Doylestown Rotary News

 
 
Bucks County Commissioner, Diane Ellis-Marseglia, will be speaking to the Doylestown Rotary Club on September 9th about the current situation with the COVID-19 virus in Bucks County. Diane was recently elected to her 4th term on the Board of Commissioners. A life-long resident of Bucks County, she was raised in Lower Makefield and now resides in Middletown Township. As a clinical social worker, she has worked with children and families in Bucks County for more than two decades. We look forward to learning how our club can play a role in helping others during this time of uncertainty. 
The Rotary Club of Doylestown continues its philanthropic commitment to the community by awarding $36,000 in grants to eleven charitable organizations and efforts.
 
Eight of the grantees were selected through Doylestown Rotary's annual RFP process, and three grantees were previously chosen to receive ongoing grants. Each year, Doylestown Rotary holds various fundraising events to raise money to support local nonprofit organizations and capital projects focused on promoting peace, providing addiction education, deterring expressions of hate, and helping families at risk and victims of abuse.
 
 
Our club meeting on June 10, 2020 initiated what we hope will be an ongoing discussion about Black History and current racial tensions, as we search for a way to make positive change, in our communities and in ourselves. We asked four Rotarians of minority ethnic heritage from our club to participate and three were able to join us: Doylestown Attorney Melissa Bond, Non-profit Executive Ify Aduba and Financial Advisor Kal Patel. Doylestown Rotarian and Peace Center President, Connie Keener, moderated the panel discussion. Our panelists shared history along with personal experiences and when the question was asked, "what can we as a Rotary Club do to make a difference?", the answer was education. Whether in the form of scholarships for Bucks County students to attend Black Colleges, which are financially hurting right now, or some other means, the outcome of the meeting gave a us a direction to head. Thank you Connie, Melissa, Ify, and Kal for a wonderful presentation and thank you to Janet Kolepp (our next DG) from the Bethlehem Morning Star Club, DGN Bob Hobaugh from Kutztown, PE Dan Watson-Bey from Harleysville, PE Mindi Vogel from Blue Bell, PP Bob Powers from Hatboro, and AG Patti Smith from Blue Bell for joining our discussion!

The Four Way Test

What is
“The Four Way Test”?
Of the things we think, say or do …
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all Concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to All Concerned?

The Four Way Test is the key to being a Rotarian. It reminds us that we practice high ethical standards in our everyday lives. We believe that if we can promote The Four Way Test to our community it will benefit all of us.
