To take on many of the effects of Covid-19, funding is required.  To that end, Kingston North Kitsap Rotary invites you to the Club’s Winter Auction.  On line.  While funds raised will go to support its many initiatives throughout the year, such as scholarships, a good deal of the proceeds will help the Club to implement it’s Covid-19 Action Plan. In one twist on auction item procurement, instead of soliciting some of the auction items from local merchants, the Club will buy some of the auction items with funds raised by the auction. Successful bidders win, and a measure of business insecurity is addressed.  Here are the details on how you can participate in the auction, and support Covid-19 relief efforts right here in Kingston North Kitsap. The online auction begins Thursday, Feb 4, at 5:30 p.m.; it closes Friday, Feb 5, at 5:30 p.m. The live auction is set for Friday, Feb 5, 5:30-7:00 p.m. with Program and Raise the Paddle 7:00-7:30 p.m. For more information, and to participate, go to:  Mark your calendar now.  Feb 4, 5:30 p.m., and Feb 5, 5:30 p.m.

Here is a thought.  Many have recently received a $600 check from our federal government.  Could that be your seed money for the auction?  Or would you consider sending $600 to ShareNet, Fish Line, or Kitsap Homes of Compassion, and skipping the auction.  Either way, you help address needs resulting from Covid-19 impacts here in Kingston North Kitsap.  That’s a good thing.  And your local Rotarians thank you.
