The Rotary Club of Everett
Meeting of July 14, 2020 #02 (5355) Virtual Meeting #18 was called to order by President John Olson who also led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.  President John asked for volunteers to lead the pledge in future meetings.
The Thought of the Day was given by Corey Margolis who read a poem about managing your image and advice from a football coach whose name I missed.  It was, “Play for the name on the front of the jersey and people will remember the name on the back.”
President John announced that people could still sign up for the raffle during the meeting.
Guests included: Breck and Candace Marsh, brother and mother is of today’s inductee Shannon Marsh, guests of Deane Minor;  Amanda Overly, new principal at Everett High, guest of Kelli Shepherd; Mary Grace Anthony, guest of guest  speaker, Jim Dean; and Rich Toyer’s wife Karen.
Induction of Shannon Marsh was introduced by Deane Minor, Classification – Legal Services, took place with the attendance of her family and includes 3 generations of attorneys and two Rotary presidents. Shannon, the mother of two, was inducted by President John who invited her to serve on committees and promised support from the club. 
Kari Petrasek told us about the Happy Hour of July 2nd where it was discussed that the Happy Hour be held outside on July 23, 2020.  Kari announced that the next two dates were July 23 and Aug 13 so you can put them on your calendar.

Marc Baker won Girl Scout cookies, 1954 baseball hat, wine, and coffee
the Grand Prize went to MaryBeth Dingledy who won wine, a jar of Judi’s pickles, an autographed book, and Girl Scout cookies.
Nick Hansen introduced the Program: “Cars to Housing” presented by Jim Dean.
Jim is the Executive Director of Interfaith Family Shelter which focuses on family homelessness, collaborates with Housing Hope.  He cited the 146th Psalm which says the Lord keeps faith, many faiths included, with a mission to find people home. 
He stated that there is a severe shortage of housing in our area so there is a waiting list where families live in their cars in designated parking lots provided by churches and recognized by the police so they can be safe. Everett Rotary’s funding help provide a bathroom with a sink. 
Faith partnerships at Cascade View, Miracle House (Marysville) provide space for 5-6 families each, more are needed. Their Board Retreat questioned why aren’t we focusing on Prevention?  It costs $5000 a month for 90-day stay in housing; a move to independent housing with a counselor and plan costs $1,400 a week.  VOA can help for $200 to $1,500 to keep someone from becoming homeless. 
He expressed the logic and the need to find a system to prevent people from becoming homeless. 
They believe that the cause is “Failed Relationships” for those in crisis.  They want to help them build a relationship, a way to connect.   He thanked Rotary for help in numerous ways and hopes that after COVID, volunteers and in-kind gifts can be provided.  He gave a special thanks to Ed Rubatino.  Called Everett Faith in Action.
Thank you to Jim Dean from President John with a donation to Everett Boys and Girls Club in his name. President John thanked everyone for their contributions and guest for attending.
