Hello Rotarians!

West Seattle Rotary Picnic

Hope you are all looking forward to our picnic tomorrow! We have TWO YEARS worth of fun to catch up on after our picnic last year was cancelled due to smoke! Remember - no noon meeting tomorrow! Hot dogs, hamburgers and perhaps a few other odds and ends will be provided by the club.

We will be at Lincoln Park, Shelter #3, 5pm. If your last name begins with A-M, please bring with you a salad or a side dish to share. If you're last name begins with N-Z, please bring chips or a dessert to share. Also, if you have a last name at all (that's pretty much everyone) bring your own beverages, sunscreen and any assorted personal items that you may require. You don't have to share those but you can if you want. If you don't have a last name or aren't sure what it is... well... that's an entirely different picnic you are looking for...

If you aren't sure about anything else, please ask Martha. She knows everything. She's district level now so make the most of it!

Here are a couple of other things you might be interested in as well...

Peacebuilders Potluck

Our club helped support the Rotary Peacebuilders in their initiative to end sex trafficking. You are invited to attend a poluck lunch in Magnolia with info and updates on current partnerships with the healthcare system to reach trafficking victims and other strategies.
