WHAT IS WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA AND WHY SHOULD I SUPPORT IT?
 
It was December 1992 in Harrington, Maine, when wreath maker Morrill Worcester found himself with a surplus of
5,000 wreaths during the holiday season. Worcester saw the surplus as an opportunity to pay tribute to our country’s
veterans and with the help of Maine Senator Olympia Snowe, arranged for the wreaths to be placed at Arlington
National Cemetery. This annual tribute to our country’s veterans has continued ever since, touching the lives of millions
of veterans’ families and volunteers and growing in scope through the years.
In 2007, the Worcester family along with veterans and volunteers formed the non-profit organization Wreaths Across
America to continue and expand their efforts at Arlington National Cemetery and to support those around the country
who wished to do the same. Wreaths Across America’s mission is simple: Remember the fallen, Honor those that serve,
and Teach the next generation about the value of freedom. In 2019, Wreaths Across America and its national network of
volunteers placed over 1.5 million veterans’ wreaths at 1,433 locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad.
This year, National Wreaths Across America day will be held on Saturday, December 19th 2020. Locally, a ceremony will
begin at 12:00 Noon followed by the placement of wreaths at East Berlin Union Cemetery located at 3rd Street in East
Berlin where approximately 200 local veterans are laid to rest. This is open to anyone who would like to attend.
Please consider sponsoring at least one flag in honor of your hero to support Wreaths Across America. The cost is only
$50 per flag sponsorship. Deadline to submit your sponsorship is October 28, 2020.
On behalf of the volunteers and military families looking to honor all the veterans laid to rest at East Berlin Union
Cemetery and the Wreaths Across America extended family, I thank you for your consideration of this patriotic cause. I
look forward to hearing from you or seeing you in December!

Our Club has an opportunity to host a foreign exchange student for the 2021-2020 school year.  This has proven to be a beneficial and exciting program when we participated in past years.  Not only does the exchange student benefit, but the host families and our Club in general learns so much about the country and culture from which the student hails.  Those of us who have hosted are still in touch with our "adopted" students many years after their stay here.  It is truly a unique and worthwhile experience. In order for us to participate we need to secure host families now.
We are looking at approximately 3 months for each family.  As a host family you provide room and board for the individual and include them in all your typical family activities - church, school, sports, leisure time activities, etc.  They become part of your family for 3 months. Next school year 2020/2021 the student arrives in mid August.  The Club does provide a stipend and the student brings money for expenses that are outside the "normal" day to day of feeding the student etc...
 
Interested Rotarians can call me.
 
Thank you,

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 
  • UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute with Gurpal Singh, MD, J. Andre Garabedian, DO, Lokesh Gowda, MD, Gagandeep Gurm, MD, and Ashley Zinda, DO 
  • UPMC Cardiac and Pulmonary Diagnostic Testing 
  • Select Physical Therapy 

The Outpatient Center also offers community education rooms. For more information, please visit UPMCPinnacle.com/SouthHanover.  

As always, if anyone has a specific question, please reach out to me by phone or email.
Stay Safe and wear your facecovering.......
 
Sincerely,
 
Michael Hockenberry

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.

    

  In order to view the photos, please refer to the "Downloads" section on the website and click on "Scale Project with New Hope Ministries".

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.

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
Virus Humor:
 
  •  Is your car getting 3 weeks per gallon now? Mine is.
  • Wearing a mask inside your home is now highly recommended. Not so much to prevent COVID-19 but to stop eating.
  • Low gas prices during the lockdown is like a bald man winning a hairbrush.
