The President’s Cup Golf Tournament, held June 30 at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge, was another enormous success. On behalf of Snoqualmie Valley Rotary, I want to express our appreciation to sponsors and participants who propelled us to raise $54,000 for Rotary First Harvest, the Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank and other local organizations. Our primary sponsor, Snoqualmie Casino, was generous in their support and played a critical role in making the day’s festivities a huge hit.
Community Events, August 2014
Another Fourth of July has passed, and what a fourth it was! The day was perfect. We started with the 5K fun run, which had more than 600 registered runners and walkers, and ended with a speculator fireworks display. But what a parade! We had the Seattle Chinese Community Girls Drill Team back, and the Ixtapa horses. I think they doubled in size this year, and were outstanding.
Fall City Day has come and gone, but the thank-you’s roll on. Weather was perfect for 800 runners who participated in the Fall City Days Fun Run. Our amazing crew of volunteers led by Perry and Sharon Wilkins, Kirk and Sophie Harris, and Kirk Dunckel organized and ran a great event. Even more fun comes in September when we give away all of our proceeds, minus costs, back to our community organizations. The Raging River Riders 50th anniversary was evident in the parade and fair theme. Thank you to Libby, Laurie E., Lisa, Nikki, Brandon, Bill A. and Dan and Terri D., as they did a great job on everyone’s favorite part of the day.
The sale of the Valley Hospital to Overlake Hospital has the potential to lower our property taxes while maintaining quality health care in the Valley, a rare opportunity these days to be sure.
In January, I was diagnosed with small-cell carcinoma, and have been unable to work since then.
