August was a busy month for Rain City Rotary!

On August 13th we sold beer and wine at the North City Jazz Walk.

It was fun meeting and visiting with people while listening to good Jazz music. We made over $500, which will go to Rotary International’s campaign to end Polio worldwide.

RCR member Kim Lancaster said, “It was another great year for Rain City Rotary at the North City Jazz Walk.  Thanks to everyone who purchased beer and wine from us, and gave “a little extra”  to help end Polio. We appreciate all the work done by Keith and Robin McClelland, Penny Brenton, Ellen Sullivan, Charlotte Haines and many others to make the Jazz Walk happen”.
Rain City's job is to hand out backpacks at the
Back to School Event

On August 24th Rain City Rotary gave out backpacks at the Shoreline Back to School event. We gave out 1100 backpacks, each filled with supplies for the students to begin the school year. This has become our “place”, and we look forward to it each year.

RCR member Tom Andrews said, “After putting three children through the Shoreline schools with all the backpacks and supplies they needed, it was gratifying to have a little part in helping kids whose parents are struggling financially get what they needed to go back to school”.

Rain City Rotary meets most Thursday nights at 6:30pm.  Visit Rain City Rotary to follow our schedule.
