Welcome to the Port Townsend Rotary. We hope that the information you find here
will be of interest and that you will consider contacting one of our members to learn
more about what we do in our community – not only in eastern Jefferson County, but
also the larger world community that we all share.
Rotarians are a diverse community minded group who share a common motivation – SERVICE
ABOVE SELF. Rotary truly walks the talk on this. Through our fundraising efforts
we support many local non-profit organizations, provide scholarships to Port Townsend
High School graduating seniors, and participate in projects that improve the quality
of life in foreign countries where so much help is needed. We sponsor several youth
programs in the local high school - the international youth exchange program and
the InterAct Club, both which promote leadership, community service and international
This year the mission of Rotary International is “Peace through Service.” In addition
to serving this lofty ideal, one underlying thread is a part of everything we do
– having fun. While our objectives address very serious needs in the community,

If you wish to learn more about our projects feel free to contact me or another member.
Be my guest at a meeting to see what we are all about. We meet every Tuesday at
12:15 in the Northwest Maritime Center, upstairs.

the favorite Cupcake Walk game. Thanks to Judge Jill for taking the photos, and Thank
