Joy Shigaki, Friends of the Waterfront and President Nancy's Last Meeting, Gavel Pass

*Please arrive early; we have a packed agenda!*

Join Friends of Waterfront Park’s President and CEO, Joy Shigaki, as she shares the integral work being done on Seattle’s new world-class 20-acre public space.

After over two decades of imagining, planning and building, Waterfront Park will open to the public in early 2025. Playing an indispensable role now and into the future, Friends of Waterfront Park offers non-profit leadership in the park’s management, fundraising, programming and activation, as well as stewarding the park for generations to come.

Opportunities Abound for Members Looking to Connect and Get More Involved

Are you a newer or established club member looking to feel more connected and engaged with your club? Would you like to be a welcoming face to prospective club members, visiting Rotarians, and guests attending lunch meetings? Consider adding yourself to the greeter list! You can commit to as few or as many meetings as you want. Many hands make for light work!
We will have additional greeter and meeting assistant needs in our 24/25 Rotary year as we move some meetings over to Plymouth Church starting in August so it is imperative that we add some new names to the roster!
If you would like to be added to our greeter mailing list, please email

There will be delicious appetizers, wine, beer and soft drinks.  It’s going to be a lovely event.
