Stories

 
PDG Janet Kolepp just recently spoke with Janet Sipple.  She is slowing down and gets around with a rolling walker.  She does plan to be at the lecture next week (as of today that is.)  There will not be a reception.  Since she had not been participating with the club much lately she didn't think we (MSR) would want to support the event.  She indicated that she would be thrilled to have anyone from MSR attend. 
 
The reserved seating is the first few rows in center down front. Rotary members are welcome to join me in this section.  Also parking is tough usually under the bridge so allow time for this. 
 
Yours in Rotary!
 
Shawn Bariana, President
 
 
 
Our District Governor, Bob Hobaugh, will be making his official District visit! Please plan to attend and show DG Bob our strong MSR Rotary support.

We have resumed volunteer responsibilities for the live meetings. Job duties include set up/breakdown, greeter, sergeant-at-arms, $2/week, 50/50, invocation and guest introductions. Please contact Ron Searfoss at rsearfos@ptd.net with the date and job that you would like to fill. If you are signed up for a job duty, we ask that you arrive at the Flatiron building at 7AM for the morning meeting.
 
If you see a new face visiting one of our meetings, please take a moment to introduce yourself and welcome our guests. In the next few months, we may see more new faces as members of the Saucon Valley Rotary Club have been invited to attend Bethlehem Morning Star meetings. 
 
At our Club Assembly via zoom last week, we brainstormed ideas to help revitalize finances so we can continue to help our community. Many great ideas were mentioned, including a cornhole tournament, online auction, polar golf, calendar raffle, purse bingo, duck race, trivia night, breakfast with Santa, wine tasting, beer tasting, tricky tray auction, casino night, online game of chance, cow bingo, mobile shredding event and St. Paddy's Day race. As well as the need for event ideas, we greatly need our members to step up and take charge for the events to become successful. Be on the lookout for an email from me in early October regarding the above mentioned events and a survey poll to our Club members.
 
Yours in Rotary,
 
Shawn Bariana 
President (2021-22)
 
Northampton County Solicitor, Richard Santee,  made a very interesting presentation on the Election Commission. "Voting in Northampton County - 2021: Where we are and how we got there."  Richard covered many areas of the Solicitor's role and answered a great number of questions from the Rotarians present.
