Oct. 7, 2010: Twenty Rotarians and a guest (CalleyWarman, Donna Schuck’s daughter) were present as Marv

Rudnitsky presented Rotary around the World. Marv shared information about “simple” ideas that turn in to great

Rotary humanitarian projects. For example, In the USA, a Florida club developed a children’s exercise program to fight obesity; a Club in Canada did a mountain bike program that raised substantial funds, and in Australia a Club developed

an anti graffiti program. Donna Schuck presided and introduced new member Chad Cohrs.

Announcements: Bob Soper announced that both clothing and coats may be donated to the Snyder County Red Cross,

as part of the District’s Warm-up program. Gently used coats and clothing of all sizes must be donated by next Thursday. Nominations Committee (Chair Donna Schuck and members Mike Hayes and Jeff Edmunds) will report a slate on Nov. 4, with elections held Nov. 18 at our Annual Meeting. Bob Fogle announced that the Club has received a check in excess of $600 as our share of monies raised through Savor Selinsgrove. John Fischer expects gross funds raised in the Golf Tournament to be approximately $20,000. A signup sheet was circulated for help at the Halloween Parade scheduled

for October 19 to distribute candy at the end of the parade. See Donna Schuck to volunteer. Our thoughts are with

Joyce Anderson for a speedy return following a medical leave of absence. District Foundation Dinner is scheduled for

11/18 at La Primavera, Lewisburg at a cost of $25 per person. See John Stokinger for additional details.
