The July picnic was a success for Hopelink . I turned in 35 pounds Of food, $34 from the 50/50 drawing. I think it was $178 from the raffle. After I dropped everything at Hopelink I stopped by the care center and gave all the receipts to our president. I didn't write it down but I think that was what the amount was (in the ballpark anyway). You know where the receipts are if you want to see them.
The people at Hopelink recognized me and said they really appreciated all the support our club had given them.
Our next big push for food will be Thanksgiving. Can you believe we are talking about that already? After the big food drive Thanksgiving, we will concentrate on bringing gifts for children for Christmas . I'm mentioning this early for two reasons: (1) for the information for our new members and (2) just in case you might run into a good sale. I already have mine. I got in on the half-price and less after last Christmas. I got dolls, doll dishes, little cars and some games. Now all I need now is something for teens. Can you believe I'm talking about Christmas in August, and it is 80 plus something outside? Anyway, Hopelink thanks you and I thank you. Let's keep It coming!

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.

|AUGUST 2014 PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE|
The August Potluck is generally the President's Steak BBQ. Bring a potluck to share and a steak, hamburger, chicken or meat of your choice and cook it yourself on our BBQ out back. The President is hoping to be there just as I made it to the All Non-Profits of Kenmore Picnic.
I thank all the new members who joined KCC and I enjoyed speaking with you. Soon hopefully I will be mailing you a new member packet. Thanks to all of you who helped with clean-up at the picnic. It is important that we leave the hall clean for the next renter or group who will use the hall.
I am still at Life Care Center of Kirkland with the possibility of being home in a couple weeks. Thank you to those who sent cards and stopped by to visit. It sure makes the time go faster.
Our historical remodel project is moving forward. Annette and I had a meeting with those involved with the project and set some priorities for getting the work done. We established what needed to be done according to the grant to bring the building back to its original condition. It will be a huge undertaking and we are looking forward to the start of the project. They do have requirements for all portions of the work to be done. Annette has met with the county regarding the Historical Preservation designation, and will be working with the county to complete the application.
The City of Kenmore came to us several months ago with a request to use the KCC building in the event of a disaster in our area. They were obtaining bids for the cost of putting in a generator on the property as one of the requirements. The cost was quite high. We now have contacted the City to let them know we could possibly be opening some walls for adding insulation and it could save them some money if they put in the required wiring at the same time. They are interested in attending our planning meetings. We will keep you informed of our progress.
At some point in the near future our members need to participate in a work party to make some necessary repairs and do some basic cleaning, yard work, or even some touch up painting. If you are interested in helping at a work party or even by yourself sometime, please let Annette or one of the board members know.
KEEP YOUR MIND OPEN TO A DATE WHEN YOU CAN HELP WITH A WORK PARTY. THERE IS A LOT OF EXTRA CLEANING, ETC. THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE.
Thank you to Larry and Susie Ormbrek for striping the parking lot. Ed pressure washed where the stripes were to be painted, Annette went to Home Depot for the materials and pretty soon the job was done. It was a hot day but they got it done early. THANKS AGAIN LARRY AND SUSIE!
Good job Elias on mowing the lawn!!!
DID YOU KNOW ...
That the KCC has members (Susie & Larry Ormbrek), who have a "Kitty B&B" in their home?
Yes, they board Kitties and Cats while people go on Vacation, have their homes worked on, and even go in the Hospital!
Cats can only be left at home alone for a couple of days, so now there is a loving place they can be left in Kenmore!
Feel free to check it out ahead of time, it's located only 2 minutes from the Kenmore Community Club!
You can also check it out online, at TheKittyBB.com or call 425-488-0494
"Your cat will miss you, but he'll be glad he's here!"
One item to be given away at the Picnic was a gift certificate to The Kitty B&B which was donated by owners Larry and Susie Ormbrek. It was inadvertently left out. Look for more info at TheKittyBB.com or phone them at 425-488-0494. "Your kitty will miss you, but he'll be glad he is here!" We will find some way to use this prize.
LIFE LINE SCREENING
Please read the flyers on the table entry way. Life Line Screening will again be here to perform these important tests on Thursday, September 4th from 9 till 3. They have rented the hall at least two times a year and are quite accurate in finding possible medical problems, and give suggestions how to take action to take care of them.
The five-dollar winner of the member incentive drawing in July was Carol Parrish. Five dollars will go to the member whose name is drawn at the August potluck if that member is in attendance: Good luck! There were 37 people who signed in at the July picnic, plus quite a few children.
WHAT'S NEW AROUND KENMORE?
The old Fire Station on 73rd and 180th is taking on a new look. It is being transformed into Columbia Crest Montessori. They are now enrolling Toddlers, Preschoolers and Kindergarten Students. Call them at 425-485-kids (5437) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Couldn't they have named it Fire Hall School?
The nation's finest men and women who volunteer to serve in the armed forces are stationed all around the world to support friendly countries and protect our country's interest in those lands.
