INTERACT NEWS.   This Veteran's Day (11/11) Interact Club members and Rotarians worked together with Susan Ballinger to plant sagebrush plants near the Broadview neighborhood. We were joined by Jeanne Dodds from the Endangered Species Coalition who is going to be doing a piece on the work being done to help endangered species in the area. It great for Interact club members to work together with Rotarians on this meaningful work!  [Submitted by VP Sophia Kinninger]

It was an off week for many as we celebrated our Veterans (both Rotarian and non-Rotarian), but the Wenatchee Rotary “For the Kids” Auction teams kept chipping away at our goal to bring in $100,000.00 in goodies for the big event January 29 at the Wenatchee Convention Center.
Collectively, we upped the ante by $2,000 in merch from last week to $38,000. We got some goodies on board like an E-Bike, lots of beautiful and unique artwork, several wonderful experiences, a trip to Palm Desert, a WSU Cougar rug, and dessert of the month from our friends at Wenatchee Sunrise Rotary!
Captain Joltin’ Joe St. Jean and his powerhouse prawns, the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp from the Red Apple (South) Division remain atop of the leaderboard with more than $10,000 in donations.   
Iron Man Iniguez’s Reno Aces in second place are gaining at just under $6,500 in swag, taking the crown this week in the Springwater (North) Division.   That moves Sugarland’s Skeeters into third overall (second in the Division) with $5,500 in auction items. They are led by the “Stinger” herself, Rachel Evey.
Albuquerque’s Isotopes remain atop the Orchard (Central) Division and fourth on the leader board thanks to the command of Striker-Z Zamora.  The Kala Czar’s Rainiers (Red Apple) are in fifth;   Charlotteville’s Knights (Springwater), led by DeRobles  The Destroyer, rank sixth; seventh place is owned by Razzle Dazzle Rasmussen and his Leighigh Valley Iron Pigs (Orchard); eighth goes to Ole Peters and the St. Paul Saints (Red Apple); with Mad Dog Mendoza and his Santa Fe Chihuahuas (Orchard) ready to put the bite on their competition from the ninth seed (never bet against an underdog, and Chihuahuas naturally fit under most other dogs, so watch out for Jessi and crew).
Until next week, keep those bats swinging and get out there and procure items to get us over the plate!  
                Don’t forget to get items to Pete, Mike or your team captain. These folks also have auction procurement slips or you can download the slips in both English and Spanish at

Dear Applesauce:   Explain women. I dare ya!   
                --  Mansplain This
Dear Mansplain,  While chivalry may be on life support, apparently chauvinism is alive and kicking! This question must have been posed by a Rotarian hampered by one of those pesky Y chromosomes (or as it is known in Dear Applesauce’s family, “the idiot gene”). Suffice it to say, today’s woman is sugar and spice and everything nice AS WELL AS snips and snails and puppy dog tails.
In other words, she’s the full package. Now, why don’t you go kill a Brontosaurus and return back to the cave from which you crawled!
Dear Applesauce:    How does Frank find the time to come up with creative answers each week for this new Appleseed feature?

Take the "Dear Applesauce" dare to submit a question we cannot answer!!  Thanks to those have accepted the challenge.
