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/

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.
Sept. 4 meeting will be at our new location of Penrose Harbor at Heron's Key located at 4340 Borgen Blvd, Gig Harbor.  We are excited to meet at this beautiful new building.  Park in upper visitor parking (left after entering, follow sign to Penrose Harbor.  Meeting room is on the 2nd floor).
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.
 
Our next Galloping Gertie will be Aug. 11, 2018.   http://www.galloping-gertie.com/event-info/
