Thank you, Rotarian Leslie Underhill for presenting the program on Polio and the origin of Rotary's involvement to aid in eliminating this horrible disease.  The Rotary Club in Trenton NJ, during the 1970's had the vision to eradicate Polio.  By 1985 Rotary had Polio Plus, which had raised $247 Million to combat Polio.  400 million children need to be immunized every year.  This year, there were 11 cases of Polio in Nigeria.    

 

Welcome Liz Ann Tepper to the Greatest Rotary Club in the World!
 

The day began with the Kickoff at Barley Creek Restaurant. Karen and Cleo attended.  The Rotary team completed tasks at Women’s Resources of Monroe County.  Tasks included: Deck and Rail Washing, Moving Mattresses, Discarding Furniture, Installing AED Unit, Cleaning the  Gazebo, Re-assembling Desks, Moving Bags of Clothing, Power Washing Deck Furniture, Scrubbing Floor Mats, Sweeping Walkways and Porches.   It was an awesome experience! Giving back gives a warm-fuzzy feeling like no other. The staff at Women’s Resources were so happy that they invited us to come back any time.
 

Thank you Gerry Bortz for an interesting lesson on Fly Fishing and the various types of flies.  Flies come in many styles.  The Poconos are well known for fly fishing and we have some of our very flies.   The mouse shaped fly was made to fish the Delaware River and the "Henryville Special" is another fly tied to the area.
At the meeting 2 weeks ago we discussed the devastating images of Houston and the surrounding area.  There are many service organizations reaching out to people in need.  Food, shelter, clothes, medicine and the list goes on.  The estimated amount of relief needed is now in the tens of billions.  It is overwhelming.  We wanted to tackle the questions "How can we donate to Rotary and where will our donations go?"
There was a district conference call on Saturday morning with DG Karin Breitlauch and others to discuss the most effective means for us to donate through Rotary and encourage friends and families to do the same.  It was determined that immediately, as a district, we do not have the required expertise or connections to provide aid directly.
The Satellite Club held a membership mixer at Peppe's Bistro!  What a great turnout of members, potential members and a little tiny guest!  Hehe!  Great conversations were had about Rotary, the work that we do locally and abroad and most importantly about our wonderful members that make up this great club!  The food was pretty great too!
 
 
 
Our speaker was Bethany Kuster with Color for Kids.  She is a local middle schooler that has started her own non-profit to bring color to kids everywhere.  7,239 kids around the world now have Color so far!  300,464 crayons shared and counting!  Her dream is for every kid to have their own box of crayons.  Their mission is to promote individual expression and creativity through color of children in high poverty schools enrolled in grades pre-k through grade 4 by prociding personal art supplies that they can bring home.  Click here to visit her website!
