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!

Thanks and see you soon!

Membership Incentive
Our Rotary District 7410 has instituted an incentive for increasing membership for Rotary.
Based on that incentive from our District; the Stroudsburgs Rotary Club is offering the following to increase Rotary membership:
1)  The Club will be waiving initiation fees of $60 and new member dues for the remainder of 2019 - 2020 and for the year coming up of 2020 - 2021.
2)  The sponsoring Rotarian for the new member will have $100 contributed to the Stroudsburgs Rotary Foundation by the Club in their name.
3)  Applications of the perspective Rotarians will need to be submitted / received no later than 5/11/2020 either Michele Baehr (secretary) or Jeff Gilbert (president).
4)  Initiation of the new members will take place at either a lunch or evening Zoom meeting no later than 5/31/2020.
The extension of the above Incentive Program will be at the sole discretion of the Stroudsburgs Rotary Board. 
The Stroudsburgs Rotary has an opportunity of making a difference in membership for our District; and, aiding our Club with members to carry on our Mission.
In order for the above Campaign to be meaningful, we will need to be asking people to join who are already familiar with our Club and Rotary.  These people would include our spouses, past guests and past Rotarians.  Timing is critical.  Our Club and our Community need people who want to be connected to something that places Service Above Self.
