2. TOPIC: House Update:
Micah Burlingame, long awaited and very welcomed new Carpentry Assistant, was introduced
to and welcomed by the committee.
Last Year’s House: The house was sold and closed the first of February and the new owner
moved in. He’s absolutely thrilled with the house and has nothing but praise for the quality of
the house. He said his home inspector gave praises too and said he wasn’t able to find
anything that needed to be corrected. I told the students and they were really excited to hear
This year’s house: We are still working on framing the roof and setting the trusses and plan to
have it finished by the end of the month so that we can have it roofed before Spring Break.
The roofing contractor is new to us this year but his bid came in over a thousand dollars less
than the next bidder. The owner says he will be there when they start so he can go review the
process with the students.
There are a total of 26 students, 13 students in the morning class and 13 in the afternoon class.
This includes 7 seniors and the rest are juniors. Of the 26 students there are 12 signed up for
Tech Prep through EdCC.
Monty shared that Connie is hoping to put the house on the market at $379,000.
3. TOPIC: Program Presentation to the Rotary Club
The presentation went very well. Jim set up the introduction, Ralph talked about the history,
Mark Madison talked about the value of the program and the connection with the community
college, Scott talked about the curriculum, students and current house. Then former student
Denis Vakulchik and current student Dakota Farmer gave their perspective on what the
program is to them. It was so well received that members stayed and talked after the meeting
where normally when 1:30pm hits they are out of there.
4. TOPIC: CTE Carpentry Leadership and Achievement Recognition Award
The student this year is most likely going to be Dakota Farmer from Lynnwood High School.
Dakota not only represented the program at the Rotary Presentation but has been a student of
the month for the class and was also awarded the Alderwood Rotary CTE Student of the
month for Carpentry in December. There are a couple of other students that are right up there
with their performance who could qualify so it isn’t totally decided quite yet. I should know
within a couple of weeks and will notify the CTE Department of who it is. The members
agreed with my recommendation.
ACTION NEEDED: Scott will be choosing the recipient in the near future and will inform the CTE

7. TOPIC: From the Floor:
Rotary Member Ken Pierce wrote up a submittal for consideration for the Club to receive an
endowment from the Hazel Miller Foundation, and $15,000 was awarded. Part of this will go
into the house program possibly in the form of money for landscaping and helping to pay for
Ralph brought up landscaping for the house and the need for curb appeal. He mentioned the
possibility of getting the Garden Club to help with the landscaping.
