Mary Clifton, Clallam County Human Services serving those with disabilities, will share information about services and about how participants contribute to the community and local economy through work.  Mary will also share a short video clip from local employers as to the benefit of tapping into this often overlooked applicant pool and what workers with disabilities bring to their businesses.   The Clallam County website lists the following:  
Developmental Disabilities Advisory Committee

Mission Statement

  • To work to enhance inclusive choices for individuals with developmental disabilities,
  • To communicate with and make recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners, and
  • To achieve full integration, inclusion, equality and acceptance of individuals with developmental disabilities leading to productive participation in the community.
 

 
 
The global support from the Rotary International network is the cornerstone upon which ShelterBox is built.

In April 2000, the Rotary Club of Helston-Lizard in Cornwall, England adopted ShelterBox as its millennium project. Little did they know that it would become the largest Rotary club project in the world, responding to disasters and conflict across the globe and providing emergency shelter to over one million people.

Rotary has been instrumental in our growth and Rotarians are the cement that binds us together. Since ShelterBox was founded, we have grown from one club’s adopted project to Rotary International’s only Project Partner in disaster relief. 

The global Rotary network has been key in our international growth. At present, all ShelterBox affiliates have been set up by Rotarians or Rotaractors and the growth has been phenomenal.
 

In 2012, ShelterBox became Rotary International's first Project Partner and remians the only disaster relief charity. 

This agreement enables both organizations to collaborate more closely to bring relief and temporary shelter to survivors of disasters worldwide. The project partnership has built on both organization's strengths in responding to disasters all over the world. 

The benefits to both ShelterBox and Rotary are enormous. We receive incredible support from Rotary and, equally, we are acting as a catalyst in encouraging more people the world over to become involved with their local Rotary Club. ShelterBox can provide support as a club's international project via speakers and supplemental material. Plus, ShelterBox offers multiple youth opportunites for culture exchange and leadership training. (See panel at right for more info)


Rotary International's logistical support on ShelterBox deployments is just as critical as the generous financial support we receive from Rotarians and Clubs worldwide.

The fundraising efforts by Rotarians make up a significant proportion of donations received by ShelterBox. Alongside this, Rotary Clubs provide invaluable support to our field operations.

Rotarians will often be the people who ensure our aid can be delivered into a country by acting as consignees. These essential acts mean we can deliver aid to people in need as quickly as possible. 

More often than not, it will be Rotarians who are the first point of contact for the SRT members when they arrive in a country that has been devastated by a disaster. They provide everything from logistical support, translators, local knowledge, to a bed to sleep in.

Thanks to the support and generosity of Rotary International, ShelterBox is able to deliver dignity and hope to families in need around the world.

Fellow Rotarians - Please join us for this very special meeting.  Clearly from his website, Bob Ferguson is a friend of Rotary.  
 
Bob Ferguson is Washington's 18th Attorney General. As the state's chief legal officer, he directs 500 attorneys and 600 professional staff providing legal services to state agencies, Governor and Legislature.
General Ferguson’s ongoing priorities are:
  • Protecting consumers and seniors against fraud by cracking down on powerful interests that don’t play by the rules;
  • Keeping communities safer by supporting law enforcement;
  • Protecting our environment; and
  • Standing up for our veterans by advocating for service men and women and their families.
Bob received his J.D. from New York University School of Law in 1995. He earned a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Washington, where he was student body president. Bob began his legal career in Spokane where he served as a law clerk for Chief Judge W. Fremming Nielsen of the Federal District Court for Eastern Washington. He then clerked for Judge Myron Bright of the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in the Midwest. Ferguson returned to Seattle and joined Preston, Gates, and Ellis (now K&L Gates), one of Washington's leading law firms.
In 2003, Bob was elected to the King County Council. In 2005, after the council was reduced from 13 to nine and Bob's district was eliminated, he was re-elected. He was unopposed in 2009.
Bob is a fourth-generation Washingtonian. His family homesteaded on the beautiful Skagit River, which may explain why Bob is such an enthusiastic mountain climber, backpacker, and birder. He has hiked hundreds of miles of Washington trails and climbed many of the state's highest peaks.
Bob is an internationally-rated chess master. His games have appeared in local, national and international chess publications. Bob has twice won the Washington State Chess Championship.
Bob, his wife Colleen and their 7-year-old twins, Jack and Katie, reside in the Maple Leaf neighborhood of North Seattle.
