Judge Patti-Worthington came to speak with our club about the state of the bench in Monroe County. 
Here are some highlights:
-With our case load, we need 8 judges
-In January up to 7 counties fund District Judges but the State funds the county
-This year starting pre-trial services - Keep out of jail (Drug offenses & mental health)
-All Judges involved in many committees (Both local and statewide)

The Pocono Cinema is the oldest theatre in Monroe County opening in 1929.  it reopened in 2008 as the non-profit center having stages added as well for live performances, art galleries that are student run and of course the cinema itself.  They are excited to provide hands on experience to students in running a gallery.  Theatre is very accessible and they have been changing their formatting to be "sensory friendly".  They realized there was a large population that was not being served and made simple changes in lighting and sound to make sure the programs are suitable to patrons especially children with autism or on the autism spectrum.  This is an inclusive program.  Expanding the programming is thanks to funding received from RCOTS.  The next event will be a sensory friendly concert likely in the spring of 2020.  Pocono Cinema is always looking to add new programs and partners.  They welcome new ideas so reach out to Courtney at Also, the 3rd Saturday of every month there are free movies for children.  Their Red Carpet Event is coming up on November 16th.  For more info visit their website!
Thank you for everyone participating in the recent Rotary events including the Reverse Raffle, the Pints & Pinot 4 Polio crawl, and the Community Dinner at St John’s in Middle Smithfield.  Your presence at these and all of the Rotary events has helped to make the first part of the Rotary year successful.  Also, I would like to thank all of you who were able to make the John Parker memorial tribute this past Saturday.  It was a wonderful event and I know that Mary Louise was very appreciative of the day and the support shown to her and her family.
We do have some upcoming events in November including our annual Leadership Luncheon event on Thursday November 21st at the Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort.  The Luncheon will be our weekly meeting so please come out and support the young leaders from our County Schools.  We do need help with sponsors for the cost of each student’s lunch so please consider paying 1 or more of the students (We anticipate that the number of students will be 150+).  The cost per student attending is $25.  Please see Jim Becker if you are able to sponsor a student or if you would like to be a “Corporate or Individual” Sponsor.”
