How do you get tickets?   Register  HERE for event tickets ( $75 each), and make donations.  Physical tickets should be available at the next meeting.
We have lots of great and exciting procurement items, BUT we need much more, as we are less than half what we need.  Those items can be dropped off at 3 locations:  
  • Mike's office at CVB on Maple Street
  • Pete's office at Van Well Nursery on Grant Road
  • Shannon Sim's office at Health Alliance NW, 411 N. Chelan Ave.
All this happened as PP Pete Van Well enjoyed his latest challenge - dining on a delicious bowl of pickled pig's feet (hair and all), due to a $1K donation by Gene Anderson.
Scroll down to view latest standings (another hilarious commentary by Co-chair Pete).
Get procurement forms from the offices of Mike or Pete, or download from our website -   English version HERE ;  Spanish version HERE .  
Donations can also be made by mailing checks to Wenatchee Rotary Foundation Auction, P.O. Box 1723, Wenatchee, WA 98807-1723.   Mark checks For the Auction.

Lock Out? What Lock Out?
The Wenatchee Rotary “For the Kids” Auction League’s bats were ablaze this week hitting dingers, zingers, stingers, ringers, wingers, singles, doubles, triples, grand slams, slammin’ grands, fireballs, ice breakers and bazooka blasts!
Take a gander at these out-this-world stats:
The Red Apple (South) Division has taken a commanding lead with all three teams (Jacksonville, Tacoma and St. Paul), bringing in close to half the tally, $19,270.00. No surprise, but Joltin’ Joe and his Jumbo Shrimp top the division (and league) with more than $12,000 across home plate. With 60% of those powerful prawns scoring goodies like an e-bike and Mission Ridge Ski passes, Jacksonville is the most active team in the club…and it shows!
This week’s shrimpy All Star is Jay “The Juggernaut” Smith who fired in a Scotch Tasting for 10.  Some clown is co-hosting, but the less said about him the better.
Elsewhere in the South, The Kala Czar showed his team, the Rainiers, how it is done by knocking a line drive all the way to Vermont.  That’s where some lucky auction attendee is headed to watch the fall colors.  That levitated the Mountain Men and Women to $4,100!
Also, shout out to Saint’s Michelle Price who is cooking…literally,  she is going to prepare two separate gourmet meals for eight guests (that’s 16 in total for all you Eastmont grads).   One is a farm-to-table experience co-hosted by Tom Ross and the other, her famous homemade Italian dinner.   Now, that’s one spicy meatball!   Rounding out the division is the Saints who upped their game to $2,671.
The Springwater (North) Division, saw the back-and-forth battle between Stinger Rachel Evey (Sugarland Skeeters) and Iron Man Ricardo Iniguez (Reno Aces) go to the Aces (not only because of impressive procurements, but also the lackluster math skills of the statistician).  The Aces aced the rest of the division bringing in $7,529.  The Skeeters fell back to $47k and change (again through no fault of their own)!   Meanwhile, De Robles, The Destroyer, and company (AKA the Charlottesville Knights) gained ground with impressive hits by Marc (Hittem High) Heminger and Eric (Nail Driver) Nelson this week. All in all, the North is right in the hunt with a collective tally of $15,637.
Look for the Orchard (Central) Division to start lighting things up, as Leonard Singhose of the Leihigh Valley Iron Pigs dropped close to $2,000 in slips.   Sluggin’ Singhose is Wenatchee Rotary’s No. 1 Hall of Famer when it comes to collecting goodies for the Auction.  His biggest score, a $500 Kraken gift basket!   Not to be outdone IP rookie Meliesa Tigard wants to feed someone’s kids $500 worth of tacos (that a lot of tacos!).   That was enough for the division lead with a total just north of $4,600.   
Literally breathing down the Porkers’ necks is Dante (Striker-Z) Gutierrez-Zamora and his Albuquerque Isotopes with $4,354 to secure the second spot in Central.   Striker can thank Muffy Rounds and Bill Monnette for some sweet swag.
Don’t count out Sante Fe’s chillin’ Chihuahuas.  Something tells this hack those crafty canines are holding back a huge onslaught of slips.
Just a reminder, our $45,000 tally is great, but right now the league should be at $70,000 if we want to hit that $150,000 target. Seriously, get your slips in yesterday!   We need to push and push hard before the big guy comes down the chimney.
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

Naturopathic Medicine, with Dr.  Terra Winston
    (ZOOM #83, Hybrid # 32)
Previous APPLESEED (Dec 02) includes more about the speaker and her field of work.

Dr. Terra Winston was introduced by Ken Robertson.   

She spoke about her field of practice, the topic of Naturopathic Medicine, which is a  branch of medicine in which a variety of natural medicines and treatments are used to heal illness. Dr. Winston recommended that each person consult with their own health care provider to discuss how they can stay healthy.
The Program Committee of the Rotary Club of Wenatchee has worked hard over many years to provide educational and informative programs for our members. The Committee is proud of our many diverse presentations, over many decades.  The program committee will use the Rotary four-way test as a guide when selecting future speakers and will share the four-way test with those speakers.
The Four-Way Test  
The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians often recite it at club meetings:
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned? 
If last week’s program offended members of our club, we sincerely apologize.
The Program Committee
See last week's Appleseed for more about Dr. Winston and her field of work.
