President Scott called the March 20, 2017 Rotary Club of Kirkland meeting to order at 6:30pm.  Dave DeBois led us in the Pledge.  Gary Bruner did an inspirational moment commemorating the loss of his Mother-in-Law and how we need to help our disabled veterans.
Scott East of Bellevue Noon,  Russ & Trish Stromberg and our past student of the month Isabella Forcino.
  1. Patti Sims mentioned Miracle League is coming but hasn’t had the same support as last year and some of the normal go to folks may have other commitments this year.  She is looking for someone to help chair this important set of events with her.  Please reach out to Patti if you can offer a hand.
  2. The downtown club is having a social and game night at the Brickhouse Pub in Juanita.  Starts at 5pm Wednesday the 22nd (TONIGHT) and there is no cost to attend.  However food and drinks would be on each individual.
  3. Amy said hockey night was a great success.  Having attended personally I will agree.  Thanks Amy for coordinating.
  4. Rich is doing the front desk and still looking for a few good folks to help with the fun and entertaining duty.

Tonight was all about prepping for the Duck Dash and getting all member assigned to a committee.  We are looking for a volunteer to spearhead coordinating the 4th of July Parade as long time coordinator Steve is going to be busy with Family Commitments.  Please let Rick know if you are willing to be coordinator.  Steve will help get all supplies and the ducks.
Race day committee is on track but still needs many willing to help with final take down at the end.  Jason & Steve and others are on task.
PR is Ann Hamilton, Bob Webb and Ben Premack to get the good word out on our race.
Race day will be either Saturday the 12th or Sunday the 13th depending on final decision made by the Summerfest organizing team and how many days the festival will run.
Meeting adjourned around 7:30.  Scribe for an evening Steve
