Roger Spotts
Roget Spotts, Environmental Education Coordinator for Monroe County Conservation District discussed the great educational initiatives that are happening at Kettle Creek. This is a wildlife sanctuary of 166 acres with public access and interpretative trails. In their educational component, they work with all districts in Monroe County to provide in person and virtual programs. They even do snorkeling with the kids in the local creeks. During the Conservation Camp for Teens, there are no electronics!! Imagine. For more information, about this local treasure, visit
Fellow Rotarians, new and not so new, as Fall approaches so do our Rotary Leadership Institute
Classes.  Our club has budgeted for quite a few members to attend either virtually to one of the 4 upcoming events or in person right here in our own District.
Please visit to view the dates and sign up.  If you are a new member or have never taken the sessions before, you would sign up for 
Part I. If you have already completed Part I then you would move onto II or III.  These are usually from 9 am to 2pm if virtually and the in person session will begin at 8am with breakfast.  
Please let the Membership Team know when you sign up as your registration will be required to reimburse you for attendance. This is a great way to learn more about Rotary, leadership and get to know other Rotarians from the Northeast. District 7410 will be hosting an in-person session on Saturday, October 16th, 2021 Lackawanna College Angeli Hall 501 Vine Street Scranton, PA 18509 The cost is $90 per attendee and includes breakfast and lunch.
Feel free to reach out to the Membership Team with any questions.

The top three cash prizes are $5,000, $2,500 and $1,000. To make the event more interesting, smaller prizes are also needed. If you are willing to donate, please see Don Hannig about items such as gift certificates or items from local stores, businesses or restaurants.  These prizes make for a more interesting event as who doesn't like to win something? Please help make this a successful event by purchasing tickets, donating or coordinating with a local business or restaurant to make a donation. The raffle will be held November 7, 2021. More information will be available as we get closer.

The next Roadside Cleanup is a partnership with PenDot on 10/16/2021 at the Sunoco Station at 1229 West Main Street. Many hands are needed to make this a successful effort. Contact Gene Prospero at 570.202.4599. Stay tuned for more information later!
Eagle Scouts
President Don Hannig requested support for members to represent Stroudsburgs Rotary at any upcoming Court of Honor presentation for Eagle Scouts in our area. Rotarian Clarence "Murph" Murphy faithfully represented Stroudsburgs Rotary for over 25 years. Now they're requesting others to share in this experience. Let President Don or Rotarian Ed Schaefer know if you are willing to represent Stroudsburgs Rotary at this most important milestone event for Scouts who worked so diligently. So far we have done 7 and have 1 coming up.
