Today we brought our dog and cat food collections for Pet Food Drive for the Homeward
Pet Food Bank in Woodinville; https://www.homewardpet.org/homeward-pet-food-bank. The table
was full. Thank you, bowlers, caregivers, and friends.


We have had a great month not only bowling but connection with each other via phone,
Facebook, and other social media.


– For April., we recognize Christine Cech 33 on the 11th, Sarah Carlile 39 on 17th, and Karley Kroshaben 38 on the 29th.

Our Members

It was good to have back Nick and Christine (lives in Renton now). We missed seeing some of our local long-time members today like Sean, Serena, Matt, Jeremey, Andy, Meghan, Brett, and Nathan. Other members have moved farther away such at Corey to Kent, Reed to Cle Elum, and Karley to Federal Way.

Service Projects

The May meeting is too late for Mother’s Day cards but there will be blank cards and stuff to make Father’s Day cards.


Happy News – Bonnie Sundberg of Kiwanis Club of Kirkland presented our club with an Everyday Hero Award for our work in the greater Kirkland community AND they provided each member a slice of pizza with a canned drink afterward at the adjacent Pagliacci Restaurant! Sad News – KCK President Dr. Larry Otten, who nominated our Aktion Club for this award and was a recipient himself in 2016, had a heart attack about 11 days ago and died Apr 7th. Certificates for those not present will be mailed to you.
