 Oct. 22, 2015:  Rotarians were present to meet Senator John R. Gordner, serving Pennsylvania’s 27th District as State Senator and also as Majority Whip. Gordner was elected to office first in 2003 by special election and then reelections in 2004, 2008, and 2012. Senator Gordner earned his bachelor’s degree from Dickinson College in 1983, and he earned his law degree from Dickinson School of Law in 1987. He and his wife, Lori, reside in Berwick. Their two children, Allison and Cole, are currently attending college. Senator Gordner updated our group on the current budget impasse, the state pension funding and also in great discussion was the Susquehanna Thruway/by-pass project.

Announcements: President Piecuch has appointed the following person to the Nominating Committee: Chair, Dave Lawer; Donna Schuck, Pat Pinkowski, Mary Peterhaensel, and Ryan Felty.*Toby reported that the candy distribution at the Halloween Parade went well, we may want to think about how to make it coordinate better next year.
