It was a lovely summer evening for several Skagit Rotarians to flip burgers and provide salads for the Boys & Girls Club in Mount Vernon.  As a part of a county-wide effort by all Skagit Rotary Clubs to show support to the Boys & Girls Club, Skagit Rotary, along with the Mount Vernon Noon Club, provided funding for burgers and hot dogs and prepared salads.  Best of all, Skagit Rotarians showed kids and their parents that we care about youth in our community!

The Skagit Rotary website is an important communication portal both within and without the club.  Please take the time to login and make sure all of your contact information is up to date.  Simply visit www.skagitrotary.com and click "login" in the upper right-hand corner.  Your login is Firstname.Lastname and your password... well, if you have forgotten it, follow the link for "forgot my password" and we'll email it to you.  Unless you don't have a valid email in the system.  Then, you can talk to Amelia or Jerry at a Wednesday meeting and we'll figure it out.

If you do not have a real photo of yourself uploaded to your profile, please do so.  This is an immense help to our new members, who like to be able to associate names and faces in their new club.  Remember, we only have to learn one new name, but they have to learn 65+.  Let's give them a break.

Lastly, if you have participated in an event related to Rotary or have good information for our Rotarians, please let Amelia know so that we can get it on the website, on FaceBook, and in the monthly bulletin (yes, there will be a monthly bulletin!), especially if you have photos.  Bob Taylor may say, "Participation is good," but Amelia Cook says, "Communication is better.  Or at least just as good."  We need to let everyone know how AMAZING our club is!

Why be a Skagit Rotarian? 

It's not for the money,

It's not for the fame,

It's not for any person gain,

It's just for the love of fellow man,

It's just to lend a helping hand,

It's just to give a little of self,

It's to do something you can't buy with wealth,

It's not medals worn with pride,

It's for the feeling deep inside,

It's the reward down in your heart,

It's the feeling you've been part of helping others far and near,

That makes you a Skagit Rotarian!
