Bremerton Rotary is proud to sponsor the Bremerton Blackberry Festival, held each year over the Labor Day weekend. The Bremerton waterfront boardwalk comes alive with food booths, arts & crafts, music, clowns and children's activities. The 24th annual Bremerton Blackberry Festival is scheduled for Aug. 31-Sept. 2, 2013, attracting thousands of visitors during the three-day event. Members of our club helped organize the event and also staff the Rotary information booth, Oyster Booth, Berry Central (selling T-shirts and souvenirs) and Chalk on the Block contest. Our coordinator for the event is Carol Atkinson. All proceeds our club receives from the event will be reinvested in the local community. For more information, visit the Blackberry Festival website.

For the 6th consecutive year, Bremerton Rotarians and others read to kindergarteners in the Bremerton School District's six elementary schools once a week for nine weeks, starting in January. We read to 22 kindergarten classrooms, including two in a Spanish immersion program where our volunteers read in Spanish. Studies have shown that the more kindergarteners are read to, the better they will be prepared for learning to read.
Bremerton Rotary Club held its popular annual fundraiser, the Wild Game Dinner, Feb. 9, 2013 at the Kitsap Golf & Country Club. This popular event, featuring silent and live auctions and a dinner of wild game and exotic meats, helps support many of our charitable activities in the community. It has been held annually since 1985. A typical menu includes moose, elk, buffalo, venison, crab, oysters and baron of beef.
Thanks to Bremerton Rotarians, all third graders in the Bremerton School District have a scholastic dictionary to call their own. Marking the 10th consecutive year, Rotarians handed out a total of 398 dictionaries in October 2012 at the six elementary schools in the district, bringing the total number of dictionaries given to date to 3,910. The children are challenged to look up a new word every day!
