Helping out one of our own

We have happy happy thoughts about getting the weeds pulled, the blackberries beaten back, and the flowers trimmed and watered. RCWW members were happy to have the opportunity to give back to one of our members through service and happy to have fellowship in such a beautiful setting. We were delighted to have guests Don & Carol Smith join us for this special evening. Rotary is not just about helping build communities both locally and across the globe, it’s also about lending a helping hand to our members when there is a sincere need.

Community Service: Greenbank Farm

Fence posts are going up at Greenbank Farm in preparation of the privacy screen being built by Whidbey Westside. Gordy Edberg, Ed Halloran, Jerry Morrison, and Gwen Jones gave of their time and talents on Saturday morning to get all 6 posts in the ground. The rest of the project will be completed later this month.

Meals on Wheels 5k

We had a great group of Rotarians come out and volunteer their time to organize the Meals on Wheels 5 k held at Greenbank Farm. The weather was a little dreary, but everyone who came out was in great spirits as they supported this great organization.

Where will RC Whidbey Westside be in 2019?

That was the question proposed to our entire club this past Monday as we took part in a club Visioning workshop. Facilitators Carl Garrison, Ajay Caleb, Pat Bond, and Linda Murray walked our club though a three part exercise to help us discover how working together, we can become a club worthy of the “Distinguished Club Medallion” in 2019. Some club members had a lot of ideas, others took it all in, but we all had a great night of visioning a better club–with the help of our facilitators, we created a roadmap to get us there.
