Student of the Month Volunteers Needed
The Rotary Club of Kirkland Student of the Month program is a time-honored tradition aimed at recognizing and honoring outstanding students at two local high schools, Juanita and Lake Washington.  But the program requires volunteer time to function.  To launch the program this year, volunteers are needed!!  The vocational service committee needs a lead for the Juanita interviews, and both interview teams need a few more volunteers.  If you are willing to serve on a Student of the Month interview team, please email or call our vocational service chair, Gary Cohn, at your earliest opportunity.  You may also email or call the Lake Washington team lead, Mike Hunter.  Please help us keep this wonderful program alive and well!

December Program Sneak Peak
