This Week's Meeting
The featured speaker at this week's meeting is Elizabeth Michaud, Director of Membership at the Marysville Branch of the Snohomish County Y. Elizabeth was last with us in March of 2023. Snohomish County Y has been serving and strengthening our communities since 1901. Through the Y's three Areas of Impact--Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility--the impact goes far beyond just a place to go to or do things at (swim, exercise, hang out), but rather set solid foundations for youth and families to make impacts for a lifetime. Come and hear about the latest news about the Y!
 
Also, don't forget to sign up for the District Assembly coming up on April 6th. All members are welcome to participate and the first five are paid for. Will you be one of those five? Our Club pays for five people to participate whether or not we send people. The Assembly is an excellent training opportunity for Rotarians of all experiences. This is for New Club Officers, Rotarians who want to network, develop relations with other Rotarians, learn from other Rotarians in our District, and newer Rotarians who would like to better understand the value and meaning of Rotary. Contact President Don and let him know you're interested.
 
The Scholarship Application is now live! Share the news with the students in the Lake Stevens School District. The Deadline is Friday, April 12th! We have two applications available- one for those who want to pursue higher education at a college or university, the other for those interested in trade, vocational or technical schools. Our scholarships is perhaps the biggest thing we do as a Club in Lake Stevens. Share this link - https://lakestevensrotaryscholarship.org/
