Area 2 Rotary Clubs (Bethlehem, Bethlehem Morning Star, Easton, Nazareth and Saucon Valley) came together March 10th at Moravian College's Haupert Union Building along with friends, family members, BAVTS students and Victory House residents. Working with Michele and Bobby Polito from The Outreach Program, the Rotary Community Team of over 200, ages 6 to 93, packaged 40,000 meals for families in need in our Club areas.
Food Insecurity is a serious concern in all communities, no matter the demographics of the areas. The 40,000 meals were double what was accomplished last year. The end products are shared to food pantries throughout the Area 2 Rotary Clubs.  A fantastic effort with lots of fellowship and sharing. True to the Rotary Theme - ROTARY: MAKING A DIFFERENCE!  Be sure to put this on your calendar for next year.
Our Spaghetti Dinner is Friday- April 20th, at the Cathedral Church of the Nativity.

Student referrals for Camp Neidig WANTED!!!
As many of our members already know, each year our club sponsors four high school juniors to participate in the four day leadership development program which is our district's Camp Neidig event.  Rotary District 7430 welcomes you to Camp Neidig, celebrating its 69th year of inspiring tomorrow's leaders in 2018! Preparations are under way for Camp Neidig 2018. Before starting this year's recruitment process in our Bethlehem area high schools, we would like to extend this sponsorship opportunity to interested sons and daughters of our club members.
Camp Neidig is a well-established youth development program dating back to 1950, and annually serves approximately 150 students from 80 high schools in our southeastern Pennsylvania region of district 7430.  The program begins on Friday, June 15, and concludes on Monday, June 18.  
For more information, please visit or feel free to contact Rick Morrissey at for a direct contact for students or parents with questions in reference to applying for Camp Neidig. Tour our site to see what makes this camp one of the best leadership experiences for high school students in Eastern Pennsylvania!
