From the President
Our Rotary Club of Olympia has joined with the Olympia Lake Run Organization to form a new Club fundraiser.  It will be called The Trials Legacy Marathon and Lakefair Runs. It will be held on Juy 16th 2016 and The Trials Legacy Marathon will be run on approximately 80% of the original 1984 Woman’s Olympic Trials Marathon.  The Lakefair runs will be made up of a half marathon ,a 8k and a 3k run. It is hoped that this event will become a major fundraiser for our Club.
The next few week’s featured speakers are certain to grab your attention and liven up your day.  They include:
  • Awarding of scholarships for graduating Olympia High School students
  • One of our long time members and past president Jim Jenner will tell us about carrier pigeons.
  • Author, Jim Lynch, on his most recent best seller, “Before the Wind”
  • First meeting in July we will install our new president Wendy Holden
  • REMEMBER - Independence Day (July 4th) is a holiday so there will be no meeting on that date.
  • AND... Our annual club picnic will be held on August 8th.
Of course there are others so check our calendar on the menu above for information on future programs.  You will also find details of our very next program on this site's homepage in the left hand column.

Rotary Point at West Bay Park in Olympia, Washington, is the culmination of a unique partnership between the City of Olympia and the Rotary Clubs of Thurston County.
The 4 acre park is located on the western shore of one of the southernmost points of the Puget Sound and is a spectacular site that provides outstanding views of the State Capitol, ship canal and Olympic peaks.  A Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program Water Access Grant and an Aquatic Lands Enhancement Grant helped to fund acquisition, development, and shoreline enhancement.
A partnership with local Rotary Clubs resulted in a developed overlook, a handheld boat launch and other improvements.
Here is a list of the eight Rotary Clubs in Thurston County that partnered in the creation of Rotary Point at West Bay Park:
The Rotary Club of Olympia
Capital Centennial Rotary Club of Olympia
The Rotary Club of West Olympia
The Rotary Club of South Puget Sound-Olympia
The Rotary Club of Yelm
The Rotary Club of Lacey
Tumwater Rotary Club
The Gateway Rotary Club
700 W. Bay Dr. NW
Olympia, WA 9502
