Celebrate Teachers Making an Impact

Join WITF and Rotary 7390 Tuesday, May 24 at 6pm at the WITF Public Media Center in Harrisburg as we host the 2022 Teacher Impact Awards Banquet. Help us make this a special in-person event honoring dedicated teachers.

The buffet style hors d’oeuvres banquet is open to the public and recognizes outstanding professionalism, classroom leadership, and significant contributions made by teachers across our region during this past year. The event also provides an opportunity for the community to say “Thank You” to our educators for their commitment and dedication to our students.

We’ll present awards to seven K-12 teachers in public and private schools in the Rotary District’s seven county area which includes: Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry, and York. Plus, we’ll screen special video profiles of each educator highlighting their exemplary work in the classroom.

Tickets are $35 per person. Tickets must be purchased by May 18. Reserve your spot now!

Fundraiser for Polio

In today's society, bikers often get a bad rap. Previously, bikers were rough and tumble people that were part of a gang. That is no longer the case. Many bikers ride for recreation, and are productive members of society. They even do rides to raise awareness and money for charitable causes.
One of the causes supported by motorcycling Rotarians is the eradication of Polio.  Many of the rides in which we participate also serve as a means to raise money for PolioPlus. 
This particular fundraiser is designed to raise money over most of this riding season, and I ask for your support.  Click here to support this effort! 
You donation will be matched by the Gates Foundation two to one, and will count for your Paul Harris points.
Thanks for your support.
PDG John Kramb

Updates to Rotary Liability Insurance Starting July 1

The current insurance program policies are expiring on 1 July 2022, and Risk Management is working on renewing them for the 2022-23 policy year. New policies will be purchased to provide continuous coverage and we will strive to maintain coverage as broad as the expiring policies.

Here are some insights provided to us during the initial stage of the renewal process:

Communicable Diseases Exclusion: The 2022-23 general liability policy likely will again contain a communicable diseases exclusion applicable to COVID-19.

Liquor Liability Coverage: The 2022-23 general liability policy likely will contain an endorsement that excludes coverage for “bodily injury or property damage caused by, in whole or in part, alcoholic beverages sold, served, or furnished while any liquor license is required and is not in effect." The current general liability policy provides liquor liability coverage and does not have restrictions such as this. In anticipation of this change, please verify whether a liquor license is required as part of your event and apply early if you determine one necessary. PLEASE NOTE: Our District insurance chair spoke to RI regarding this policy change. Their response is this: To speak using layman’s terms, it means the policy contains an endorsement that excludes coverage for incidents where a liquor license was required but wasn’t obtained in advance of the event.

Insurance Marketplace Conditions: The insurance marketplace has proven challenging. Insurance companies continue to raise their rates due to the increasingly frequent occurrence of catastrophic losses (severe storms, tornados, and wildfires) and the monetarily punitive amounts of damages being handed down by juries. We expect that this will affect insurance assessments and the Program. A premium credit will be issued due to the Program's favorable history as far as losses, and this will in part mitigate increases in premium.

Join with Rotary to promote the power of vaccines to protect children and save lives

During World Immunization Week, 24-30 April, let’s advocate for polio eradication and the importance of vaccines to the health and well-being of our communities.
Vaccines are one of the greatest advances of modern medicine. They’re safe, effective, and save millions of lives each year. Our progress in the fight to end polio is proof that vaccines work.
The Global Polio Eradication Initiative estimates that the polio vaccine has saved more than 20 million children around the world from paralysis. We need to continue vaccinating children against polio, because as long as the poliovirus circulates anywhere, it is a threat everywhere.
Here’s how you can support Rotary’s efforts during World Immunization Week:
  • Use the World Immunization Week Toolkit for graphics and sample posts to share on social media with the hashtags #EndPolio and #VaccinesWork. 
  • Donate to PolioPlus to help Rotary and our partners deliver polio vaccines to vulnerable children. Or start an online fundraiser using Raise for Rotary and share it with your friends, colleagues, and family members. All contributions will be matched 2-to-1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Rotary districts can give District Designated Funds (DDF) to PolioPlus to help meet our goal of raising $50 million each year to eradicate polio.

York-North Summerfest

York-North Rotary will be hosting a Summer Festival at PeoplesBank Park on June 11 from 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., to fund “Math is a Superpower”. The festival will feature live music, food, wine, beer, spirits, small games of chance and more will be featured.

Graduates of this program will then qualify to enroll in the Manufacturing Pathway Training Program, provided by the Manufacturers’ Association. Employment opportunities, with the Manufacturers’ Association membership companies, will become available following successful completion of both courses. Math as a Superpower will positively impact individuals, employers, and our community. The 8- week course, will meet two times per week from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., beginning September 20, 2022. The classes will be held at Career Link, 841 Vogelsong Road.
Rotary York-North has been in existence for over 30 years, providing service above self to local and international communities. Some successful programs to date are:

  • Building an all-inclusive playground and supporting the Rotary Baseball field at Cousler Park

Eastern York County Uses Grant to Help Library

The Rotary club of Eastern York recently applied for and received grant money to sponsor the new Kreutz Creek Library. The library moved out of an old trailer to its new location in the renovated building formerly used at the Hellam Township Police and municipal office. The club purchased mostly educational items and other items such as white boards,  Nilo multi-activity childrens play table with stools, toy storage bags, storage cart with trays, and a toaster oven. The cost was $4,318 for items purchased for the library. The club was reimbursed $2,159. The total approved grant was $5,000.
Pictured with the four way test sign from left to right is Rotarian John Mann who facilitated the purchasing and application of grant, Library Manager Jennifer Johnson, and Club presenting Sharon Stoner. 
The picture in the Children’s section is also Jennifer Johnson as she gave our club the tour of the new library. 

Lancaster Presents Wheels & Wings 5K

The 5th running of this annual 5K benefit event is totally on the campus of Brethren Village directly across from the Lancaster Airport.  The looped route winds around the lightly traveled community roads.  With minimal elevation changes this will prove to be a fast and enjoyable course.  Held rain or shine, the event will be professionally chip timed by Second Wind Race Timing.

Join us in beautiful Lancaster County just south of Lititz for this kick-off event to The Rotary Club of Lancaster’s Wheels and Wings Festival into the afternoon on the grounds of the Airport.

This race is a fundraiser. The proceeds of Wheels & Wings and 5k support the Rotary Club of Lancaster’s Summer Youth Experience. The summer program, funded in partnership with the United Way of Lancaster, supports more than a thousand city youth between the ages of five through seventeen. The program addresses the “achievement gap” and gives them fun things to do that develop leadership skills and helps prevent the “summer slide” in school.  Benefits also support other service programs of our Club locally, nationally and globally through Rotary International, a network of over 32,000 clubs in 200 plus countries.

Women in Rotary Committee
A top priority for Rotary is growing and diversifying our membership to make sure we reflect the communities we serve.  Currently just 28% of Rotary Members in District 7390 are women and even fewer are in leadership positions.  As we welcome Rotary International’s first woman president Jennifer Jones, lets plan activities to not only attract more women into Rotary but celebrate women Rotarians throughout our District and beyond. Those activities can include business networking, service, leadership development and FUN!  Anyone is welcome to join regardless of gender orientation.
