A Rotarian Inquirers meeting will be held Sept. 25 at 4:30 p.m. for those thinking about joining Rotary. We would like every member to invite at least one guest. Snacks will be provided by Battlefield Brew Works. The club will purchase one beer for each guest.
President Brad announced that Rotary International suggests that presidents hold four club assemblies each year.
During his many years in Rotary, President Brad has noticed that the best way to guarantee low attendance at a club meeting is for the president to announce he or she will be having a club assembly.
Instead, Brad will be doing Rotary minute each meeting. He believes giving people information in small doses will have more lasting effect and if you tally up all of his Rotary minutes, we will be spending more time on Rotary business than if we had four club assemblies.
This week’s Rotary minute is……
RI wants clubs to be family friendly and expand volunteers at service programs. Unlike club assemblies, this is an idea President Brad wholeheartedly supports. This year, the Hoch family will be joining us at Ruth’s Harvest Packing and Breakfast with Santa. President Brad encouraged all members to review our community service offerings and invite their family to assist.

Special presentations of grant checks from the club were made President Brad, on behalf of the philanthropy committee:
$1,000 to the Buchanan Valley Fire Department. Mike Spielman, Fire Chief (shown above) accepted the check and explained that this would be used to help fund the 18 Junior Firefighters that are part of their department. The Buchanan Valley Fire Department teaches life skills to 13-17 year-olds; things like how to run a fundraiser, operate a dishwasher and manage a checking account.
$1,000 to Hoffman Home for Youth. Melissa Leathery, CEO and also a member of the Hanover Rotary Club, (shown above) accepted the check and explained that this money will be used to landscape and beautify the campus so that the troubled children who come there for psychological treatment will feel more welcomed into their aging facility.
$750 was given to the Mission of Mercy. David Liddle (shown above) accepted the check and showed us a video about the services that they offer to patients, regardless of their ability to pay, through their mobile clinics. This money will help fund a three-chair mobile dental clinic.
