This is the second year of a Kingston North Kitsap Rotary Club project, led by Satellite Club members, to brighten the holidays of folks in North Kitsap who are shut-ins, by themselves, elderly, and who may not otherwise have a greeting from someone that says, "We care Happy holidays."  This year's goal was to deliver 1500 handwritten holiday cards.  As of Dec 14, 2,518 cards had been prepared for delivery. Here Rotarians Rae Winn (left), Brian Stenehjem, and Emily Froula at work sorting and prepping the cards.
Folks in places like Martha & Mary, Village Green Senior Center, Liberty Shores, Brookdale, the Retsil Veterans Home, and others will receive the holiday love. And with the help of a $1k grant and $200 in coupons from the Poulsbo Home Depot, the Rotary elves will deliver poinsettias, wreaths, cards and trees.  Here, David Winn, Satellite Club President, "shops" for the joy-giving items.
In addition, 50 poinsettias, 50 advent calendars, and 50 Hershey's kiss bags were delivered to ShareNet.  The holiday card and gift project puts a "wrap" on Kingston North Kitsap Club activities for the year.  It has been an active, fruitful, and productive year, with many Rotary hands making good in the North Kitsap community.
