Sara Scheetz is scheduled to share more information about A Caring Closet, a non-profit organization that provides gently used Durable Medical Equipment to those in need at no cost.
This week's meeting will be in Conference Room C&D on the third floor at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center. There will be a major event in the hospital lobby at the same time, so please be sure to arrive early (for parking) and use the skybridge to walk between parking and the hospital. Thanks!
Sheetz's A Caring Closet non-profit which primarily serves the geriatric population - also accepts microwave ovens that are donated to Meals on Wheels. A Caring Closet is operated 100 percent by volunteers, and does not turn anyone away.
Scheetz is the CEO of At Your Place Senior Care. She was raised in Clark County, is passionate about her community and a huge believer in volunteerism. She is the co-founder of “A Caring Closet.” She has served on the Firstenburg Meals on Wheels Steering Committee since 2008 and is on the board of Mobile Healthcare Providers Northwest.
In her spare time you might find her jogging on a local trail or running a race on the weekends. She loves spending time with her family, friends and three dogs.
Tina Vlachos will introduce Sara at this meeting.
On April 19, 15 members, and a couple of proposed members, attended and took part in the discussion which was facilitated by President Elect Nelson Holmberg. Among the many terrific ideas that came out of the club discussion.
We have recapped, below, some of the notes that came from the discussion at last night's meeting. Again, many thanks to all who attended. It was great to hear from all of you.
100 Rotarians Who Care
There was general consensus both on site after the meeting, and through personal communications in the following days that this meeting was a big success. President Susanne, having heard of the popularity of the meeting, is even considering scheduling the next one for August 2018 during her program date.
It was a truly great meeting. We'll have more #3CreeksAt3Peaks socials like this one!
As we near our club's two-year anniversary, it feels like great timing for all of us (hopefully) to sit down together and discuss the club.
Club leaders are particularly interested in listening to any and all thoughts members have about the club and where we are after nearly two years together. There is also a high level of interest in discussing a club vision, which would help us target the direction of the club for the next year or so.
This meeting is intended to be a relaxed, fun opportunity to enjoy some time together, have something to drink and share conversation about our club. It's also a chance to ask questions, share concerns, comments and constructive criticisms so we can talk about it together.
The end goal is to create a unified vision from club members for the next year in the life of our club.
This is just one of the ideas to "try something new" that President Elect Nelson spoke about in the article he wrote in the last issue of Tributaries.
Please plan to be there.
