The Rotary Club of Kirkland’s Cross Kirkland Corridor Pavilion project is nearly four years in the making, and this month the project is approaching completion.  The picnic Pavilion was largely funded by the Rotary club and recently installed by the city of Kirkland.  All that remains to complete the Pavilion project is installation of picnic tables purchased with the assistance of a Rotary District 5030 grant, and railroad history signage funded by a grant from 4Culture, King County’s cultural funding agency, and with assistance from the Kirkland Heritage Society.
 
Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Armed Forces Day, and Pearl Harbor Day recognize the sacrifices of so many who have known service in the United States military.  During December, Rotarians heard a heart-warming presentation by Bill Knudsen of Puget Sound Honor Flights, a non-profit that honors veterans of World War II, and the Korean and Vietnam wars.
 
Each year the Rotary Club of Kirkland gathers its membership around the spirit of holiday giving, and the club’s core value of service to others before self.  As the coronavirus pandemic upended plans for the club’s traditional holiday gift giving party for needy children in the Kirkland community, Rotarians decided that the tradition of helping our community through the holidays had to continue, and created the holiday gift project.
 
In cooperation with the Lake Washington School District, 111 family members were identified for holiday gift-giving, and are looking forward to Rotarians’ generosity of treasure, talent, and time this month.

 
In November, Kirkland Rotarians heard politics and elections insights from four seasoned professionals deeply involved in politics, elections, and government history.  The Politics & Elections Series began with political operative Karen Waters, president of Strategies 360, a major political consulting firm in the region.
 
Rotary's October program series highlighted several local women business leaders, each of whom described their respective business experiences, the impact of the pandemic on their operations, and their views on the future in a post-pandemic environment.  Speakers addressed the current business climate in view of the news on national and local economic conditions and outlook.

Telemedicine is expanding the reach of health care

For patients who lack options, a virtual visit can mean the difference between going with or without care.

In communities with no services, incremental steps can go a long way

When Rotary members tried to bring toilets to a remote island, the population wasn’t ready.

The future: What can we expect when we get there?

As we stand at the threshold of the third decade of the 21st century, imagine where we’re
