York-East Rotary Club Meeting Programs

Innovative Ways to Attract New Members

We were honored to have Kevin Engle, of the Rotary Club of Elizabethtown, provide us with a very enjoyable and informative presentation on recruiting and retaining new members. 
Kevin served as President of the E-Town Club over the 2016-2017 year.  During his tenure, he challenged the club to grow from 83 to 100 members.  By years end, the club actually hit 101 total members!
In order to ensure that the club remained vibrant and healthy, members successfully developed and implemented a number of creative new ways to recruit and retain members, which Kevin also shared with us.
In his current position, Kevin now serves in Rotary District 7390, as their District Membership Chair.

Mayor Michael Helfrich 

On Tuesday, Nov. 6th, Michael Helfrich, Mayor of York City, spoke to our club about his vision for the City of York. After summarizing York's long history as a leading manufacturing center, Mayor Helfrich explained his hope that York can carry on this tradition by becoming a manufacturing center in the technology industry. During his talk, he addressed the challenges presented by the high rate of poverty from which York has suffered for many years. His goal is to organize neighborhoods of about 800 residents and establish community centers in each to offer child care and community activities thereby fostering neighborhood interaction and interdepenence. He presented these goals with energy and enthusiasm and was well received by the members.

On Tuesday, October 16, 2018, Meagan Given spoke to our members about the creation and success of GiveLocalYork, a 24 hour fund raising marathon founded by the York Federal Fellows Alumni Association.  The first GiveLocalYork event was held on Friday, May 4, 2018 to coincide with downtown York's First Friday promotion.  To encourage contributions to local charities, a stretch pool of $100,000 was created by Peoples Bank, the York County Community Foundation, the Power Mill Foundation, and the Arthur J. and Lee R. Glatfelter Foundation.  These funds were shared by the non-profits based on the percentage of the total funds raised by each organization.  The first GiveLocalYork effort exceeded the pre-established goal by almost $500,000! Planning is well underway for the next Giving Day to be held on Friday, May 3, 2019.
