President Nancy's Holiday Poem

Twas the 19th of December at the Yacht Club of Q.C.,

Where our Seattle Rotarians gathered for a fun time to be.

To describe those of us from Seattle 4, what would you say?

Well tonight, we are simply “come as you are, come as you may.”

The Rogues were tuned up well and Linda and Vicky so operatic;

Thankfully no one asked us to join in, or we’d be pathetic.

John and Pete tend the bar, and keep us mostly in line,

While others mingle and chat and show off outfits so fine.

Our Club Director, Mary, loves us all young and old;

And she’s motivated in Seattle to get the story of Rotary told.

Thanks for all that each of you do to make our Club run;

So just enjoy yourself immensely until our evening is done!

Get Involved!

As the year draws to a close, we want to thank all of our Rotarian 2023 Donors to our current campaign.  We love and appreciate you all.
We also want express our gratitude for our January and February 2024 Donors.  Your gifts are just as important.  So thank you in advance!
Wishing you all a very happy holiday season!
