Ron's Daily Threshold Prayer
 
Threshold - a point of entry or beginning.  For Ron, he has passed another threshold.  We are all better for his journey through our midst.  We will remember him with the love he shared with all of us.  Saturday, April 20, between 2:00 - 4:00pm you are invited to visit and remember with Ron's family at Cantelmi - Long Funeral Home, 500 Linden St, Bethlehem, PA.  A memorial service will take place next month at First Presbyterian Church Bethlehem (Details to come.)
 
At this week's meeting, April 18, we will welcome Todd Repsher, Director of Safety with Bethlehem Area School District.  Todd will be sharing "Safe to Say" program that is part of the Sandy Hook Promise that PA has instituted across the state. 
 
Next Thursday April 25, we will have the opportunity to visit TJ Elementary School.  This Rotary Road Trip was rescheduled from the coldest day of the year in January.   Our club will be hosted by Tracey Hirner, principal of Thomas Jefferson Elementary School, 404 E North St, Bethlehem, PA 18018, just a few blocks from our regular meeting place.  
 
Until then......
 
YIRS,
Plan-it Janet

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.
NOTE: WE ONLY HAVE ONE REGULAR MEETING THIS THURSDAY, APRIL 18,  AT MORAVIAN VILLAGE BEFORE THE DINNER. PLEASE GET YOUR TICKETS THEN IF YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE THEM.
 
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".
