Coming soon to a computer screen or smart device near you will be an auction in which you can participate from the comfort in your own home, or wherever you feel comfortable and safe. It will feature scores of items and services ranging from the essential to the innovative with automated reminders to bidders throughout a six-week online bidding process.
 
The 42 Rotary Clubs of District 7410, who support and help fund community projects in all or part of 10 counties in Northeastern Pennsylvania, are sponsoring a virtual silent auction online starting on Monday, Feb. 1, and culminating at 5 p.m. Sunday, March 14, with scores of donated items up for bid throughout the process. The lists of items include jewelry, vacation or weekend getaways, ski passes, tickets to professional sporting events and even professional services an attorney, an insurance agency and others. Visit Trellis.org/RotaryAuction for a look at the variety of items up for bid.  Once the bidding starts on February 1, 2021, bidders and prospective bidders may return to the site for a real-time appraisal of the bidding for items of interest until the bidding ends at 5 p.m. on March 14.
 
Once again, Stroudsburgs Rotarians stepped up to Salvation Army's Bell Ringing challenge. From 12-5 Dec 12, Rotarians took turn ringing the bells and wishing people a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Despite the bitter cold weather, people were very generous and in the holiday spirit. Jason Lesh, Events and Development Coordinator for Salvation Army, reported that our efforts raised $503.17! He thanked us and said "You really helped to Rescue Christmas this year!" Special thanks to Rotarian Dave Yarosh for spearheading this initiative
A special welcome to our newest member, Rotarian Ashe Prawl. A second generation Rotarian, Ashe will serve the club proud. A recent Pitt graduate, he has already demonstrated his commitment to the community and service above self by his contributions while in University. 
On Saturday December 12, 8 members of the Community Service Team gathered at the office of Family Promise in Stroudsburg to wrap presents and consolidate food boxes for three families.  We were supported there by Timaki Johnson, a case manager from Family Promise. Your generous support to Stroudsburgs Rotary Gives Back at Christmas enabled the purchase of gifts for seven children. The team spent a total of $815.80 on these gifts. Each family will also receive a turkey and a large box of food, as well as various items of clothing for the children.  Special thanks to Leslie Underhill for ordering the gifts from Amazon, Jim Becker and his Access Office Technologies team for their purchase and generous donation of a new bike for one of the older children, and to Lisa Baldwin for securing the food and clothing from Bushkill Outreach and Light of the World Church. 
 
As I reflect upon the Stroudsburgs Rotary 2020 21 year thus far it is evident that there have been many challenges on our journey.
However, understanding that change is inevitable and a natural part of life has made the challenges easier to face. Adapting to the twists and turns rather than resisting them has been a process that helped to maintain sanity and balance.
I am grateful to those who work diligently to make the Stroudsburgs Rotary a vibrant and productive organization. I am also grateful to each member for exhibiting grace and flexibility in the face of COVID fluctuations.
Please know that together we have the capacity to draw upon Divine Wisdom anywhere, and at any time. Together, we greet every challenge with resiliency and openness and we shall overcome.
May our minds and hearts be at peace as we face new challenges.
Be well…
President Cleo MeriAbut Jarvis
Welcome to our newest members, Jerome and Janelle Henderson who joined December 3.
Michele Baehr sponsored the Hendersons and we are lucky she did.
They are hard working, community oriented people that will be tremendous assets to our Club! 
On November 19, District Governor Joe Loughman shared valuable information to the Evening Club. He provided important insights to happenings in District 7410. He is definitely passionate about Rotary and his enthusiasm is contagious!
 
 
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.
