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. A similar trip is scheduled 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
 
 
 
At the Northwest PETS (President-Elect Training) in Seattle on Feb. 21-23, Rotary North officers Bob Anderson and Elissa Larson were pleased to meet Rotary International President Holger Knaack, from Germany. 
 
 
 
 
 
Ken Kieffer was our nominee for this year’s Star of the Year Award. On Feb. 7, 2020, he and nominees from the two other Gig Harbor Rotary clubs were honored at our annual award ceremony. 
 
 
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.
