Featured Speaker & Announcements
President's Corner
Mark your calendars for June 20-26 for an exciting opportunity to gather online with the family of Rotary for our first virtual convention – for free!

Together, we’ll still experience the spirit of Rotary, be inspired by innovation, celebrate our resilience, and explore how clubs are addressing COVID-19. Join us to experience Rotary in action during our Flag Ceremony, witness the power of connection during our general sessions, learn new ways to engage with Rotary during our breakout sessions, find inspiration from our global speakers, and much more.

We have never needed Rotary — and we have never needed each other — more than we do now. We hope to see you online, because Now More Than Ever, Rotary Connects the World. We finished up our Membership Incentive campaign and it was Hugely Successful!  From the start of the Campaign (a little more than 1 month ago) we have approved 27 new members for Rotary.  Our plan is to have all of these individuals inducted before the end of this month.  Congratulations to the new members, to our Club and to Rotary!
REGISTER at to check out all the sessions available.
Thanks and see you soon!
President Jeff Gilbert

Artisan Bread Fundraiser
From the desk of Rotarian Leslie Underhill
About 3 1/2 weeks ago I lost my little Jack Russell of 16 years.   I found myself needing a distraction so I started a sourdough starter.  It needs almost as much time and attention as that little 12 pound rascal.  Through my baking trials I have gotten to making a really beautiful, rustic and tasty Artisan Loaf called Pain de Campagne, which is about a 1 3/4 -2 pound round loaf.  It is made with white, wheat and sometimes a touch of Rye flour, salt, water and yeast (which is the sourdough).  It improves with age for a couple of days after baking and can last nearly a week (if you have self control).  
I'm making 4 loaves a day and and asking for a $20 donation to the Stroudsburg Rotary Foundation.  Last week raised a little over $400 for the Foundation.  I writing to ask for your help.  I am not asking you to buy this bread (you do so much for Rotary already) but I am asking you to tell your friends, family members, neighbors and co workers who are in the area.  The votes are in and this is a very good bread, unlike anything you can buy in this area and we are supporting a great cause.  
Anyone can email me at or reach me at 570-476-0203, and we will deliver or arrange to meet halfway when possible.  If you want to help with delivery, let me know.
