Guy Hoppen, Anne Nesbit and Danna Webster are being honored by the three Rotary Clubs in Gig Harbor for their contributions to the greater Gig Harbor community. The annual Rotary Star Awards honors non-Rotarians who exemplify Rotary’s motto of Service Above Self. The event raises funds for charities designated by the honorees. Gig Harbor Rotary is honoring Danna Webster for her many contributions to the Key Peninsula Community, including starting the Farm Tour and serving for several years as the President of the Key Peninsula Community Council, her chosen charity. Gig Harbor Midday Rotary is recognizing Guy Hoppen for his work as President and Founding Director of the Gig Harbor BoatShop, Hoppen’s designated charity. Rotary Club of Gig Harbor North is honoring Anne Nesbit. She is the Executive Director of the Key Peninsula Free Clinic, volunteer firefighter and battalion chief, and actively involved in youth suicide prevention. Nesbit’s charity is the Suicide Prevention Coalition. “We are excited to honor these unsung heroes” said Julie Tappero, committee chair. “Its’s hard to imagine the impact they have collectively made on our community. They’ve done it because they’ve cared so deeply, and not for any recognition. It’s our pleasure to celebrate their efforts and contributions.” The Star Awards are February 1st, 5:30 PM, at Canterwood Golf Club in Gig Harbor. The event is open to the public. Tickets are $40.
