Mount Vernon Rotary Club Completes a 5-Year Commitment of $100,000 to Skagit YMCA
 
---
Goals are good. Very Good. When our club made the commitment to help fund the local YMCA in 2016, it was a stretch. We had not made a commitment of that size in more than ten years. Our 2016 Auction had been successful, but the commitment to the YMCA meant we had to be all in on our auctions for the coming years. We originally committed $50,000, but 2016 Club President Dave Courtney thought we could do better and brought it back to the club to reconsider.
Club members enjoyed a great evening at The Grand Willow Inn celebrating Pres. Isaac's year and installing Pres. Dave's new board for 2016 - 17. Outgoing board members Stacey Salyer (Sec.) and Tiffany Urland (Past Pres.) were recognized. Outgoing President Isaac Williams recognized Ian Crawford with the 'Rising Star' Award and Stacey Salyer with the John Bustad award for dedicated service and commitment to the Rotary ideals. In the photo (rt) Pat Grenfell was honored with her 8th Paul Harris Fellow Award.
Mount Vernon Rotary Club's 17th Annual Benefit Auction was a wonderful success.  Thank you to all who helped us make a difference both here in our community and internationally.
 
President Tiffany Urland recently awarded Mount Vernon club member Pat Grenfell her seventh Paul Harris Award. Pat is a second generation Rotarian, her father was a member of the Bellingham club. Since joining the Mount Vernon club in 1999, Pat has served in many roles of leadership including Club President in 2007-2008. She is now District 5050 Area I Assistant Governor.  Along with her leadership capabilities, Pat is a caterer and can pull together the food for a club function in barely a blink of an eye. You won't find a more committed Rotarian, truly a shining example of Service Above Self. 
 
Senior Awards and Scholarship Night is always a special evening for the students and it was no different in 2014. Mount Vernon Rotary is happy to honor the hard work of 13 students who will receive scholarships for continuing education.  Pictured here are 9 of the 13 recipients of the Lyle Poolman Scholarship. Back Row (L-R): Kevin Hunter, Adan Hernandez, Amy Feeney and Cristian Rocha. Front Row (L-R): MV Rotary member Anne Clark, Cristal Aguilar, Janet Solano-Cruz and Leslie Rojas.
 

Pat Grenfell and Tiffany Urland had a great time at Pacific Northwest PETS training and were honored to meet Rotary International Incoming President Gary C.K. Huang and his lovely wife Corinna.

On Saturday, April 27 three Mount Vernon Rotarians-- Armin Mohr, Clarence Holden and Jim VanderMey completed a project at Mount Vernon Manor, placing two garden boxes and fill them with topsoil at Mount Vernon Manor. Along with physical muscle, our club purchased and donated the topsoil.
