End Hunger Event

 

Saturday was another beautiful day, five Rotary Clubs joined with local Lutheran Churches to assemble 10's of thousands of nutritious meals for Montgomery County food pantries!   There were eight assembly lines of 10 volunteers for two shifts, who had a wonderful time in service to their communities while building goodwill and better friendships.

 

Thanks to Katie Vanhouten who organized 40 volunteers from the North Penn Rotary club

 
          
 
 
 
 
 
 

Purple Pinkie

 

Saturday was a beautiful day for the numerous Rotary Clubs and guests to come together in fellowship, to get exercise, and raise money to finally eradicate polio within our lifetime – an achievement that will save our planet's children from ever again suffering this debilitating disease!

Breaking bread with the Valley Forge Tourism and Convention board (VFTCB)

 
For Service Tuesday at Manna on Main Street Chris, Kris, Mohana, Sam, Tammy, Virginia and Will helped to serve a gourmet meal provided by the Valley Forge Tourism and Convention board (VFTCB).  This is the second year the VFTCB has taken over the kitchen at Manna, the kitchen was commanded by President & CEO Mike Bowman (a chef in a prior life) while his team worked with the Rotary and Manna teams in the front of the house (excluding Will who manned the dishwashing station – a man who is not afraid to get his hands dirty).  The guests were thrilled with the three coarse meal: house salad, grilled chicken breast on a bed of mixed veggies and a side of roasted potatoes, finished with apple crumble and ice cream.  After the guests retired we joined the VFTCB team for an amazing meal and fellowship.
 
VFTCB is also in their third year of their food drive, a gift to Pope Francis when he visited the Montgomery area – what else can you give someone that chose Francis as his papal name?
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
     
 
 
 
 
 
 

District Governor Richard Gromis speaks at our Club

 
 
 
Our Rotary Club of North Penn club was honored by the District Governor Richard Gromis and his wife (and fellow Rotarian) Sue being our guest speaker at our July 18th dinner.  Please read Kristin York’s excellent newsletter that describes the visit.  Through Rotarian communications DG Rick’s emphasizes the importance of long-term strategic planning to prevent “Club Drift” as leadership annually changes, “major goals for the 2017-2018 Rotary year is to strongly encourage each club to draft, resurrect, or revise a strategic plan for its club”.  Rick also states that “…as always, we will be concentrating on membership, but we will be also focused on retention.  Our goal is to start one new club this year and a net increase of one new member in every club.”  Rick also plans to appoint a Public Image Chairperson with a primary focus on social media, “The District and our clubs need to have an effective social media presence.”
  
  
 
 
 

JULY 1, 2017
 
Dear Friends:
I am honored to be the President of the Rotary Club of North Penn.  With our diverse skill sets and backgrounds, we come together to serve our local and international communities.
 
This years Rotary Theme is “Making a Difference”.  We will be making a difference by:
  • Continuing to provide financial support and volunteer service in our local community to such groups as Manna on Main Street, Easter Seals, Kelly Ann Dolan Foundation, North Penn YMCA, North Penn Boys & Girls Club and RSVP of Montgomery County.
  • Providing achievement scholarships to local high school and elementary schools, Rotary Camp Neidig opportunities for local students, and a scholarship to PA Free Enterprise Week. 
  • Internationally, we continuing to support the Rotary Foundation, Rotaplast, Polio Plus and Shelter Box.
  • We will also be participating in a local project with other Rotary Clubs to end hunger in Montgomery County.  This event will occur in October and we will be packaging meals for distribution to those in need in Montgomery County.
  • We have also been challenged by Rotary International President Ian H. S. Risely to plant a tree for every club member.
  • For our club members, we will continue to provide support for attendance at the Rotary Leadership Training.
  
We have developed a local Rotaract Club (College level) and Interact Club (High School Level) to ensure future generations of Rotarians. We work with them on local projects. 
 
One area of focus that will not change is the recruitment of new members to maintain our club’s outstanding 90+ year record of giving back to the community and most importantly to sustain our longevity in the North Penn area. 
 
Should you be interested in serving your community through Rotary, and are interested in membership to our club, please feel free to contact us so we can extend an invitation to attend an upcoming meeting.
 
Sincerely,
 
Bob Kile
Club President 2017-18

SERVICE ABOVE SELF AT MANNA ON MAIN STREET

 

North Penn Rotarians putting "Service Above Self" as we helped at the local food pantry, Manna on Main Street 3/28/17:   Our club members love getting out in the community and helping where needed.  We are a proud supporter of Manna On Main and enjoy Serving Humanity in our small corner of the world.  Rotarian volunteers tonight included Will Liegel, Tammy Skiermont, Mohana Padgaonkar (& husband Kiran) Virginia Scarano, Tom Morrissey & Bob Kile

 

Tom was wicked with that push broom as Virginia helped to wipe down tables

At the 1917 Rotary International Convention, outgoing Rotary president Arch Klumph proposed setting up an endowment “for the purpose of doing good in the world.”  That one idea, and an initial contribution of $25.50 set in motion a powerful force that has transformed millions of lives around the globe.  Today, the Rotary Foundation has grown exponentially because of the very generous, service minded Rotarians around the world who give willingly and unselfishly so that funds through grants which provide sustainable  service projects are given to those in need - world wide!

ROTARIANS ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD!  At a local celebration on March 11, 2017, our Rotary District 7430 held a 100th Anniversary Gala where Rotarians from all over Eastern PA gathered to celebrate our Foundation's milestone.  The evening was filled with fun, fellowship and, of course, more self-less giving to our amazing Foundation!  Among those attending were our very own from the North Penn Club:  Rotarian Tony Jannetta and his beautiful wife, Rachel  were honored by District Governor, Linda Young and the entire room of Rotarians as Tony & Rachel have pledged to be Arch Klumph Society members, donating $250,000 to the Rotary International Foundation. Tony & Rachel have supported the works of Rotary and it's Foundation for numerous years and continue to put “Service Above Self” every single day!  Thank you, Tony & Rachel for your dedication to the Rotary Foundation and your hearts of gold so that others, less fortunate than yourselves, may benefit from your generosity to the Rotary Foundation.

 

 
  Also in attendance from North Penn was Rotarian Michael Seidner and his lovely wife, Stephanie.  Mike & Stephanie have been long-time supporters of the Rotary Foundation, are multiple Paul Harris Fellows and also Paul Harris Society members.   Thank you, Mike & Stephanie for your continued, generous support of the Rotary Foundation.

Thank you, Grace and also to Liz Graham, both from Easter Seals in Montgomery County, for entertaining our club members and showing us a portion of the good work you do every day to help children.  
Our club's annual gift to Easter Seals (this year $2000) will go a long way to help those children in need
