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!!!!!!!

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.

Practicing peace
Nations around the world will observe the International Day of Peace on 21 September, a date designated by the United Nations in 2001 as "a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence."

Each year, the program prepares up to 100 fellows to work for peace through a two-year master's degree program or a three-month professional certificate program at university partners worldwide. Today, nearly 1,000 peace centers alumni are applying their skills — negotiating peace in conflict...

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.
