Welcome To Gig Harbor North Rotary
Rotary Club of Gig Harbor North - Since our club's inception we have impacted our local community and our International friends.  Some of our activities: traveling to a remote village in Peru to create a computer lab and traveling with high school students to Guatemala in the mountains to work on a “refugio" for the Opal House.  We have supported Polio Plus, Food Backpacks4Kids, Communities in Schools, secured and implemented grant monies to assist homeless families, and others.  Our annual fundraiser, The Galloping Gertie is always a fun and profitable venture!
Come be a part of this "Service Above Self" Rotary club!
Our annual fund raiser will be Saturday, August 10, 2019       http://www.galloping-gertie.com/

Gig Harbor youth and members of our club Donna Eggen, Paul Miller & Bob Anderson traveled to Lake Atitlan, Guatemala to volunteer at the Opal House, a refuge for impoverished children in Guatemala.
Member Joe Urvina presenting a check to Anne Nesbit's charity - Gig Harbor & Key Peninsula Suicide Prevention Coalition.  As an active member of the Suicide Prevention Coalition and Volunteer Firefighter Battalion Chief, Anne dedicates her life to preventing suicide.  Nesbit is also the executive director of the Key Peninsula Free Clinic, works as a trainer for teachers of the statewide public school youth mental health curriculum, speaks at schools about suicide and youth violence prevention, and is a Safe Sitter class instructor.

Our club hosted an “InterGenFest” service event on March 30, 2019 at the Boys/Girls Club of Gig Harbor.  It was an experience exchange of activities between seniors and youth. The event had 52 participants and they responded; "We want to do this again!" Students from the Interact clubs at all three high schools in Gig Harbor participated in the planning of this event.  The Boys and Girls Club graciously donated their facility and local businesses Panera Bread, Cutters Point Coffee, Safeway and Costco contributed to the food and beverages.  Hands on Art provided watercolor supplies and Jeffrey Waters, editor of Northwest Watercolor Society donated his time to teach the watercolor classes.

 

 
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.
Our club meetings will now be held at our new location at Heron's Key located at 4340 Borgen Blvd, Gig Harbor in the Maritime Room.  We are excited to meet at this beautiful new building. 
A celebration to thank Past President Ken Roberts for his 3 years of service as our President and to induct Lou Melendez as our current President!  Board members inducted were Chris Eggen, Richard Soulam, Bob Anderson, Bob Southworth and Kathi Melendez.
Members shared appetizers and a giant chocolate cake!  Kathy West from Heron's Key provided refreshments.
Pres-elect Lou Melendez and Kathi Melendez attended the Rotary International Convention in Toronto, Canada.  Justin Trudeau, prime minister of Canada, was presented with Rotary’s Polio Eradication Champion Award in recognition of Canada’s contributions to polio eradication. Former First Lady of the United States Laura Bush, an advocate for literacy, education, and women’s rights, also spoke at the Convention.
 
All three Rotary clubs of Gig Harbor honored Robin Malich, John Dionas 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. 
Members and honored guests attended a celebration where contributions were made to Food Backpacks 4 Kids, Communities in Schools, Children's Home Society and Mary Bridge Children's Hospital. 
These contributions were made possible by our Galloping Gertie annual fundraiser.  Aaron Womack was honored as a Paul Harris recipient for his dedication to this event.
 
Our next Galloping Gertie will be Aug. 11, 2018.   http://www.galloping-gertie.com/event-info/
