2021 District Conference


Come join us!

We are excited to be your guides as we set out exploring new opportunities together. Our path will take us into a world of leadership, learning, fellowship and fun! All from the comfort of your own home!

This exciting adventure will also include the opportunity to join with fellow Rotarians safely in service throughout the three districts!

Join together with us in our exploration.



Following Hurricane Maria in 2017, District 7390 raised $30,386.00 specifically for Puerto Rico recovery efforts. It took some time for us to identify an appropriate project and in January 2020 we sent a check in the full amount to the Jane Stern Community Libraries to cover recovery and operating costs at two of their satellite locations in Toa Baja and Mameyal. Unfortunately, COVID 19 has slowed the recovery process; schools and libraries have been operating on a spotty virtual basis which has slowed their progress in offering expanded programs.
We received a report dated March 16, 2021 showing a remaining balance of $13,025.94 along with plans to shortly return to a normal schedule where they can again offer school library programs during the day and community programs in the evenings that include language and literacy programs for adults, teens and children, along with early education play areas with books and toys, and reliable internet access for digital resources.
Rotary District 730 is recognized as a Major Sponsor at the Library’s main entrance and on their website, social media, and print material.

World Immunization Week 2021

World Immunization Week (WIW) 2021 comes as COVID-19 vaccines are being rolled out around the world, and vaccination is unprecedentedly the focus of daily news cycles and everyday conversations. The milestone, which will take place from Saturday, 24 April to Friday, 30 April, serves as a chance to broaden the conversation about the polio program’s contributions to global health, including its support of equitable COVID-19 vaccine rollout. This year’s community-wide WIW theme is “vaccines bring us closer,” which aims to build on the current public spotlight on vaccines and reach a wider audience beyond immunization partners with important messages about vaccine efficacy and safety.
The polio program delivers more than the polio vaccine. Polio health workers also respond to #malaria, #Ebola, #measles, and now #COVID19 – strengthening health systems and working toward improved health for all. #EndPolio #VaccinesWork

Special Deal for Donations to PolioPlus

The eradication of Polio is Rotary International's number one promise to the world. It is our largest global project. We have made much great progress over the years, yet there is still much to be done. The infrastructure of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (of which RI is a partner) has most recently been used to combat COVID. Now countries around the world are re-instituting Polio vaccinations for their children. And Rotary is there to help.

But it is intuitively obvious to the most casual observer that the effort needs money in order to keep going. So, I am asking you to make a special donation of at least $100 to the PolioPlus Fund. This would be over and above your normal annual donation to PolioPlus.

And, if you do, I will:
  • Personally obtain the commemorative coin (actually, I already have them)
  • Personally mount the coin in a coin display thing-a-ma-jig. (Actually, I already have these, too)
  • Personally purchase the padded envelop (news flash, I already have these, too)
  • Personally address the aforementioned padded envelop to you.  My personal handwriting is sure to be a collector’s item some day.
  • Personally mail you an official US Mint one dollar coin which commemorates the discovery of the Polio vaccine. (actually, my bookkeeper will mail it since the post office is on the way to work for her.)
So then, I buy the coin. I buy the coin display thing-a-ma-jig. I buy the padded envelope. I will hand address the envelop in nearly calligraphy-like perfection. Or at least legible enough for the post office. I pay for the postage.
And all you need to do is make a one-time contribution to PolioPlus. Over and above your normal PolioPlus donation.
Here is how you do it. Select or After you sign in, look in the upper right-hand corner of the home page for the DONATE button. Click that button and follow the easy-to-understand instructions. You will get Paul Harris points AND, more importantly, you will join thousands of Rotarians across the world in eradicating a horrible disease.

To get the coin, just email me a copy of your receipt from TRF to and I will get the coin in the mail to you, with my personal thanks. Oh. And this offer is limited to the first seventy-seven people who respond. That's all the coins I have left.

Join members of my club who have already made a special contribution to PolioPlus.
Join us in Rotary's number one mission! And thank you.

In tribute to Charles L. Cenkner, a respected community leader

The following tribute to PDG Chuck Cenkner was printed on Penn Live
Amid these times of political, social and healthcare concerns, we wanted to reflect on the loss of a Harrisburg area leader, Charles L. Cenkner. Chuck, who passed on Feb. 15, had an extensive background in finance. His calm, competent ways made him an ideal leader for the Capital Area Cosmopolitan Club, which he served as club Treasurer and Vice Chairman in 2020. He was especially active in its fundraising for diabetes projects, including the Setebaid Service Summer Camp for diabetic children in Pennsylvania. Setebaid has established the Charles Cenkner Memorial Fund to remember his life and legacy and is accepting contributions. Chuck lived in Shipoke, where his quiet, tireless manner made him a hero in helping to keep this neighborhood clean. Chuck was also active in Rotary, serving as District Governor in 2002-2003 and working diligently on efforts to eradicate polio globally. In 2011, he received Rotary’s Distinguished Service Award. We pray that Chuck finds peace and is happily reunited with the love of his life, Marilyn. William M. Dallam and friends of Chuck Cenkner

York-North Supports Our Daily Bread

Since April 13, 2020, the York-North Rotary Club has been supplying over 100 sandwiches per week to Our Daily Bread soup kitchen.  The soup kitchen provides breakfast and lunch to 150 – 200 people in York, and the York-North Rotary Club has been assisting them in this effort.  Fifteen club members have been taking turns every three weeks to make peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, package them (along with some cookies), and deliver them to Our Daily Bread.  These sandwiches are offered to everyone who visits the soup kitchen to take home with them, as a meal for later in the day.
At the one-year anniversary of this service to our community, the York-North Rotary Club has already delivered over 5000 sandwiches, along with coffee, oatmeal, potato salad, and other food staples.  After the COVID 19 guidelines are relaxed, the York North Rotary Club plans to continue to provide food staples and to volunteer from time to time to serve food at Our Daily Bread.
