Davidson & Co., will review the GDP outlook from an investor’s perspective and discuss his views on what parts of the economy will drive 2021 GDP growth, and outline a few risks that lie ahead.

Rotary is Out for Blood!

District-wide, 22 donors accepted Seattle 4’s #OutForBlood Challenge over the Holiday Season! Of the 22 donors, 17 were from Seattle #4. This meant that up to 66 people were given the gift of life as a result of our efforts.
The #OutforBlood Challenge ends the first quarter of our year-long campaign with a push at the Seattle Aquarium on February 9 and 10, and then on February 16 and 17.  Sign up to donate at the Aquarium pop-up and lend your arm to the cause.
Can’t make the Aquarium?  Would Amazon, UW Tower, or the Museum of Flight be more convenient?  You can use Donor Portal to schedule your donation at these or many other sites convenient to you as well!
Seattle 4 is in a competition with district clubs to see which club(s) can save the most lives. Help Seattle 4 save lives.  Paul Harris Fellowship points will be awarded to Seattle #4 blood-drive participants.
If you have donated but not told Sten Crissey yet, or if you have questions about donating, email Sten at
