Rotary Club of Lake Stevens
Thank You to Our
Viking Coin Quest Sponsors
On Saturday, the Board approved the membership applications of three local citizens.  The new members are: Amelia Mimura, Retired, Musician and President of the Lake Senior Center, sponsored by Gary O'Rielly;  Brian Lewandowski, President of Lake Stevens Roofing, sponsored by Jim Haugen and Chris Jacobson, Account Executive, Convergent Technologies, sponsored by Jim Haugen.
Welcome our newest members!  We continue to grow our membership. 
Attorney General Bob Ferguson was our guest speaker at our meeting on Friday, July 12th. Ferguson is the 18th Attorney General of Washington Staate.  As the state's chief legal officer, he is committed to protecting the people of Washington. Ferguson is a fourth-generation Washingtonian, a graduate of the University of Washington and New York University law school. He and his wife Colleen are the parents of 11 year old twins.
Dr. Coyte Cooper is a bestselling author, international speaker and high performance coach who is one of the premier experts in the area of leadership and maximizing human potential. A former NCAA Division 1 All-American, college professor and the current founder/CEO of Ollin Leadership.
Our Scout Troop presented the flags at the home game of the Lake Stevens Valkyries game on Saturday, June 29th at Lake Stevens High School Stadium. The previous weekend the Troop welcomed three new members from our Pack at a beautiful crossover ceremony at Camp Edward Scout Camp. The Troop will be going to its first summer camp early next month. This would be a great opportunity to go visit them.
Saving the best for the last meeting of President Kevin O'Brien is giving financial contributions to our local non-profits pictured here beginning  with Hungary Hearts;  Sherwood Community Services;  the Lake Stevens Senior Center and the Lake Stevens Education Foundation. They all do such awesome work in our community and our two major fundraisers are the reason our Club can give back to these community organizations.
What's going on with El Presidente Kevin and Sergeant at Arms DJ? Trying to avoid fines when he is Past President? Your guess is as good as mine! 
As one of Kevin's last meeting actions was to give Tracy her Board Service gift given to the other Board members during the Annual Meeting and installation banquet.
Wow, Colin and Kevin O'Brien starting the evening festivities with a song "I Like Lake Stevens Rotary" from a John Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Enchanting and very entertaining evening.
Exchange of the Gavel-President Kevin presents the gavel to incoming President Laurie, who officially takes office on 1 July. The Oath of Office by Laurie's Dad Loren, a Past President and receiving the Club President's pin from her mother Lorna cap a wonderful ceremony for our Club.
