Welcome To Rotary Club of Gig Harbor North!
Our club follows the Rotary "Service Above Self" mission in  our local community and internationally. 
 
Locally we support Food Backpacks4Kids, Communities in Schools Peninsula, Children's Home Society, and the Red Barn. This summer, with the help of a district grant, we are funding a summer enrichment program for Evergreen Elementary School on Key Peninsula. Nearly half our club members are volunteering at the school. 
 
Our most recent international project took six local high school students to the mountains of Guatemala on a service trip for Opal House. We are proposing a similar trip for the 2019-2020 school year. 
 
The Galloping Gertie Half Marathon is our premier fundraising event. This year it will occur Saturday, August 10. Runners and volunteers are needed! 
 
 
 
 
What We've Been Doing
Bob Anderson was inducted as our 2019-20 President during a family picnic at Crescent Creek Park. Outgoing President Lou Melendez handed over the reins to Bob (left) as members and families look on. 
 
 
 
 

Six high school students from Gig Harbor traveled to Guatemala on a program led by Gig Harbor North Rotary and supported by the two other Gig Harbor Rotary clubs.

 

 
Anne Nesbit received the 2019 Star Award for her charity of choice, the Gig Harbor & Key Peninsula Suicide Prevention Coalition. 

 

Our club hosted an "InterGenFest" service event on March 30, 2019 at the Boys & Girls Club of Gig Harbor. The event brought together 52 seniors and youth to socialize and learn from each other. 

 

 
More than one million Rotary members have donated their time and personal resources to end polio.  One of these members is our own member Donna Eggen.  Donna shared her experience in Ethiopia volunteering and assisting in giving Polio vaccine drops.  Today Ethiopia is considered to be Polio Free from new cases.
Starting September 4, 2018, our club meetings will be held in the Maritime Room of Heron's Key, 4340 Borgen Blvd, Gig Harbor.  We are excited to meet at this beautiful new building. 
A celebration was held to induct Lou Melendez as our current President, and to thank Past President Ken Roberts for his 3 years of service.
 
The three Rotary clubs of Gig Harbor honored John Dionas, Robin Malich, and Kurt Grimmer at our Star of the Year Award Ceremony.  The recipients were presented with a Paul Harris Fellow award in recognition of their service contributions to our community.
