President's Message 1-30-19
"Nearly 60 percent of Bethlehem’s 14,000 students qualify for free and reduced meals."
 Morning Call 8/24/19
 
In 2017, Morning Star Rotary started a relationship with Thomas Jefferson Elementary School.  That Rotary year we received a district grant to fund a number of projects at the school.  In November we were privileged to hear more about TJ Elementary from Principal, Tracey Hirner.  This Thursday we will have a wonderful opportunity to learn more about TJ, experience a student meal and see the projects and equipment supported by the district grant.  This will also be an opportunity to explore developing our relationship further.
 
We will be collecting our $10 meeting fee and donating it to the meal program.  So bring a cup of coffee along and let's meet at TJ Elementary, 404 E. North St, Bethlehem.  The school doors will be open starting at 7:15am (If there is a 2 hour delay, Principal Tracey has confirmed that they will still be ready for us.  Of course, if school is canceled we will not meet.)
 
Yours in Rotary Service,
Plan-it Janet

"Costumes for a Cause" Important Info

There will be opportunity to bid on silent auction baskets and participate in the 50/50 raffle.  Cash bar too!
 
Why costumes?  What a great way to show your "inner Rotarian!"  Be creative and have fun expressing your passion for Rotary. Not "into" wearing a costume - why not wear some Rotary "swag?" Or, do you like to dress up for Rotary events? Wear your tuxedos and tiaras.
