Our Club came out of covid with flying colors. We got the bus moving again and had the right people on it. We even had some in the right seats to begin, and now most are filled for a successful 2022/2023. On Earth Day, we spent a few hours cleaning and painting over graffiti on Pacific Avenue in Parkland. Seven club members and District 25 Washington State Senator Chris Gildon completed the project to our satisfaction. We got some honks and “way to go’s,” too.
After a two-year hiatus, we brought back our “Surrender The Boot Bash” auction. Well, we brought back the auction but not to a pirate theme. We held it at the LeMay Family Collection venue at Marymount. Since it is an automobile museum, it was fitting to make our theme “Route 66.” It was a huge success with fun, fellowship, shopping, and making money for our community support. A big “Yay” goes out to Kirsten Stewart as she took the reigns and led us to victory. Of course, many other volunteers made it all happen smoothly and efficiently. We will have it next year at the same place, with a date yet to be determined.
July 30 is our 11th Annual golf tournament to benefit The American Lake Veterans Golf Course in Lakewood and our club projects. The tournament is held at the course, and if you have interest, please go to www.psrotaryclub.org The course has received no federal funding for 30 years, so volunteers and modest greens fees run it. You may not know that a dozen years ago, Jack Nicklaus came out and then designed a new nine holes free of charge.
This year the original front nine had new greens and an irrigation system. Join us for this great event.
