ROTARY NETWORK ENABLES RAPID RELIEF FOR UKRAINIAN REFUGEES

Rotary and Rotaract clubs in Europe and around the world have taken swift action and are working with members nearby to provide food, water, medical equipment, and shelter for refugees from the conflict in Ukraine. According to the United Nations, more than 2 million people, most of them women and children, have sought refuge in neighboring countries and across Europe, while about 1 million more people have been displaced within Ukraine. Efforts by Rotary clubs are ongoing.

Members of the Sequim Noon Rotary club have committed to supporting this effort and have contributed to date over $2,000 to Disaster Relief for Ukrainian refugees.  The club’s goal is $2,500+ which will be matched by District 5020 doubling the contribution.

The general public can join us in these relief efforts by following this link:

The club has been meeting in person since July of 2021 at the Big Elk Restaurant on the corner of Washington and Brown and have continued to use Zoom for on-line attendees.

All are welcome at our meetings, and anyone can contact us at sequimrotary@gmail.com for information  about how to participate in our programs on our Zoom platform. New folks are always welcome.

Sequim Noon Rotary Club members are a community service group. Their most successful recent project involves gifting Adaptive Bikes to physically challenged students in the Sequim school district. They also enjoy supporting other local, regional, and international service projects.

Sequim Noon Rotary will once again plan to offer their delicious alder-smoked salmon bake in August 2022. The club has funded its service projects with this alder smoked salmon bake since 1969, a 53-year Sequim tradition.
