The Hands on Art program

Founded in 2003 by concerned parents and local artists,  Peninsula Hands On Art serves approximately 3,800 students in grades K-5 in the greater Gig Harbor area. Each year,  Peninsula Hands On Art provides four art projects to these students, designed centrally and presented in the classroom by trained volunteer docents. The docents teach classes using professionally developed curricula that incorporate art theory and history.

Marla serves on the board as Treasurer.  Her experience with Peninsula Hands on Art began 13 years ago when she painted a salmon at the first PHOA docent training, and watched her two boys flourish in the program while students at Harbor Heights. She is excited be involved in this organization as it continues to bring amazing art projects into classrooms throughout Gig Harbor.

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 include traveling to a remote village in Peru to create a computer lab and traveling with high school students to Guatemala in the mountains above Lake Atitlan to work on a “refugio" for the Opal House.  We have supported Food Backpacks4Kids, secured and implemented grant monies to assist homeless families.  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 11, 2018        http://www.galloping-gertie.com/

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.
Our incoming President Lou Melendez attended a weekend training conference with the theme of "Be The Inspiration".  He was thrilled to meet again former Rotary International President Rick King.  It was special because Rick King was the person who presented Lou with his first Paul Harris award as a non-Rotarian at the time.
 
 
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.
