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!

Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound Youth of the Year 2021

Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound recently announced their 2021 Youth of the Year, Azalia, a senior at Clover Park High School, who will represent the organization at the State level later this month. Hear about the impact of the Boys & Girls Clubs from not only Azalia, but also Rotarian Jinnie Horan as she introduces the program and Lakewood Branch Manager Christney Kpodo who was the 2009 BGCA Pacific Region Youth of the Year and had the exciting opportunity to meet President Obama at the White House. We hope you will join us as we celebrate Azalia as she represents the South Puget Sound for this prestigious national competition.  
Our program for the Feb 9th meeting will be Jevin West.   Jevin is an Associate Professor in the Information School at the University of Washington. He is the Director of the new Center for an Informed Public at UW and co-founder of the DataLab. His research and teaching focus on the impact of technology on science and society, with a focus on slowing the spread of misinformation. He is the co-author of the book, “Calling Bullshit: The Art of Skepticism in a Data-Driven World”, which provides a set of tools for questioning numbers, data, and statistics  confidently and without any advanced degree in data science. The book is based on a course he co-developed in 2017 that is now being taught at universities around the globe. 
Each month a club member is named as Rotarian of the Month.  The newly awarded member will then be the one to select next month's ROTM for the reason of their choosing.  
Congratulations to:
July - Joe LeRoy
August - Stephanie Shramm
September - Terri Scott
October - Tony Buhr
November - Anne Hand
