The noontime Rotary Club of Edmonds received good news at its Tuesday meeting. Matt Smith, chair of the June Waterfront Festival, reported that the combination of good weather and hard-working Rotarians and other volunteers resulted in one of the best years ever for the festival, which netted about $40,000.
The money will be used for local scholarships, to support the YWCA’s Trinity Place transitional housing, and other local and international Rotary projects, the club said.
