BE A REAL POTATO PICKER AND HELP THE FOOD INSECURE IN 5 COUNTIES
 
Dear ROTARIANS: 
Harvest conditions have caused The Potato Project to ask us Rotarians to pick potatoes at a new 15 acre location in conjunction with a harvest festival on Saturday, September 22, 2018 beginning at 1:00 pm:  22 Luckenbill Road, Kutztown, PA 196530 which appears on Google Maps as follows: https://www.google.com/maps/place/22+Luckenbill+Rd,+Kutztown,+PA+19530/@40.5105258,-75.7912856,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x89c5d3c8b17e422f:0x809954bb509f71f!8m2!3d40.5105258!4d-75.7890969?hl=en .
 
We will donate these potatoes to the Berks Food Bank to assist food-insecure people in a 5-county area.
 
Please join other District 7430 Rotarians at this new location which is Kutztown University’s farm and the German Heritage Center.
 
 
This is a perfect project for all Rotarians and friends; those who do not pick can help by (1) serving freshly cut French fried potatoes and drink to other volunteers, (2) taking pictures, (3) assisting with boxes on pallets for others to load, or (4) smiling.   
Exchange students, Rotaract and Interact members and children and grandchildren are welcome too, provided you supervise them with qualified adults.
 
Please share this opportunity with your Area Presidents and other constituents and other friends and let me know how many will participate by September 20, 2018. This is a change of location with better parking than the church field we previously picked. This supersedes my August 22, 2018 email about the other location. Thanks, Bob
