Check Presentation

On Sunday, fifteen of our club's members went to Camp Lutherwood near Bellingham for the first day celebration of the 2017 Camp Phoenix, a week long summer camp for children recovering from burns. Led by past-president Mike Mallahan, our club presented a check for $45,00 to the Burned Children Recovery Foundation. Over $43,000 of the total were from raise-the-paddle contributors at our annual auction. Special thanks to South Everett-Mukilteo Rotary for its $1,000 contribution! Below are some of the photos from the event.  
 
 
 
 
A large group of motorcycle clubs, police and fire organizations, and other groups from all over Western Washington showed up for opening day of Camp Phoenix.  Even members of the Sea Gals and Blue Thunder entertained the children and entire gathering.

Peyton McDonald

 
 
 
 
 
Our speaker today was 14 year old Peyton McDonald. Peyton, who attends Snohomish High School talked about her first published book, "Before the End of Summer," available on Amazon.com. Peyton has loved writing since she was in the first grade and shared with us what it took for her to write and get her first book published. Peyton already has college aspirations; she intends to go to USC and continue studies in writing.  I think we will be hearing more great things about her in the future!
