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

Join us during our meeting on May 23rd as we hear from both inbound and outbound Rotary International's Friendship Exchange participant and have the opportunity to learn more about the program.  During this Rotary year our district paired with District 780 , located in the Nova Scotia, Canada.  In October 2017 twelve members of District 5020 spent three weeks visiting District 780 and their members are now here visiting ours.  A few of their members will talk to us about themselves, their District and their home.   This will be a great informal chance to talk with inbound and outbound couples that have participated in the exchanges and find out more about the program. 

Friendship Exchange participants travel as individuals, couples, families, or groups, and may include Rotary members and nonmembers. Prospective exchange teams communicate in advance to decide on the purpose, format, timing, logistics, and duration of each visit.

Exchanges offer unique chances for cultural immersion and interchange. They might include opportunities for professionals, including young professionals, to build global understanding and boost vocational and leadership skills. They can provide cultural experiences, vocational activities, fellowship, and much more.

The meeting will be at Johnny's Dock - 1900 E D St, Tacoma, WA 98421 at 6PM

(YES, JOHNNY'S IS OPEN.  There was a change in ownership, however they are not closed. )

 

The Rotary Foundation Committee would like to remind members about the 2 for 1 offer.  Any member making a donation before June 30th to The Rotary Foundation for at least $100 will receive 100 matching points towards a Paul Harris Fellowship.  Donations may be turned into Nita Sell at the May 23rd meeting or via credit/debit on the Foundation's webs site.  If making a donation on the website, please make sure to let Nita know once you have made the donation in order to receive your 100 matching points.  If you are not able to make it to the meeting on the 23rd and would like to mail a check to the club for us to process, it can be mailed to: PO Box 111674, Tacoma, WA 98411.
Passport Club of Pierce County had quite a few members at DTA and the District Conference Celebration Dinner.  As a first time attendee, PCPC member Megan Schoor had a great time, "DTC was a great opportunity to hear inspiring speakers, network with other Rotarians (including Rotaractors!) in our district, and exchange ideas about service projects that are both easy to coordinate and helpful to our community."  Her experience was echoed by all members attending. 
 
The Project and Volunteer Committee has some great opportunities lines up for this summer.  Contact Megan Schoor for more details.
  • June 2nd - Hope Sparks Rummage Sale: Donate items and/or volunteer.
  • June 8th - Boys and Girls Club event from 3:30pm - 7pm: run booth and/or donate food for dinner at family night.

The 8th and I Neighbors' Park was interested in installing a Little Free Library, and the Rotary Passport Club of Pierce County was happy to provide them with one. 

 

The group has been collecting books in anticipation of their new LFL and eager to stock the library once installed.

 

The whole community is extremly excited to have the a LFL, especially the kids.

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.
