RCH of Harrisburg Member Participates in

 Rotarian Fellowship Philanthropic Mission

The International Skiing Federation of Rotarians (North American chapter) supports “adaptive skiing”, making skiing and snowboarding available to physically and cognitively challenged people.
At its 2019 Annual Ski Week in Telluride, Colorado, Rotary Club of Harrisburg skiing member Bruce Grossman met with previously wounded veterans who were at Telluride Adaptive Sports.  For the wounded warriors this is an all-expense paid week of ski training. 
Rotarian Skiing Fellows were all very impressive with the wounded warriors’ determination to conquer another challenge.  The young lady shown above had been in the Air Force for 15 years when her body was exploded by an IED in Iraq. 
After her multi-year recovery, which included multiple replacements and reconstruction, she now uses her Masters’ degree in chemistry to treat skin disorders in chemotherapy patients.  She’s learning to snowboard for the fun and the challenge.
This year the Davis Boyd Memorial Foundation, a 501 C 3 charity, was established by the ISFR to support adaptive ski programs.  The ISFR raised $12,000 for Telluride Adaptive Sports.
To continue this good work, tax deductible contributions can be made to: DAVIS BOYD MEMORIAL FOUNDATION, 401 Woodbourbe Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21212.

Rotary Club of Lancaster South Contributes $10,000 to Two Capital Campaigns

Rotary Club of Lancaster South presented checks in the amount of $5000 each to the West Lampeter Township Community Foundation’s “We’re Taking the Field Capital Campaign” to improve Village Park in West Lampeter Township, and to the Southern End Community Association’s “Jump Into Local Recreation” Capital Campaign to significantly improve and renovate the outdoor swimming pool in Quarryville, PA.
Village Park is used by hundreds of children and families on any given night to participate in sports and recreation activities. The current fields were not designed or graded for organized sports and so several of the teams are unable to hold home games due to inadequate field conditions. The total project budget is $2.5 million, with a DCNR grant of $250,000 and a matching grant of $250,000 from West Lampeter Township already having been secured. Also, George and Pat Desmond have issued a $250,000 leadership challenge grant which will be matched dollar for dollar in the early stages of the campaign.
After 25 years of operation, the SECA pool has reached the end of its life. Each summer the pool is used by hundreds of children, families and adults from the Solanco School District and beyond for water safety, competitive swimming, recreation and family fun. Anyone can use the pool on a daily basis without having to pay an initiation fee or membership dues making it an affordable and convenient option for many in the community. The pool annually employs about 27 teens and young adults as swim instructors, life guards and front desk personnel. The total project budget is $650,000 with $428,000 raised so far by volunteers, area businesses, individuals and service organizations.
