Our partner Club in the Philippines, Waling-Waling Rotary Club, got a mention in the latest Rotarian magazine.  Congrats to them for their efforts to help others.
 
 You may know that one of our local service projects involves repairing and painting benches in the Hanover Area.  The first part of this project is complete and you can see the benches in the south east corner of the square in Hanover.  
Rotarian Richard Ellenberger reports:
Students from Emory H. Markle Intermediate School (South Western) recently assisted the Rotary Club of Hanover with the refurbishing of the Rotary themed benches in the downtown Hanover corridor.  The students, led by Mrs. Jana Bonds and Mr. Thomas Nikolaus, worked in teams to provide necessary repairs along with a fresh coat of paint. We appreciate the hard work of these students, who through this project, embodied the Rotary Motto; “Service Above Self.”
 
There will be more to come on this project.  (Rotarian Kelly Rebert's son is in the photo.  Can you find him?)
 
  
 
The Rotary Club of Hanover, family members, the Borough of Hanover Shade Tree Commission and the local Forest Service gathered at Longarm Reservoir on Saturday to plant 60 trees for our Day of Service.  Another 20 tress, which the club purchased, are already planted at various locations around Hanover.  The weather was perfect, everyone had fun and as one member said; “it was nice to have fellowship outside of our normal meeting time and location.”  
 
This week, on Wednesday, 25 April at 7 PM, the Mayor of Hanover will honor our club with a Mayor's Proclamation.  The Proclamation will be presented at the beginning of the Council Meeting.  President Ralph, Dale Brubaker and Mike Taylor will receive the Proclamation from the Mayor.  The Proclamation will recognize our club for partnering with the Hanover Shade Tree Commission, our Day of Service Trees Planting and for the purchase of trees located around town.  
Everyone is invited to attend.  Please come out if you can.
 
From 19 to 23 March 2018, Hanover Rotarian, Club President and Junior Achievement (JA) Coordinator, Ralph Jodice, taught the Junior Achievement Program, Our Nation, to both 6th grade classes at St. Teresa of Calcutta in McSherrystown.  The JA Our Nation Program consists of five, 45 minute classes teaching students about our free market economy, entrepreneurship and innovation, the importance of STEM skills in the work force, potential careers, and how the United States is tied to the global economy.  The first picture is of Mrs. Tiffany Stultz’s class.  The second picture is of Mrs. Sherry Chroniger’s class.  
 
Additionally, on 15 March 2018, Hanover Rotarians Bert Elsner, Bob Miller and Mike Cooper supported JA’s STEM Summit at South Western High School in Hanover.
Merle Zehr and his committee are currently asking all members to help sell tickets for our upcoming Cash Raffle in May.  Tickets are $20.00 each and we need Rotarians to sell as many tickets as they can.  As a Club we need to sell $7000.00 as a minimum to break even, and if ALL tickets are sold we could earn close to $15,000.  
A drawing and cash award will be held every day in May and when a ticket is drawn, it goes back into the pot for a chance to win again.  So, ticket holders have numerous chances to win.
 
As with our other fundraisers all proceeds will go to support local non-profits, charities, and community needs.
Peg shared that our District 7390 raised $46,566 for hurricane relief.  Our Club's portion of that was $4019!!  They were able to renovate two homes, not just the one that was planned.
Tastefest 2018 was held on Friday March 2 and Chairperson Kelly shared the results.  Sponsorships went way up this year as did the bottom line, so it was a banner year.  Here is a short summary of what she shared:
2015  Net Profit - $30,702 
2016  Net Profit - $32,165
2017  Net Profit - $31,517
2018 Net Profit - $42,517.14
 
Big thanks and congrats go out to Kelly and the entire Tastfest Committee!!!
 
As with our other fundraisers, all proceeds go to support local community needs.
Annual Tastfest event is Hanover Rotary's largest fundraiser.  At Tuesday's meeting, proceeds from that event were awarded to area causes
 
 
Tastefest is the Rotary Club of Hanover’s one-of-a-kind event bringing local restaurants, bakeries and specialty beverage businesses together for a unique flavor-filled culinary evening of tasting.This past year, the event netted a total of $31,518.33 and was distributed as follows
Community Requests - $15,000
Ruth’s Harvest - $5,000
Roots for Boots - $5,000
Remainder going to Rotary Club of Hanover’s Foundation - $6,518.33
 
Representatives of Ruth's Harvest and Roots for Boots attended today's meeting to receive the donations.
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.
