Uptown York Awards Grants

Uptown York Rotary Club awarded a total of $3,500 in grants to four nonprofit organizations to help support the York community. This is the first time in the club’s eight-year history that grant applications were solicited from the public, and the Community Giving Committee is excited to announce the results.
 
Susquehanna Service Dogs (SSD) was awarded $500 towards the education of trainers and handlers in York County. SSD provides service dogs for mobility, autism, post-traumatic stress, seizure response, hearing impairment, facilities, in-home service and companionship.
 
Bell Socialization Services was the recipient of a $1,000 grant to stock over-the-counter medications and diabetes monitoring kits to help alleviate general physical ailments for adults, children and infants in residence at Bell Family Shelter. Having cough or cold medicine available for an adult going to a job or housing interview can make a huge difference for these families.
 
Edgar Fahs Smith STEAM Academy, part of York City School District, received $1,000 towards an outdoor classroom designed by the students, filled with native plants that will be transferred to community gardens in York City. Students who attend the STEAM Academy live in urban settings with limited access to hands-on gardening and sustainable living opportunities. Participating in this project will educate the students on creating and maintaining a healthy community for both the native wildlife and residents of the City of York.
 
York County Literacy Council (YCLC) was awarded a $1,000 grant for materials and supplies for their Partners in Conversation class. The class gives an opportunity for individuals to improve their English-speaking skills and build their confidence in daily interactions. The materials include an English Ready newspaper and app for tablets that YCLC uses in the class. With significant changes in the demographics of York County, more individuals have been seeking YCLC’s services.
 
All grants approved by the Uptown York Rotary Club support programs that service York and the York County community. Many of the funded initiatives support Rotary’s Six Areas of Focus: Maternal and Child Health, Basic Education and Literacy, Economic and Community Development, Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution, Disease Prevention and Treatment, Water and Sanitation.
 
Uptown York Rotary Club attracts a diverse group of professionals who share a passion for giving back to our community and making a difference in the world. Our service focus areas are downtown revitalization, environmental sustainability, and community and youth development.
 
Although we are serious about our service, we are a fun-loving and welcoming group!  As a happy hour club, we gather weekly to celebrate our service, share professional and personal successes, and learn about businesses, organizations and programs that impact the quality of life in York City, York County and the global community. Uptown York Rotary Club meets at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays on the second floor of Rockfish Public House, 110 N. George Street, York, Pennsylvania 17401.

Southern York County Golf Tournament

York Promotes America's Promise

On Friday, 5/17/2019 as part of the Rotary Club of York America's Promise initiative, three 2nd grade classes from Alexander Goode Elementary school enjoyed a field trip to the Wrightsville Municipal Authority Water & Wastewater plants. They learned how water taken from the Susquehanna river is made safe to drink and how wastewater from the town is treated so that it can be safely put back into the river. To cap off the day, the students were treated to lunch at the Wrightsville Fire & Rescue Company 41 and a tour of fire trucks.
 
Former Rotarian Philip Landis, Chairman of the Wrightsville Municipal Authority, and Rotarian Ken Cooper have done this yearly for at least 8 years.  The authority employees and volunteer fire fighters organize and do all the presentations.  It is not clear whether the children or the employees have the most fun - probably a toss-up.
 
Rotarians Eric Holmes, York City School Superintendent, and John Klinedinst, Authority engineer were among the guests who enjoyed the day.
 
The photo shows one of the classes getting educated on how potable water is 'rescued' from the Susquehanna river.

D7390 Passport Club

Do you know someone who wanted to join Rotary but could not make the commitment to make the meetings?

Do you know someone who was a Rotarian but their life changed in such a way that they could no longer make the meetings?

Do you know someone who would rather be regionally vs. locally active?

A NEW CONCEPT in Rotary!

Introducing: DISTRICT 7390 ROTARY PASSPORT CLUB

We are pleased to announce the opportunity to participate in the organization of the new District 7390 Rotary Passport Club.  A passport club is technically a club in Rotary District 7390, but its members attend meetings of other clubs, help in their service projects and fundraisers, and do all the things club based Rotarians do, except on their own schedule.  Passport Clubs are a perfect solution for people who wish to be Rotarians but do not have the flexible schedule to permit attendance at regular meetings. While the focus of membership recruitment for the club is on new members, the Passport Club is also suitable for Rotarians who would otherwise leave a club due to time commitments.   

Members of the District 7390 Rotary Passport Club are people living or working in our District who want to make a difference in their communities locally and globally in a way that fits within their time, talent, and finances, as well as with their family, work, and life commitments.

To facilitate this, the District 7390 Rotary Passport Club only holds a few in-person meetings a year.  In lieu of weekly meetings, members are encouraged to engage in humanitarian service projects with other Rotary clubs, and attend other Rotary club meetings and events, in times and locations that works best for them and their families! Club business will be handled electronically and/or by video or teleconferences.  

District 7390 Rotary Passport Club members are full Rotary members, with the same privileges and rights as Rotarians who are members of traditional clubs.

Membership in our club provides you with a passport to visit and work with any other Rotary Club in the world, and to take part in activities, programs, and projects that interest and engage you. Everyone who has a connection with District 7390 and wants to enjoy service is welcome to apply!
