Well, it's March and time for DLTA.  As you know, this year it will be held in Centralia Washington on March 27-28.  If you haven't ventured to Centralia and Chehalis, this is a great opportunity to get to know the area.  The attached guide contains information about the DLTA, local points of interest and lodging information.  I hope you find it useful.
 
I encourage you to register soon and make your reservations.  They're going fast.  To register for the conference go to rotary5020.org  See you in Centralia.

Thank you for making Rotary a part of your life,

Kick off your 2016 volunteering by helping us keep South Kitsap beautiful.  March 19th is our next road clean up along Highway 16.  We get started at 10:00 am from the Columbia Bank parking lot.  This program usually takes less than 2 hours so drop in, share fellowship and see who can get the "best find" for the day.
 
Hope to see you there!

To Friends of The Coffee Oasis-Port Orchard:
Great News!!
We have signed a lease on the 807A Bay Street “Ale House” building in downtown Port Orchard as the new location of The Coffee Oasis in Port Orchard!
Our lease begins May 1, 2013 with four months allotted for the remodel. Our ambitious goal will be to be operational by the end of July. That means we have a lot to accomplish by then!
As you can see from the attached “Coffee Oasis-Port Orchard Expansion Plan”, the crucial needs to accomplish this project in good time are funds, equipment and volunteers.
Our fundraising goal by August 2013 is…$97,000. So far…almost $40,000 has been raised!!
Our equipment needs are attached and, if donated, would significantly reduce the funds needed to be raised. Exact equipment types and models needed can be given upon request.
Our volunteer needs are also listed in the attached “Plan”. The timely success of the remodel obviously depends hugely on volunteer labor. There will be regular work parties established as well as the opportunity for particular aspects of the project to be “owned” by specific individuals.
Thank you so much for helping The Coffee Oasis-Port Orchard become a reality!

 

If you have any questions, would like to donate funds or equipment, or like to volunteer please contact:

Once again Rotario has gone and shown us why he is not only an invaluable member of our club but also to the entire International Organization. Introducing the Rotario approved (and funded) Penny Incentive Program. 

One day Rotario asked himself…”what would make me want to bring in more members to Rotary?” Then Rotario realized the thought of a lifetime: The magical penny!!! Rotario’s latest innovation is specially designed to help your club or organization get more members! Rotario’s new “Penny Incentive System” was specially designed with a built in human incentive: Bright shiny Lincoln pennies. Bring in a member-Get a shiny new penny! Bring in two members-get two shiny pennies. Bring in three-three pennies. You get the point! Become rich bringing in new members to your organization!!!!!!!

Rotarians have been finding a number of ways to help victims of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan that killed thousands and left hundreds of thousands more homeless.  

By Ryan Hyland and Dan Nixon 
Rotary International News -- 25 March 2011 

 

 
 
 
From DG Alex in regards to the Haiti earthquake:  In checking the RI Website there is a DAF set up with TRF and you can find a link to information about it on both www.rotary.org and www.7020.org.  They have established a Rotary NGO in Haiti and have Rotarians on the ground to assure that money and supplies are used as intended.

Rotary district collecting relief funds for Louisiana flood victims
Rotary clubs of District 6200 are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana, USA, earlier this month. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. Donate to District 6200 disaster relief fund.
Hall of Fame singer Donovan becomes a Rotary polio ambassador
Legendary singer and polio survivor Donovan Leitch, better known simply as Donovan, has joined Rotary in its fight to eradicate the paralyzing disease that afflicted him during much of his childhood. Donovan contracted polio at age three in Glasgow, Scotland. The disease weakened his right leg and left it thinner and shorter than the other. Confined to his bed for much of his childhood, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer said his father would read him poetry. In a recent interview with the Daily Express, Donovan said that listening to poetry piqued his interest in creative writing. “If I...
World Polio Day toolkit available — start planning now
Rotary's fourth World Polio Day celebration, on 24 October, will highlight extraordinary progress in the eradication campaign and emphasize the work that remains before we wipe out the virus for good. With the number of new cases worldwide nearly halved from this time last year, we have the opportunity to rally our resources and see the last case of polio this year. Health officials and Rotary's celebrity polio ambassadors will head to Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for the event, the first to be held at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It will be streamed live and then will...
Young member uses leadership positions to promote diversity, inclusion
The way Rotary member Todd Jenkins puts it, he's the first generation in his family "to do everything": first to go to college, first to fly on a plane, first to visit another country, and the first to live across state lines. Jenkins, 28, grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. His family worked hard just to make ends meet. So travel and college seemed out of reach. The eldest of ten children, Jenkins says his goal was to break out of the family status quo and set a positive example for his siblings. He credits his mother with helping him avoid falling into the...
Rotary recommits to ending polio in Nigeria
The World Health Organization has confirmed two cases of wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) in Nigeria, the first cases in the country since July 2014. After passing a year without a case of the wild poliovirus, Nigeria was removed from the list of polio-endemic countries in September 2015. These cases – from two local government areas of Borno state – occurred in July 2016. The Government of Nigeria – in partnership with the Global Polio Eradication Initiative – will take immediate steps to respond quickly to the outbreak to prevent further spread of the disease. This response will include...
