In May, Kirkland Rotarians learned about efforts in the community to keep adults and young people on track for success.  An exceptional combination of speakers described community support structures about which community members do not often hear news.  Judge John Olson explained the new community court operation launched by the city of Kirkland's municipal court.  Lake Washington School District Associate Superintendent Matt Gillingham updated Rotarians on how community truancy boards are working to keep students in school.  Then, Youth Eastside Services' Kristie Neklason, director of school-based behavioral health, described programs offered for youth and young adults in partnership with the school district and the city.
In April, Rotarians heard an array of views from large firms in the Kirkland area.  Kristian Uri, operations manager of Fisherman's Finest, a major, woman-owned, seafood processing firm located in Kirkland, provided insight into the firm’s Alaskan sea fisheries and major investments in state-of-the-art processing ships and staff health maintenance.  Marketing Director Mary Miller updated the club on the progress of --and provided an introduction to-- the new Aegis Living facility opening soon on Lake Washington Boulevard.
Kirkland Rotarians focused on international projects during March.  Ezra Teshome conveyed the success of efforts to eradicate Polio in Africa, and described the work resulting in the last pandemic country, Nigeria, being declared polio-free last August.  Bella Chaffey, Pauline Kamanja, and Kristin Olson reported on the Samburu Medical Camp in northern Kenya, and the Rotary Club of Costalegre, Barra de Navidad, Mexico, work on middle school safety improvements.
