Welcome to the Rotary Passport Club of Pierce County

The Passport Club of Pierce County is a new type of Rotary club designed to be flexible, affordable and accessible. We seek to serve the community with like-minded leaders, create friendships, and make business connections. Unlike traditional Rotary Clubs that meet weekly, the Passport club provides opportunities each month to have a club meeting, to volunteer, to socialize with one another and other area Rotarians, and to learn about our local and global community. Join us!
 
 
 
Club and District News
Our Rotary club has worked with Catholic Community Services to adopt a family of nine this holiday season - two parents with seven children who range between 3 and 14 years old. Each family member's wish list, their age, clothing sizes, and favorite color are available in ClubRunner.
 
There are still many more wonderful gifts that our club can buy to help make this family's Christmas merrier! Click Sign Up to view the wish lists and sign up to bring a gift. If you see an asterisk (*) by an item, then that person specifically requested it. (For example: 7-year-old Thomas specifically asked for a coat, pajamas, Legos, and various other toys.)
 
Please bring the gifts to tomorrow's social or the December 12th meeting. (If you are in the Olympia or South Hill area, I am also happy to meet you somewhere to pick up a gift if you can't make it to either meeting!) At the end of the December 12th meeting, we will wrap the gifts together and take a fun club photo with the gifts! All gifts will be dropped off to Catholic Community Services during the week of December 17th.
On September 26th, our club began building another 8 Little Free Libraries. We had lots of fun gluing and nailing all the pieces of the libraries together! We'll be spackling and painting them on Saturday, November 17th from 4 pm - 6 pm at York Enterprises.

World Polio Day was established by Rotary International over a decade ago to commemorate the birth of Jonas Salk, who led the first team to develop a vaccine against poliomyelitis. Use of this inactivated polio virus vaccine and subsequent widespread use of the oral polio virus, developed by Albert Sabin, led to the establishment of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) in 1988. As of 2013, GPEI had reduced polio worldwide by 99%.

 

Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease. There is no cure, but there are safe and effective vaccines. Polio can be prevented through immunization. Polio vaccine, given multiple times, almost always protects a child for life. The strategy to eradicate polio is therefore based on preventing infection by immunizing every child until transmission stops and the world is polio-free.                                                                    –World Health Organization

The new Fiscal Year for Rotary is almost here, which means it is invoice time.  The invoices for membership dues will be sent out shortly.  Check your email in the next few days.
If you or your business have something that you would like to share with the club, let us know and we can post it here.  Send any announcements to passportrotary@gmail.com.  If you have a photo to include, please send as a jpg. 
 

 
 
Save on tickets to the movies, sporting events, online and in person shopping, hotels, and much more.
Explore Rotary Global Rewards to find discounts and special offers, along with opportunities to give back to Rotary while doing your online shopping. 
 
Just a few of the offers that I found when doing a quick glance down the list included Office Depot (online or in person, discount off of purchase), discounted movie tickets (AMC, Regal, and Cinemark are included), and much more. 
 
The site also allows for members to post their own offerings.  Does your business have a product that you would like to offer to other Rotarians?  Consider making it available to the Rotary family.
 
In addition to the site, there is also an app for the Rotary Global Rewards, available for both Apple and Android, just search for Rotary Global Rewards.
 
To view the discounts and ways you can help support Rotary, log into your RI account and select the Rotary Global Rewards. 
 
Happy shopping, saving, and supporting Rotary!
