A former member and former treasurer of our club, Lyle Ryan, was installed as the governor of District 5050 on July 19.  He was a member of our club when he was the branch manager of the Arlington Branch of Frontier Bank.  When he was promoted to a position with the bank in Everett, he joined the Everett Club. Lyle is married to P.J. Ryan, who is also a previous member of our club.

Rotary Grant Sought for International Water Project

A Partnership With Rotary Club of Bungoma South in Bungoma, Kenya

Father Christopher from Bungoma, Kenya presented.

Father Christopher was born in a rural village, catholic, raised in a poor family on a farm, helped family run farm.  He did not start school until age 15, made it all the way through.  Ordained November 1990.  Serves as Pastor in Bungoma, Kenya, serves 38,000 parishioners in the area.  Director of Christ the King Primary school, 1,300 students.  Has a certificate philosophy.  Member of South Bungoma Rotary.

Our sustainable water project will be located in Bungoma.

We are looking at doing a water tank at Christ the King School and two deep wells in two areas.

Total cost is approximately $102,438 could be up to $140-150k.

Swahili is national language in Bungoma.

School begins at 6am and ends at 6:30pm, most children walk to school.  We have the wells drilled and plastic water tanks but one blew up.  We are concerned about the children.  The community also uses the water.

Where one of the wells will be located there is a high school with 600 students, primary school with 1,100 children, community around it has 5,000 people.  Whole community would benefit.

Where the other well will be located there is a primary school that has 400 students and a high school with 900 students.

About 90% of the children go to primary school, there is an exam at 8th grade, those with high marks go on to a better school.  50% proceed into high school.   Christ the King was #2 on performance.

There will be day and night guards around the wells.  No chance of the well drying it up, will be drilled deep enough.

Our Rotary club has about 25 members, we meet every Friday.

Population of Bungoma = 250,000.  52% of the population of Kenya is under 25 years old.

Dr. Ron has been to Bungoma three times.

Dr. Lee Harman discussed the Wesley Duane Schierman Memorial Airport Dedication. See link below to Herald article.

Lee has been a private pilot for 36 years, single engine, land instrument rated, captain in Medical Corps, owned 8 air craft over the years.

Wes is one of the three founders of the Blackjack Squadron, shot down in Vietnam, was an early POW, passed away on January 4, 2014 after a struggle with cancer, and flew for Northwest Airlines.  Wes was familiar with John McCain while a POW.

Some 50 area pilots have been “patched” as a part of the Blackjack Squadron.

Arlington Municipal Airport unofficially known as “Schierman Field” - The field will be officially dedicated to Wes Schierman.

Memorial sign will be placed at the Arlington Airport.  It will be three dimensional and discuss Wes and his contributions.

Volunteers lead the American Red Cross – 462 volunteers, 188 local, 60 from elsewhere in Western, WA, 124 from the West Coast, 90 from elsewhere, 50 staff
