Welcome to the Quakertown Rotary Website.

Quakertown Rotary is an "Idea in Action." A fellowship of community-minded individuals committed to the ideal of “Service Above Self”, individually and collectively, as the basis for success and happiness.

Quakertown Rotary members share in the opportunity to serve the community in an organized effort. We believe in giving back to the community from which we have benefited.

Guests, fellow Rotarians, and new members are always welcomed.

Please Join us.

To All Rotary District 7430 Rotarians,

COVID-19 is impacting us all in our personal, professional and Rotary lives.  We must base our decisions about Rotary activities on the health and safety of our members and compliance with government and health regulations. Even though we may not be able to conduct the usual weekly in person meetings, many of our clubs are leading or participating in food and other relief programs in their communities.  These efforts will likely be continuing through the balance of this Rotary year and into the future.

With this in mind, the following are guidelines for all Rotary District 7430 activities:
·         All guidelines set forth by the Governor, counties and other authorized persons in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the CDC should be followed.
·         Should any Rotarian be diagnosed with or have symptoms that they suspect to be consistent with COVID-19, that Rotarian shall:
o   Not participate in any Rotary event that involves a personal appearance at the event 
o   Report their diagnoses or symptoms to the Rotarian supervising any program in which they have participated in-person within fourteen (14) days before the diagnoses or occurrence of symptoms.

We also suggest that you adopt guidelines for your clubs that reflect the current health crisis.

Yours in Rotary Service,
DG Herb Klotz & DGE Janet Kolepp

Quakertown Rotary Members,

At the start of the new Rotary year, we all know that we are in “unique” circumstances. As a Club, we will continue to abide by CDC and the RI and District guidelines laid out by DG Janet Kolepp as we explore how and when we can safely resume in-person meetings. In the interim, our online meetings will continue to serve as our vehicle for member engagement.

What has not changed is our passion as a club for service in the community. From our continued support of the Quakertown Food Pantry, to members stepping up to help our exchange student at Last Chance Ranch, or partnering in provisioning a school dormitory in Nigeria, we will continue to find ways to help those in our community and around the world. As we approach our centennial in 2024, Quakertown Rotarians, past and present, can be proud of all that we have accomplished and can look ahead to doing our part to build a better world.

Yours in Rotary,
Bill Tuszynski

 

With uncertain access to Pfaff Elementary School, we’ve decided to go virtual for 2020. We know you will miss the smiling volunteers, fabulous post-race grub, and generous awards. You might even miss the hills, but we guess less so. But fear not! We plan to be back better than ever on Saturday April 3, 2021! 

You pick the route. Go to USA Track & Field’s website, click on MapIt and create your own course. You can even run the actual course, as the 10 miler is USATF Certified. Route maps are posted here. The courses will NOT be marked and you are on your own to not get lost. Run anytime between November 21 through December 6, which includes the Thanksgiving Holiday. DO NOT run the race route on a school day.

Record your race results and email them to RD Bill Tuszynski at wtuszynski@verizon.net before 8PM on December 7 to be included. Feel free to enclose a picture of your GPS watch and let us know if you ran the “real” course. We will not have shirts or awards to keep fees low.

Why run?  Why not? This race helps fund Quakertown Rotary’s community service projects, especially those focused on youth. Ex[lore this website to learn more about who we are and what we do.

Either download and print the app or go to www.pretzelcitysports.com for online registration.
