The Rotary Club of East Jefferson County was presented the Presidential Citation - Gold for 2018-19 by Greg Horn, district governor-elect, on October 3rd, at a regular meeting of the club. Club President Paul Wynkoop received the award on behalf of past club president Caleb Summerfelt and the Club. This is the fourth time that a Rotary Presidential Citation has been earned by the East Jefferson County club. Only 7 percent of the more than 35,000 Rotary Clubs worldwide earn the Presidential Citation, Rotary International’s highest club-level recognition.

The 2018-19 Presidential Citation recognized Rotary clubs for achievements that enhance humanitarian service at both the local and international level, promote membership growth within the club, and strengthen club support of Rotary public outreach.

EJC Rotary has always been deeply engaged in support of the communities in the Tri-Area. Highlighting the year was the Club’s strong support of the Jefferson Teen Center, which was accomplished with a matching grant from the club’s district, Rotary District 5020, and a robust scholarship program for Chimacum and Quilcine High School students.  The Club enjoyed strong membership growth during the year as well.     For more information about the Rotary Club of East Jefferson County, visit
