The Silverdale Rotary Club recently honored Students of the Month from Central Kitsap High School, Klahowya Secondary School and Crosspoint Academy.  Each student being honored received limousine service from school to the Silverdale Beach Hotel, a luncheon in their honor, a certificate of achievement, a copy of the Rotary Four-Way Test, and a copy of the book, “Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens.”

Each quarter, the Silverdale Rotary Club also honors local Sailors and Marines.  On May 23, exemplary Sailors and Marines from the Marine Corps Security Force Battalion at Bangor and the USS CONNECTICUT (SSN-22) were honored.

These men and women are chosen from a large pool of candidates, and their level of achievement in outstanding service to our country as well as community involvement is truly astonishing, a Rotary statement said.

Rotarians said it was particularly timely to honor our Sailors and Marines just days before Memorial Day, a time when we are all reminded of the sacrifices of so many who have gone before.
