Kim Rinehardt, Program Director for Mason County HOST (Housing Options for Students in Transition) visited us today and gave us valuable information on this important and vital program that 
offers support to goal-driven homeless students ages 16-21 by encouraging community-based housing and education advocacy. Students live with volunteer HOST families or in supportive transitional housing.  Participants are mentored by our Program Coordinator, located at CHOICE High School. Participants receive financial assistance, life skills development, and educational support to see them into independent adulthood.  Students can receive transition services for 6 to 12 months after graduating high school or GED. There are many homeless young adults in Mason County who want to earn their diplomas, GEDs or technical certifications but the day-to-day crisis of homelessness is getting in the way. For more information and how you can lend a hand: www.mason-co-host.org
 
 
President Kyle Hackney presents to J.T. Batstone, Interim Director of Saint's Pantry, two checks - $1000 for Saint's Pantry Food Bank and $1000 for the BackPack Program.
Howard Svigals, District 5020 Rotary Foundation Chair, spoke to the club about how Rotary Foundation transforms our gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent close to $3 billion in life-changing sustainable projects.  Your donation makes a difference to those who need our help most. More than 90 percent of donations go directly to supporting our service projects around the world. Our 35,000 clubs carry out sustainable service projects that support our six causes. With donations like yours, we’ve wiped out 99.9 percent of all polio cases. Your donation also trains future peacemakers, supports clean water, and strengthens local economies.
We are grateful for these wonderful kids that helped out at our OysterFest booth this year. James Nussbaum, Lainee Rawding, Shailee Allen and Lauren Crawford.  Both James and Lainee have done so for a couple of years now. This was Shailee's and Lauren's first time, but they both dove in there and worked so hard. All of them definitely exemplified "Service Above Self." 

Birthdays: Lee Ayers, Sue Vanderwal and Colleen Scott

Anniversaries: Tim and Mrs. Whitehead
