Our new President Scott Becker called the July 18, 2016 Kirkland Rotary meeting to order promptly at 6:29 p.m.  Dan Bartel was the greeter, George Anderson led the Pledge of Allegiance, and the front desk was manned by Rick Walter [scribe’s note:  I thought there was a committee to run the front desk!].
Scott Rethke provided a fine Inspirational Moment, with quotes from Richard Branson.  Some of the zingers were: “You don’t learn to walk by following rules.  You learn by doing, and by falling over.”  Another quote: “A business has to be involving, it has to be fun and it has to exercise your creative instincts.”  There were other great quotes; however, the scribe’s typing skills are only so good.
Visitors & Visiting Rotarians:  We had one guest, Adam Kushabi.  Adam was introduced to Rotary at a Duck Dash sales venue.  Adam is an architect with an office located in Bothell.  Ran ________ was a visiting Rotarian from one of India’s largest cities.  Ran is a Past-President of his Rotary Club.  He has a daughter living in the area. 
A collaborative effort by Rotary & the City of Kirkland—I’ll have mustard on mine!
It was a beautiful day at Waverly Beach Park under the new Picnic Shelter. Kirkland Rotary spearheaded and effort to raise money and include this project in the city plans for renovation of the park. Kirkland Rotarian Patti Smith tells us “it was a lot of work by the club, the city and the Kirkland Parks Foundation to get it built”. The design work was donated by Galen Page. Everyone was on hand to enjoy the first BBQ including the Mayor and many city officials who enjoyed a dog from Scott Rethke.


6:30 Meeting Open

James Nevers led the pledge

July 11th Meeting will be at the new pavilion on Waverly Beach Park to celebrate the Legacy Project

Rick Walters, inspirational moment with history of Service Above Self

Rich Bergdahl apparently doesn’t prepare, he prefers to fly by the seat of his pants and do things off the cuff.

The Rotary Club of Kirkland had their annual golf tournament at Mt. Si Golf Course. The day was beautiful. Rotarian Harry Wagoner’s team won the tourney shooting 14 under.
In addition to fellowship, the Rotarians and their guests raised over $250 for the Rotary Foundation which donates to many Kirkland charities.

Here is link to scholarship night photos.  What a great night.

Grant survey shows solid support for new model
More than 6,000 Rotary members in 154 countries reported on their experiences with the new grant model as part of an evaluation during the 2015-16 Rotary year. The results will help us improve the grant process and learn what impact the Foundation's global grants have on our areas of focus. Among the key findings: 90 percent of respondents support the grant model; 86 percent see it as an improvement over the former model.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
