Pulling Back the Curtain on the Cannabis Industry

Since legalizing medical marijuana in 1998 and the sale and recreational use of it in 2012, followed opening the first store two years later, the cannabis industry in Washington State has changed dramatically. Next week’s panel brings together a scientist, manufacturer and finance executive to bust your myths, expand your knowledge and answer your questions about cannabis. What they will share with you will certainly change how you think about, and likely use, this plant-based product. VP of Programs Beth Knox will moderate this panel featuring Shannon Vetto, CEO of Evergreen Market; Jessica Tonani, CEO of Verda Bio; and Jackie Brassington, COO and GM of Evergreen Herbal.

Meet New Member Elijah Funk

Pablo Picasso once said that “Action is the foundational key to all success.” And I’m here today to introduce a man of action and our newest young Rotarian, Elijah Funk, classification Insurance.
Many of you may have already met or heard from Eli, as he’s gotten involved quite quickly with our club these past three months through not only the Young Rotary Leaders, but with the Program Committee, as well.  We have his girlfriend, Caroline, to thank for all of this, as it was from her aunt, Sue McNab, that he learned about us.

Rotary Happy Hour on World Mosquito Day

Did you know that August 20th is World Mosquito Day which commemorates the discovery that female mosquitoes are the cause of malaria infection?  Join us for this special Happy Hour when we'll hear from two members as they share their personal experiences on malaria service projects to Africa, learn how to mix the perfect gin & tonic, be entertained with some mosquito jokes, and of course, have time to socialize with fellow members.  For every member who attends, we will purchase a mosquito net to protect a family and help curb the spread of malaria. This is a happy hour where you can truly connect for good - don't miss it!!

Oedipus the King
A Livestream Production by Play Your Part

Thebes is faced with a flesh-eating plague that is killing its people. The gods claim the only way to save the city is to uncover the man who murdered their former king and kill or exile him. Oedipus, famous for having saved Thebes by solving the riddle of the Sphinx, learns from a blind prophet that he himself is the very murderer he seeks, and that he is destined for a fate worse than death. Relentless and maniacal in his pursuit of the truth, Oedipus roots out those who know the origins of his birth. What is revealed leads to even more ghastly acts of free-will in the face of inescapable doom.
Don't miss this special production supported by a grant from the Seattle Rotary Service Foundation.
