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 annual Wine and Food Festival is quickly becoming a must-attend event, with thousands of participants local wineries and brewers, great music and artisan craft vendors. This event enables 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.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Spring-Ford Rotary annual Wine, Beer, and Food Festival has been cancelled for 2020. We're finalizing a date for October 2021.

Our original volunteer date of April 29th has been cancelled, but Operation Backpack (now called Operation 143) is still providing food to school children in need. They have indicated their greatest need right now is food as local grocery stores are no longer stocked due to high demand. Please consider making purchases off of their Amazon Wish List (https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1D5TJS8LCHVUV?ref_=wl_share&fbclid=IwAR129MCI2O8spPfdS4Bj28u2Tm-VYOy-WkYCdVpVke0VnzTb1nK5Capurg8 ). You can sort by priority to see what they are in most need of. During checkout you can select to have the food delivered directly to their address, and you can also write a message on the gift receipt to let them know it came from you/Rotary.
Dear fellow Rotarians,
This will be my final newsletter as president for this year. I have enjoyed serving as your president and I will miss the responsibility. Thank you to all Rotarians and our board for your encouragement and support during the year. I would have liked to have done more but I do look forward to continuing to serve on the board and help in anyway that I can to strengthen our Rotary club and community.
 I look forward to working with Dan White our new president. I know that he will be a good president, he was very instrumental this past year. Please extend to Dan the same courtesy and help you did to me.
 
Please be advised that we will not be meeting in the country club until further notice.Ira will let us know when the country club will re-open .This is for everyone’s safety and good health. I look forward to seeing everyone as soon as possible. I know we miss not being together as a Rotary club.
 
Please keep the following in mind:

1. We will meet on Zoom when we have a speaker. Dan White will send everyone a link.
2.If anyone is having difficulties paying their dues for Rotary because of unemployment issues, please communicate with Bill our treasurer. We do not want this to be a burden for you.
3. The board approved a contribution of $1000 to support Project Outreach through Concerts for a Cause. The money came from the sales of the duck tickets.
4. The board approved a gift of $350 to help Megan and Christopher Kudela, friends of Chris Laskey who lost their home in a fire, and  Christopher is recovering in the hospital.
5. The board voted to lower our board members to nine members. Our club will vote for the final approval.
6. The board voted to cancel our Beer Wine and Food Festival for 2020. This is for everyone’s safety and well-being during this pandemic. We will reschedule for the fall of 2021.
7. Please support the Rotary T-shirt fundraiser.
8. We will have a board meeting on Zoom Wednesday, June 24 at 11 o’clock.
 
I hope all are well and safe trying to stay in good health and sheltering at home.As we take care of ourselves and our families let us also keep in mind those who are most vulnerable and alone. Please think about reaching out to those are by themselves ,or need help ,and need a friend. Consider a phone a call or e-mail or a note offering your support and encouragement, and anything else that they might need.
 
Now maybe more than ever it is good to apply our Rotary four-way test in all circumstances, and with all people. Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned?  Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned? And to always put “Service Above Self”

Let us remain prayerful and hopeful for the world and all people, for their health, safety, well-being, and future.
Let us continue to remain thankful for our loved ones and for what we have received. We are most grateful for those who are on the front line, helping to save lives and keep us healthy, all medical personnel.
Stay safe, stay healthy. Be hopeful, by helpful.
