And the Winners Are

The 2018 running of the balls has been run and the winners are in. Over two thousand balls braved the ruts, dents, divots, and dings of Monroe street minutes before the start of the Grand Parade. After 3 breathtaking minutes, the winners crossed the finish line in near record time. The fastest ball and first to enter the Winner's Circle was 4087, sponsored by Matt Wherfell of Seattle and winner of the $2000 first prize. The second ball in the Winner's Circle was ball number 4357, sponsored by James Island, winner of $500, soon followed a second later by the third place ball, number 3464 and winner of $250 sponsored by Phil Briscoe.
Thanks go to all who supported the Port Townsend Sunrise Rotary Club in its fundraising effort to continue our youth projects including our Youth Exchange program helping incoming students from around the world and sending a Port Townsend High School student to a foreign land each year. Your help also allows our club to present a hardbound, full-color dictionary to every 3rd-grade student in Jefferson County each year. All the funds raised go to these projects and others serving young people. Without your generous help, these programs would not be possible. Thank you, so much.
 
 
JUST ONE OF THE MANY ROTARY PROGRAMS
AND/OR EVENTS WILL BE SHOWCASED HERE.
Sometimes helping others can be very rewarding but also hard work and sometimes raising money can just be the "fun of the Irish".  Sunrise Rotary's Spring fundraiser is called Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Press the read more button below to see how much fun we can have while raising money to serve others.

Sunrise Rotary Helps Local Charity

Preparing dictionaries for distributionYou see us at fund raisers selling hot dogs and tickets for Running of the Balls, you come to our homes for dinner, participate in our golf tournament and much more.  After we raise the money doing those work projects, then we seek ways to give it all away.  Some of it goes to international projects, like the eradication of polio and bringing clean water and sanitation facilities to third world countries.  Perhaps those kinds of charitable giving is that for which Rotary is best known.  However, our club makes sure that the majority of our donations go to local organizations, right here in Port Townsend and Jefferson county.  In the past we have funded programs like providing a free, hard bound, full color, illustrated dictionary for every third grade student in the county(photo at left shows books being readied for distribution).   ...
 
 

A Four dollar stove is life changing

Nearly anyone can have children. It is usually pretty easy. Some, if they can’t do it the easy way or if they just love kids so much, they open their homes to children who will become theirs.  Those are special people!  Then there are those that go even farther to adopt children from places and cultures far away.  Those, one might argue are even more special and there will be a special place awaiting them in heaven.  But what superlatives can be used to describe folks who adopt grandmothers and their charges from a slowly healing, war torn nation filled with orphaned children being raised by the “Grandmothers”? That describes John and Toni Jordan, Rotarians from Victoria, Canada.  John has visited our club on at least two occasions to tell of his work in Rwanda and the desperate need that remains after the Genocide ...
 
 
 
The three East Jefferson county Rotary clubs have been busy, working together and living the dream of Service Above Self.
