Fantasy Football for The Rotary Foundation - Wrap Up
Ron and Peggy Templeton are the Champions of Fantasy Football 2018! This year started with some unique drafting techniques and ended with Fantasy player injuries.  All year was an exciting roller coaster ride.  Thank you to every one that participated. It helped raise $2,000 for The Rotary Foundation!
Next year, sometime before the draft, I will give a small training session about Fantasy Football draft theory.   Thanks again to everyone that participated. Congratulations Ron and Peggy!
Community Announcements
Emergency Preparedness - from the CKFR Fire Chief John Oliver.  Make sure to ventilate your portable generator properly during this cold season if you lose power. Too many people have been hurt or lost their lives due to carbon monoxide poisoning, caused by lack of ventilation. Moreover, emergency rations should last seven days, instead of the three days that it had been. The last major storm knocked out power for almost three days in some parts of Kitsap, therefore seven days of rations is more appropriate for emergencies.
CKSD News from Superintendent David McVicker: On January 24th Olympic High School is having a grand opening at 6:30 pm. Furthermore, CKHS will be opening spring break 2019.

Library News from Ashley Oaksmith. Book worms unite, by fall of 2020 the Silverdale Library will be in their new location at the Central Kitsap High School.


Project Beauty Beast - January 3 Program
Clink on this link for a short video of Elaine Turso telling about her project:
The Rotary presentation on January 3 was one of pain, empowerment, and thriving through adversity. Our presenter was Elaine Turso of Elaine Turso Photography. Ms. Turso leads Project Beauty Beast here in Kitsap County. Her work focuses on shedding light on the bullying, body shaming, self harm, and suicide attempts that plague our community.
She works with teens in our community to show through photography the issues that ravage their lives, and how to triumph from the pain they suffer through. Her work, information on Project Beauty Beast, and helpful links can be found online at

Duck Bucks  Granted for Make Music Day
What could be better than spending June 21, the longest day of the year, experiencing live music everywhere in Kitsap County for free? The West Sound Art and Music Association (WSAMA) is making this happen by adding our area to the list of more than 800 cities worldwide hosting Make Music Day on June 21.
Jill Hudson-Giddings (President, WSAMA) and Jim Goettler (Director, Make Music Day – Kitsap) informed us that there will be concerts on streets, sidewalks, parks – pretty much anywhere musicians of all types can set up and play. Corporate partners will give away harmonicas and songbooks, all in the spirit of spreading the love of making music.
