Duck Bucks Awarded to a Night To Shine
Silverdale Rotary awarded $1,000 in Duck Bucks to the local Silverdale newlife event “Night to Shine” on February 7, 2020.  There were more than 500 attendees and 700 volunteers. This was the 5th year for the special needs prom. Photo below is from 2019.
Night to Shine is a prom for people ages 14 and older who have special needs, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation and hosted by newlife.  Every guest of Night to Shine enters their prom on a red carpet complete with welcoming friendly paparazzi.  Once inside, guests receive VIP treatment, including hair and makeup stations, shoe shining stations, corsages and boutonnieres, a karaoke room and dancing! The highlight of the night comes when every Night to Shine guest is crowned as a king or queen of the prom.

Speaker on February 6 - Anna Choi 
Anna Choi – Conscious Business Coach, spoke to the Club on February 6.  She was a financial advisor, and then quit to stay at home with kids. Then her husband decided to stay at home with the kids, and Anna started business coaching.
Five Keys to Time Freedom:  What does time freedom mean to you and what is time freedom?  The group brainstormed some ideas like peace, balance, calm. Then Ms. Choi listed four major global trends:
  1. This is the age of big data.
  2. We are constantly adapting to change.
  3. We are overwhelmed with having to make decisions.
  4. We are constantly interrupted and distracted.
Five Keys to Time Freedom
  1. Add Yin to your Yang.
  2. Leverage your genius and stay in the flow.
  3. Invest in the right team.
  4. Value your time and understand the value of your time.
  5. Energize your daily flow:
    1. Have a morning ritual
    2. Master your mood
    3. Moving meditation
Duck Race Sponsorship Drive in Full Swing
Duck Race Chair Rick Soper reminded us that we need sponsors for the 2020 race! Please spread the word. We are already starting to put up ducks throughout the community with signs asking for sponsorship. Connect with Rick Soper for more information. 
It is time to add new businesses to our rolls by promoting both the philanthropic and marketing benefits that come with Duck Race sponsorship. Jennifer Strong and Erin Shannon are contacting each club member so that we can wrap up sponsor recruitment by early March.  The objective is to print tickets and get an early start on selling.
