Happy Hour 4 Good

Lake Union Rotary's 3rd Thursday Happy Hour for Good continues this summer lakefront on South Lake Union in Seattle. 100% of the net proceeds benefit Coyote Central.  For $50 you will enjoy wine, microbrews, a casual dinner and live music on the dock.  All 21 and over are welcome.  Have refreshing food and beverage for a cause and raise some money while you're at it!
  • Beer from Georgetown Brewing Co. and a selection of wines
  • BBQ from Pecos Pit BBQ
  • Live Music from Writnwood, a Seattle-based 5-piece alt blue grass string band.


Zoom:  We need some more members to volunteer to be Zoom hosts at our club meetings.  You simply admit people from the "waiting room" and mute everyone when the meeting starts. (3 people needed)

Registration Desk:  Do you have some time from noon to 12:30 on in-person club meeting days?  You'll help take lunch payments, give out name tags to guests, and tell special guests where they're seated.  And, you get to say hi to your fellow members. (3 people needed)

Contact Carma if you can volunteer.  It's only once a month and you'll be helping us out tremendously.

Terri Lingenbrink
1961 - 2023

We are sad to share the passing of our former member, Terri Lingenbrink. Her husband Steve (also a former Seattle 4 Rotarian and Past District Governor) writes:
It is with a heavy heart that we write this post. Teresa "Terri" Lingenbrink passed peacefully today at Casa de la Luz Hospice in Tucson, Arizona. The Hospice is located on "The Loop" on the Rillito River where she used to run daily.  Though she fought a valiant battle with her cancer, she took her last breath peacefully on July 9th.
Fortunately she was able to spend much time with her immediate family before her passing.  Words can’t describe how much we’ll miss Terri. She lit up every room with her sunny smile and always knew how to make people laugh. She always showed so much care and love to everyone around her!
Funeral service are unknown at this time.
