Carlisle Rotary Online Auction to Support Safe Harbour

Passes for cooking classes, antique child’s desk, golf packages, sports memorabilia, gift cards galore, memberships, and so much more await you! These unique items are up for bid December 3-10 at https://www.32auctions.com/CarlisleRotaryAuction2021. This online charity auction is hosted by The Rotary Club of Carlisle and the Rotary Club of Carlisle-Sunrise as explained in the auction brochure.
 
Proceeds from this year’s auction benefit Safe Harbour, a non-profit organization that provides a continuum of housing and supportive services for homeless and nearly homeless individuals and families in our communities. “We are very thankful that the Rotary Clubs chose Safe Harbour this year,” says Scott Shewell, Safe Harbour’s President and CEO. “Our historic building requires a comprehensive renovation of our emergency shelter bathrooms to keep our residents safe and healthy. The projected cost of the renovations is $30,000.”
 
Rotary's goal for the auction is to surpass $20,000. And, things are off to a great start. More than $14,000 has already been raised through very generous sponsorships by Carlisle Rotarians. “Reaching our $20,000 goal through the online auction itself will depend on the community’s help and generosity,” says Carlisle Rotary Club President Geoff Mangelsdorf. “Local businesses have been very generous with their donations. We are hoping for maximum participation at our auction site or for people to simply send donations to provide support to Safe Harbour.”
 
David Kammerer, President of the Carlisle Sunrise Club, explains that over the past 20 years, Carlisle's two Rotary clubs have raised over $300,000 to support international water projects in Africa and Central America. He adds, “More recently, auctions have supported projects in the Carlisle community. In 2019, $20,000 was raised to support Domestic Violence Services of Cumberland and Perry Counties (DVSCP). Last year our first online auction raised $20,000 to support The Arc of Cumberland & Perry Counties (CPARC)”
 
Bill Blankmeyer, the Fundraising Chair for the auction notes the Carlisle Rotary Club Foundation is a 501(c) (3) organization, EIN: 16-1634172. If you have questions or would like to make a donation, please contact Blankmeyer at blankmeyer66@comcast.net or (717) 590-7229.

Seeking Nominations for District 7390 Governor 2024-2025

The time has come to begin the nominating process for our District Governor 2024-2025.  In this way we will continue our three-year projection for District 7390’s leadership. 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? Is it me? 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. 
 
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 2016 Manual of Procedure.
 
 
Please contact the District office (office@rotary7390.org or 717-854-7842) if would like more information about applying to be District Governor 2024-2025. 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 2024-2025 must be received in the District Office by December 10, 2021, to be considered by the Nominating Committee. Interviews for the 2024-2025 District Governor will be held Monday, January 10, 2022 at a location to be determined.
