Prevention:  The Key To Wellness
It is important to note that 1 in 6 people worldwide cannot pay for healthcare, while 100 million people are pushed into poverty due to the cost of medical attention. That is why Disease Prevention and Treatment is one of Rotary's Six Areas of Focus.
Our allotted time to volunteer this year will be Saturday December 12 from 12-5 PM. Please email Dave Yarosh at dayarosh@vectorsecurity.com or call him at 570-899-6014 with the time you can help. The Salvation Army will be sanitizing the kettle and all of the equipment that accompanies the kettle.  Masks will be required.

Rotarians live a life of service to others… selflessly and generously. That is why I say emphatically that…
              Our Super heroes are our very own Rotarians and their capes are their Rotary Badges.
Rotarian Jim Becker, District Rotary Foundation Chair, shared with us very important information on Rotary International. Jim showed very moving video of RI then and now. You can feel confident donating to RI as 4 Star Charity Navigator gives it a rating of 92% which is one of the highest in the county. RI sends money back to our community over time. For example, we recently received an International Grant for our Head Start program. Our donations help Rotary achieve global projects of polio eradication, clean water, literacy and entrepreneurship in economically disadvantaged areas. The discussion segued into recognition of Paul Harris Fellows. Karen DeMatteo, Clarence Murphy and Frank Herting were recognized for their Paul Harris award history. Arlene and John Frailey accepted a Paul Harris for distinguished Rotarian, the late John Frailey. Frank Herting gifted his to his wife, Rotarian Barbara who has been very involved and a steadfast supporter of Rotary.     
Special recognition goes to Don Hannig and his committee for all their hard at work at pulling together a very successful Reverse Raffle. The event was the inaugural event at the hottest new venue in the Poconos The Armory on 271 Washington St in East Stroudsburg. Special thank you to Rich Berkowitz for hosting us at this beautiful facility. Rob Howell was the top prize winner, Ted Butz took second place and Jennifer Narkavich was the third place winner. There were many prizes all the way thanks to all of you who donated or secured donations from local merchants.This made for a fun event. This is our major fundraiser so that we in turn can help our community through our Stroudsburgs Rotary Foundation.

Our District ]7410], is providing a supported fundraiser for all clubs. With the effect COVID19 had on canceling so many fundraisers for the clubs in our district our leadership team felt it was necessary to help in providing the opportunity to raise funds.
 
Below is an attachment of the district supported fundraiser. This fundraiser should be both profitable for our club and require very little manpower from our members. It will also be of a short duration and we encourage you to act immediately! 
We will be gathering in person for the second time since the COVID-19 Pandemic restrictions were imposed. Attendance is limited to 24 and only those who respond will be admitted.  Jim Becker and the Tech Team will be providing a simultaneous ZOOM experience.
