At the April 19th FUN Club meeting Bev Harrington, Rotary District 5050 District Governor, presented Peter Martin with the Service Above Self award. It is given by Rotary International to no more than 150 Rotarians worldwide each year, and is considered the highest honor RI can give to an individual Rotarian. 
 
Thanks to Peter's idea to promote the concept of forming an alliance of small Rotary clubs in the area to work together on international projects, the International Project Alliance (IPA) was formed.  Congratulations Peter and thank you for your dedication and commitment to RI and IPA!
 
April 22, 2022 was Earth Day and FUN Club members were doing their part supporting the environment by weeding and cleaning up on the Tommy Thompson Trail in Anacortes.
 
 
 
We were not expecting a flamingo on the cleanup trail!  Madelyn Case wins the prize!
 

Sadly we are witnessing a tragic and devastating invasion/destruction of another country, resulting in massive displacement, injury and death to an innocent civilian population. The injustice is unspeakable. Humanitarian action through service to others is a hallmark of Rotarians.

So, our club has elected to donate the last $3,000 of the International Service Committee budget to the English-speaking Rotary Club of Warszawa Wilanów in Warsaw, Poland so they can purchase relief supplies and truck them to Ukraine. They are working in concert with the Rotary Club Lwiw International in Ukraine who are distributing most of the goods and supplies to local hospitals for treating civilians and soldiers. A portion of the goods purchased with our funding are going to serve the needs of the refugees who have crossed into Poland.

In addition, with the help of the Rotary-sponsored Medical Supply Network International, we have acquired a donation of about 14,000 new and warm white fleece blankets which we are shipping in a container to Poland for transport to the Ukrainian refugees in and out of Ukraine. MSNI is loading the blankets on pallets into the shipping container and arranging the shipping. Our club is using donations to fund the cost of the shipping to Poland and the trucking for distribution to the refugees.

We hope these small gestures will bring some relief to many displaced and injured people.

If you would like to donate to our Ukraine Relief Fund, please click Donate here  and remember to indicate that your donation is for the Ukraine Relief Fund.

Rotary Club members will visit Rotary Clubs when they travel.  Here's an update from one of our members who recelty visited with the Lahaina Rotary Club.
 
Aloha from sunny Maui!
 
On March 31st I brought our Anacortes Rotary Aloha spirit while attending the Lahaina Rotary Club meeting.  It was a beautiful setting on the shores of West Maui looking out at the channel between Maui, Lanai & Moloka’i.
 
The Lahaina club President, Joe Park, and I exchanged club flags.  Their club flag is beautiful, including a whale breaching.  We did the pledge of allegiance, a happy / sad, and shared food.  At the Lahaina club they bring their individual lunches.  The remainder of the meeting focused on preparation for their auction fund raiser.
 
On a more personal note, I scored my second Eagle with a 164 yard 4 iron shot on the 364 yard par 4 18th hole on the Wailea Gold course.
 
I look forward to seeing you all at the May 17th meeting.
 
Aloha,
Ron Neal from Maui
FUN Club members got together on April 2, 2022 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Fidalgo Island Rotary Club.  We kicked it off with a champagne toast.
 
And there were so many delicious snacks to go with the champagne.
 
We played jeopardy, reviewed the many Club accomplishments and nibbled on some cookies.
 
It was wonderful to see so many of the Club members at the Charter Night celebration.
A wonderful celebration in honor of 25 years for the Fidalgo Island Rotary Club.
