PROGRAM: BOB MILLER 20 Years in Rotary
 

Bob grew up in Littlestown. He went to St Aloysius Grade School, then Littlestown High School, graduating in 1966. From there he went to “The Mount”, Mount Saint Mary’s College in Emmitsburg, MD where he thought he wanted to be a math teacher eventually his earning a degree in Economics. After college Bob joined the National Guard starting at Fort Bragg in North Carolina and then moved on to Fort Knox in Tennessee. Even at that point you could see that Bob had his eye on money. Thanks for your military service Bob. Later, on 9-23-72 Bob married the love of his life, Joan. They have been married for 48 years and have raised a family of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 13 grandkids! Their family now enjoys traveling together, as many as possible, camping and spending time fishing off the family yacht, a pontoon boat that Bob keeps at Lake Marburg.

Bob’s professional CPA career began with the firm Peat Marwick Mitchell in Baltimore, one of what was know as the Big Eight at that time. He then got a little closer to home when he went to work with the Harry Ness CPA firm in York and eventually Hanover. After spending the next few years with other local Hanover CPA firms Bob decided to open his own practice out of his home in 1985. He then built his current office building on Main St in McSherrystown in 1989 and in 1993 he established the firm of Miller, Brown & Associates. Today his firm is known as Miller, Brown, Ohm & Associates. Bob has been eyeing retirement by cutting back over the past few years although he’s proud to say that this coming tax season will be his 50th. Congratulations Bob!

Bob joined Hanover Rotary on Nov. 20, 2000 and since then has held almost every office in the club! Most notably were Club president in 2005-06, Secretary, 2002-04; HOBY Chair, 2007-present; Rotary Foundation Chair 2006-20 and Group Study Exchange Washington tour guide and bus driver for many years and many others.

Thanks for a great presentation Bob. And for all you’ve done for the Hanover Rotary Club in your first 20 years! T

D7390 Safety Committee Tips for Safe Gatherings
As COVID-19 hospitalizations surge locally and nationally, the Centers for Disease Control and our local healthcare providers urge us to approach holiday gatherings in a different way this year. The greatest risk for contracting COVID-19 are indoor gatherings with anyone that is not part of your immediate household.  “Immediate” is defined as those who routinely live together.  For more details visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays.html   Another great local resource is a recorded webinar hosted by Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center on the state of COVID-19 in our area and how to be safe during the holidays.  Go here to listen: https://youtu.be/DLTAxu73kUk.   Need a resource specifically designed for Rotary Clubs?  Go to the D7390 website https://www.rotary7390.org/ and click on the red COVID banner for resources developed by the D7390 Safety Committee.  Let’s keep the holidays happy by being safe!
 
D7390 Safety Committee Featured in the Zone Newsletter
District 7390 is proud to announce the efforts of our district’s safety committee got published in the December Zone 28/32 newsletter! Sincere thanks is extended to RI Director Valarie Wafer who when she heard of our efforts, wholeheartedly not only published the article we submitted but also asked Rotarians everywhere to heed the advice of public health officials this holiday season by celebrating cautiously.
The following is provided to us by Mike Hockenberry:
 
Dear Fellow Rotarian,
 
     I'm pleased to announce that the new UPMC OutPatient Center has opened in South Hanover as of 8-1-2020.  On the opening weekend, Express Care services were available, followed by other practices and ancillary services as of Monday 8-3-2020.  Attached is a photo of the new building located at 2201 Brunswick Drive, Hanover, PA  Also, below is a link that provides additional information about the building and services. 
 
 

HANOVER, Pa. (Aug. 3, 2020) – UPMC announced today the opening of a new outpatient center in South Hanover. The outpatient center is located at 2201 Brunswick Drive, Hanover, and offers Express Care, primary care, specialty care, and ancillary services. 

“Today is an exciting day as we celebrate the opening of this new facility,” said Philip Guarneschelli, president, UPMC Pinnacle. “The new outpatient center demonstrates UPMC’s commitment to taking care of the growing community’s health care needs.” 

“For the past 20 plus years, we have been providing services to the South Hanover community,” said Michael Gaskins, president UPMC Hanover and UPMC Memorial. "As it has grown, we have recruited more providers and expanded services. Now we are able to bring these services under one roof to give our patients convenient access to them.” 

The following practices will relocate to the 43,000 square foot, two-story facility.

*Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Shah’s office is Suite 1300 on the first floor and is now known as UPMC Primary Care South Hanover.  

The following practices and services are new locations.

  • UPMC General Surgery with board-certified surgeon Eric Glendinning, MD

Stay Safe and wear your facecovering.......
 
Sincerely,

Jess Shared the following story and pictures regarding the Street Children's Village in the Philippines.  
 
As a review, the two-fold plan is as follows: 
- Build a piggery where we will raise native pigs. The meat will be more than enough to supply the continuous demand for pork. The excess will be sold to pay for other food items (fish, chicken, veggies, fruit, etc.)
- Cultivate the fertile land in the 11 hectare property for rice production. Part of the grant fund will be used to purchase a hand truck.
 
We have at last started the construction of the piggery. There was plenty of delay on account of Covid and weather but we have finally started. The attached pictures were submitted in a comprehensive initial report that was put together by one of the street children who is now 18 years old and who will soon complete his course in landscape architecture. The project also benefits some local construction workers who were hired instead of paying a contractor to do the job.
 
Pictured below are 7 erect columns for the construction.  For more Pictures visit the Photo Gallery on our website - Street Children's Village Project
 

Hanover Rotarians,

  District Governor Paddy Rooney has shared the following plea. With all the emphasis on the COVID issues over the past few months important projects in the life of Rotary have become a little lost and one of those is the critical work of ending Polio. The fight to end Polio has been a signature project of Rotary since the early 1980’s. Since that point we have made huge strides in conquering this insidious disease and, as we all know, we are so very close to eliminating it completely from the face of the earth. Once we are able to get up and running again, we will need to jump back into our important work of vaccinations and education in order to finally eliminate this dreadful disease called Polio.

 

So what can each of us do to help? We have saved many lunch dollars during the shut-down. Can you donate at lease one weekly lunch cost to Polio Plus?

 

Please make your donation between June 8 and June 17. The process is easy, go to https://www.endpolio.org/donate

 

Your contribution will be tripled by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The following email from Kim Hackett provides an update on our upcoming Inbound and Outbound Youth Exchange Programs and our current Exchange Student to Austria, Erin Dewald:
 
Good afternoon.  You will not be surprised that I received an email regarding the Inbound and Outbound Youth Exchange programs. Due to the COVID pandemic and possible interruptions of future outbreaks, the program is cancelled for this school year.  Our student, Gustav, was notified as well as the other 3 students for 7390.  Needless to say this is a sad announcement but the decision was not made lightly.  Thank you for your support of this program and hopefully this can be reviewed again for the next school year.
 
Erin DeWald remains in Austria and is actually one of the few students from our District still in her exchange. 
 
Thank you,
 
Kim

Recently 7 of our Club members attended PETS training to learn more about the inner workings of Rotary.  It was held in Gettysburg.  Picture "framed" below are Greg Staub, Kimberly Hackett, and Chris Helt.
The following update on Operation Braveheart is provided by Jess Socrates:
 
Latest update on Operation Braveheart that I sent to our supporters.
 
Dr, Jonas del Rosario, has performed the last PDA repair from our Braveheart II funds. We have spent the entire $124,000 grant resulting in the repair of 104 patients. The faces of the last 8 patients (97-104) are on the attached collage.
 
We have repaired a grand total of 145 patients.
 
THANK YOU VERY MUCH for everyone's support. 
 
As soon as we pay all the bills and zero our bank balance, we will submit a final report to the Rotary Foundation. We will then attempt to apply for another grant. As in the two previous grants, we will need "seed money" that will be matched by Rotary. The more "seed money" we have, the larger the Rotary match and more patients will be repaired.
 
One major news to share with everyone is the upcoming visit of Dr. Jonas del Rosario, our volunteer pediatric interventional cardiologist. He will be the guest speaker at the joint APPM-UPMASA (Association of Philippine Physicians in Maryland; UP Medical Alumni Society in America) Conference to be held on March 21 in Baltimore. He will also be a guest of the Rotary Club of Hanover the following Tuesday.
 
Respectfully, Jess Socrates, Coordinator, Operation Braveheart
 
This story is posted below on behalf of Ralph Jodice and Junior Achievement :
 
 
Both of Sherry Chroniger’s 6th grade social studies classes at St. Teresa of Calcutta in McSherrystown completed the Junior Achievement program, Our Nation, taught by Hanover Rotarian, Ralph Jodice.  This 5 lesson program taught the 52 students about the free market economy, entrepreneurship and innovation, career clusters, getting and keeping the job, and global economic connections. 
 
A group sponsored by the Hanover rotary club departed today for new Bern NC to assist with rebuilding hurricane flooded homes. This is the 2nd trip for the group in July 2019 they travelled to new Bern to assist in rebuilding 2 homes. The group is led by Rotarian Peg Sennett 
 
Please keep them in your prayers for a safe trip down and back.
 
We wish them well and want to hear all accounts of their trip when they return.
This email is being sent on behalf of Peg Sennett to provide an update on the Club Grant we used to assist New Hope Ministries.
 

Through a Club Grant, the Rotary Club of Hanover provided New Hope Ministries of Hanover with a floor scale and two folding wire containers.  The staff and volunteers have high praise for this new in-the-floor scale. Previously, volunteers had to physically push pallets onto an upgrade. With the new scale, pallets are moved onto the scale with a lift truck or hand jack, making the job less physical, more time efficient and much safer.  In an average month, over 150,000 pounds of food are weighed and handled multiple times, serving between 800-900 households per month.  That was a lot of pushing, pulling and heaving to get pallets of food onto the old scale.  The durable, folding containers also improve the efficiency of operations, eliminating the need to store food in cardboard boxes that warp and become insecure.

Pictured are Hanover Rotarians re-packaging items for New Hope clients.  The Rotary signage above the scale was donated by Rotarian Scott Kurtz and Minuteman Press; it will constantly remind New Hope clients and volunteers that Rotary is involved in serving the community.

This article is a post from Jess Socrates.  He is providing an update to Operation Braveheart in the Philippines.  8 more children have been helped.
A few days before the end of year 2019, when our total number of patients repaired for Braveheart II was at 98, Dr. Jonas expressed to me that he wanted to round off this number to 100 before the start of the year 2020. A few days ago, he reported to me that he did two more patients before the end of the year, thus meeting his personal goal.
 
Thanks to everyone's support, these 100 patients plus the 41 previously repaired, brings our grand total to 141 patients repaired.
 
In a few days, one of my fellow Rotarians, a career diplomat, will visit the Philippines. Jonas has scheduled another patient that he will repair on the day of this visit. This is not an inspection; it is a friendly visit from a Rotarian representing my Club, who is interested in the project.
 
The attached collage includes the grateful faces of patients #89 to 96 from December 2019.
 
Sincerely yours,
Jess Socrates, Coordinator, Operation Braveheart
Peg Sennett shares the following update on the donation our Club made to New Hope Ministries to enable them to purchase a scale:
 

CLUB GRANT FLOOR SCALE

Our Club provided New Hope Ministries with a $5,000.00 floor scale and food container s through a Rotary Club Grant. The scale has been installed and is in use. As part of the Grant, Rotarians must participate in the project. Consequently we have scheduled TUESDAY JANUARY 21ST, 6:00-7:00PM as a time to meet at New Hope Ministries on Baltimore Street to help stock shelves and assist clients. Please mark your calendars. See you there. 

Peg Sennett, Chair Humanitarian Committee

Ralph Jodice is sharing this project information:
 
Hanover Rotarians recently packed food bags for Ruth’s Harvest.  Ruth’s Harvest ensures grammar school students in need of food go home on Fridays with enough meals to make it through the weekend.  Ruth’s Harvest is one of the primary recipients for funds from The Rotary Club of Hanover’s largest fund raiser called Tastefest.  Over the last 5 years, Tastefest has netted over $30,000 per year which the club pushes back out to the local community.  Pictured here from left to right are Ralph Jodice, Rick McKee (holding the Rotary Coin). Judy Jodice and Tammy Miller.
 
Congratulations to Greg Staub for Multiple Paul Harris Award
 
 
Hanover’s club President, Craig Aiello, and Rotary Foundation Committee Chair, Bob Miller, present Hanover Rotarian and District Governor Designee, Greg Staub, with a multiple Paul Harris Fellowship pin.

FUNDS COLLECTED FOR PUERTO RICO DISASTER RELIEF HAVE BEEN

DISBURSED TO THE JANE STERN COMMUNITY LIBRARY

Following the September 2017 hurricane in Puerto Rico, D7390 Rotarians donated $30,386 specifically for Puerto Rico. Over these many months we have searched for a project that met our requirements for documentation and credibility. We have located such a project and are excited that your donations will benefit many.

Begun as a lending library by community activist Jane Stern in 1974, the Jane Stern Dorado Community Library in Puerto Rico quickly became a bilingual learning center for language, literacy and after-school programs as a 501C (3) non-profit corporation. The Library system emphasizes learning programs for adults, teens and children; early education play areas with books and toys; computers and reliable internet access for digital resources. They serve as school libraries during the day, and are open to the surrounding communities from 3:00pm to 6:00pm.

The D7390 donation will support operating expenses for two of the Program’s satellite libraries in Toa Baja and in Mameyal that were forced to move to new facilities following the hurricane. Our contribution will provide operating funds for the 2019-2020 school year and the first semester of 2020-2021.

The Jane Stern Library was awarded The U.S. Library of Congress Literacy Award in 2019 for implementation of best practices in literacy promotion. The Library was also a finalist for the U.S. National Medal for Museum and Library Service; IMLS awards high honors to institutions that make significant and exceptional contributions to their communities.

The Library will keep us posted on their activities and will give us Major Sponsor recognition at the Library’s main entrance and at every event. We will also be recognized through their website, social media, and print material. WE ARE INVITED TO THEIR GALA EVENT TO BE HELD ON MARCH 21, 2020 AT THE RITZ CARLTON RESERVE IN DORADO BEACH P.R. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING, CONTACT PEG SENNETT FOR MORE INFORMATION.

The Community Gifts Committee met this Tuesday [Nov 12] and approved the following gifts;
1. New hope Ministries Feed-A-Friend marathon    $1000.
2. Hanover Council of Churches   $2500.
3. Sweet charities Cancer Fund    $1000.
4. Guthrie Memorial Library       $1250.
5. HART Center (50th anniversary)   $1000.
6. Boy Scouts of America New Birth of Freedom Council luncheon  $500.
7. Hanover VNA  $500.
 8.Hanover Symphony Orchestra  $250.
9. Hanover School District Education Foundation  $500.
10. South Western Education Foundation $500.
11. Spring Grove School District  $500.
12. Delone High School   $500.
 
This totals the $10,000 budgeted for the committee this year. If we are allocated additional funds later in the year, we will discuss other possible gifts.
Just received this short update from Erin:
 
 
I just changed host families so now I live in Inzing. They are very nice and I'm learning more German than ever with them.
Everything is going very well and I have plans this weekend for hiking and going down the mountain on a go-kart type thing. 
I believe there is a trip in December for a Christmas ball in Salzburg. That is the closest trip there is I think.

 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
 
GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT GROWING OLD 
1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional. 
2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get. 
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there. 
4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.  
5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions. 
6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician. 
7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.

Interact News

The Hanover Rotary Club is pleased to support Interact Clubs in two area High Schools - Delone Catholic and Spring Grove.  This section is intended to highlight news & activities reported to us from those Clubs

DELONE CATHOLIC

 Living up to their school motto of being "Doers of the Word," the Interact Club at Delone Catholic High School (McSherrystown, PA)  has not allowed the pandemic to stop their good deeds! This group of young people has connected to their community in several ways that include a non-perishable food collection that was donated to Roots for Boots, a 501c3 that hosts a food bank for veterans in need; a school wide toy drive for Toys for Tots; a garden clean-up on the school grounds; 125 handwritten Thanksgiving cards for residents in local nursing homes, and they will be participating in the Boxes of Joy program through Cross Catholic Outreach. Caught doing good, these students are to be commended for all of their accomplishments that have truly made a difference to others by putting service over self! (photo is of food donation to Roots for Boots)

In communities with no services, incremental steps can go a long way

When Rotary members tried to bring toilets to a remote island, the population wasn’t ready.

Why Rotarians should engage with program alumni

When clubs cultivate relationships with Rotary alumni, both sides benefit.

The sad truth about altruism is that there aren’t enough altruists

The people who fill the truly essential roles in society are often in short supply

History: Rotary in Spain survives challenges

After successfully establishing a presence in Great Britain and Ireland, Rotary expanded its reach to mainland Europe with the chartering of a club in Madrid, Spain, on New Year’s Day 1921.
