President's Corner
PolioPlus is Still a Plus
Greetings Fellow Rotarians:
Hope this finds you well and in good Spirits.
For some people… community service is all about the act of giving. But for Rotarians… it is indeed their way of living. The Rotary example of the “giving way of life” inspires others to do the same. So
Give all you can…
As often as you can…
In all the ways you can…
To all those you can…
For as long as you can…
As the month of October begins, be reminded to rise to Rotary International's challenge and give to the cause of supporting PolioPlus. Your gift of $26 will help to eradicate polio in the two remaining countries. It will also help to activate the PLUS by providing the many added benefits of the PolioPlus program… such as a hand-operated tricycle to persons crippled by polio, access to clean water,  medical treatment for those impacted by polio, mosquito nets to prevent transmission, or soap to prevent contamination.
Just a little giving… extends someone’s living.
President Cleo MeriAbut Jarvis
New Members
 
A big Stroudsburgs Rotary welcome to our two newest members that were installed on 9/24. Don Hanning sponsored Ed Shaffer, director Monroe County Minsi Council Boy Scouts of America. Karen DeMatteo sponsored James Taylor, a 40 year Rotarian who recently relocated to the Poconos. Both new members bring a wealth of experience, education and spirit to our club. They will definitely be assets to the Greatest Rotary Club in the World.
