Welcome to the Port Townsend Rotary website. We hope that you will learn a little more about who we are, what we do, and what makes our club special.
We invite you to visit us at a Tuesday noon meeting at the Fort Worden Commons. You’ll meet an eclectic and friendly mix of interesting people, enjoy a stimulating program and a tasty buffet lunch. Perhaps you’ll consider finding more about what makes Rotary – and Rotarians – such a vital force in their communities and the wider world.
Rotarians are dedicated to making a difference at home through community service of many kinds, from the mundane (roadside litter cleanup) to the significant (major grants to community organizations). Just as important, Rotary International is an engine of hope globally with grants and volunteer assistance for life-changing projects all over the world.
Service Above Self is the Rotary motto. Come visit us to see how we put these words into action.
For many years our Rotary club supported the Mufindi Children's Village in Tanzania.
There are currently 70 orphaned and vulnerable children living there. Our last grant of $5,000 was in 2015-16 for medical, educational, and basic needs, maintenance and sewing school costs. Through the years we funded the start of the milk supplement program for HIV babies, the training of community health workers, two aids for the medical clinic,the completion of the preschool building and many other small projects. The video shows the results.
I think we can be proud of our efforts to make life so much better for all the people in the Mufindi area.
