May 16, 2022 Spokesman
The Rotary Club of Kirkland held a meeting on May 16, 2022 at the QFC in Park Place, Kirkland.

President Dave DeBois called the club meeting to order at 5 p.m.

The meeting was intended to be an event on Lake Washington, with the attendees enjoying a cruise on Duffy’s Electric Boats out of Marina Park.  However, a forecast of high winds caused the boat company to cancel this outing in favor of a later date with better weather.

Attending were Pete Anderson, Bob Auslander, Rich Bergdahl, Dave DeBois, Margie Glenn, Mike Hunter, Jim Meniketti, Jim Nevers, Kristin Olson, Rick Ostrander, Joanne Primavera, Steve Shinstrom, Patti Smith, and Brian Tucker.
