Poulsbo-North Kitsap Rotary Club
"Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island and the Rotary Club of Silverdale, the Poulsbo-North Kitsap Rotary Club was chartered by Rotary International on November 11, 1976 with 25 original members. The Charter Night celebration was held at the Poplars Restaurant in Silverdale, where our club became one of 57 clubs in what was then Rotary District 502. Our first fundraiser was an Easter Pancake Breakfast. Our first projects consisted of picnic tables for public parks in Poulsbo, Kingston, and at Buck Lake in Hansville, and bookshelves for the Martha and Mary Nursing Home in Poulsbo.
Club weekly breakfast meetings at the Sons of Norway in Poulsbo draw our members together and inform them about issues and events in our community through weekly programs, usually with guest speakers from the community. Club meetings promote membership and camaraderie. Sustaining our membership is one of the club’s most important functions."
Morrow Manor is the regions first “longer” term shelter which allows those affected by domestic violence a place to call home for up to 6 years. Morrow Manor’s goals are to provide safe, supportive, long-term affordable housing to help empower victims of domestic violence by offering them a place to call home. A gift to Morrow Manor will positively impact the survivors of domestic violent for years to come and allow them a safe and secure place to live while they rebuild their lives.
