Dear Sammamish Rotarians,

As I mentioned at the meeting on Thursday, this Saturday – June 9th – the Sammamish Rotary is hosting the Rotary First Harvest work party from 8:30am-11:00am at the Northwest Harvest warehouse in Kent (22220 68th Ave S).  We will have a few minutes to highlight our club to the 100+ Rotary volunteers in attendance.  It’s a great place to engage with other Rotarians around the district while packing food for the food banks.  Rebecca and I will be there and we would love more Sammamish Rotarians to join us!  You can sign up at: https://www.firstharvest.org/rfh-volunteer-hub/ OR email me and I’ll sign you up.

In other Rotary First Harvest news, RFH’s online auction opened over the weekend.  There are lots of great items available to bid on at https://www.biddingforgood.com/auction/auctionhome.action?auctionId=309491395.  All proceeds help Rotary First Harvest get healthy surplus produce into our local food wants and keeps this produce out of the waste stream.  
 
 

Don’t forget about the upcoming events our club is involved in.  You can sign up to volunteer for all the events at signupgenius.com.
