Dear Rotarians,
The District 7430 Training Assembly is fast approaching. It is a chance for club officers, committee chairs and assistant governors to further develop leadership skills and refine strategies to achieve their goals for the upcoming Rotary year.  It is also GREAT for ALL Rotarians - especially newer Rotarians. Learn more about Rotary programs, increase your leadership skills and learn best practices from “seasoned” Rotarians.
District Training Assembly is also a fantastic opportunity to meet and connect with other Rotarians from throughout the District.  
Training assemblies like this are the best way to help your club be even more successful in 2017-18. Attendees will discover tips to take your Clubs to the next level. Breakout sessions are planned for:
  • Strategic Planning
  • Effective Social Media to Attract Members
  • Fundraising
  • Club Treasurer and Secretary Sessions
  • International Grants
  • Hands On Club Central Training
An information packed afternoon is planned for all Rotarians, we are confident that everyone will go home with something they can use to make your club better.
Register NOW for this important event! Registration fee of $35 includes continental breakfast and lunch. 
I look forward to seeing you all at our District Training Assembly on the afternoon of Saturday May 20th 2017, so we can prepare to do “Good in our Communities” with the knowledge and skills that are provided at the District Training Assembly.
Yours in Rotary Service,
Richard C. Gromis
District Governor Elect
District 7430

Rotary Foundation Announcement
This year marks the 100th anniversary of Rotary Foundation.  The Foundation was formed in 1917 arising from Rotarian Arch Klumph’s idea to form an endowment fund dedicated to “doing good in the world”.
Bethlehem Morning Star has always been a supporter of Rotary Foundation.  Over the past two years, our club has been one of the few clubs within the District to achieve 100% participation, as all club members have made a contribution to the Foundation each year.
The Foundation Committee asks that each Rotarian consider a minimum gift of $100 to Rotary Foundation this year.  If you are unable to commit to $100, you may want to consider a contribution of $26.50 which was the original Foundation contribution. Any amount will be appreciated, and count towards 100% participation.
As the Rotary year ends on June 30, the Foundation Committee is asking that all contributions be made by June 1.  You can make your contribution by check or at the $2/week table when you sign in.  Checks should be made payable to “Rotary Foundation”, and given to Tom Hartzell at a weekly meeting.  Checks can also be mailed to Tom Hartzell, 1341 Biafore Avenue, Bethlehem, PA 18017.
If you are not sure if you have made a contribution during this Rotary year, you can check with Tom or Sue Burnett.
Why should you make a contribution to Rotary Foundation?  Because you are a Rotarian! 
Thanks to everyone in Bethlehem Morning Star for their continued support of Rotary Foundation.
