The Best Breakfast Club
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Lake Forest Park, celebrating our 30th anniversary! We are a diverse and dynamic group of local women and men who are both very involved in our professional lives in a variety of businesses and very dedicated to local, national, and international community service. We have lots of energy and enthusiasm, annually tackling over forty service projects that enhance our world and make people’s lives better.
We gather weekly to share a delicious breakfast, network with our friends, and listen to fascinating and engaging speakers. We know how to have fun! Our meetings are informal (shorts in season will fit right in) and mix warmth, laughter, and energy with a reminder of why we are here: to serve our neighborhood and world communities.
In times of need, our members can always be counted on to volunteer both physical and financial assistance. We are dedicated to building a strong, diverse, and close-knit community.
Come for a free Wednesday morning breakfast and then join us in building a better world! Please contact [email protected] or visit our website at members.lakeforestparkrotary.com for more information.
As Rotarians, we work in a team environment to achieve our shared goals and objectives, to make our communities and world a better place!
From our shared work on service projects making life better for many in our communities, to our lively social events, to our weekly Wednesday breakfast meetings with timely speakers addressing the issues of the day - we provide lots of opportunities to forge lifetime-long relationships with people just like yourself. Everything we do celebrates the dynamic and diverse world of the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
We offer lots of opportunities to serve our local, national, and international communities. Members lead and support over 40 projects.
Some of these projects have been: Medical and dental care for low-income families, Domestic Violence Program, Food bank programs, High school senior scholarships, Service clubs for high school and college students, Elementary and high school flexible-time sponsored programs, Music in schools, Holiday toy and food drives, Eradication of polio around the world, and Elimination of malaria internationally.
All of our members are dedicated to service. Our weekly meetings, social events, and project work will enable you to develop and nurture connections with a broad network of professionals.
The time we take to serve those who need us can be the turning point, not only in their lives but also in our own.
The life blood of our club comes from our dedicated members.
"I joined Rotary to meet a diverse group of civic-minded people and to network with others in the community. I enjoy volunteering and making our Lake Forest Park community a cleaner and healthier place in which to thrive."
Paul was born in Kodiak, Alaska and is of Aleut, Russian, Swedish, and English descent. He grew up on a remote island, which gave him a deep appreciation for subsistence living. Paul is a graduate of the Alber’s School of Business at Seattle University, with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He married his college sweetheart, Gina, on the coldest day in Washington state history. They live in Lake Forest Park among the hillside and trees in their dream ‘tree fort’. Paul’s work in Rotary has opened doors into being an adult advisor for LFP Rotary’s Youth Council, and volunteering in city government and public works. He also enjoys walking his Dalmatians, riding his bike, and his latest hobby – bonsai!
"My grandpa was very involved in his community and always expressed how important that was to him. His passing away in 2017 sparked in me the desire to be more involved where I lived. I may not live in Lake Forest Park forever, but this is home for now, and this is my community for now; so this is where I feel compelled to serve now."
I was born and raised in Woodinville. I always enjoyed being active outdoors and exploring the Tolt Pipeline! I studied at University of Denver and received a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology. Denver was a fabulous place to explore the mountains and meet new friends who now live all over the world. I eventually moved back to the Pacific Northwest to be closer to my growing family of sisters-in-law, nieces, and nephews. During my return, my love and appreciation for this area grew and continues to grow. What a beautiful place we live in.
"I joined Rotary when I moved from Maryland to Washington in 2013. We knew no one in Lake Forest Park and I thought Rotary would be a great way to meet members of our community and help others. It was my entry into the wonderful world of community service, and to a great group of people who have turned into friends. For me, Rotary opened up lots of opportunities for “Service Above Self”!"
