PARTNERS IN LAKEWOOD ROTARY is a social and charitable organization open to spouses, widows and significant others of Lakewood Rotarians. We meet monthly in members' homes;  meetings start around 11:45 with lunch, followed by a program and business meeting.  Dues are $30 for the year.

Two scholarships per year are awarded, one to a Pierce College student and one to a Clover Park Technical College student.  Financial need and academic promise are considered.

Charitable donations are made each year to programs that directly and indirectly benefit Lakewood citizens and our military neighbors.  We donate to programs involving the arts, literacy, youth and families, such as:
  • Tacoma Youth Symphony
  • Tacoma Area Literacy Council
  • Family Renewal Shelter
  • Food Connection van to the Springbrook neighborhood
We collect for the FISH food bank at every Partners meeting.

Volunteers from Partners work with the READING IS FUNDAMENTAL (RIF) program at Custer Primary School.  Volunteers read to children in grades K-3.

Partners actively support every Lakewood Rotary fundraiser, particularly the annual SPORTSMAN'S DINNER AND AUCTION.  Most of our charitable donation budget comes from our work on the SD&A.

Partners are also involved in other Lakewood Rotary projects, such as Brewfest, held in August 2009. The Holiday Dinner Dance in December is a yearly Partners project.
