Cool Jazz Clean Water

Submitted by Corrina Phillips
 
2017 marked the 16th annual Cool Jazz Clean Water event held at the Washington Center of Performing Arts.
 
To most of us it’s a fun filled day of listening to our area local high school bands showcase their very talented jazz tunes.  Come evening, the Washington Center becomes the hub for some delectable wine tasting, reuniting with old friends throughout the community, and meeting new faces as well.
 
BUT what is Cool Jazz Clean Water; what does the event stand for; what do they do, who do they help?  Cool Jazz Clean Water is sponsored by nine local Rotary Clubs throughout Thurston County.  Cool Jazz Clean Water raises money through event sponsorships, ticket sales, auction items, and t-shirt sales.
 
DID YOU KNOW:  
  • 50% of the proceeds raised at the Cool Jazz Clean Water event go to third world countries for water purification projects
  • Approximately $10,000.00 per year goes to our local schools for the purchase of new refurbished band instruments
  • $2,500.00 goes to the Local Boys & Girls Club to sponsor our local youth in the Local Youth Summit
  • Camp Hope (our most recent recipient) Cool Jazz Clean Water donated $2,500.00 to the Local Chapter of Camp Hope - a program to help educate and stop the vicious cycle of domestic violence
NOW YOU KNOW:
 
Please join us on November 17th, 2018, for the 17th Cool Jazz Clean Water event.  Come during the day come and check out our extremely talented local school jazz bands.  Come during the evening bring your friends, family and guests and join us for another fun filled evening of great wines, great friends, and good times.
 
Be a sponsor, buy/sell tickets, buy a t-shirt, and donate/bid on a basket.

BECAUSE NOW YOU KNOW:   YOUR DOLLAR REACHES NEAR & FAR
 
ROTARY POINT AT WEST BAY PARK
 
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
