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 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.

At our regular meeting on Tuesday January 27, 2015 Chad-Alan Carr, Founding Executive/Artistic Director of the Gettysburg Community Theatre, shared a program that the Theatre sponsors called the Penguin Project.  Essentially area youth with special needs are invited to become the performers in a theatrical production.  Each young person is assigned a peer mentor to assist with the rehearsals and performances.  The theatre is currently looking for youth, both those with special needs and those without, from the Adams/Hanover area to participate in this year's production.  If you or someone you know might be interested in this unique opportunity please contact :

How to increase the number of Paul Harris Society members in your club
As president of the Rotary Club of High Point, North Carolina, USA, Joel Gentry wanted to lead by example. He and his executive board set a goal for 2014-15 of having five more members join the Paul Harris Society. The society recognizes Rotarians and friends of The Rotary Foundation who contribute $1,000 or more annually to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus, or approved global grants. “I felt that for me to ask people to do that, I had to set the pace,” says Gentry about his decision to contribute at that level. “My wife and I re-evaluated all the places we were giving to and felt convinced we...

Nigerian donor promotes Rotary’s role as a player for peace

"How many millions of people's lives would not have been affected by Rotary's good work?" says Olawale-Cole, who joined Rotary as a member of the Rotary Club of Isolo, Lagos State, in 1980. "If Rotary did not take on the challenge of eradicating polio, how many more millions of children around the world would have died or been crippled by this disease? Who could have done that if not Rotary?" Imagining what the world would be like without Rotary...
Rotary, USAID collaboration improves sanitation facilities in Ghana
According to a 2012 report by UNICEF and the World Health Organization, Ghana has made great strides in providing its people with clean drinking water. But access to better sanitation has lagged. Only about 14 percent of Ghanaians have access to improved facilities, compared with the 54 percent target set for 2015 by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Addressing the issue isn't simple, as pit latrines need emptying, toilets need maintenance, and promoting hygiene requires education. The H2O Collaboration, a partnership between Rotary and the U.S. Agency for International...
