Remember: Follow Us; Like Us; and Share Us on Facebook…. Port Townsend Sunrise Rotary

This week in Rotary October 22-28


October’s Rotary Theme for the month of October is:

Economic & Community Development Month; Taking our talents beyond the workplace


What’s on the calendar this week?



I will be out of town this week for business, but never fear…Katy will be here! 


Our program this week is Dr. John Barrett with an update on his most recent trip to Africa. Should be a great time, sorry I will miss it. Come All, bring a friend and support him. 


October 14th is also World Polio Day. We are just this close to getting rid of this thing and we can’t let up know so bring some extra cash and drop it into the End Polio box that is by the cash register. We owe it to the world so dig deep and give from your heart. Post on your Facebook pages about how Rotary is ending Polio. Add a photo or a story or even a video link like this one:
