Mady's Community Dinner

The Satellite Club from the Rotary Club of the Stroudsburgs volunteered at Mady's Community Dinner.  It was a great success!  We had cooked and servced 140 members of our community a wonderful meatloaf dinner.  Organizers of Mady's Kitchen, Laura and Marge Law, appreciate the efforts of the club and said that "sometimes this is the only real meal they get, and we were able to give lots of extra food so they could take home for another meal or two".
Rotarians pictured are John Beljean, Leslie Underhill and Stacy Rodriguez.  They took the reigns on doing the meatloaf prep and all the cooking.  Other volunteers that have helped with cooking, serving and all the clean up included Gail Kulick, Debbie Kulick and Zerla Bertolome.  
If you are interested in helping to serve, the next time the Satellite Club is scheduled to volunteer is October 27th. Dinners are always served the last Sunday of the month so feel free to volunteer then as well!  Email Rotarian Stacy for more info at

Jim "Thunder" Shoopack came to speak to our club about depression and his mission to eradicate the stigma behind it and to educate the public.  His goals are to:
1-Help people suffering from depression and other mental illness to feel better.
2-Make the communities around us aware of mental health illnesses.
3-Remove the stigma behind mental health illnesses; in particular depression
4-Raise money and awareness for non-profit organizations working toward improving the lives of people suffering from mental illnesses and those less fortunate from the US and around the world.
He completed 4 marathons in 4 months in 2006 and hopes to complete 100!  His path to get better was through Faith, Therapy and Exercise.
He left us with these words:
Remember: We ALL have our challenges; some different than others.  Don't let that discourage you from helping others or being friends with them. Or don't let it discourage you to ask for help.  There are people who want to help you!
