Rotary Club's Kingston Order Bombers Strike Again

Kingston North Kitsap’s Rotary Order Bombers landed on D’Vine Wines Wednesday, Mar 31.  Fifty-nine orders resulted.  This was the fourth, and best-attended, event in the Club’s series of bombing runs. Owner Micki Monroe was grateful for the love, after a very difficult Covid-19 year.  Our own Breane and Julie celebrated on the deck at D’Vine, not exactly at a “social distance.”  Perhaps they are “bubble-mates.” 

Ron and Brenda Jones were among the Bombers.

    Next week Kingston’s Coffee Oasis is the target.  The date is Wednesday, Apr 7, 9a-2p.  Indoor seating is available - no reservation is required - as well as takeout.  All the support we can muster for Coffee Oasis is greatly appreciated.  Their experience in Kingston has been fraught with challenges, from initial opening, through Covid year, when they were forced to temporarily shutter the place.  As most know Coffee Oasis is a coffee shop with a food menu, too.  It exists to provide opportunities for youth and gathering places for the community.  100% of cafe profits support youth programs.

    To participate in the Coffee Oasis action, all that is necessary is to inform Rotary’s Coffee Oasis coordinator, Chris Gilbreath.  Email Chris at: - or -  And to order takeout, phone Coffee Oasis at 360-881-0314.

District Governor Greg Horn Speaks to Rotarians

   District Governor Greg Horn visited the Kingston North Kitsap Rotary Club Wednesday, Mar 31.  He’s in charge of Rotary District 5020, which he described as the largest in North America, with 93 Clubs and almost 4400 members.  Horn has been a Rotarian twenty-five years.

    The Governor outlined the journey to his post which began three years ago.  He cited the leadership skills Rotarians build.  And talked about Rotary being a networking organization originally, having grown into a service organization.  He talked about Rotary building alliances with Toastmasters, and the recent addition of the Environment to Rotary’s initiatives worldwide.

    To date, since the Club’s founding, Kingston North Kitsap Rotarians have contributed $122k to the Rotary Foundation, half of which comes back to the District for local projects, the remaining half enabling Rotary’s worldwide projects.

Kingston North Kitsap Rotarians Briefed on New St Michael Medical Center

    At their Mar 24 Zoom meeting, Kingston North Kitsap Rotarians heard from Sarah Chamberlin, Executive Director of St. Michael Medical Center Foundation. The Medical Center, in Silverdale, recently underwent a $500m, 500k square-foot expansion, including a new 60k square-foot Cancer Center, an Acute Care facility, and a 60k square-foot Medical Pavilion. 

    St. Michael is part of the newly-merged Virginia Mason CHI Franciscan conglomerate that boasts 18k team members, 5k physicians, 11 hospitals, and 300 care centers.  

    Sarah showed stunning images of the new 248-bed facility, with surgical services that include robotic-assisted surgery, orthopedic and joint replacement, and expanded stroke and heart care.  When asked about recent patient satisfaction surveys, she indicated St. Michael’s goal is 78% satisfaction.  The most recent results exceeded 80%.
