Meet Resident Sharon Garrels
Sharon Garrels
Sharon was born in Los Angeles, California and is the oldest of five children. Growing up in the San Fernando Valley, the family had a menagerie of pets, including not just dogs and cats but a goat, donkey, horses and even a monkey.
After graduating from nursing school, Sharon went to work for the County of Los Angeles Department of Health Services at LAC+USC Medical Center, one of the largest teaching hospitals in the country. Although it was hard work, it was always interesting and she knew she made a difference every day. In 2009 she retired after 35 years as a Critical Care Nurse.

Grant Received by Tacoma Rotary #8
Lunch at the Senior Center
Within Tacoma, the Rotary Club of Tacoma (known as Rotary #8) donates grants to non-profit organizations, recommended by the Community Grants Committee, that serve low-income children and seniors. On June 22, Rotary #8 awarded FTJ’s Point Defiance ~ Ruston Senior Center a generous grant at the Club’s luncheon. 

Our community outreach programs are successful because of community partners like Rotary #8, who also believe strongly in serving seniors. We extend a heartfelt thank you to Rotary #8 for its support of the Point Defiance~Ruston Senior Center!
