Looking forward to a wonderful year continuing to give to the community of Puyallup and around the world. Our mission is to consistently rejuvenate our club with new ideas and remaining change agents. Last year President Karissa focused on creating a sustainable program that would benefit the youth community. Thus the YAP was born ! (Youth Advocacy Project)
For the year of 2016-2017 we will focus on continuing the development of the YAP and beginning an International Project with the intent of longevity. July through September we will be hearing from International Programs available for participation. The club will determine what best fits our clubs culture.
We are always looking for new members to help lift this city with loving and supportive arms. If you are interested in being a part of something powerful, please contact us or come visit during one of our weekly lunch meetings. We would love to buy you lunch and share with you what you can give to Rotary and more important what you can get out of Rotary.
Come Join Us!

I'm excited to share with you a program called the Youth Advocacy Project (YAP).
YAP was developed in last year by Karissa Thompson, our current president. Karissa wanted to find a way to connect community members and local non-profits to the needs in the school district. She has formed a roundtable that meets quarterly to discuss and shine light on the needs of our youth. As a group they work together to find solutions for each need. We are making an effort to build resources and unite many talented people who are determined to make a difference.
