meeting, Scott and John addressed the group.
Mr. Germ saluted the club for its local and international efforts, and, with wit and good humor enjoyed by all, delivered an inspiring talk highlighting the positive impact Rotary has had and will have in the world. 
He concluded his visit by recognizing eight Everett Rotarians for their Paul Harris contributions to the Rotary Foundation which, like the Everett Club, celebrates its Centennial this year.

Rotarians Celebrate Arrival of Club Charter a Century Ago


Some 90 members of the Rotary Club of Everett gathered on a vacant downtown parking lot Tuesday to celebrate the 1917 arrival of the club’s official Rotary Charter. The site, at Hewitt and Wetmore, was the location a century ago of Weiser’s Café, where the fledgling club first met.


With club members wearing 1917-style straw hats and derbies, club historian and past president Larry O’Donnell led a reenactment of the time when the club’s first president, Clayton Williams, received the charter from Rotary. The Everett club had formed just a few months before, in December 1916, fostered by Rotary Clubs in Tacoma and Seattle. O’Donnell also saluted the centennial of the Rotary Foundation, created in 1917.

Scholarship Awards 2017

Rotary Celebrates Area Students with $187,700 in Scholarships


Some 51 Snohomish County students gained a head start last night as the Rotary Club of Everett handed out $187,700 in scholarships funded by Rotary members and donors. The grants ranged from $500 to $19,000.

In ceremonies May 22 at the Everett School District’s Community Resource Center, proud parents applauded as young people stepped to the front to receive their awards.

“The Rotary Club of Everett invests our time, talents and treasure in helping youth find pathways for better futures,” said club president Ed Petersen. “This includes successful education outcomes, understanding the transformative value of service and becoming global citizens. These scholarships are the culminating contribution in our Rotary year.” In total, the club has handed out more than $3.3 million in scholarships.

Rotarians work closely with school counselors to identify scholarship prospects. Those nominees are then interviewed by Rotary members, who make the final selection.

Supporting youth is a major focus for the Rotary Club of Everett. Club members share their business experiences with students participating in the school district’s AVID (Achievement Via Individual Determination) program, and in April helped organize the AVID HighFive Walkathon fundraiser for AVID projects. The club also participates in student exchange programs by sending local students overseas and hosting students from other countries.
