Vashon Rotary was pleased to renovate the kitchen at the Land Trust’s newest property, the Kneeshaw House on Judd Creek. This house will be a retreat/meeting/event center for use by the community. The Vashon Rotary Club is also leading a project in Myanmar to fund health education for expecting mothers; the club has secured a $109,000 grant to do this work in partnership with a Seattle-based non-profit and the Rotary Club in Myanmar.
Dictionaries will be given, once again, this fall to every third grade student on Vashon Island. This book is a hybrid between child and adult learning, and will easily carry the kids through middle school. 2018 marks the 10th year that Vashon Rotary has done this!
