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!
