Dirt is the #1 pollutant of water...
Adam Shellhammer from the Monroe County Conservation District shared about what is happening in our area and some tips for homeowners to help with drainage.  Every county in PA has its own conservation district.  From their website:
"A Conservation District is a legal subdivision of state government, responsible under state law for conservation work within its boundaries. Self-government is the guiding philosophy of Conservation Districts. Decisions about conservation issues are made at the local level by citizens who understand and want to protect and improve their local environment.

Pennsylvania has 66 Conservation Districts, one in each county except Philadelphia.

Each district is governed by a board of volunteer directors appointed by their local governing bodies, such as county commissioners. Conservation districts provide the departments of Environmental Protection (DEP), Agriculture (PDA) and Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) a way to implement a wide variety of environmental programs that best serve the agricultural, suburban and urban interests of their counties.

The success of Conservation Districts is due in part to their ability to successfully work with local, state and federal agencies and private organizations.

Pennsylvania’s Conservation Districts are a model of effective government and among the most diverse, capable and active in the nation".

Family Promise Receives District Grant
 Our 2019-2020 District Grant was awarded to Family Promise of Monroe County to supply beds and bedding to families who are transitioning from the program to permanent homes.  What a wonderful way to share funds we donate to our Foundation and come have it come back into our hands to do good in the community.  #RotaryFoundation

Bucky's Duck
Church Women United receives funds from Buckies Duck.  $301 was given to this organization.  When a Rotarian leaves the meeting early they put a buck in the duck!
