FUN Stories
As a Rotary Club, about 50 percent of our service projects take place right here on Fidalgo Island, in an effort to continually give back to our local community. One of our many projects this year is to serve breakfast and deliver resources for patients at the Didgwalic Wellness Center on March's Point Road in Anacortes. The breakfast will occur quarterly from 6 to 10 a.m., starting on Wednesday, Feb. 26.
Every day, the center, run and supported by the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community, provides integrated medical care and social services for approximately 250 community members facing mental health challenges and substance abuse disorders. Our club's provision of a hot meal, supplies and smiling faces will contribute to their success in treatment. 
Funding for this project is being jointly provided by a district grant and the club's community service committee.  Thanks to Moka Joe for providing a generous discount on hot food items, and of course all our club members who are volunteering to serve food and provide support.  
Interested in volunteering with this project to serve breakfast on Feb. 26? Contact Greg Dixon at dixongregory@gmail.com.
 
SAVE THE DATE for our annual fundraiser auction: 5:30 p.m. March 14 at the Port Transit Shed! This year, Fidalgo Island Rotary presents: “Artists on the Edge,” an event to benefit Rotary community service projects locally & internationally.

Join us for the opportunity to see the area’s top circus performers wow and amaze you, as you browse art of all kinds from local artists, finding the perfect piece to cap your budding art collection. Those lucky enough to score VIP tickets will receive two FREE drink tickets (with wine poured by an aerial artist!), a designated Dessert Dash runner, premier table service, and tackle juggling lessons with world-renowned object manipulation experts. The event will culminate with a live auction, with the opportunity to bid on quintessential Pacific Northwest experience, such as a fresh-caught crab feed on the water, breweries and a Seahawks game or even a girls night out. Click to learn more or snag your ticket. 

 
 
Each year during January, Fidalgo Island Rotary celebrates its founding in 1997. In 2020, we celebrated our 23rd year as a club. To honor the history of the club, we had longtime members share special memories, raised a glass to those no longer with us, and enjoyed a video of charter members recounting the early days of the Fun Club. Thank you to our Master of Ceremonies for the evening, Steve Rutz, and the Family of Rotary Committee for putting on such a fun event.
 
January is a month of celebration: A fresh start on New Year's Day, honoring Fidalgo Island Rotary's founding with our annual Charter Night, and of course, the birth of some of our favorite Rotarians! This past week, we celebrated four such fabulous people with a party at our morning meeting (shout out to birthday gal Kandy for the party decor and cake!) We celebrated Rachel, born Jan. 13, Kandy, Jan. 21, Jeannette, Jan. 24, and Madelyn, Jan. 28. However, Rachel and Kandy's birthday celebrations were a little extra special this year!
