The AUCTION co-chairs, PP Pete Van Well and PP Mike Kintner will bring us up to date on our preparations thus far, for the event of January 29, 2022.  These are not to be confused with other comedy teams such as Abbott and Costello or Martin and Lewis.



See previous editions of the Appleseed.
The Hybrid/ZOOM meeting was opened and led by president Alice Meyer, with Thomas Everly and Jill Leonard as ZOOM hosts at the Pybus Market Event Center.  Masking was advised due to recent CDC guidance. 


[All announcements are repeated in the Appleseed.]
FOOD SERVICEA message from Ford Barrett "Rotarians - We will use the Cafe Columbia catering service for our September meals. We will have a variety of wraps and a salad with water service. All of the utensils will be provided. The cost for the wraps will be $5 and salad $3; both for $7.50.  This is a pretty lean offering so that we can keep our costs under control. I have taken the liberty to order this service for 20. Please come and enjoy the lunch fellowship with your fellow members, and help make this work.    Ford"
 AUCTION UPDATESCo-chairs Pete Van Well & Mike Kintner continued their tag-team comedy routine with more fun facts and promises about leaping from airplanes and polar bear plunges, etc.   Since reaching the goal $10K in seed money pledges, the next goal of $12.5K may even get president Alice to jump with Mike.  Watch the video HERE.   Make a pledge HERE.

SEPTEMBER 09, 2021
ZOOM #73, Hybrid # 22;  WASART
WA State Animal Rescue Team
With Michaela Eaves & Julie Shipman
  1. ZOOM VIDEO HERE (only available 2-3 weeks)
  2. Permanent YOUTUBE video HERE.
  3. Previous APPLESEED (Sep. 09).
The speakers were sponsored and introduced by Carin Smith.  Michaela Eaves gave a brief overview of WASART followed by Julie Shipman's more detailed introduction to its activities.
The Washington State Animal Response Team (WASART) is an all-volunteer all-donation supported organization that helps companion animals and livestock out of immediate crisis and dangerous situations.  WASART when asked will rescue a horse from a well, assist a dog miles up a trail, set up an emergency animal shelter, and/or an emergency cooling shelter as needed recently.
What We Do - We’ve rescued dogs off of the side of a cliff. We’ve pulled horses out of mud and helped them stand after being cast in their stalls. We’ve helped dogs with burned and cut paws make it back down hiking trails. We’ve pulled cows out of ravines and rounded up pigs.  We also set up and run emergency animal shelters in disasters, like wildfires.  WASART responds to domestic animals in difficult situations. We can be called out by owners, emergency services, and emergency management.
Below find a few of Julie's excellent images which explain the program and give some great examples of what they do.
These are just a few of the
WASART images presented.

Dear Applesauce:    How can we upgrade our standards of dress and appearance at meetings?
    - Shabby Rotarian
Dear Shabby.  Dear Applesauce happens to be on vacation, but could not resist this question.  Overall, dress at meetings has not been too bad, but could be greatly improved by observing your current president who is setting a very high bar.  But how long can she sustain it?  We will be watching.

To see last week's wise answers by Dear Applesauce, visit the Appleseed HERE .
