Community Service Chair, Steve Burton (on right), was proud to introduce us to Jonathon Thomas (on left), better known as "Capt. JT," at our March 1 meeting. As Board Chair of the Kitsap Maritime Heritage Foundation, the captain is passionate about the organization’s mission – to help people of all ages and abilities have a hands-on nautical experience.
 
“Fiddlers Dream is an education boat, a floating classroom,” he shared. Rebuilding the steering mechanism of the schooner is one of the most expensive components of the current renovation project. The Silverdale Rotary Club awarded $3,000 to the foundation which will be matched with other donor funds to get Fiddlers Dream’s steering system back on track.
