Last year (2015), twenty-three (23) members of the three Rotary clubs (website) (East Jefferson County, Port Townsend (Noon) and Port Townsend Sunrise Club) joined together with ShelterBox and the Marrowstone Island Emergency Preparedness Team (website) to support the 3rd Annual All County Picnic (link) in “CELEBRATING EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS AND COMMUNITY RESILIENCE”.

 

The theme is "Resilience".

 

"Emergency Management is committed to support self-sufficient neighborhoods that are prepared for the challenges of a major emergency, to continue active partnership in the development of a culture of community resilience, and aid in creation of local emergency plans and procedures that will help neighborhoods cope."

Come join us again on August 21, 2016.  

 

The All County Picnic was held on Sunday,  August 23, 2015 from 11 AM - 4 PM  at HJ Carroll Park in Chimacum, WA. Rotarians arrived at 9:30 to set up the three tents.

 

This was the best ACP of the three years. The lead producer - Danny Milholland reports "Final head count was 962, 35 new neighborhood organizers signed up, Speakers tent was a hit: 25-35 for the first two talks from 11:15 -12:15, upwards of 100 for the 2nd one at 12:30 and all the corn was served .... The final ears going out at about 3:45PM.  Perfect amount!!!"
