On Mentoring: Lessons Learned During an 80-Year Journey

Lancaster-South Rotarian Chuck Sawicki is overjoyed to announce the launch of his new book “On Mentoring: Lessons Learned During an 80-Year Journey”. In this book , Chuck shares his intuitive personal mentoring style that goes beyond the old “one size fits all” model. It demonstrates the benefits of connecting people and communities.

Most of of us want to help our community, most of us want to create meaningful change, and most of us want to teach those around us the skills we have picked up along the way. But sadly, most of us aren’t quite sure where to start. Chuck is certain this book will assist you in that effort.

Click here to purchase the book on Amazon. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Rotary Foundation. 

Service Above Self Meet Up Group

The Rotary Club of Mechanicsburg North has created a Meetup group called Service Above Self to engage the community in supporting fundraisers and service activities with their club.  There is no fee for joining the group and membership is open to anyone.  Check out the Service Above Self Meetup by going to:

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.
