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, and Children's Home Society. This summer, with the help of a district grant, we funded a summer enrichment program for Evergreen Elementary School on Key Peninsula. Nearly half our club members volunteered 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 annual fundraising event. We hope to see you at our next race in August, 2020!
 
 
What We've Been Doing
 
 
Recently a collaboration has developed between Rotary International and Toastmasters International. At our Feb. 4, 2020 meeting, Rumi Keast helped us celebrate that partnership locally. And on Feb. 18, Rumi was joined by Dee DeMars and Bob Ingram for a presentation about the importance of personal relationships, kindness, and role modeling. 
 
 
Calling all Key Peninsulans! Join us on February 27 at the Mustard Seed offices to consider becoming a Charter Member of a Rotary Satellite Club on the Peninsula.
 
 
On December 3, 2020, Dr. Art Jarvis reported on construction projects within the Peninsula School District, and also explained the importance of voting in favor of the upcoming levy.
 
 
 
 
 
District Governor Maureen (Mo) Fitz-Roberts shared her inspiring history with our membership during the August 20, 2019 meeting.
 
 
 
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.

 

 

 

Our club hosted an "InterGenFest" service event on March 30, 2019 at the Boys & Girls Club of Gig Harbor. 

 

 
 
Member Donna Eggen shared her experiences in Ethiopia at the September 5, 2018 meeting.
 
 
In June, 2018, President-elect Lou Melendez and Kathi Melendez attended the Rotary International Convention in Toronto, Canada. 
 
 
 
 
In May, 2018, our club members enjoyed helping the Pierce County Food Bank pack food for distribution.
