Ninth-grader Grant Baker at Crosspoint Academy (pictured on right) took on the challenge of designing the 2016 Duck Race design for the t-shirts that Rotarians and sponsors wear to raise awareness about the event throughout the community. Of all 14 entries, his was favored among Rotarians, and the design was selected for printing on this year’s t-shirts.
On June 2, Rotarian Barbara Beagle (on left) presented Grant with the very first 2016 Duck Race t-shirt featuring his design. He also received a $100 check for his hard work and creativity. Crosspoint Academy High School technology teacher Molly Mason (pictured center) was presented with a framed design and brass plate commemorating the competition winner, along with thanks for her support of this project.
Can you put a dollar value on saving a life? No, but Silverdale Rotary Duck Race proceeds will help save lives by providing $1,500 in Duck Bucks to the Harrison Foundation for their ongoing Resuscitation Quality Improvement (RQI) Program.
The funds will go to purchase a realistic eSimulation mannequin and mobile Simulation Station to help healthcare providers retain life-saving CPR skills. Pictured below is Rotarian Debi Brooks-Givens presenting the $1,500 check to Kari Driskell, Donor Relations Manager of the Harrison Foundation.

Island Lake Park has a 9/11 memorial that most locals don't even know about, the members reported. There is a unique rock garden where visitors can reflect and place a rock in a stone cylinder. Instead, it is often filled with trash, and the surrounding areas are often trashed with litter. Interact members hope to clean up the area in four different stages, to include cutting back brush, cleaning the benches, scrubbing the headstone and rock garden, and more. The students plan to speak with the county parks department officials to see what can be done on the Interact Club's behalf, and they asked for Rotarians' help and suggestions once all is approved.
