That is this year’s mission statement for Rotary International. The Port Townsend
Rotary club knows this to be a fact. Rotarians are a diverse community minded group
who share a common motivation –
SERVICE ABOVE SELF.
Rotary truly walks the talk on this.
Through our fundraising efforts we support many local non-profit organizations, provide
scholarships to Port Townsend High School graduating seniors, and participate in
projects that improve the quality of life in foreign countries where so much help
is needed. We sponsor several youth programs in the local high school - the international
youth exchange program and the InterAct Club, both of which promote leadership, community
service and international goodwill. If you wish to learn more about our projects
explore this website, and feel free to contact me or another officer or board member.
While our objectives address very serious needs in the community and the world, we
try to involve an element of fun and humor throughout it all. Be my guest at a meeting
to see what we are all about. We meet every Tuesday at Noon in the Northwest Maritime
Rotary teens of Port Townsend High School's InterAct Club provided fun and games
for children in the old City hall jail during the community's First Night celebration
on New Year's Eve. The students not only held organizational meetings and delayed
their own New Year's Eve fun to provide this service, they baked special prizes for
the favorite Cupcake Walk game. Thanks to Judge Jill for taking the photos, and Thank
