Kingston Order Bombers Move Target From Coffee Oasis to White Horse
About twenty-five folks added to the ticket count at Coffee Oasis Apr 7 as a result of Kingston Order Bombers targeting the coffee shop/bistro.  Management there said it was "busier than a "normal" Wednesday.  On offer were a range of craft coffees and a menu of breakfast and lunch sandwiches and wraps.  Cherry Blossom Latte?  Honey Lavender Oat Milk Latte? Maui Mango Ice Tea?  All available in a very pleasant atmosphere. Coffee Oasis invests coffee shop profits to provide opportunities for youth, including job training and internships, and gathering places for the community.
The next target of Kingston Order Bombers is Cedar Ridge Grill at White Horse Golf Club.
Next Monday, Apr 12, 11a-6p.  Patrons (what they call customers at golf courses this time of year) can dine in or order takeout.  The number for takeout ordering is 360-598-1302. They do not take reservations so it is first-come, first-served for dining in (or on the expansive patio).
As a bonus, there is a happy hour menu 3-5p.  And, the golf shop is offering a 10% discount on merchandise for those who mention Kingston Rotary that day. 
Participation is not limited to Rotarians.  If one of the items on the menus below might fit your tummy next Monday - and IF you want to help local restaurants and businesses, sign up.  Kingston Order Bomber coordinator on this one is Breane Martinez.  Signal your intent to participate to Breane at:  
Stillwaters Environmental Center Update


     Kingston North Kitsap Rotary Club supports its community with ongoing grants to local organizations.  One such operation is Stillwaters Environmental Center in Kingston.  Stillwaters is an environmental science and education center in the Carpenter Creek watershed.  Under the direction of Stillwaters Program Director Melissa Fleming, community citizens are joined by interns and graduate students from local universities in conducting field research and monitoring and preserving the estuary, salt marsh, and the watershed.  

    Dr. Fleming spoke to KNK Rotarians at their Apr 7 Zoom meeting.  She explained the impact of replacing small culverts on West and South Kingston roads in recent years.  Those small culverts, she said, restricted young salmon going out to the ocean to become adults.  Estuaries help the salmon adjust from fresh to salt water in the journey to the sea.  

    Since 2001 Stillwaters has done monthly stream water quality monitoring as Carpenter Creek empties from Carpenter Lake to Puget Sound.  Additionally, Stillwaters volunteers accomplish bird and vegetation surveys.  Interestingly, they have noted more herons and bald eagles in the estuary, concluding it is becoming a richer feeding ground for the birds. 

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.
