Thanks to School Counselor, Kathy Dryden, several dozen winter coats
purchased by the Rotary Club of Kirkland were distributed to students
at John Muir Elementary. Additionally, School Counselor Brynn Nielsen
of Robert Frost Elementary was able to ensure a number of students
from Robert Frost Elementary also received new winter coats.
For many years, Rotary Club of Kirkland’s Warm Coats program has
been providing coats to needy students at John Muir. Members of the
Club were on hand at the school Friday morning, October 20, to unwrap
the coats and assist the students in selecting their preferred size
and color. Parents and students left the event assured that they had
nothing to fear from the coming winter cold!
Since 1937, The Rotary Club of Kirkland has been providing various
services and conceiving and helping to finance numerous projects in
Kirkland, from Christmas food baskets to the Club’s most recent project,
the new Picnic Pavilion at Waverly Park.
