Home Page Stories
On January 3, the Rotary Club of Kirkland held its first hands-on community service event of 2023, and one of the first such events since COVID-19 disrupted everyone's ability to gather and contribute our labors to the community. Ten Rotarians worked diligently from 10 a.m. to just past noon sorting and packing packages of donated foodstuffs for distribution to Hopelink's area food banks. Members were so efficient that everything was sorted and packed in an hour, and Hopelink personnel had to set out several more pallets on which the volunteers could work. Hopelink personnel professed themselves amazed at how efficiently Kirkland Rotarians worked, and expressed a fervid hope that club members would volunteer again. Another work date is in the planning stages, perhaps in the evening when even more Rotarians might be able to participate.  Members and "Members by Marriage" participating included Rick Walter, Joanne Primavera, Rick Ostrander, John Pruitt, Patti Smith, Dave Aubry, Anna Aubry, Jim Meniketti, Doug Evanson, and Don Dicks. Thank you again to all the volunteers for "pitching in".
What do you get when you add together the Rotary Club of Kirkland, the Christmas season, and Fred Meyer? You get holiday gifts for fifteen Kirkland families, which includes over 70 children. Rotary Club of Kirkland members spent a Saturday morning shopping at Fred Meyer for these families and then held their annual wrapping part on December 19. This timing allows club members to deliver gifts to the families on the Tuesday before Christmas. After the bows and ribbons were attached, the club members and their guests sat down for the annual Rotary Club of Kirkland Holiday Party dinner. Then the Rotarians drove the surprise holiday gift bundles to each of the homes to bring good cheer to their Kirkland neighbors.
The Rotary Club of Kirkland entered its new year with two sterling motivational programs. Using real world examples, Nick Salmon explained how to dismantle existing beliefs about goal setting and provided a simple, three-step method Rotarians can implement today to start achieving greater success. Then, Ty Reed, who spoke to the Club in early 2020 (just before COVID), returned to address a burning "post-COVID" topic of economic recovery through employee retention. His nonprofit, Recovery Career Services, is dedicated to helping people in recovery find and keep employment, and to providing career coaching and development to assist individuals in rebuilding their professional lives.
