Tacoma North Rotary

Currently 61% of Ugandans lack access to safe water and 75% do not have access to improved sanitation facilities. Tacoma North Rotary Club, along with Circle of Friends In Action (COFIA) and others have raised funds for two water wells in #Uganda that are now under construction.  Phase one is projected to be completed within the next few weeks. The wells will serve children and families in an area where access to clean water is often miles from home. Thank you to our generous members and supporters who are making a difference! #rotary #makingadifference #worldwaterday #wwd2018

"No Straw" Initiative

Recently our Club members and guests learned more about the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium "No Straw" initiative. Plastic drinking straws are one of the major polluters degrading our waterways and oceans.  Suzanne showed us ways we can help keep plastics out of our waterways and how conservation can be fun! Club members will be inviting Shenanigans to join the No Straw initiative by eliminating straws from our meetings. All are welcome at our weekly meetings. Stop on by Tuesdays at noon at Shenanigans. #rotary #rotary5020#makingadifference

Tacoma North Rotary club's annual Oktoberfest event was a great success thanks to the generous support of our friends and guests.  The proceeds will, among other things, bring our iPads for Autism initiative to successful conclusion.

 

 

The Tacoma North Rotary mission focuses especially on youth.  Some of our efforts include:

-iPads for classrooms of autistic kids

-College scholarships for minority students through Palmer Scholars Foundation

-Bicycles for kids in partnership with the boys and girls clubs

-Weekend food backpacks for disadvantaged students in partnership with Food Connection at St Leo's

-School supplies for disadvantaged students

-Support for the fight to eradicate polio through the Rotary International Polio Plus Program: https://www.rotary.org/en/news-media/africa-brink-polio-eradication

-Uganda water well project

 
iPads for Autism is a multi-year effort to provide iPads for use in the Tacoma School District autism classrooms, a service that experimental programs  at Mary Lyon and Reed elementary schools found to be a very successful learning tool for these special needs students.  This year’s effort completed the initial project for the Tacoma School district.  See the Tacoma School District story on this project on the Tacoma Public Schools website at    https://www.tacomaschools.org/news/pages/rotary-donates-ipads.aspx 
  And visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3nNDZqOUCU&feature=youtu.be to see the story of young student Micah's experience learning to communicate with the iPad 
 
 
Earth Day
 
Tacoma North Rotarians help plant 70 trees October 14 around Reed Elementary school in observance of Earth Day.   Tacoma School District, the City of Tacoma and local community groups teamed up to accomplish a community building project that will better improve the air quality and aesthetic in the Jennie Reed neighborhood.  Visit  https://tacomaweekly.com/front-page/students-plant-trees-for-better-air-quality-at-jennie-reed-elementary/  for more details.
 
 
Tacoma North supports Palmer Scholars
 
The Palmer Scholars mission, like Tacoma North Rotary, focuses on helping youth in the greater Tacoma area.  In addition to financial assistance, TNR Rotarians  help Palmer Scholars staff review scholarship applications and provide mentors to successful students.
