I’m looking forward to a great week! I heard from MSR Bill Hunter; he’s away on vacation, but got the form to order T-Shirts, and I got a very enthusiastic response from him. “Cheryl, the Antigua Rotary Club wears these and they are great. Count me in.”
Last Thursday we heard from Tyler Schellenberger, a student at Moravian Academy, who experienced all the leadership training and camaraderie that happens at Camp Neidig each summer. As all the students do, she enthusiastically reaffirmed how important, and valuable, this experience is for building tomorrow’s leaders. We can be so proud that we are a part of this activity.
"Enthusiastic Camper!!!"  Tyler with the MSR Neidig team and President Cheryl
This Thursday, we’ll take time during the meeting to do some of the business of Rotary. We’ll break up into committees, talk about membership, and have some training on the website. We’re all busy, and so the more we know about how to utilize the electronic tools we have at our disposal through ClubRunner, and Rotary International, the more efficient, and effective, we can be!
I’m hoping you’ll all take some time to review the “Ethics in Business Award” form I’ve attached in the Downloads section; it is the nomination form for our new “Ethics in Business Award”Program. Beginning in September, we will be honoring local Bethlehem businesses who demonstrate through their everyday example that they embrace the ideals of the Rotary Four Way Test. They don’t have to be Rotarians, but perhaps if they’re not, we should be inviting them to become Rotarians – especially if they are living out their business life with integrity.
Please think about who you would nominate. You’ll have a month to consider who you’d like to honor; we’ll be making the announcement in late August.
Another note about Rotary’s Strike Out Hunger game at the Phillies on August 11; the men of Victory House would LOVE to attend this game! They have transportation, and room for 10. Perhaps you can’t go yourself, but would like to help one of their residents have the opportunity to see a major league baseball game. Perhaps you’re planning to go, and could purchase 1 more ticket for someone else. It’s the least we can do for all they have done in our years of partnership on Salute to The Troops and the Spaghetti Dinner. And remember, for each ticket you purchase, $10 comes back to the club as Foundation credits.
For more information, or to order tickets, call or email Gerry or Jill Long at 610-625-5105 or
PLEASE BRING A DONATION FOR OUR FOOD DRIVE. In honor of Past President Sharon’s contributions we will be collecting all summer to make a gift, and a difference, for New Bethany Ministries.
President Cheryl, Making A Difference
