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.

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.

Grant survey shows solid support for new model
More than 6,000 Rotary members in 154 countries reported on their experiences with the new grant model as part of an evaluation during the 2015-16 Rotary year.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
