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!

Our club is volunteering at Emergency Food Network's Mother Earth Farm on July 14th from 9 am until 12 pm. We'll be doing gardening work like weed removal, compost spreading, and/or seeding crops. We'll also have a potluck picnic on the farm after our shift. All ages are welcome, so feel free to bring family/friends! Up to 25 people can be accommodated. Click here to sign up.

As my Rotary year comes to a close I am so thankful for the memories we have made in our second year of being the Passport Club. I appreciate all our members support and camaraderie. 

To go out with some fun I hope everyone can join me for the "outgoing party!".  As I started my year stating that Rotary family is important to me I am holding true to that with this last shin dig with a family friendly bowling night. 
 
When: June 27th, 2018 (our social meeting day)
Time:  6:00 - 8:00pm
Cost: $15.00 pp to bowl. Include shoes. Payable to the club.
Come hang out, bowl if you wish, eat, drink and have fun. All are welcome.

Rotary Fellowships are international groups that share a common passion. Being part of a fellowship is a fun way to make friends around the world, explore a hobby or profession, and enhance your Rotary experience.  Click here to learn more about RI Fellowships and to see a full list of current fellowships. 
One fellowship is the International Fellowship of Rotarian Musicians (IFRM).  The IFRM's mission statement is "is to promote Rotary fellowship by encouraging clubs to sing,to organize musical activities for performance at all levels of Rotary functions, and to support community music organizations and school music programs." The IFRM allows Rotarians to connect and engage with one another and provide service to those in need around the world through their passion for music. 
One way that anyone can help support the IFRM is through the donation of needed items such as: 
  • Sheet music, musical scores, recorded music (CDs and tapes)
  • New and/or used musical instruments, especially wind instruments, guitars, and drum sets
If you have any sheet music that you would like to donate, contact Karyn Siegrist, she will be collecting the donated sheet music and mailing it to the IFRM.
 
Check out our Facebook page though out the month of June as we highlight other Rotary Fellowships.

A huge thank you to our Nova Scotia friends for their Friendship Exchange presentation during our meeting on May 23rd.  It was great to hear about what the clubs in their district are doing and learn
more about how the exchange works. 
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.
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.

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.

Happy shopping, saving, and supporting Rotary!
