The club also works to help people find shelter and food.

Tom Saxon dedicated his 40-year recognition to Bernie Sigler, who introduced him to the club.

  1. Congratulations Honerees,

    I know all of the featured Rotary member and had I not chased jobs all over the Pacific Northwest, my years in Lynnwood Rotary would be up there. As it is, I wore my past presiden’s badge proudly as secretary of Southcenter Rotary and wear it still as a rule 85 member of the Rotary Club of Gig Harbor

    Best wishes to all Lynnwood Rotary members
