President's Message 4-8-19
RON IS HOME!!  A gigantic load of appreciation to MSR members and the Bethlehem community for contributing to make this happen.  Ron's journey has only begun - next, Ron's journey to healing and wholeness.
 
We had a wonderful MSR turnout at 1st Thursday last week, with over 30 of us raising our glasses to Ron!  I know we all want to stay up to date with Ron's journey, so the best way for that to happen is to visit Caring❤Bridge (Click Here).
 
As this time, Ron is not receiving visitors.  If you would like to send wishes with a card or note, here is his address:
Ron Helmuth
St. Luke's Hospital
PPH918
Bethlehem, PA  18015
 
I do not have words to describe the efforts of the team last week (Mike Long, Jeff Kiscka and Jean Searfoss) to bring Ron home, except to say Thank you!  This is why I "do Rotary!"  To all of my fellow members, "Do not ever hesitate to reach out to each other when in need."  We are a community that cares.  We truly do know how to make a difference. 
 
YIRS,
Plan-it Janet

ARM SPAGHETTI DINNER MAY 10TH!!!
Our Audrey Rafferty Memorial Spaghetti Dinner is set for May 10th, at the Cathedral Church of the Nativity. For the flyer click HERE.
While this is a social and fun event for club members, it is also a fundraiser.
 
We can use your help in many ways:
 
SPONSOR: If you would like to be a table sponsor ($40 for business card size ad) please contact Val Walk* if you have not already done so.
 
RAFFLE: We are in need of baskets to be raffled the night of the Spaghetti Dinner. Please contact Val Walk* or Marianne Aronson (mcaronson@verizon.net 484-221-8518) if you will be able to donate a basket. Gift Cards would also be great as part of the raffle.
 
TICKETS: The success of the Spaghetti Dinner is based on ticket sales. I will be distributing 6 tickets to each Club member as soon as possible, hoping that you will be able to sell a minimum of 6. (Price: $10.00 adult; $5.00 child). Please don't wait until you have the physical ticket in hand- sales can start at any time. If you wish to purchase the tickets and donate them back to the club, please let Val* know.
 
DESSERTS: Our diners always enjoy the home-made desserts. Please consider making and bringing a dessert to the Dinner. Something in a single-serve size is preferred.
 
VOLUNTEERS: Everyone's help will be needed the day/night of May 10th. Sign-ups are available:  Audrey Rafferty Memorial Spaghetti Dinner.   Volunteer shifts are scheduled in a way to allow everyone time to relax and enjoy Butch's "Sunday Gravy".
