One big event is in the books, and another one ahead, for the Rotary Club of West Seattle. First, what’s ahead: Advance orders are now being taken for the annual berry sale – deliveries are expected in July, but the sooner you order, the better. As usual, it’s a three-round sale – strawberries first, then raspberries, then blueberries; prices and projected pickup dates are listed here; you can place an order online by going to this page. It’s another of their major fundraisers for activities such as the annual Children’s Holiday Shopping Spree. Earlier this week, they gathered for the annual breakfast – photos ahead:
Guest speaker was Jim Dever, from KING 5. Also at the mike: Rotarian Josh Sutton, as emcee:
Food Lifeline president/CEO Linda Nageotte – a West Seattleite – paused for a photo with past president Amy Lee Derenthal:
Local political leaders attended too – here’s County Councilmember Joe McDermott:
And State Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon:
The club usually meets at noon Tuesdays at Salty’s on Alki, which is where this year’s breakfast event was held, too.
