Irrigation Festival Parade called "best in 30 years"!

The Irrigation Festival Parade was a great success and I want to thank all of you for your help to make it happen.  This has been the year of streamlining and condensing responsibilities to make it a more manageable event.  I have managed the Parade for two years and would like to offer the opportunity for another Rotary member to continue this great community service event for our Club.  I will be compiling a more complete workbook for the management and operations of the parade.  I hope every year this notebook and plans will be updated and streamlined for volunteers.   I will be glad to assist the 2016 Grand Parade manager in any way I can.  Thanks again for all your efforts to make this parade "the best in 30 years as commented by Emily Wescott"

Joanne Kidd, owned and operated a small business and worked for the Sequim school district for nearly 30 years.  Now retired, she continues to give back to the children and families in our community as a volunteer with Sequim Guild for Children’s Hospital, the Red Cross, and the Boys & Girls Club.  Joanne puts her office management and computer skills to work to help with records-keeping and fundraisers. She is a real go- getter with very valuable skills that make her an asset to any organization.

Trent Pomeroy, son of Rotarian Harold Pomeroy, has been actively involved in his dad’s daily life since moving here in 2000.  Trent and his family moved to Port Angeles and is a fourth grade teacher at Hamilton Elementary in Port Angeles.  Trent is an accomplished musician both vocally, enjoying musical theatre and as a pianist.  “Light jazz, new age” is how Trent describes his original compositions that are both meditative and melodically rich.  Trent received this recognition from his dad today.

Mayme Messinger Faulk has been an active volunteer with Soroptimist Int’l, The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula, The Museum and Art Center and Sequim Schools’ class reunions for the past 10 years.  Mayme has used her skills to help maintain personnel databases and records for the class reunions and Boys & Girls Club where she also served on the board.   With a heart for service and a passion, Mayme works tirelessly for the people and children of our Sequim community.

Kathy Schock is a director of Sequim Education Foundation. She started the SEF Engineering Challenge to validate and encourage budding engineers. For the past eight years, Kathy has chaired the SEF Grant Program providing teachers funding for projects benefiting some 25,000 students. In 2010, Kathy led a team of coaches and parents to found the Sequim Wolf Pack Youth Football and Cheerleader Program for boys and girls age 6 to 12. In her “spare” time, Kathy tutors students in math and science.

Colleen Robinson, is passionate about finding appropriate families to foster kids in Clallam County.  “It’s definitely a special calling” Robinson said about fostering teenagers in particular. “Most importantly, no matter what the age of the child you take into your home, you have to have a heart and passion for children.”  The need for foster families in Clallam County is always great. Colleen was recognized by the Sequim Noon Rotary for her unflagging work for the all but forgotten kids of our community!

Vice-Chair Liz Mueller, received Sequim Noon Rotary’s Paul Harris Fellow Award on behalf of Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe Chairman W. Ron Allen who was travelling. Ron travels extensively on behalf of the tribe and is focused on diversifying organization’s business centers in the Sequim-Dungeness community. Weighing in on issues at both the local and national levels, Mr. Allen has worked tirelessly for the past 30 years doing good things not only for the tribe, but also for our community.
