Hello. We've been organized as a Bluebill chapter since 1998. Our objectives are to improve the lives
of the people in the communities we serve and to provide volunteer and social opportunities for retirees on
the Olympic Peninsula. Our chapter has a number of programs that serve the communities.

The following is a brief description of each program.



 INDEPENDENT LIVING PROGRAM AND COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS

Indendant living
This is a program to make homes safer and more comfortable for the elderly and physically disabled. Clients are usually referred to us by agencies or hospitals.
Funding for material is from the agency or client.

Common projects are ramp construction, grab bar installation, door widening for wheelchair access, railing installation and minor home repairs relating to safety and ease of living.

   

 
ESSENTIAL SUPPLY DISTRIBUTION

WorldVisionSuppliesThis is a World Vision program that obtains, processes and distributes top-quality, donated products to the needy. Goods are distributed free of charge to agencies, churches and schools.

Bluebills pick up goods from the World Vision warehouse in Fife, WA. and distribute the products to eligible organizations in our area.


SCHOOL SUPPLY DISTRIBUTION

As well as providing goods and furniture for families, a number of Bluebills volunteer to work at the Dove House.


CHRISTMAS GIVING PROGRAM

XMAS GIVINGPort Ludlow based Community Enrichment Alliance and the Boeing Bluebills join to provide a Christmas for the women and children who are in the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Programs in Kitsap,
Jefferson and Clallam Counties, WA.

 In 2011 this program provided gifts for 82 families - 121 individuals who may not have been expecting to provide any Christmas for themselves or their children.

                            

In addition to serving the community we attempt to foster a spirit of teamwork and friendship among our members.

             Each month we publish a chapter newsletter called the FLYER. It is distributed electronically to all members and selected agency personnel.

             Leadership Team meetings are held at 9:00 on the second Tuesday of each month at the Bay Club in Port Ludlow.  Exact date in the FLYER.

             Each quarter we hold a social event which includes lunch and a program. Details are published in our FLYER.
