September is Basic Education and Literacy Month. Our Port Orchard Rotary group has been very active in encouraging Literacy. Let me share some of these with you.
We have John Carlson and his wife, Ruth that started a summer class teaching English and Spanish to families that would like to know more about the language. Rotarians volunteered to help in the classroom as well. Bob Cairns, with the help of Jon Gailey and their wife’s collect thousands of books to send Internationally. Mark and RoseMarie Timmerman joined in to make sure kids had school supplies on the first day of school. The Principal’s and educators in our club are working hard to make sure our kids are getting the best education they can possibly have. This last year, we gave thousands of dollars towards Scholarships.
There are so many things are group is doing to educate our students as well as ourselves. Rotary gives us the opportunity to learn, to go outside of the box or comfort zone, to better ourselves and others.
Keep learning...
