“As a Rotarian for 20 plus years, I have watched our community grow and prosper.  It has been an amazing experience to be involved in much of that growth, and moreover, be involved as a Rotarian.  The Crab Feed is more than just a community event.  It is the basic foundation for our funds that we use to support our community.  There are so many projects that we are involved in annually, and those projects are actually people that count on us to survive and thrive.  We want to thank our community for the continued support and look forward to a successful online auction! Jacqui Curtiss, President

“Port Orchard Rotary has served our community for almost 50 years. As global challenges have brought us into our homes, Rotarians wanted to continue to serve our community. We decided to help our doctors, nurses and hospital personal, so within a span of 48 hours, we raised $3100 to provide meals to our local hospital staff. We have been available to our community in the good times, and now we’re here serving our community in challenging times as well” says Leslie Reynolds-Taylor, 2019-20 Past President of Port Orchard Rotary.
