Fireside at Loren Hole's Home
On Friday, February 16th, Club members gathered at Loren Hole's home for a fun-filled evening for our annual Fireside get together. Pictured are gin looking cookies honoring Loren's penchant for having a gin and tonic at 5 pm sometimes alone and many times with visitors.
Loren is the elder statesman of the Club and Joyce Bell, a founding member of our Club was in attendance as we had so much fun talking about past accomplishments, looking at the future and sharing stories of family and friends.
Camp Korey
Our guest speaker on Friday, February 16th was Nicole Ellis, Community Engagement Manager at Camp Korey. We appreciate the fact that she drove from Bellingham to be with us for our 7:30 am meeting.
Camp Korey - Where imagination sparks the spirit, wishes come true &  childhood comes first. The camp provides empowering adaptive year-round programs for children and their families living with life-altering medical conditions-free of charge.
In 2012, Camp Korey became an official member of SeriousFun Children's Network, founded by actor Paul Newman. Together, they provide children living with serious illnesses a spectacular camp experience and high-quality medical care, all in the safest and most supportive environment. And for the kids, it's high-flying friendship-building memory-making fun.
Camp Korey is named for Korey Rose, a vivacious teen who lost his battle with bone cancer at age eighteen (2004). His father, Tim Rose, founded Camp Korey in 2005 with his family to honor Korey's memory and create a haven for other families dealing with childhood illness and serious medical conditions.  Paul Newman's SeriousFun Camps, which he established in 1988, inspired Tim to extend the privilege of "raising a little hell" to kids in the Northwest.
Camp Korey operated as an "on-the-road" program for three years before moving to the City of Carnation in June 2008 and launching its first two camper sessions just two weeks later.  In the summer of 2016, Camp Korey purchased a 200 acre property on Lake McMurray near Mount Vernon with plans to expand the conditions and numbers served.  According to Nicole, Paul Newman visited the camp before he died and his daughter has since visited the camp on numerous occasions.
Boeing Update
Our guest speaker on Friday, February 9th was Rich White Senior Manager Government Relations for the Boeing Company. This is Rich's third visit to our Club with past visits on November 2017 and 2020. Rich started his presentation with an apology for the door plug issue which Boeing has conveyed to Alaska Airlines and passengers while giving the crew a sincere congratulations for their professionalism in handling the return to the airport.
Boeing started in 1916 by Bill Boeing launched the new airline out of the Red Barn in Seattle. Bill Boeing started in the timber business in Hoquiam, WA with assistance from George Weyerhaeuser. Boeing is a 107 year old company and the day of our meeting was the anniversary of the first flight of the Boeing 747 out of Paine Field.
Rich commented that passenger market is nearing pre-covid levels and that single-aisle aircraft are returning to growth while the wide-body recovery is around 85%. Otherwise the wide-body is still in recovery mode. Airlines will need 42,595 new airplanes over the next 20 years. Service life of an airplane is approximately 25 years.
The Everett plant produces the wide body airplanes while Renton produces the 737.  Boeing donated $50 million dollars in 2022 to Washington community organizations. In 1917 Boeing's first charitable contribution was made to the University of Washington for the Wind Tunnel. Versatility is the key to future aircraft market needs. There are 67,000+ employees and over 1,000 suppliers in Washington.  The Everett site has 33,000 employees.
