For those new to Rotary we would love to introduce you to our club and all the great things that we are working on.  Please join us and breakfast is on us!

Our Meeting Location :
The Center for Wooden Boats

Parking Information:
Parking near The Center for Wooden Boats can be a challenge.  The Center for Wooden Boats has a small lot near the SLU Streetcar stop in Lake Union Park. When you arrive, please park with your car’s back facing the curb and get a parking pass from the greeter to put on your dashboard.

There is ample additional parking in several lots near by.   We recommend  the large public parking lot just off of  Westlake Ave across the street from Courtyard by Marriott (925 Westlake Avenue North Seattle, WA 98109).  Park here and walk around Lake Union Park.
