April 3, 2021 Club Get Together at Illahee Preserve Shelter.  First time together in over a year.
 

Illahee Preserve and the Environment
The Illahee Preserve Heritage Park is located in East Bremerton. It spans more than 580 acres of preserved land and includes nearly 7 miles of trails.  The members of East Bremerton Rotary have adopted stewardship of this preserve, providing thousands of dollars of donations and hundreds of volunteer hours each year toward its maintenance and improvement.
 
This year we held a Virtual Christmas Party via Zoom.
Highlight of the party was the Gingerbread House contest. John Armstrong had the winning entry with the "Bruserville Schoolhouse.
 
 
East Bremerton Rotary donated and delivered 70 backpacks to The Coffee Oasis, YWCA and KCR Children's Fund. This was part of our Clubs Back to School effort supporting youth in our community.
2020 Christmas Angel program. This year’s program was necessarily different than years past. East Bremerton Rotary partnered with Kitsap Community Resources to provide Christmas gifts to families in need. Instead of shopping for families and providing wrapped gifts, donated items were assembled at the Bremerton Masonic Lodge and deserving parents were allowed to “shop” for gifts for their family. This enabled the parents to more closely match their family’s needs. 
Andy Graham was a gracious host for last week's "Fifth Wednesday" wine-tasting event at McCloud's. Stay tuned for our next edition of the new social event that adds a fifth fun meeting during the month for club members. 
 
Rotarians pledged $6,703 and with the $4,000 club Foundation match, the total donation for World Polio Day was $10,793. This generosity resulted in 17 new or next level Paul Harris Fellows and three first time Rotary Foundation Polio Plus donors.

EBR meets every Wednesday for Breakfast. Fifth Wednesday was conceived as a means to get together on a more social basis and perhaps learn something at the same time. On Wednesday Feb 19th we met at McClouds Grill house for a wine tasting. Andy brought a distributor Rep Amanda Landenberg and together they lead a sampling of Northwest wines. The vintners ranged from Washington and Oregon with one California wine thrown in for comparison. All the wines were excellent and we learned a lot. 
 
President Donna and her Sweetheart Auction Team did it again, and another successful fundraiser is in the books. A big thanks to all club members for helping out by making donations, volunteering your time, inviting friends and showing up to bid. From the looks of these photos, a good time was had! 
 
Thanks to everyone who came out to Gold Mountain for another great Christmas Party, and thanks as always to John Armstrong for his talent in organizing a great event. Our dessert dash raised $1,900 that will go to a good cause, John's son-in-law Jeremy Cross served as emcee, and the entertainment was provided by Mark Pearson of the Brothers Four, who attended UW with John. 
 
 
President Donna's major project for her Rotary year is now complete.
 
All fall groups of Rotarians have been working at the Stella Maris women's shelter in West Bremerton to add a storage shed that will help accommodate a need for storage space. EBR also helped stock the shed with goods they need. At last week's meeting all the members who participated were recognized, including Dick Shipley, who led most of the organization and construction, and Jill Wallen, Jon Buesch, John Armstrong, Dave White, Vic Ulsh, Kim Zook, Guy Stitt, Bill Wright, Bill Benson, Ron Muhleman, Jerry LeTexier, Sonny Loidhammer, Alijah Hawley, Eric Roberts, Howard Julien, Jack Stodden, Patty Murphy and Ken Hegvedt

The Bremerton Stella Maris Women's Shelter provides housing, food, and a safe, supportive environment to women and their children in our community who have been subject to domestic violence. EBR is helping the shelter by building a storage shed for supplies.
