THIS WEEK - AUGUST 19, 2021
      Auction season kickoff
      With Mike Kintner & Pete Van Well
  (ZOOM #70, Hybrid # 19) 
 
It's the top of the first inning and Casey..er..Pete..is already at bat.  The World Series is in our sights- the World Series better known as the 2022 Wenatchee Rotary "For The Kids" Auction.  League Co-Presidents Pete Van Well and Mike Kintner will give you their prognostications for the upcoming Auction season.  Which team will be victorious- the Isotopes?  The Mudhens?  The Rainiers?  
On Wednesday night at 5:30 p.m., join Pete and Mike for the Auction Kickoff party.  It will be held outdoors at the Hilton Garden Inn.  Then on Thursday during our Rotary meeting, the teams will be announced and the competition begins!  AND, best of all, we will finally learn what Pete's gonna do!
Wear your swag from your favorite baseball team to both events!  We're gonna hit a homerun "For The Kids" on January 29, 2022!
 
 
---  DEAR APPLESAUCE  ---
 
Dear Applesauce:  what is your take on our club having three female presidents in succession?
      -  Mission Street Macho Man
 
Dear Macho Man,  Dear Applesauce believes that the streak of female presidents to start the club's second 100 years will continue, and may very well break the record of 74 consecutive male presidents during its first 100 years...without excluding men!
 

Dear Applesauce:  Who is your favorite Rotarian?  Just wondering.
   -  Nosey
 
Dear Nosey:  Dear Applesauce has a question for you: WHAT THE HECK KIND OF QUESTION IS THAT?  Let's see: Is it the TRUTH?  Is it FAIR to all concerned?  Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?  Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?  Well, in light of The Four Way Test - Hands down Dear Applesauces' favorite Wenatchee Rotarian is (drum roll please): our cherished Carmen Bossenbrock!
 

To see last week's wise answers by Dear Applesauce, visit the Appleseed HERE and scroll to the bottom of the page, where this frivolity will likely appear in future editions.

WEEK IN REVIEW - AUGUST 12, 2021
  ZOOM #69, Hybrid # 18  
Rotary Peace Fellowship 
  With PDG Chris Offer
 
  1. ZOOM videos are only available 2-3 weeks
  2. See YouTube video HERE.
  3. Previous APPLESEED (Aug 12).
Chris Offer, joining us from Canada, was sponsored and introduced by President-Elect Nominee and Peace-Building  Committee Chair Michelle Shermer.
 
Chris is Vice Chair of the Rotary Peace Centers committee. He is a Rotary Positive Peace Activator and IEP (Institute for Economics and Peace) Ambassador.   He previously served a 3-year term as chair of the Rotary Peace Major Gifts Initiative Committee, the goal of which is to raise US$50 million for the Rotary Peace Centers and Rotary‚Äôs peace area of focus.   
Chris has served on a variety of Rotary committees involved in training, fundraising and membership development. He is a member of the Rotary Club of Ladner in Metro Vancouver, and served as Governor of District 5040.   READ MORE.
 

Most of his images are shown below.  He presented some of the history of Rotary's peace initiatives which began 100 years ago in Scotland, including involvement with the formation of UNESCO in 1942.  He described the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), headquartered in Sydney, Australia beginning 14 years ago, a think tank for the study of peace issues in the world explained how its 8 pillars of peace are linked to Rotary's 7 Areas of Focus.  He showed a world map highlighting how certain nations rank in peace conditions, resulting in a Global Peace Index.  He described how his district joined with another to improve peace conditions in Colombia, using Rotoractors (a youth branch of Rotary).
 
Chris primarily wanted to advise the club about things we can do to further world peace.
  1.  Attend the online training of the Positive Peace Academy which requires a commitment of about 4 hours.
  2.  Nominate a Rotary Peace Fellow .  Selected candidates choose to pursue a master's degree or a certificate at a Rotary Peace Center.  There are now about 1400 alumni, 93% employed in the field.  Competition is stiff (currently 1200 applicants seek one of 100 positions).
  3.  Support Rotary's peace initiatives by donating to The Rotary Foundation (TRF).
We will learn more about this topic as our Peace Committee develops specific plans.

HAITI HANWASH UPDATE - AUG. 14, 2021
Carin Smith, Chair
 
Haiti suffered an earthquake today (Sat. 8/14) that has caused widespread damage in the southern part of the country. The HANWASH projects have not been adversely affected as far as we know.  Soon after, Rotary's District 7020 created a team (including HANWASH) to oversee outreach and fundraising through a non-profit entity called the Disaster Network Assistance Rotary Action Group (DNA-RAG). Please do NOT donate to HANWASH for earthquake relief - instead you can donate to Haiti relief through the DNA-RAG. This is a similar mechanism as that successfully employed following the 2010 earthquake. Click HERE to View.
 
[Added by editor - another very effective way to help is through ShelterBoxUSA ]

 
MOST RECENT HANWASH UPDATE

HAITI HANWASH UPDATE (July 10, 2021)

Our Haiti HANWASH project continues to progress in spite of the shocking news about the assassination of the Haitian President. We are in continual contact with the Rotarians and other partners in Haiti. Their note is shown here.
