Welcome to Fellowship Month
June---an appropriate time to pause and reflect upon this past Rotary year as we celebrate our successes, install our new Rotary boards, and anticipate the potential of our incoming theme:  Rotary Connects the World!  We look forward to hearing about Leslie’s endeavors in Hamburg and all the connections she has made worldwide and upon Bob’s return from Africa, his networks forged.
In the fabric of a Rotary year we weave many memorable stories including Port Orchard Cares and local and global service projects completed, meetings held, and Spotlight on a Member and Rotarian moments shared.   As many of us know the reasons why Rotarians join the family of Rotary is to serve, yet it is the sense of fellowship and camaraderie that emerges as a primary reason Rotarians remain in Rotary. Take a moment to consider how your experience has been enriched by people you have met. Sometimes it is a stranger who self introduces when seeing your Rotary pin or earrings, sometimes it is getting to know another club member as you work side by side, or sometimes it is sitting in a District Assembly classroom learning more about the leadership role you are about to take on.   Whether a casual conversation before a regular meeting, a club social that brings together family and friends, or a warm sense of welcome while connecting with a club member…. our Rotary friendships are forged and strengthened.   We are enriched by our experiences and the people with whom they are shared.   It is these connections that inspire us and often motivate us to contribute time, energy, and resources to making this the world we hope it can be.
As Rotarians, as we discovered at the District Leadership training and service project partnerships, we are united member to member and club to club. Fellowship---perhaps the greatest gift we are given in return for our ‘service above self’. Thank you Rotary for creating so many moments….. memories that will stay strong for years to come!

Connects the World”.
March 12, 2019  Speaker: Penny Sapp, Lori Blankenship, Cami Lewis , KSAC

Lori Blankenship


Lori Blankenship is currently a Detective with the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office. She started my career as a law enforcement officer at the University of Washington Police Department in 1989. In 1992, I joined the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office and spent the first ten years on patrol and the last seventeen in detectives.


She is an active member with the SAIVS (Special Assault Investigative and Victim Services) a multi-disciplinary team that creates protocol for law enforcement agencies investigating sexual assaults, domestic violence and vulnerable adult crimes. SAIVS also is a co-host for Camp Rise where children who have been physically or sexually abused have a safe place to go and enjoy indoor and outdoor activities. 


In October 2016 she joined the board at KSAC (Kitsap Sexual Assault Center) and in May 2017 she was elected as the President of the Board.



Penelope Sapp

Penelope joined KSAC as an Executive Board Member in December of 2017 because she strongly believes that sexual assault victims need assistance to cope with the psychological, emotional, and physical impacts that a survivor endures.

Penelope was hired at the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office in 2002 and holds the rank of lieutenant. She is also the President of the Kitsap Shop with a Cop, which hosts an annual event where over 120 underprivileged children go shopping with local law enforcement during the holiday season. In her free time, is currently working on her dissertation for her PhD in Philosophy of Public Policy Administration.


Cami Lewis

Chief Felony Deputy Prosecuting Attorney with the Kitsap County Prosecutor’s Office.  She has been with the office for almost 19 years practicing in each of the criminal divisions we have.  Cami is also the Chair of Kitsap SAIVS (Special Assault Investigations and Victim Services).  This is the County’s multi-disciplinary team made up of law enforcement, prosecutor’s office, CPS, APS, AG’s office, KMHS, victim advocacy groups (such as the YWCA, KSAC, Scarlet Road, Navy advocacy) and Olympic College.  They are tasked with creating the County’s law enforcement protocol in investigating sexual assaults, domestic violence, crimes against children and human trafficking.  With the help of KSAC and other partner agencies, we do outreach and education and for 4 years have co-hosted Camp RISE with the Kitsap County Juvenile Department.

Mission & History

Kitsap Sexual Assault Center (KSAC) began in 1975 providing services to sexual assault victims and their non-offending family members in Kitsap County.

In 2015, therapy, support groups, advocacy, crisis intervention, personal support, information and referral services were provided to 1,041 individuals who were primary and secondary victims of sexual assault. 

KSAC provides training for school personnel and other agencies throughout Kitsap County about how to respond to sexual assault disclosures, reporting procedures and community resources.
