Alan Erickson and "The Boys in the Boat"

Image

"The Boys in the Boat" - Book by Daniel James Brown
Al's dad, Dick Erickson was the rowing coach at UW for many years
The book highlights the quest for rowing gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, specifically the seventh seat, Joe Rantz.
Racing now and then is completely different.  Varsity races used to be 4 miles long
The team won the Olympic trials and went to Germany for Olympics.
The British crew was favored to win the Olympics, but the huskies beat them.
In the final race the Germans got the best lane, huskies got off to a bad start, one of the crew was sick but they ended up winning the race.
The "Husky Clipper" - the shell the crew used was built by George Pocock and still hangs at UW.  George Pocock built 19 of the 24 shells used at IRA.
The equipment used back then is completely different than what is used today.  Wooden boats no longer used, different design to the oars.

Aleph Fankenthall Speaks on Panama Project

Image

Aleph Fakenthall, with the Healing Fund, a local non profit who’s goal is to provide help, healing, and hope for those in need.  The primary outreach is the sustainable provision of clean drinking water to needy third world countries such as Panama.  They hand drill wells, install rain catchment systems and then provide the tools and training required so progress can continue in their absence.  Our club has helped fund projects and one of our members, Wally Thomas, has been on one of the work parties to Panama.

Image

Primary objective is clean drinking water but medical/dental and scholarships are aspects of the Healing Fund.

Provide help and healing to those in need and in the process share God’s love through our service actions.

Coordinate yearly trips to install water systems, teach community health and provide medical and dental care to the underserved.

Generate awareness in our local community of the need s of the Guaymi Indians in Panama and share the different ways how our community can help.

Reach out to other service organizations who would be willing to help our outreach.

2015 Panama Outreach Goals

  • Provide small engine repair training
  • Begin development of a micro loan program
  • Provide training for installing water catchment systems
  • Continue partnering with Peace Corps Volunteers
  • Install water catchment systems and drill more wells
  • Hold medical and dental clinic at different communities
  • Share God’s love through our service and actions

Last Charity Event in October

Our club has historically used funds we have raised to benefit kids and seniors.  As such we are an annual sponsor of the Arlington Education Foundation, the Cocoon House Evening in Silk Auction, and we helped sponsor both the Life Time Achievement Breakfast and Murder Mystery Dinner for the Stillaguamish Sr. Center through the purchase of linens and place settings for these two senior center events.  The Evening in Silk Auction was a huge success with chair our own honorary member, Marcia Smothers. The Murder Mystery Dinner at the Senior Center the evening of October 18 was a fun event. The Partnership 4 Kids Breakfast is October 24, Kent Prairie Elementary. It is another event postponed from last spring, benefits the Arlington School District and replaces the annual wine tasting event.  Funds  raised will help with classroom grants and to acquire two fabricating labs for each of our high schools.  3-D printers are at the heart of each lab.

News Section

The news section is separate from stories and on the website takes a little more effort to see.  You have to click on the items.  Each week we have added the winner of the football pool, so now you can see each winner since game 1.  At the end of the football season, there will be a drawing from amongst all of you who have participated for the right to name a Paul Harris Fellow with the matching portion that is going to the Rotary Foundaiton.

Update Your Profile

It is important for club administration that you keep your profile up to date.  You need to log into the administration area and click on update profile.  There is information under the various tabs to also complete.  We want to know, for example, who proposed you for membership and that is under the Rotary tab.
