The Rotary Club of Everett
At 12:00 Noon, President John Olson rang the Rotary bell, calling to order meeting #16 of his presidency; #5369 of the Rotary Club of Everett, and virtual meeting #32.
He then led the club in the Pledge of Allegiance. Cat Wilson brought us the Thought of The Day with a quote about gratefulness. Deborah Wright then sang a song about the Rotary 4 Way Test.
There were no visiting Rotarians today. Fred Safstrom introduced his guest, Representative Emily Wick.
Sheldon Johnson shared some insight with the club about running a hotel in the current environment. He stated that it has been very difficult. Occupancy is down and there is a lot of empty meeting space as well. Employees temperatures are checked, masks are required of both staff and guests. No one is allowed to hang out in the lobby. Many of the doors are locked. The restaurant is only open in the evening and limited to 25 people.
Tammy Dunn announced that Economic Alliance Snohomish County and other groups are having virtual fundraisers. Many Rotarians are participating in these events. It is a good way to receive a makeup.
Jason Bighaus mentioned a community service award for Habitat for Humanity on Friday, October 16th at 12:00pm. It will be an online presentation and fundraiser. Habitat is in need of funds.
VP Kari Petrasek announced the next Rotary happy hour will be Thursday, October 15th at 5:30pm. Participation counts as a makeup.
President John announced the Rotaract Club is having a fundraiser, Do Good with Burritos, on Wednesday, October 21st 5-9pm at Chipotle in North Marysville.
Barb George led off Happy Dollar$ with $100 to celebrate the US Navy’s 245th birthday.
Will McMahan was appreciative of the many Rotarians who have volunteered as career speakers for AVID students.
Neil Angst was $100 happy, as this is his busy time of the year.
PROGRAM – General Assembly
President John started today’s program, stating that the general assembly informs members about club activities. Read about the Strategic Plan 2020 Draft.
The Club Vision Statement:

The Club Mission or Purpose:

In the end, there were 3 left standing:
1st Place - Parker Crompton
2nd Place – Zeb Cobbs

In closing, President John sated that the club is in need of a new club historian, after Larry O’Donnell has served in this role for 47 years.
