Congratulations Mount Joy & Elizabethtown

Congratulations Rotary Club of Mount Joy and Rotary Club of Elizabethtown on achieving ShelterBox HERO recognition for Rotary Year 2022-2023.
Your support is very much appreciated. At the end of the Rotary Year, the clubs will be listed on our HERO page at
Gifts from clubs and individuals identifying as club members count toward ShelterBox HERO club recognition. A Bronze HERO recognition level is achieved at $1,000, Silver at $3,000 and Gold at $5,000 in total giving within the Rotary year. A club can ‘level up’ throughout the Rotary year.
We need help in your district, please consider becoming a Club Champion or Ambassador. Volunteer with ShelterBox USA
One way you can strengthen the awareness of ShelterBox is by making ShelterBox your Speaker Honorarium.  To thank your speakers, make a donation to ShelterBox in their name. 
ShelterBox has provided aid to over 2.25 million people since 2000, we could not have reached them without Rotary Clubs!

Congratulations Mount Joy & Elizabethtown

2022-2023 Four-Way Test SPEECH Contest

We are encouraging clubs to move forward with your Four-Way Test Speech Contests and send your Club contest winner to the District Mid-Levels. Students can register for the Mid-Levels by clicking here. Students MUST register for the Mid-Levels by January 15, 2023. The Mid Levels will be held in late February/early March 2023 (still finalizing a date).  Dates will be coordinated directly with the students.
Mid levels will continue to be virtual. This has worked so well for all concerned. The only push back on the virtual format is that families/coaches are not able to attend. But in keeping the STUDENTS at the center of this program, they benefit from having a closed environment and having the FULL ATTENTION of the prestigious judges. Also, in previous years, one area may have had 15 mid level entries and another area only had three entries. Some highly qualified students did not move forward because of their location. While less prepared students in other locations got to move forward. The virtual process allows for a more equitable competition. 
Please encourage your Club to participate in the Four Way Test Speech Contest this winter. We are looking forward to greater numbers this year.  Your help is much appreciated.

2022-23 Four-Way Test ESSAY Contest

It is time to start planning your club’s 4-Way Test ESSAY Contest.  We will, once again, be using the following prompt for this year’s contest:  Is it the Truth? – How I Define What is True in My Life
We are looking forward to receiving essays from 9th grade high school students which address questions like:  What is true?  Where is truth found?  Is truth important?  Is truth relative?
Submissions for the 2022-23 District 7390 contest are due February 20, 2023
Contest rules, critical dates, and information for both Rotarians and Students are available on the District 7390 Website.
Any questions or requests for further information can be directed to project chair, Steven Grubb, at

Membership Seminar - November 9

A Membership Seminar will be held Wednesday, November 9 at 7:30 p.m. with Patrick Eakes (Immediate Past Zone 33 Coordinator) on Impact clubs.
We will be recording this, if you are unable to attend.  Feel free to invite others who may be interested.
Presentation Topic: Zone 33 (Mid-Atlantic States) districts have been the most successful zone in starting new clubs in the USA during the past several years.  Impact clubs have greatly contributed to their new club growth. IMPACT clubs were formed to meet the needs of individuals who recognize their personal drive to serve but cannot commit to regular meetings. IMPACT started as a companion club (officially called a "satellite") recognizing the need for an organized structure and an opportunity to quickly perform service amongst individuals' busy schedules. Patrick Eakes will provide much more info on the IMPACT club model and answer your questions.
See you on November 9!

Annual Rotary Foundation Dinner - November 19



Carlisle Rotary Auction to Support Success By 6

The Rotary Club of Carlisle and the Rotary Club of Carlisle-Sunrise will host their annual holiday dinner and auction on Friday, December 2nd at the Comfort Suites in Carlisle. The proceeds from this event as explained in the auction brochure will support Success By 6; a United Way of Carlisle/Cumberland County program to help ensure that all children are prepared to succeed by the time they enter kindergarten. After a rigorous selection process conducted jointly by both club presidents, Success By 6 was selected based on its tremendous impact on the development of our youth within the community.
Rotarians can support this auction in one of two ways. First, by donating an auction item by contacting the Auction Chair, Bill Blankmeyer at or (717) 590-7229. Secondly, tax-deductible sponsorships can be made to support Success By 6.

Seeking Nominations for the 2025-2026 Rotary D7390 Governor

The time has come to begin the nominating process for our District Governor 2025-2026.  In this way we will continue our three-year projection for District 7390’s leadership. I encourage you to suggest a qualified candidate for the District Governor 2025-2026. 
Every club has an outstanding leader who could be a potential District Governor. Look around and ask yourself, who is that person in our club? It is the person who is a good leader, interested, involved, gives financially to Rotary and The Rotary Foundation and is helpful to other members. Ask that person about his or her interest in serving as District Governor. We all need to give encouragement and “plant the seed” for others to move forward.
When submitting a candidate for District Governor 2025-2026, the following must be submitted: the Club letter (on Club letterhead stating that the candidate has been endorsed and nominated by the Club) and the Governor Nominee Data Form (DG App). 
The District Governor is the officer of RI in the District, functioning under the general control and supervision of the RI Board. The Governor has responsibility for organizing new Clubs; strengthening existing Clubs; promoting membership growth; supporting The Rotary Foundation; planning and presiding at the District Conference, PETS and District Training Assembly; issuing a monthly newsletter; reporting promptly to RI; focusing attention on important Rotary issues; motivating Rotarians to participate in service activities; recognizing the outstanding contributions of Rotarians in the District; and many other related activities. The candidate should be aware of the qualifications, duties and responsibilities of a District Governor and must demonstrate willingness, commitment, and ability (physically and otherwise) to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of the office of Governor.    
Candidates must be well versed with the District 7390 Bylaws, revised May 2018, and its intent. Candidates must also be familiar with the Constitution and Bylaws of Rotary International as published in the 2022 Manual of Procedure.
Qualifications for a District Governor are specified in detail in the Bylaws of Rotary International as published in the Rotary Manual of Procedure (excerpts attached). These qualifications should be studied carefully by Club members and the prospective Rotarian candidate for District Governor, prior to a decision to suggest any member as a candidate.
Please keep in mind that it is each Club’s duty to the District and Rotary International to give serious consideration to suggesting candidates for District Governor. Your suggestion for District Governor 2025-2026 must be received in the District Office by December 9, 2022, to be considered by the Nominating Committee. Interviews for the 2025-2026 District Governor will be held Thursday, January 19, 2023, in the evening at PA Trauma Systems Foundation (Slatehill Business Center, 3907 Hartzdale Drive, Suite #702, Camp Hill, PA).
