   WEEK IN REVIEW, January 17 - Apple STEM Network/GWATA  
President Elect Mike opened the meeting with announcements listed below.    He then recognized Kyle Vierck, WVC Athletic Director who spoke about the upcoming Athletics Auction one week after ours, and announced that he and his wife will attend our auction.  Listen to Kyle.  Contact him with questions:  509.682.6771 or by email.  
Lorien Clemens (now part of the Apple STEM leadership team) introduced our speakers, Dr. Sue Kane Director of the Apple STEM Network   and Becca Friemuth  of   GWATATogether they used an on-line  PowerPoint   to articulately describe  the shared vision and enthusiasm the Apple STEM Network provides to clear a pathway and secure resources for North Central Washington students to build STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) fluency, helping to open the door to new opportunities and career connections, and stimulating the economic development in our region. 
SCHOLARSHIPClick here for information on the  Washington State Opportunity Scholarship (WSOS) It was created in 2011 to address unfilled seats in the high-demand sectors that drive our economy like aerospace, engineering, technology and health care as well as rising tuition costs at Washington colleges and universities. This first-of-its-kind program supports Washington students from low- and middle-income households to attain bachelor’s degrees in high-demand fields including science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and health care through scholarships of up to $22,500 as well as professional development, skills-building workshops and genuine industry exposure to help increase the rate at which students enter our state's workforce.  Contact Sue.  Deadline is end of February.
Apple STEM Network was established in 2015, and is co-led by the Greater Wenatchee Area Technology Alliance (GWATA) and the North Central Education Service District (NCESD). They serve 26 school districts located in the four counties of North Central Washington: Chelan, Douglas, Grant and Okanagan.     Listen to Audio   
See last week's Appleseed for more.

President-Elect Mike Kintner opened the meeting of the "Dr. Herbert F Morse, George W. Coburn, and Cliff Godfrey" of Rotary Clubs.  In response to the blank stares, Mike explained that these were the charter officers of this club in 1921, and used this information to kickoff the preparations for our coming Centennial Celebration.  Between now and then we will honor and recognize all those club presidents who came before us.  Watch the Appleseed.  He recognized Kory Kalahar as committee chair of this event, and is certain Kory would welcome others to join in the effort.  President Pete will return next week.
Jay Smith at the Head Table took the opportunity to promote the auction (coming NEXT WEEK!) making the dubious claim that he cut his Hawaii vacation short just to be here.  His message:  Buy and/or Sell tickets!  We have 191 tickets sold, with room for about 130 more. 
Some donated items have not been delivered to the storage unit (Express Employment Professionals , 411-B N. Chelan).
He wants to see each of us there, and also appealed for the loan of a laptop computer for auction night.  [email Jay We have 40% more silent auction items donated than in 2017. 
Heidi Myers has tickets, or they can be ordered from our home page (which has been simplified).  She also asked for sponsors to please notify her who is using their two tickets, and their meal choice.  Auction tickets are $65 each.  We will need your mailing address, phone number and email.   Meal choices are: Beef Tenderloin Medallions, Bourbon-Marinated Salmon, or Vegetarian.
Linda Parlette announced that Mayor Kuntz sent her a donation of $250 with regrets that he is unable to attend.
Ford Barrett bragged ($25) about WSU Cougars being ranked above the Huskies in the AP ranking poll.  
Mike's good news - 2 quotes from Will Rogers.
Around the room... "The oldest and the youngest."
ROTARY NOWA message from Rob Tidd.  The next evening Rotary club meeting will be on January 22nd (5:30pm).  We will again hold the meeting at Ridge Cyclesport in Wenatchee. Our host is Evan Plews, proprietor and former professional mountain biker. Wine will be served courtesy of Viento Ridge Winery. We are staring this evening Rotary club, because there is no evening service club in our area. Hopefully this will be appealing to people who simply cannot make it to a breakfast or lunch meeting. It can also be used as a makeup meeting (yes, we make sure that the home club is notified of the member makeup). 
Mostly folks will be able to socialize and drink a little wine but there will be some topics for discussion:

a. Venue options for this evening Rotary club

b. Potential support for the existing Rotary clubs (if you have specific events you would like me to bring forth at the meeting please let me know). If you have a sign up sheet for volunteers for your event please let me know

c. Q&A (i.e. Focus of this club, does this club want to be its own club and not just a satellite club, etc.)


Also - Eastmont's Les Miserables….
The musical will be presented 3 more times at EHS beginning Thursday; tickets are on sale at the PAC at a cost of $15.  CLICK HERE.   Secretary Frank says "Please don't miss this awesome show!"  Chloe might agree.

End Polio Now/Club 60:  
Our ambitious goal has been set by President Pete at $10,000 ($192 per week!).
We continue our 10-year relationship with the Gates Foundation; since 2013, they have matched each dollar with $2 toward polio eradication.
Donations by club members on Jan. 17 = $13.42 bringing our total to $1357 or $4071 with the Gates match.  This equates to 6798 lives potentially saved. Collections at KPQ were $1133.  Read about World Polio Day, October 24
