Remember the Four-Way Test
Happy Bucks Contribution Reminder
Just a quick reminder for Rotarians who’ve announced Happy Bucks contributions: The simplest payment method is by credit card through the Donations page, whether before or just after the meeting.  Alternatively, the Happy Bucks contribution may be paid by credit card through the Dues & Billing System after a statement is sent, which should occur the Friday after the meeting during which the Happy Bucks were announced (if they have not already been paid).  Of course, checks sent to the club will work as well!  For the October 12 meeting, one of the five commitments has already been paid.  Thank you!
November Speakers All About Politics
During November, Rotarians will be treated to the insights four seasoned professionals deeply involved in politics, elections, and government history on several levels.  The Politics & Elections Series includes: on November 2, election eve, Karen Waters, president of Strategies 360, a major political consulting firm in the region; on November 9, Jerry Cornfield, long-time political reporter for The Daily Herald (the parent paper to our Kirkland Reporter); on November 16, Ben Anderstone, voter behavior researcher and political analyst regularly featured on Crosscut, and on November 23, Dr. Glennys Young, a Russia and Soviet Union historian and chair of the University of Washington's History Department and professor in the Jackson School of International Studies.  For topic details and speaker background use the club website's Speakers tab.
January Program Concept
The Rotary Program & Speakers Committee is working on a revised concept for the January meeting series. City of Kirkland staff are working with the club to develop the three-part series around operations of the police, fire, and public works and planning departments. Likely areas of program emphasis include community policing, school resource officers, impact of the fire and EMS ballot measure outcome, major transportation and business development activities, and how the city council's Resolution 5434, Affirming that Black Lives Matter and Approving the Framework for Kirkland to Become a Safe, Inclusive and Welcoming Community Through Actions to Improve the Safety and Respect of Black People in Kirkland and End Structural Racism by Partnering with Those Most Affected, will thread through various departments' operations. If you have program suggestions for future meetings, please email James Nevers.
