The Results are in for the 7th Annual Running of the Balls

The 2019 Running of the Balls is now racing history and the results are in. Ball number 5262, a pre-race long shot, against the odds, won the coveted Port Townsend Sunrise Rotary Youth Projects Trophy. Coming in first in a field of nearly 2000 competitors it brought home a purse of $2000 to its owners, the Kiwanis Club of Port Townsend. The Kiwanis Club sponsored 100 balls on race day. The Place position and second prize of $500 was won by ball number 1143, owned by Kelly O'Connell. The Show ball, number 1609, owned and trained by Chris Ashcraft paid $250.
The Port Townsend Sunrise Rotary wished to thank all of our sponsors for their generous support. The proceeds of this event will help us continue our works in support of the youth of Jefferson County and the world (We sponsor Rotary Exchange students each year. One outgoing PTH student and one incoming student from abroad). We also provide a hardbound full-color dictionary to every third-grade student in Jefferson County. Without the generous support of our sponsors, these projects would not be possible. Thank you all again and see you next year

Join a RAG today and "Do Good in the World"!

President Jayne, in her weekly newsletter (see above) writes of Rotary Action Groups or RAGs for short. An example of such a RAGs is RAGAS, group that has Rotarians joined in a fight to stop a worldwide epidemic. Not an epidemic against a minute virus but one also attacking children. Unlike the virus that causes Polio, it is not in decline. This one seems to be in the ascendency. It is a battle against Human Trafficking of millions of people, including millions of children and it is still prevalent in many parts of the world. But, you say, that is something happening far away. Not since the Civil War has it been known in the United States. And, you would be wrong! It is happening here, today including right here in the Pacific Northwest. Perhaps even in Jefferson County, there are children and adults caught in the sex trade and domestic labor market. It is a hidden evil that may be occurring in our very own neighborhoods. To find out more about this, visit the RAGAS Facebook page at (Rotarians Action Group Against Slavery). Our club for more than one year has helped in the battle against child slavery by supporting El Nid, an orphanage in the Congo. PT Sunrise Rotary is paying the wages of the house mother who cares for girls rescued from the mean streets of Kinshasa. There are hundreds of other RAGs sanctioned by Rotary International. I urge you to find one that fits your interest and join them in "Doing Good in the World". It's what you joined Rotary for, remember?
For a list of RAGs that might be the perfect fit for your interests follow this link to the Join A Rotarian Action Group page on the Rotary International website.
