Aberdeen Rotarian honoured for his community work 

 

Rotarian, Ian Dow, has been honoured with Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland’s Champions of Change award for his outstanding work in helping the community.

 

Ian was chosen to receive the award after playing a key role in his Rotary club’s Education in The Gambia project for a school in Ghana Town ; a small fishing village in Gambia which Ian has visited several times over the past three years to oversee the project. Ian’s club has raised over £9,000, which has provided teacher training, a new classroom, toilets and educational equipment.

 
 
 
 
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.
 

 
 

 

 
 
 
 
The long anticipated and exceptionally popular trip to the United Nations will take place on Saturday, November 7, 2015.  There are only two, private organizations which have consultative status at the UN, and Rotary International is one of them.  It's amazing how influential our organization is.

"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.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
Member Spotlight: The book on Brad Rubini
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian When Brad Rubini was reading a bedtime story to his seven-year-old daughter, Claire, she asked him why he was reading the words wrong. “I’m dyslexic, so I thought I was reading the words right,” recalls Rubini, a past president of the Rotary Club of Toledo, Ohio. After he explained his problem, she began to read to him on most nights instead. “She was a voracious reader and storyteller. She was always telling stories, even when she was a toddler,” he says. Three years later, while Claire was away at summer camp, she died unexpectedly as a result of a...
