DUES FOR 2015
This is the time of year to pay your Dues! Membership dues for the Community Club are a whopping $10.00 per person, per year.
It's a new year with new hopes and new challenges which we will meet head on and keep on going. The one thing we do a very good job at is Hopelink.
I have the receipts from Hopelink for the December deliveries. In the jar there was $213, Plus $58 From the 50/50; the total $271. There was $50 in food value and over $175 value in toys. Plus my son-in-law donated a large framed picture of Russell Wilson which was autographed. The comment from Hopelink workers was "That will sure make some kid happy".
That is our goal, to make kids happy with warm clothes, warm homes and full stomachs. The Christmas gifts we give are just a bonus we are happy to give.
See you at the potluck on the 14th. And remember "The Jar" is always out and any other donation, just put in the corner and I will get them.
Happy New Year

The importance of club members and interested supporters of the community participating in club work parties cannot be stressed enough. Without the help more of this work will be farmed out which will raise the cost of our operations. Please remember this is your club house, you own it and it is up to you to help maintain it.

December was very busy for everyone I talked to. So now we can slow down a bit and look at what is coming up for the New Year. January's Potluck is also our Membership Meeting. If you have anything you want on the agenda, please let Marty know. I'm sure there will be some discussion regarding the new construction project. On December 18th we had the King County Landmark Board at the Community Club to discuss whether our clubhouse building should be listed as a Historic Building or not. After some interesting presentations, speakers and slide show the Board had the formal hearing and it was decided that we will receive our Historic Landmark designation. The "Legal Paperwork" should be arriving in the mail soon. Bud spent a great deal of time gathering history, meetings, etc. to make this happen. This will help to ensure that the Kenmore Community Club Building remains where and what it is. There was a fairly good public attendance and the first meeting of our new Kenmore Representative to the Landmark Board, Linda Ottmar, longtime Kenmore resident. It was also the first Historic Landmark Designation in Kenmore since it became a city. I personally am very excited about this.
Feel free to ask me any questions regarding the building project. The funds were appropriated by King County Council and will be managed by 4 Culture. The project will be closely followed by 4 Culture and we are required to take pictures before, during and after the construction to keep them informed of our progress, and before we can request any money draws from the funds. I believe the bids are in and ready for the roof, which is their recommendation on where to start and the KCC Board agreed. When the roof is complete we will be looking at either windows, insulation or siding.
Thank you to Bobbie DeCoster, Don Ivanhoe and his Granddaughter Brooklyn, Karen Spencer and Myself for decorating the Christmas tree in early December. It was enjoyed by many renters and they always appreciate having it there. And now thank you to Don and Wendy and Myself for un-decorating the tree, stuffing it in the box and hauling it up to the attic.
In December we had a very exciting Christmas Potluck. Everyone seemed to have a good time. There were approximately 40 adults and numerous young people present. We had our usual present exchange which was lively and a present exchange for the kids. Carol Parrish had her name drawn in our monthly incentive drawing. She was in attendance and promptly donated her $5.00 to our HopeLink fund. Thank you Carol.
We have a new business coming to Kenmore in the area behind the Post Office named Speedy Reedy and it says "Swim, Bike, Run". Not sure exactly what it is, but it will be opening soon according to the sign.
PLEASE NOTE! The City of Kenmore is presenting a Proclamation to the Kenmore Community Club on Monday, January 12th at 7:00 PM at the start of their council meeting. I know it is short notice, but if you could attend it would be good.
Happy New Year, Annette
