The Hanover Rotary Club will be holding the first of 2 major annual fundraisers on Tuesday, February 23, 2016.  The purpose of SPORTS NIGHT is to focus attention on the youth of the greater Hanover area.  Recognizing scholar-athletes from Hanover, Delone Catholic, South Western, and Spring Grove High Schools for their achievements has become a tradition that provides positive role models and motivation for success for all area students.  The event also enables Rotary to provide additional financial support to a variety of non-profit organizations serving our area's youth. 
 
The event will be held at the SAVES Building, 5865 Hanover Road, Hanover, Pa 17331 beginning with a buffet dinner at 6:30 pm.  The Program, auction, and door prises will follow.
 
YOU can support this event by becoming an Underwriter, Table Sponsor, or a supporter.

At its regular meeting on Tuesday November 3, 2015, the Hanover Rotary Club awarded funds to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  On hand to receive the funds was Becky Kroft, Development Associate for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Pa and West Virginia.  This is one of the many charities and organizations to whom the Hanover Rotary Club provides funding throughout the year.  Pictured is Rotary President, Kelly Rebert (right), and Becky Kroft from Make-A-Wish (left).
 

 
 
Thanks to the efforts of members Torren Ecker and Jim Balthaser, the Hanover Rotary Club recently obtained 501(c)(3) tax exempt status as a non-profit organization.  We believe this status will be an added incentive for individuals and organizations to donate monies to our various fund raising events which enables us to support local, national, and international people in need.

"WE APPRECIATE YOUR SERVICE"
The Rotary Club of York, PA is proud to be the only Rotary Club designated as a "hub" for the National Honor Flight. NHF was founded to give veterans of World War II and the Korean Conflict an opportunity to make the pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. to visit their memorials and witness the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. It is a special day which generally includes a motorcycle honor guard and a greeting with our national representatives. 
The next “flight” is scheduled to leave by bus from York PA the third week in October.
Rotary Club of York is asking us to help identify qualified veterans. The veteran’s name, address or email address, and phone number should be sent to Rotarian Al Sykes at awsykes@gmail.com. Al’s phone is 717-880-1261.
York Rotary is also looking for chaperones to spend the day with one of our veterans. The cost for the chaperone is $100.00 and includes a box lunch. It is an unforgettable day for the veteran and for the chaperone.

Beware of new email scam claiming to be from Foundation Chair Klinginsmith
A new email purporting to be from Rotary Foundation Trustee Chair Ray Klinginsmith is targeting Rotary members. The email falsely claims that members can become End Polio Now ambassadors if they email club information to a Gmail address within 48 hours. The fraudulent email has the subject line “BECOME AN END POLIO AMBASSADOR” and is sent from a fake email address. This is a scam. Rotary staff is working to resolve the issue. Avoid being the victim of scams by deleting any email that appears suspicious.
