August 3, Meeting Minutes
Submitted by Curt Stutzman
The Rotary Club of Harrisburg met for it’s weekly meeting by Zoom video conference at noon or
Monday, August 3, 2020. The meeting was called to order by President James Good with
Addeline’s ringing of the virtual bell at 12:02 p.m. The Invocation was presented by Wil
Everhart. We were blessed to have Norma Swain give us her piano music, and she played the
currently popular anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing!” This was followed by the Pledge of
Allegiance, and the repeating of the Rotary 4-Way Test. President James encouraged the club
to keep the ideals of the 4-Way Test in mind throughout our day.
Rotary District 7390 is searching for a district Treasurer. Please contact Melissa at the District
office if you are interested or know someone who is.
We have a club service project next Monday, August 10 to benefit the Central PA Food Bank, It
will be located at the Farm Show building. Check out the club website for details
Remember to record your hobbies and interests on the club webpage under your member
section. A virtual poll of possible activities was held during the meeting, which was quite
A Share the Story initiative was highlighted which encourages each member to share the Rotary
Story on various social media platforms. Rotary merchandise is possible for members who post
at least three times.
Meghan Bachmore of the Harrisburg Regional Chamber of Commerce shared her Rotary
Moment and some interesting information about herself and her family. She is a Long Island
NY native, but loves calling this part of PA her home. She’s an avid cook and baker. She
started a new position as Membership Services Director at CRAEDIC, and and excited to be
part of numerous committees and activities of the club, and looks forward to working together
with us in the future.
Program Committee member John Morefield introduced Joe Arthur, Executive Director of the
Central PA Food Bank (CPFB). He was part of the expansion of the Food Bank to include new
warehouse locations over the years. Joe will be sharing about the impact of COVID-19 on Food
Bank needs and the greatly increased demand and need for volunteers. As we are aware, Joe
is an active member of the Rotary Club of Harrisburg, and serves this club and our community
very effectively. Proud Penn State alumnus Joe Arthur was welcomed warmly.
Rotarian Joe presented interesting and informative details about the Food Bank’s operations,
accomplishments, and challenges. Governor Wolf declared the CPFB as a life sustaining
organization early on in the COVID-19 crisis, which was much appreciated. Joe expressed his
appreciation for all our club has been doing for the Food Bank in the last number of years. This
is very impactful and highly valued. The Central PA Food Bank is very mission oriented, and
has more recently given greater expression of the reality that hunger cannot end until racism
ends, and the Food Bank will remain committed to standing up against racism and working
against inequities that sustain hunger.
The Food Bank serves 27 counties in Central PA, reaching 135,000 neighbors in need each
month. During COVID-19, this has increased 30% to more than 175,000. It provides 50 million
meals per year (up 45% with COVID-19--an extra 8.5 million meals!). Corporate donors provide
about 75% of the food distributed, and there are more than 1,000 partner agencies and
programs supporting the organization and its important work. Joe gives a big “Thank You!” to
all those who are part of this important work. In-kind support is so critical for CPFB.

There are 1 in 20 people in Central PA (155,560) who are “food insecure,” and this includes
about 1 in 4 children. During the COVID-19 pandemic, each county has seen its food insecurity
rate increase around 5%, and some rural counties have seen rates of food insecurity increase
by 15-17%. This increases the amount of persons needing to be served. There is a 2 year plan
to address increased need and underserved areas: no one will be turned away during this crisis
and beyond, and CPFB is adding new partners to help achieve this goal.
Together We Can Solve Hunger:
Donate ($1 generates about 6 meals)

Joe Arthur then responded to questions posed by Rotarians.
President James encouraged volunteers to sign up for Monday evening’s service project for the Food Bank, and to wear your Rotary Serves t-shirts.
Stay cool and make it a great week! The meeting was adjourned by President James at 12:54 p.m.
