LATEST CLUB MEETING NEWS
Late yesterday, Sunday, I received this note from Becky Stabler.
 
"Hi, With heavy heart I must share that Dad died today.  I will let you know the funeral arrangements once they are made.
Thank you for your support of him through those 53 years of perfect attendance.
Becky"
 
I know we all share our deepest condolences and sympathies with the entire Stabler Family.  Please keep Art and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
 
I will bring a card to Tuesday's meeting for us to sign.  When we hear more from Becky regarding services and potential donations, I will let you all know.  We should consider a donation in Art's name to the Rotary Foundation similar as we did for Dr. Alandete.  
 
The visitation for Art Stabler will be at Feiser Funeral Home in New Oxford, Tuesday, Dec 26, 6-8pm.
The funeral will be Wednesday, Dec 27, 11am at Gettysburg Presbyterian Church, 208 Baltimore Street, Gettysburg PA 17325.  Lunch and meet the family will be held afterwards.
 
If you would care to send a personal card to the family, the address is:

Yours in Rotary Service...Ralph 
 
At our meeting on Dec 12, 2017 Jess Socrates shared that Operation Braveheart in the Philippines was concluded.  The project was funded for 32 children and they actually served one additional child.  Jess passed around a collage of the faces of the 33 children who benefited from this project.

At our meeting on Tuesday July 11, President Ralph outlined Goals for the Club for the coming year.  He emphasized that these goals did not come out of thin air, but they reflect the RI goals, our District Goals as well as input he received through the Club survey conducted several weeks ago.  He distributed 3 documents - a powerpoint type presentation, a tri-fold brochure and a bullet style single sheet.  If you were unable to attend our meeting today, these will let you know what our plan is for this Rotary year.  A '+' symbol indicates the goal is in line with a Rotary International goal.  A '*' indicates the goal is in line with a District 7390 goal.  The Rotary Theme for 2017-2018 is...Making A Difference.
 
Our Vision is to MAKE A DIFFERENCE no matter how large or small in the Hanover community and internationally as well.
 
The goals as described are listed in three areas:
- Support and Strengthen Our Club
- Focus And Increase Humanitarian Services
- Enhance Rotary's Public Image And Awareness
 
 
 
If asked by anyone what our club does, please feel free to use the tri-fold brochure as a handout.  All 3 of the documents are up on our website in the DOWNLOADS SECTION.
 
If you have any questions or comments, please let Ralph know.
 
 
 
Each year Rotary District 7390 participates in an cultural and vocational exchange program with young professionals from a foreign country called Group Vocational Service Exchange or GVSE.  This year the exchange was with Rotary District 3460 from Tai-Chung Taiwan from April 22, 2017 to May 20, 2017.
 
Two members of the Hanover Rotary Club are attending the Rotary International Convention in Atlanta, Ga this week.  Pictured here are Bob Miller and John Bailey.  The RI Convention is not always this close to home as it moves each year to various countries around the world.  Bob and John took advantage of the proximity this year to attend.
 
 
Rotarian Ralph Jodice recently presented the JA Program titled "Our Nation" to a 5th grade class at Baresville Elem.  Here is an extract from Ralph's report.
 
Attached is a picture of Mr. Dustin Henning's 5th grade class at Baresville Elementary School in the South Western School District in Hanover with their course completion certificates.  Today, we completed the JA program, Our Nation. I conducted all 5 classes over this past week. They were a very good class, It was fun and it was very rewarding. 
 
And a "thank you" to the teacher, Mr Henning:
Hi Dustin....here is the picture from this morning.  Thanks again for having JA in your classroom. You are a great teacher. I appreciate your hospitality, and I enjoyed getting to know you. Thanks again for letting me do the extra classes on my USAF flying experiences and our recent Antarctica trip.  I learned from you and your students.

On Tuesday, December 20, a group photo was taken of the Hanover Rotary Club before our regular weekly meeting at Bay City Restaurant.  Our program that day was a wonderful performance from the choral group from Hanover High School led by Deb Smith.  The students were all dressed in period costumes and they did a marvelous job!!!
 
 
UPDATE FROM DELONE CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL INTERACT CLUB
 
Delone Interact Club announced that they earned over $1000 with their recent pit beef sale.  The proceeds of which will be donated to the PAL lunch program.  Congrats to the Interact Club for all their efforts this worthy cause.
 
 
On December 17, the Interact Club will be participating in the wreath laying ceremonies at Mt Oliver Cemetery to honor veterans.  Thank you for supporting this event for our veterans.
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.
 
At its regular meeting on June 30, 2015, the Hanover Rotary Club recognized 16 members on their years of Rotary membership.  The Rotary Club of Hanover honors years of membership in 5 year increments - 5 years of membership; 10 years of membership; 15 years, etc. and announces it to the Club annually.
 
Additionally, the Club recognizes those members with perfect attendance.  This year there were 6 members honored for such attendance from 1 year to 51 years.
