AREA 2 OUTREACH DOES IT AGAIN!!!
 
The 5 Area 2 Rotary Clubs (Bethlehem, Bethlehem Morning Star, Easton, Nazareth and Saucon Valley) gathered March 9th at Moravian College's Haupert Union Building in the 'Ole Book Shop' along with friends, family members, BASD acapella students, Victory House residents and volunteers from as far away as the Poconos and Lansdale. This Rotary Community Team packaged 40,000 meals for families in need in our Club areas.
 
Food Insecurity is a serious concern in all communities, no matter the demographics of the areas. One in five children in America face food insecurity. The end products are shared to food pantries throughout the Area 2 Rotary Clubs, principally Northampton County.  A fantastic effort with lots of fellowship and sharing. True to the Rotary Theme - ROTARY: BE TH INSPIRATION!  Be sure to put this on your calendar for next year.
 
Thank you to all who participated.

FIRST THURSDAY
Our First Thursday at the Artisan Wine & Cheese continues to attract more Rotarians including colleagues from the Saucon/Center Valley club. Additionally we had two guests who may be interested in becoming future Rotarians. Plan now to join us on April 7th for a relaxing time of Rotary fellowship.
 
The Wine & Cheese coupled with the assortment of hors d oeuvres is very appealing and tastes great!
