Rotary Log 09-29-20
The Rotary Club of Everett
The meeting #13 (5366) (Virtual #29) was called to order by President John Olson who then led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Thought of the Day was provided by Abby Cooley who acknowledged the stress of today’s world, the approach of pumpkins and Thanksgiving, and the practice of gratitude on a daily basis.
No Visiting Rotarians or Guests were in attendance today.
Greg Lineberry gave the 22nd Zoom Call Tip of the Day:  “How to Raise Your Hand During the Meeting.”  He said that because you can’t share zoom screen in a live format, you need to click on little hand at the bottom of the screen to be recognized and then click again to un-raise hand.  We all tried it and it worked!
Classification Talk--Shannon Marsh spoke of her ancestors (lawyers) in Everett, she and her husband raised their two children in Seattle, moved here in 2000, and she became a patient advocate for people with cancer.  Now the kids are in college, widowed, works with Dean Minor, as estate attorney.  President John welcomed her to the club.
Happy Hour—President John announced the theme of the next Happy Hour as  “Fall drink of choice” which will take place on October 1st at 5:30pm.
Board meeting update also by President John, was a discussion of how to integrate social justice in our activities. Still need an Avenue of Service Chair—volunteer?
Kelli Thode told us about the recent Fireside at Lake Goodwin when all enjoyed a nice meeting.
Wick Temple presented the raffle while Theresa drew names. 
They were as follows:
#1 Package  Fred Safstrom  outdoor thermometer, wine, Peppermint patties
#2  Michael Holcomb—really small waffle maker, wine, coffee beans
#3 Rich Toyer  --luggage scale, wine and  some confusion with grand prize
Amy Norman, PP, said that all her children had birthdays 16, 18 & 21 dollars
Tom Lane handed over 51 birthday bucks
Judi Edwards offered up $20 for closing on Marysville house so starting on house in South Carolina
Tom Koenig was really happy that mice chewed out wiring in $8,000 off road vehicle and surprised us with the fact that they now use soy to cover wiring, thus attracting the rodents
Paul Stoot needs to pay old bill and gave $57 for his birthday,
PROGRAM: Studio Glass
Sean Kelly introduced John Kiley, who is working on a glass exhibition in Seattle today and was asked to share information about Studio Glass. 
Kiley told us about starting out at 17 years old, and the many mentors he’s had over his career in blowing and sculpting glass including Dante Mariconi, Dale Chihuly, Lino Tagliapietra and Ikuta Niyoko.

He talked about his own theme of separateness and togetherness; showed us photographs of comparisons of the influences of his mentors and influencers; and talked of the feelings of viewers while observing the precariousness of his work.
Kiley told us that there were more glass blowing studios in Western Washington than anywhere in the world and that the Schack was one of the top two world class studios.  He designed the layout of the hot shop at the Schack and described the steps involved in blowing and cutting glass.
He provided visuals of Fractographs, the breaking and reconstructing of optic crystal blocks.  He is currently exhibiting his work at the William Traver Gallery in Seattle.

President John thanked John Kiley with our traditional gift of the donation to the Everett Boys and Girls Club and adjourned the meeting with questions to follow.
