July is Rotary Changeover Month.
Every year, Rotary International and Rotary Clubs all over the world change leadership on the first of July. This year our Past President Clint Boxman handed the reins of KNK Rotary to his able successor, President Stan Mack.
Stan, together with his new Board of Directors and Committee Chairs, has great plans for our coming Rotary year. Do you know what those plans are? Have you discussed them with Stan and the Board? If not - I would ask, why not...?
Please ensure you are involved in our Club, not just attending meetings!
On June 30th, the Coffee Oasis Board President signed the closing papers for a property in Kingston to be the newest Coffee Oasis location.
Many of you have given money, heart, and hope towards this project. You've seen the need for a place for the hurting youth of Kingston to go for community, resources, and opportunities, and our community drew together to make that happen. And now we celebrate!
Kingston’s Village Green Foundation has supported the Coffee Oasis project because of the shared heart for kids. “The vision of The Coffee Oasis to help youth off the streets, out of homelessness and into productive lives in the community aligns well with our commitment to support Kingston youth and families. We are grateful for their willingness to support Kingston’s youth who need us most.”
That is our hope; that this location will be a gift to young people who are hurting and lost, the ones who "need us most." For us at The Coffee Oasis, we also hope and pray that this project is and continues to be a gift to YOU. We hope you are blessed by investing in this project that will then bless others.
We thank you for helping make this dream a reality. $75,000 remains to be raised for renovations, and we are eager to walk through the rest of the project with our partners. We look forward to sharing news with you of the Kingston Coffee Oasis’ renovation and opening!
