Seattle Rotary Online is a significant marketing opportunity that is available to organizations that wish to help co-sponsor it. Intended as a library where you can just pull a speaker’s presentation off the shelf, Seattle Rotary Online has been sponsored by First Choice Health CEO, Ken Hamm. Ken is willing to share the financial load (and public awareness!) with companies or other organizations that wish broader awareness within the club or community.
Sponsorships are available for as little as $500Please contact Seattle 4 Rotarian, David Endicott by email or at 206-409-3275.

Meet @ the Old Stove Brewery
The fellowship committee invites you to join this very unique fellowship event with a little bit of service inserted in the fun!  
In preparation for the historic Grand Opening of the Pike Place Market’s new expansion on June 29th, Seattle 4 Rotary has the unique opportunity to leave our service fingerprint on the expansion by helping install more than 6,000 inscribed charms on the railing of the new MarketFront! 
We will start at 5pm at one of the new vendors of the expansion, Old Stove Brewery,  on the corner of 1st & Pine for no-host food and pints and then walk down onto the new Plaza (not yet open to the public) to help hang charms until 8:30pm.   Here is the link to discover more about the Charms
This is a family friendly event and a perfect service event for your kids so they can tell their children that they were a part of helping serve in the grand opening of one of Seattle’s most iconic landmarks.
For all other questions and to RSVP for this event, contact Lillian Sherman at
