May 28  -  WASHINGTON DECA      
With Isabel Hyde and Cooper Vick
The speakers were introduced by Loren Stach, standing in for Alice Meyer.  Washington DECA is one of over 50 DECA Associations worldwide. The WA DECA association’s mission is to provide business and leadership opportunities to high school students to succeed in school, careers, and life. It is made up of over 160 school chapters and over 12,000 student members statewide. WA DECA is dedicated to educating students on six main career clusters that prepare the emerging leaders and entrepreneurs to be college and career ready. This is done by placing students in real world business situations where they compete for area, state, and international titles.
Washington state is geographically split into 11 Areas, and Wenatchee falls into Area 10. Isabel Hyde is the 2019-2020 Area 10 President and State VP of Marketing. She is a senior at Wenatchee High School and will attend WWU in the fall where her intended major of Business Administration- Marketing was heavily influenced by her time with DECA.  Cooper Vick is president-elect.
 With nearly a 75-year history, DECA has impacted the lives of more than ten million students, educators, school administrators and business professionals since it was founded in 1946.

The camera was finally switched off on August 22, 2001. The final image captured by the camera can still be viewed at its homepage.(Wikipedia - scroll down to "history")
Business of the week.  Appleseed may soon begin promoting a "business of the week".  Those interested may send the secretary some details to display, like a logo, motto, contact info, etc.  There will be a small annual fee.

North Central Accountable Community of Health – Organization’s response to Support COVID-19 Community Efforts

with Linda Evans Parlette and John Schapman, to learn more:
North Central Accountable Community of Health (NCACH) is one of the nine Accountable Communities of Health coordinating Medicaid Transformation Projects across Washington State. NCACH brings together community members, cross-sector partners, and other experts. Working together, these partners explore new approaches to improve health and wellness through healthcare transformation projects.
Linda is currently the Executive Director of the North Central Accountable Community of Health (NCACH).  Prior to accepting this position she was a member of the Washington State Senate and served the state's 12th Legislative District for 20 years. In 1968 Senator Parlette earned her bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy from Washington State University (Go Cougs!)
On March 16, 2020 NCACH made the decision to pause its current projects and join the Incident Command systems of each of our local health jurisdictions (LHJ) to assist with COVID-19 pandemic response. We have been working with each LHJ (Chelan-Douglas, Grant, and Okanogan Counties) assisting with their individual community mitigation response needs and working with local partners to develop tools for communities practicing social isolation, providing outreach, and crafting messaging to encourage our communities to “Stay Home, Stay Safe, Stay Healthy.”

With Brian Brett & Britt Dudek
Chief Brian Brett comes to Chelan County Fire District 1 with 26 years of fire service experience.  He began his fire service career here, at CCFD1, and is excited to return after having worked his way through the ranks in the valley.  Brian’s most recent position was with our neighboring fire department, Douglas County Fire District 2, where he was the Assistant Chief functioning as the Fire Marshal.  This experience followed by a year long mentorship with Fire Chief Mike Burnett has positioned Brian to continue the success of CCFD1.

Hello members,
As a service club, we need to spotlight our service to the community and the world.  Can you please share with me what you are doing during this time to make a difference.  I know the majority of us are not just sitting at home watching Netflix 24/7.    Many of us are still working,  making masks, reaching out to people or supporting small business, etc.    Please send me an email at with the details of how you and your family are engaged to make a difference in our pandemic world.  I would love concrete facts and photos speak volumes.  I will be sharing on our social media channels.  If you want to share what you are doing, but don’t want to be identified, just let me know!    Thank you for helping me show the world why today is a great day to be a Rotarian!
