President's Message 2-19-19
In 2016 the Charlotte & Tore Hartmann-Hansen Community Grant (HH Grant) was established by our club.  The grant, awarded annually to honor Charlotte & Tore's dedication to the work of Rotary, will continue their legacy of impact locally & globally. 
 
On Valentine's Day we celebrated the generosity of Charlotte & Tore to insure the legacy of this grant, with the  PDG Tore & Charlotte Hartmann-Hansen Endowment Fund through The Rotary Foundation and the Tore & Charlotte Hartmann-Hansen Fund for Bethlehem Morning Star Charitable Organization through the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation.  Proceeds from these two permanent funds will match an additional 50% of the award given annually through the HH Grant.
 
District Governor Cindy Hornaman also joined us to recognize Charlotte & Tore for achieving The Rotary Foundation - Major Donor Level 4
 
Our dear MSR friends certainly are an inspiration to us all!
 
Yours in Rotary Service,
Plan-it Janet

WHAT IS RESTORATIVE PRACTICES?
 
On January 24 we had the opportunity to hear Mary Jo Hebling, International Institute for Restorative Practices, enlighten us. Mary Jo gave an excellent presentation of just what Restorative Practices are and how the Institute reaches out to people all over the world.
 
All humans are hardwired to connect. Just as we need food, shelter and clothing, human beings also need strong and meaningful relationships to thrive.
 
Restorative practices is an emerging social science that studies how to strengthen relationships between individuals as well as social connections within communities.
 
The Fundamental Hypothesis of restorative practices is that human beings are happier, more cooperative and productive, and more likely to make positive changes in their behavior when those in positions of authority do things with them, rather than to them or for them.
 
The IIRP Graduate School is the first graduate school dedicated to restorative practices. Based in our own Bethlehem, PA, it has educated over 75,000 people in 85 countries.
