Stories
Our guest speaker February 3, 2017 was Dr. Mike Mallahan accompanied by our former member Barbara Knowles updating us on the Monterrico Education Center and Clinic. Dr. Mallahan commented that because of our Club's good work on the Monterrico project he decided to join the Rotary Club of Mill Creek six years ago and currently the Club President.
 
The Monterrico Clinic is now staffed by Cuban doctors. Most people in Guatemala lack access to proper health care. Currently, the Monterrico Clinic has a audiologist on staff. Monterrico is now a working clinic. Recently, more than 50 people spent their holiday or vacation time serving the Hospital Quirigua Work on evaluations with surgery follow ups and more working on the community outreach clinic.
 
 
A Rotary Moment by Tracy DeLorm last Friday turned into a very Big Surprise for her visiting mother, Judi Richardson. During last Friday's meeting, Tracy talked about her mother and the influence she had on getting her involved and being part of the community activities reflecting as well as reflecting on Paul Harris and Rotary. After a brief commentary, Tracy asked her mother to come forward, in shock and surprise her mother Judi was given a Paul Harris award courtesy of Tracy. Helping in the presentation was our President, Sam Low and our Rotary Foundation chair Jim Haugen. What a wonderful surprise for Judi and the entire club. I'm sure it was the topic of her conversation during their shopping trip to downtown Seattle and a visit with Tracy's sister. Another, ALL IN THE FAMILY moment. Former member and Tracy's husband, Dave, was on hand to capture the moment in pictures.

Congratulation Judi from the members of the Rotary Club of Lake Stevens

She travels to Pakistan frequently to see the results of the program's efforts there.
 
Polio Eradication - In 1985, Rotary launched its PolioPlus program, the first initiative to tackle global eradication through massive vaccination of children. Rotary has contributed more than $1.5 billion and countless volunteer hours to immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. In 1985 there were 350,000 cases of polio in the world. There were 125 endemic countries. Today there are three
 
In 1997, Bill and Melinda Gates read an article on rotavirus. In 2000, they officially launched their polio eradication program. An announcement at the Rotary International Convention in Lisbon, Portugal set the stage for a bold new chapter in the partnership between Rotary and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

A rare event in the history of the Rotary Club of Everett occurred when the Club hosted RI President John and Judy Germ at their meeting on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at the Holiday Inn Downtown. Thirteen area Rotary Clubs were there for this historic event celebrating the Rotary Club of Everett's Century of Service including seven members from our club. The Rotary Club of Everett has several children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren Clubs including ours!
 
 
RI President John Germ and his wife Judy are from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Germ is Board Chair and Chief Executive Officer of Campbell and Associates Ins,  consulting engineers. Germ joined Rotary in 1976. He has numerous awards and honors such as the Young Man of the Year award in 1970; Engineer of the Year-1986; Volunteer Fundraiser of the Year-1992 and Tennessee Community Volunteer of the Year, 2009. Germ is the recipient of the Boy Scouts of America Silver Beaver Award and the Arthritis Foundation Circle of Hope Award. In 2013, the White House recognized him as a Champion of Change. His activities and offices in Rotary are long and numerous, serving with distinction.
Last week's meeting was a Club Assembly with most of the discussion on the April 21st Wine, Beer and Silent Auction.
 
Each member is responsible for securing an advertiser, sponsoring two gift baskets for the auction, 2 bottles of wine and 2 large bottles of beer.  Sponsors vs. Advertisers. We prefer to use the event as an opportunity to advertise a merchants business. We need to secure all advertisers by March 1st. Tickets will be available shortly thereafter. The main goal is to have all advertisers listed on all of our materials.
 
All Club Members are asked to be available on April 21st to work this very important fundraiser. Set up will begin at 2 pm on April 21st at the Everett Community College.  Each member will be given a specific task for that evening. Our goal is to raise $25,000-$30,000 so that we can increase our scholarship awards dollars and the amount we contribute to local non-profits and community activities.

At our December 30th Meeting, 44th State Legislative District Representative John Lovick, told the members that the upcoming State Legislative session will be one of the hardest ever due to the mandate to fully fund education. The questions are "Where is the money coming from?" "What will we have to give up in order to achieve this goal?" "Will this be accomplished in this session?"
 
Other issues before the Washington State House and Senate include transportation and social services. Lovick thanked Club President Sam Low and Club Member State Senator Steve Hobbs for their service to the public. He also thanked the members for being invested in the community. Lovick serves on the House Education Committee and House Appropriations Committee. Lovick has a long public service career starting with the US Coast Guard. He then served as a Washington State Patrol Trooper and Sergeant. He also served on the Mill Creek City Council, nine years as our State Representative before serving as Snohomish County Sheriff and then Snohomish County Executive. Thank you Representative Lovick for your visit!
The American Red Cross-Snohomish County chapter is celebrating their 100th Anniversary. Chuck Morrison joined us on December 16th to give us an update on the American Red Cross-Snohomish County chapter. This year's Hero's Breakfast raised $327,000. Chuck discussed going forward over the next 100 years instead of reflecting on the last 100 years. OSO created such a huge impact on our area on communities like Darrington, OSO and Arlington which continues today. Recently, the Darrington community North Counties Family Services through a American Red Cross grant was able to buy the distinctive wood building that was vacant for the past 13 years is across from the Darrington IGA store.
Our guest speaker on December 23rd, was Judge George Bowden, a long-time member of the Rotary Club of Everett. Judge Bowden announced that John Germ, President,  Rotary International would be the guest speaker at their meeting on January 10th. This is really great opportunity to hear from the leader of Rotary International. Space is limited to 450 and reservation deadline listed earlier in our bulletin is January 6th.
 
 
 
Important Information

"The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing."

"Too many people go through life complaining about their problems. I've always believed that if you took one tenth the energy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem, you'd be surprised by how well things can work out."
