District 7390 Launches Polio Plus Society

CONGRATULATIONS ROTARIANS - This week Rotary International President Holger and Rotary Foundation Chair K. R. Ravindran announced that the African region has been certified free of the wild poliovirus.  This has been a decades long effort across 47 countries of the African region and would not have been possible without the efforts of Rotarians around the world and our partners to create a polio free world.
 
Rotarians in District 7390 have been committed over the past 30 years to raising funds to immunize children worldwide and our efforts are paying off.  You should be proud of the difference that Rotary have made in the lives of millions of children by eliminating this dreadful disease.
 
I want to thank you for your past efforts and ask that you recommit to helping us raise funds to finish Rotary’s number one initiative of eradicating polio.  Rotary is still committed to raising $50 million a year for this effort.
 
As such, we are launching the District 7390 Polio Plus Society and are inviting you to join our efforts to continue to raise funds to eradicate polio.  To become a member of the District 7390 Polio Plus Society you are asked to commit to making an annual donation of $100 or more to The Rotary Foundation’s Polio Plus Fund until the last two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan, are certified free of the wild polio virus. 
 
We hope that with your commitment in joining the District 7390 Polio Plus Society, we will make a significant increase in our contributions to the eradication of polio.
 
Click here to print a copy of the PolioPlus Society membership form.  Please complete the membership form and send it to District Office.  Donations may be made online at www.rotary.org/donate and select the Polio Plus Fund or through your Rotary Club.  If you make it online, you can set it up as a recurring donation.

59th RMB Event Held August 20

The Rotary Clubs of Carlisle and Carlisle Sunrise hosted a very successful and well run 59th RMB event overall and second Zoom networking meeting on Thursday, August 20 with 19 Rotarians and guests attending from six District 7390 clubs (Carlisle, Carlisle, Sunrise, Hanover, Harrisburg, Harrisburg Keystone, and Mechanicsburg North).  Michelle Crowley Hornick from the Greater Carlisle Chamber of Commerce and a representative of the Small Business Development Center gave an update on the business situation in our area and the impact Covid-19 continues to have on it as well as the resources available to help businesses deal with it.  Scott Stevens, the master of the Circle and RMB District 7390 Chair, ran the event a little like "Hollywood Squares" and everyone had a chance to talk about their business or project.  Stay tuned for our next RMB event.

 

Hanover hosted 6th Annual Tastfest Event

On March 6, 2020, the Rotary Club of Hanover hosted their 6th annual Tastefest event – the Club’s largest fundraiser – about two weeks before COVID19 closures in PA.  The evening was designed to celebrate the area’s independently owned restaurants, bakeries, and specialty beverage businesses while raising funds for local non-profits. Always a sold-out event at a total of 400 tickets but the majority of the money is raised through sponsorships, including major contributor, Hanover-area State Farm agents (Sue Beckner, Ryan California, and Devon Ellis).  This year, funds were distributed to primarily benefit Hanover Area Council of Churches -Ruth's Harvest, Hanover YWCA Safe Home, Olivia’s House, Roots for Boots, Jessica & Friends, and the Family Readiness Group of the Hanover Armory. Over the past six years, the Rotary Club of Hanover has raised an average of over $33,000 at each Tastefest event.
 

Four Way Test ESSAY Contest

Time to start planning your club’s 4-Way Test ESSAY Contest.  Unlike just about everything else in our lives, a written essay is one thing that COVID-19 cannot reach.  Sitting down at a home computer and writing an essay is safe and can be done in a socially distant manner (maybe even without a mask!).  So if any of your club’s projects are delayed or cancelled this year, this is a great time to consider starting an Essay Contest.
 
We have a fresh, new essay prompt this year:  Is it the Truth? – How I Define What is True in My Life.  We are looking forward to receiving essays from 9 th grade high school students which address questions like:  What is true?  Where is truth found?  Is truth important?  Is truth relative? Submissions for the 2020-21 District 7390 contest are due March 5, 2021.  Contest rules, critical dates, and information for both Rotarians and Students are available at the District 7390 Website:  https://www.rotary7390.org/page/four-way-test-essay-contest.  Any questions or requests for further information can be directed to project chair, Steven Grubb, at stevengrubb@comcast.net.

Fundraiser for the Rotary Foundation

I am going on my annual cross-country motorcycle ride, and would like to raise money for Polio Plus. The ride will be anywhere from 8,000 to 10,000 miles long, depending on how sore my hindquarters get.

As a polio survivor, its an important project for me. I have been blessed to visit India four times to participate in National Immunization Days.

Please support this cause for me!

West Shore Rotary Flags for Heroes Fundraiser

Our Hero
We all have someone we look up to. Perhaps it's a family member or friend who inspires us to be a better person, or someone who lives "Service Above Self" in their daily life. Our HERO. 
 
The Rotary Club of the West Shore invites you to honor that person through our premier fundraising event, Flags for Heroes. By sponsoring a flag in your hero's name, you will join with hundreds of others in making a bold statement that says:
 
We Honor you, Hero.
We Encourage you, Hero.
We Recognize you, Hero.
We Offer thanks to you, Hero.
 
Don't miss your chance to be part of this inaugural event! The powerful and emotional display of sponsored flags will take place the week of November 8-15, 2020, along the Taylor Bridge Bypass (1250 Camp Hill Bypass).
