Fellow Hanover Rotarians -
Below is the link to sign-up to volunteer with New Hope next week - Dec 15, 16, and 17. AquaPhoenix is volunteering on the distribution day (Dec. 16th from 12-4) but New Hope also needs help to setup and cleanup the day before and after. Hopefully your schedule will allow for some time over those three days.
They are in need of Greeters, Gift Wrappers, Shoppers (help the individuals around the facility), Refreshments, Stockers (restock tables),Car Loaders, etc. Please let me know if you have any questions. It was a humbling and heart-warming day for many of us last year.

The Hanover Rotary Club has participated in our District's Group Study Exchange Program for many years. This program provides an opportunity for young professionals from other countries to visit our District to learn about our culture and explore similar vocational interests to the ones they pursue at home while we send a Team to our partnering country to do the same. Teams normally consist of 4 young professionals led by a Rotarian and visits last for one month. Our Club members have served as host families for incoming Team members, guides for various community activities, coordinators for in-coming Teams while they visit the Hanover area, and Team Leaders for out-going Teams. The goal of GSE is to foster peace and understanding throughout the world through emersion in other cultures.
Most recently we participated in exchanges with Scotland in 2013 and Argentina in 2014.
We are currently preparing for an exchange with a Team from the Czech and Slovak Republics which will take place in late April and May 2014.
The Hanover Rotary Club is planning to launch 2 major fundraisers this year.
The first one, Sports Night, is scheduled for Wednesday evening, February 18, 2015. Sports Night has been our main fundraiser for many years. The Rotary Club coordinates an evening devoted to youth sports which includes a dinner, presentations and a Q & A session by several significant sports figures, autograph sessions, silent auction of sports memorabilia, and scholar athlete awards to area high schoolers. Local businesses and individuals sponsor tables to help fund the event.
All proceeds from the event go to support area youth.
The second major fundraiser this year is a new venture for the Hanover Rotary Club. It is called Tastefest and will be held on Friday March 6, 2014 at the Eichelberger building. Tickets will be sold for individuals to attend and taste food creations from some of the areas finest eateries. Corporate and individual sponsors will be enlisted to help support the event. All proceeds will be used to support community causes as identified by the Hanover Rotary Club.

Rotary AIDS day event turns spotlight on world’s deadliest infectious disease
The recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the worst ever, has claimed several thousand lives and generated worldwide concern. But its impact pales in comparison to that of AIDS, which, despite advances in treatment, still kills more than a million people a year, the majority of them in Africa. "Even with the Ebola outbreak at its worst expected levels, it's never going to reach what we've seen with the HIV/AIDS epidemic," said Dr. Timothy B. Erickson, director of the Center for Global Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, speaking at Rotary's World AIDS Day event in Evanston on 1...
Statement by Rotary International on the deadly school attack in Pakistan
Rotary International condemns the horrific attack that killed more than 130 schoolchildren and wounded over 100 of their classmates in Peshawar, Pakistan. We believe that children everywhere have the basic right to receive an education in an environment unthreatened by violence or fear. Rotary extends our heartfelt sympathy to all of the families in Pakistan, including those of seven Rotary members, who have lost children as a result of this unfathomable tragedy. We stand with them in mourning their loss. Gary C.K. Huang, PresidentRotary International
Indoor air pollution linked to millions of deaths
After decades dreaming about the Himalayas, Rotary member George Basch went on his first trek through the mountains in 2001, when he was 64. A member of the Rotary Club of Taos-Melagro in New Mexico, USA, Basch found that the experience was even more than he had hoped. "My expectations were high, and dramatically exceeded," he remembers. But a less-than-pleasant aspect of the experience was the indoor smoke pollution he encountered in the guest houses and private homes he visited. Many families in the Himalayas use rudimentary cookstoves or, in some cases, an open fire pit inside the home to...
Rotary staff members bond over Miles to End Polio bike ride
For six staff members from Rotary headquarters in Evanston, the fight to eradicate polio has become personal. Together, they biked the physically grueling 104-mile (167-kilometer) Tour de Tucson in Arizona, USA, collectively raising more than $20,000 for polio eradication while putting their bodies and minds through a feat of endurance. For the tightknit group, the experience was about more than just raising money and crossing the finish line. It was about learning about each other and what Rotary members are doing to rid the world of this crippling disease. They advocated together, trained...
How a simple school project in India became a global grant
Two years ago, U.S. Rotary members in Maine set out to improve the education system in Bikaner, Rajasthan, an Indian city near the border of Pakistan. The Rotary Club of Kennebunk Portside chose Bikaner because club member Rohit Mehta was originally from the area and had connections there. Mehta put the club in contact with Rotarians in India to provide desks for four government-run schools. But when community leaders returned with a request for more desks, the Maine Rotarians decided they had to think bigger. The Rotary Foundation had rolled out its new grant model, which required that the...
