Co-President Jennifer Strong announced the Rotarians of the Month for April and May:
 
April - Ashley Oaksmith.  Ashley is a quiet example of an amazing Rotarian. She was nominated as a 20 under 40 recipient in recognition of her hard work in the community and her success as our Silverdale Librarian. Ashley always shares her great ideas and willingly took on the role of Club Admin Chair for the Rotary year 2021-22.  Thank you for all you do Ashley!
 
May - Bob Cassis.  Bob Cassis’s organization of the Veteran’s Memorial Park clean up in May is so appreciated!
Bob has been heading up the maintenance efforts and flag replacements as well as the ceremonies for many years. The Park is a shining example (pun intended) of one of the many ways we give back to the community. Thank you for all you do Bob!
 
President Elect Cathy Bisaillon announced Rotarians of the Month for July and August:
 
 July - Frank Guthrie.  Frank is Rotarian of the Month for July for being The DuckFather. From the moment the giant inflatable ducks left the nest, until their safe return, Frank knew where they were and what they needed to stay clean and in good repair.
     
The ducks help us recruit and steward sponsors and sell Duck Race tickets. Thank you, Frank, for tending to the flock!
 
August - Rich Arper.  Rich Arper came through in multiple ways in August. He brought his beautiful vintage automobile to the Duck Race Gala on August 6th to add to the themed fun, and he spent the last Saturday of the month clearing trails at the Port Gamble multi-club work party. Rich is definitely Rotarian of the Month for August!
Frank received a gift card to Sierra Trading Post, as he loves to hike. Rich received a gift card to Westbay Auto Parts, for obvious reasons. Both received a Rotarian of the Month lapel pin.
