A Message from the President
Hello from October!
We’ve got some fun things in store for you. On October 17 we are renting a bus and touring Seattle. This will involve some walking and of course a meal out in Seattle. My plan is to drive through the University district to the arboretum and then down to Lake Washington. We will come back through the district to Roosevelt Way taking it south towards downtown. We can visit the greenhouse at Volunteer Park driving past the historic Seattle cemetery. Then it will be time for lunch. I will select a location that offers a variety of choices and has ample parking for a van. On the way home we can stop at one of my favorite nurseries, Swanson’s. I hope you can join us.
We now have 2 happy hours, Ivar’s on October 12 at 4:00 PM and Arnie’s on October 22 at 4:00 PM.
Our speaker for our October luncheon is our former Mayor Joe Marine. Joe will help us better understand our choices during open season for health care. That will be October 21.
On November 1st our Mukilteo Kiwanis will be hosting their first annual Casino Night. It will be in the Point Elliot room at Rosehill. The event starts at 6:00 PM. It costs $50 presale and $60 at the door. We have included a flyer in this newsletter.
Our annual Sock Hop is November 16th. We’ve placed the ad on our front page of this newsletter. We have wonderful Robbie Dee doing his Elvis impersonation. We will have some dance instruction. We will be serving hamburgers, hot dogs, potato chips, various sodas, and root beer floats which are included in your price of admission. We will also have Diamond Knot beer for a nominal fee for those who want it. I hope you will join us. We are encouraging all ages to attend. This is a party we want to share with all citizens of Mukilteo.
We will have elections soon for all offices. I am running again for President. Linda Blakely is running again for Secretary. Please contact Sandy Loveland if you are interested in running. Mario Lotmore has been working on scheduling a debate for all our city council candidates. The only information I have so far is that it will be at Rosehill on October 23. Watch for more information. It’s a great way to be informed. We are going to start sending our board meeting notes to our members. If you are not a member but, would like to know more about what we do, let me know. We will put you on the email list. We have a few more surprises through the end of the year.
Stay tuned. Carolyn (Dode) Carlson – President
