Camp Goodtimes Carnival, June 25 — SAVE THE DATE!
Camp Goodtimes is a place where kids dealing with cancer can talk with other kids fighting the same battle; talk with counselors who are only a few years older and cancer survivors; and talk with volunteer doctors and nurses who spend their vacations supporting Camp Goodtimes.
So, how does Rotary do something to help minimize the threats of this disease and get these kids to DANCE? They throw a carnival, complete with face painting, cotton candy and snow cones, gigantic squirt guns, dunk tank, air moon walks, whipped cream fight, and hair styling – mohawks and red, blue, pink coloring.
The date for Camp Goodtimes 2015 is June 25, on Vashon Island (Camp Burton). Mark your calendars now! We need lots of volunteers!

Seahawks Make Donation to Support Inspiration Playground in Bellevue
Bellevue Rotary Press Release
Mar 9, 2015
The Rotary Club of Bellevue is pleased to announce a $20,000 donation was received from the Seattle Seahawks for the purchase of a SwayFun Glider, to be installed at the Inspiration Playground project in Bellevue Downtown Park. The SwayFun Glider is a wheelchair accessible swing that includes benches for other passengers. The Rotary Club of Bellevue will ensure the swing features authentic Seahawks colors. The donation is part of the Seahawks PLAY 60 program, a league wide effort to fight childhood obesity by encouraging youth and families to be active for at least 60 minutes a day.
Inspiration Playground PLAY FOR ALL Campaign
The Rotary Club of Bellevue has partnered with the City of Bellevue to help fund and build a truly inclusive outdoor play environment at the Bellevue Downtown Park. The Inspiration Playground is envisioned as a destination recreational resource for Bellevue, the greater Eastside and all of King County. It will have a universally accessible design and feature sensory-rich play experiences and equipment suitable for all ages and abilities. The play spaces will accommodate the needs of all children — those who are typically developing, as well as those with physical, cognitive, or sensory disabilities.
