HANOVER ROTARY SUPPORTS HOFFMAN HOME

Hanover Rotary is sponsoring an updated security/fire alarm system with a $5,000 District Club Grant to be installed in January.

Jess Socrates recently shared the following information on Operation Braveheart:
 
 Hello Peg and Warren - please share with Hanover Rotary Club I!
 
         Merry Christmas to our Operation Braveheart supporters!

Operation Braveheart III continues to facilitate the repair of indigent patients' heart defects.  This is my SECOND report for Operation Braveheart III. I am sending with this email a collage of the second set of eight patients that Dr. Jonas repaired from October to December 2022. Seven of the eight patients are children, one is an adult. Note that in addition to the 5 PDA's and two VSD's, Dr. Jonas also repaired a patient with a Right Coronary artery fistula, an abnormal connection between the right coronary artery (that supplies blood to the heart) and another blood vessel or heart chamber. 
 
You will notice on the collage that one of the children has a cleft lip that needs to be repaired. 
 
On our visit to the Philippines this February 2023, my wife Luz and I hope to get together with some of the children  who have been repaired. Together with our Rotary partners in the Philippines, the Rotary Club  of Makati Southeast, we plan on a get-together with as many of our Braveheart children as possible in the Plenary Hall of the new Henry Sy Medical Science Building at the UP College of Medicine. We have been granted permission to use this hall. It is situated on the same campus as the Philippine General Hospital where the patients' hearts are repaired.
 
As of today, Operation Braveheart has facilitated the transcatheter repair of 188 patients.
 
Thank you very much for your continued support.
Jess Socrates, M.D., Coordinator Operation Braveheart

The Hanover Rotary Club is hosting one upcoming event:
 
 

Casino Night - Friday November 18, 2022 at The Markets on Broadway Featuring live music by The Willys  and  Benefiting the Hanover Rotary Community Impact Fund  
 
 
 
The Hanover Rotary Club is happy to announce that a new member was inducted into the Club at today's regular meeting.  Heidi Wrights is now a member of the Club.  Heidi is the Bank Manager at Traditions Bank on Eisenhower Dr.  Mike Kelly is her sponsor.  
Welcome Heidi to the Club and we look forward to working with you in Rotary service to the community.
 
Pictured below from left to right are Kathi Fuhrman, President; Mike Kelly, Sponsor;  Heidi Wrights, new member.
Several Rotarians volunteered for a gardening project at the You First Personal Care Home on Frederick St on Friday May 27, 2023.  Rotarians included were chief arborists, agricultural experts, landscaping masters, lawn gurus Brandon Gething and Chris Helt, and Walt Maust, and Kathi Fuhrman and her son.  
 
Chris Helt shared the following information regarding the Club's effort to decorate the Gazebo at Wirt Park:
 
I attached a pic from this past Saturday @ Wirt Park. We had 9 helpers, we were able to complete the project in about 2 hours.
 
        Pictured above from left to right: Barb Rupp, Elinor Stough, Rick McKee, Rhonda Ramos, Kasey King, Chris Helt and son and Bob Miller.  Not pictured are Terry Gingrow and Jessica Waltersdorf.
Jess Socrates shared this article about the volunteer Doctor who performed the Braveheart Operations.  
 
I wish to share a recent article on our Operation Braveheart volunteer, Dr. Jonas del Rosario. The article has nothing to do with Operation Braveheart. It reveals to the reader the very personal side of Dr. del Rosario. We are fortunate to have him as our volunteer.
The District 7390 virtual Foundation Dinner in November announced a program called 72+ which makes suggestions to everyone about tax savings opportunities for charitable giving provided by the government’s SECURE Act and CARES Act. The 72+ program urges senior Rotarians to give strong consideration to making a contribution to The Rotary Foundation from their IRA. This especially applies when one reaches age 70.5 to make a Qualified Charitable Contribution (QCD) or when one must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) upon and after age 72 (hence the program name 72+). There are significant tax savings provided by the SECURE and CARES Acts.
Several Rotarians recently packed meals for area students to support Ruth's Harvest Program.
 
Hanover Rotarians Dave Erlemeier, Warren Risk (and his wife Judy), and Ralph Jodice (and his wife Judy) packed food bags for Ruth’s Harvest as part of the Club’s ongoing community service project.  On Friday’s, Ruth’s Harvest gives needy children in the local area 7 meals to take home for the weekend to help to ensure they do not go hungry.
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
 
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

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.
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.
