New Fundraiser
**SAVE THE DATE - September 30, 2023 - Blues, Brews and Food at the Historic Shawnee Inn
This is a new all in fund raising event and we will need your help.
Experienced Rotarians will help lead us in the right direction but we all need to chip in with Stroudsburgs Rotary fundraising efforts, which will allow us to fund more grants. We had an overwhelming response for grant money this year so we are looking to continue our fundraising efforts to fund as many non-profits as we can next year.
