Welcome to Spring-Ford Rotary!
Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
 
We are very proud of the positive impact that the Spring-Ford Rotary Club is making toward a better community here and a around the world.  
 
While we are constantly working on projects to help our community, our larger signature events include the Annual Pancake Breakfast Buffet and our annual Adopt-A-Family program, both of which help numerous local organizations and families.
 
Our new Wine and Food Festival is quickly becoming a must-attend event, with thousands of expected participants, will enable us to provide funding for even more needed projects and local organizations.
 
While our focus is on helping our community, we are also a fun, energetic group of area business professionals. Our weekly meetings provide an opportunity for us to listen to interesting speakers from many local organizations, and to build strong, long-lasting friendships.
 
We welcome all who would like to join our efforts to continue making our community a better place to live and work.

  Wine Beer and Food Festival is this week.  Tickets can be boughth online or at the meeting on Wednesday.  
By the way, did I mention: ask someone to a meeting!  
 
Congratulations to Marc Umstead, winner of $817 from the rolling pot, and one Ace of Spades playing card, suitable for framing!  Plus, Dan Kerr gets to draw a card next week for the Rolling Pot, because I forgot to buy a new deck of cards.  Mea culpa!  Anyway, we have a new deck of cards now.
 
Outcome of the Board Meeting:  Hurricane Harvey Relief.  All the Duck Money we have received (about $1,200) as a result of our club's exemplary efforts is going to be forwarded to a Rotary Club in the Houston area which is gathering funds for Hurricane Harvey Relief, identified to us by the District.  We Rotarians, acting together, can do more for people in need than if we acted alone.   Well done, Springford Rotarians!
 
Corporate Memberships have been approved!  Cost is going to be about $1700 annually.  See Damian or Bill B. for applications.  Get your corporation involved.  
 
If you have a suggestion for a non-profit group to receive funds when we distribute funds after the Wine & Beer Festival, please put the name of the organization and a contact person name and contact information on a piece of paper, and give it to one of the members of the committee who will make recommendations to the Board.  The committee members are: Tom Smith, Dave Akers, Dan White and Paul Neff.
 
Words of wisdom:   Planning is the second-hardest thing in the world.  The hardest is not having a plan.
 
Have a great day and week, Rotarian!

Malissa Delibertis came to speak to us last week.  I asked her to write a short note for our bulletin.
 
Blue Lives Matter Fitness is a registered 501c3 Non-Profit Organization for law enforcement officers seriously injured in the line of duty and for families of officers that have died in the line of duty. This will help these individuals lead a healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally, helping them through their times of need. Our goals include raising money which will be used to purchase gym memberships, personal training sessions, scholarships, help with medical bills and whatever they may need.
Our first big fundraiser will be a golf outing held on October 16, 2017 at Brookside Country Club in Pottstown, Lisa Tuozzolo will be attending to speak about her husband Sgt Paul Tuozzolo who was killed in the line of duty last November and How Blue Lives has helped her and her family. Anyone is encouraged to purchase a dinner ticket if they do not wish to golf. There will be many great raffles and prizes for all!  For more information please contact,  Malissa Delibertis,  484--942-7641,  bluelivesfitness@gmail.com.
