The Rotary Club of York, PA is proud to be the only Rotary Club designated as a "hub" for the National Honor Flight. NHF was founded to give veterans of World War II and the Korean Conflict an opportunity to make the pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. to visit their memorials and witness the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. It is a special day which generally includes a motorcycle honor guard and a greeting with our national representatives. 
The next “flight” is scheduled to leave by bus from York PA the third week in October.
Rotary Club of York is asking us to help identify qualified veterans. The veteran’s name, address or email address, and phone number should be sent to Rotarian Al Sykes at Al’s phone is 717-880-1261.
York Rotary is also looking for chaperones to spend the day with one of our veterans. The cost for the chaperone is $100.00 and includes a box lunch. It is an unforgettable day for the veteran and for the chaperone.

At our regular meeting on Tuesday January 27, 2015 Chad-Alan Carr, Founding Executive/Artistic Director of the Gettysburg Community Theatre, shared a program that the Theatre sponsors called the Penguin Project.  Essentially area youth with special needs are invited to become the performers in a theatrical production.  Each young person is assigned a peer mentor to assist with the rehearsals and performances.  The theatre is currently looking for youth, both those with special needs and those without, from the Adams/Hanover area to participate in this year's production.  If you or someone you know might be interested in this unique opportunity please contact :

The Earhart Saga - What Really Happened


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...
Korean sailor makes waves for End Polio Now
Enjoying calm winds and peaceful Pacific waters, Seung Jin Kim dove off his 43-foot sailboat, the Arapani, to swim with some dolphins nearby. The serenity that day near the equator was a stark contrast to the 60 mph winds and 23-foot waves he had to fight around Cape Horn, the southern tip of South America. But Kim, a veteran sailor and member of the Rotary Club of Seokmun, in Chungcheongnam, Korea, expected such challenges when he set out in mid-October on a 25,600-mile journey around the world. In addition to fulfilling a lifelong dream, Kim is using the trip to raise awareness and funds...
Monrovia club’s Ebola fight not finished
After the first cases of Ebola reached Liberia's capital, Monrovia, last June, local Rotary members feared that the city's limited health care system wouldn't be able to contain the highly infectious, often-deadly disease. Those fears were realized when infections quickly multiplied, underscoring the speed with which Ebola can spread in an urban center. It was the first time the hemorrhagic fever had threatened a major city since it erupted in West Africa last March. Now, after months of crisis-level response, and with the number of new cases declining, club members are looking to the long...
Rotary member takes fundraising to new heights -- the summit of Mount Everest
Despite his longstanding interest in polio eradication, polio was not on Joe Pratt's mind as he prepared for a mid-April 2012 climb of Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth. But that changed in late 2011, when the resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA, participated in a polio immunization project in Pakistan with fellow Rotary member Steve Puderbaugh. Moved by the efforts of the Pakistanis to battle the crippling disease, and by the vulnerability of the young victims, Pratt reset the focus of his climbing adventure. Pakistan is one of three countries where polio has never been...
San Francisco club reveals formula for growth and retention of members
Members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco Evening meet at a wine bar after work, share a social outing, and promote all their activities on social media like Meetup and Facebook. As the first evening club in the city, it has attracted many young professionals from Silicon Valley tech firms whose work schedules keep them from joining a more traditional club that meets for breakfast or lunch. But more than that, the evening format has helped the club grow by 30 percent since it received its charter in mid-2013. Danielle Lallement, who was its charter president, says the club has been...
