On August 12th, Barb Athanas presented a $500 check to Michelle Munro, Board President of Summit Assistance Dogs. Summit Assistance selects and trains dogs specifically for persons with mobility disabilities. The selection and training process can take up to two years for each dog, during which each learns to respond to 44 commands (it was noted by one of our members that his children only understood a few commands and frequently did not respond to them!). Summit Assistance has purchased property on Whidbey Island and will be building a new facility with the hopes of raising its delivery capacity from its current 10 dogs annually to 50 dogs.

In 1974, at the age of 16, Rob Rose was a Rotary Exchange Student and spent his junior year of high school in Calcutta, India. It was a year that left a strong imprint on him. Rob saw many families who had no idea where their next meal was coming from...Rob knew then that he wanted to help others. Fast forward to today. Rob has been in Rotary over 30 years. He is a member of the Rotary Club of Bellevue and is a Club Past President and recipient of numerous Rotarian awards including Rotary International’s Service Above Self Award and our District’s Rotarian of the Year.
Rob shared with us the story of how one article in 1997 on impoverished lives of children in Nepal led him to make one phone call to volunteer to assist by using his photography skills. That one call led him to go on, now 16 trips, to Nepal focused on providing assistance to disabled children, abused women and terminal cancer patients. And, it led him to form TRIFC which raises funds to support non-profit organizations in Nepal that focus on disabled children, especially in the area of education, nutrition and medical needs.
Throughout Rob’s talk, he continued to bring up how Rotary has played a significant role in his life and in its impact on the many projects Rob has been involved with in Nepal. Rob has a wife Gina, who is also TRIFC’s Director and Secretary, and has three sons. For more information, or to see how you can assist, visit TRIFC.

The Food Pantry is stocked with food staples and provides food to people and families in need in our area. The Food Pantry is open seven days a week. In addition, the Church hosts a monthly "Dinner at the Creek" event where it provides a sit down complete hot meal to the needy in the community and sends them home with a bag of food.
