President's Message 4-30-17
We were joined this week by Heidi Hoofer, Coordinator of Studies and Training at Pinebrook Family AnswersPinebrook Family Answers is a not for profit agency whose placement program works with children who are at risk of serious harm.  Pinebrook studies, approves and trains resource parents and provides continual support and assistance to the resource parents once they have a foster child placed with them. Children in foster care range in age from birth to 21.  Some have been placed because of family drug and alcohol problems and many are survivors of abuse or neglect. 
If any Rotarian is interested or knows of someone interested in learning more about becoming a Foster Parent, please reach out to Pinebrook Family Answers at 610-432-3919 or
This Thursday is First Thursdays @ 5:30 Rotary Means Business at the Artisan Wine Cellars.  Please invite a guest to come out for an evening of networking and to share Rotary.

Spaghetti Dinner Outstanding Success
I would like to extend a heartfelt note of gratitude to everyone who worked so diligently on Friday to make the Spaghetti Dinner a success.
A very special thanks goes out to those who worked for hours in the kitchen preparing the home-made sauce and salads.
Thank you also to Rotarians and their families who planned the event, sold tickets, cooked, baked, filled supplies, waited tables, washed dishes, and cleaned up.
Proceeds from this event help support our Community grants.
Thanks again!

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.
