2018 Rotary Foundation Dinner

If service is the beating heart of Rotary, then the Rotary Foundation is its very lifeblood. It is in and through the Foundation that we are able to support projects locally and throughout the world. It is through the Foundation that Rotary is made real in the lives of millions: working for peace, supporting clean water and sanitation projects, providing for maternal and child health programs. This is all a result of Rotarians throughout the world generously sharing their resources.
Join us Thursday, November 8, 2018 at the Country Club of York (1400 Country Club Road, York, PA 17403) as we celebrate our Rotary Foundation and our achievements during the past year. Cocktail hour from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. Dinner and speaker from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Cost is $50 per person. Registration deadline is November 1, 2018.
You don’t want to miss our speaker Dr. Anne Mathews! She is a member of the Rotary Club of Columbia East in South Carolina and has served as Vice President of Rotary, a Trustee of the Rotary Foundation, trainer for District Governor elects, chair of the elections committee for the Rotary International President and many other positions. Her own service work includes projects in Kenya, South Africa, India and Ghana. She is by profession an educator, having taught at all levels from High School to University and has spoken in all 50 states and 35 different countries about the Rotary Foundation.

The Bet Was ON!

Carlisle Rotarians had a friendly wager on the football game between Penn State and Ohio State on September 29: The losing fans would wear the winning team's colors at the next Rotary meeting.  It was a heartbreaker, but the Buckeyes were victorious and the Nittany Lion fans good-naturedly donned the Ohio State garb for the meeting.  And the shout of "Just wait 'til next year!" echoed throughout the room!

Eye Care Vocational Training Team

One small part of the recent Eye Care Vocational Training Team to Malawi was providing low vision care to people with albinism. Here are photos of a few of our patients who received photochromatic spectacles, sunglasses with a unique tint just for them, sunscreen, and a telescope to improve distance vision. Rotary Club of Lancaster, with partner clubs Elizabethtown, Mechanicsburg North, Lancaster Penn Square, and Northern Lebanon County, sponsored this Global Grant project that included training of local eyecare practitioners in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma, strabismus, albinism, diabetes, and a few other maladies. Ten Rotarians from our district, or friends of Rotary, were joined by Danish colleagues to complete this amazing project. 

Road Clean-Up Crew

In early October  of 2018, the York-East Rotary Club participated in a road clean-up crew. One of the group found a $1 bill and gave it as a Happy Dollar at the next club meeting!
