“Welcome Aboard!” That’s my welcome to you for the 2021-2022 Rotary year and it’s also the new name of our District 7430 newsletter. This month our video highlights Rotary’s theme, “Serve to Change Lives” and looks at Literacy Month through a project of the West Reading/Wyomissing Rotary Club known as “Little Free Libraries.” Maybe you will be inspired to do a similar service project. 

We begin every Rotary year by establishing our District and Club goals. This year those goals reflect the goals of Rotary International. Do you know your Club goals?  Here are some of our District goals:

 

Increase our Impact:

  1. Raise $50,000 through the Purple Pinkie Race to Zero 
  2. Raise Annual Fund support in the amount of $200,000
  3. Advance and follow-up media for 15 District grant projects
  4. Advance and follow-up media for 15 Club-funded projects

Expand Our Reach:

  1. Increase existing Club membership by 70 net 30
This Rotary year, District 7430 plans to be the first Rotary district where every club participates in the effort to provide shelter to families displaced by conflict and natural disaster. We challenge every club to meet or exceed their prior support for ShelterBox, Rotary's partner in global disaster relief. When we succeed, our district will be acknowledged on the ShelterBox USA website, at the 2021 Rotary International Convention in Houston, and at the International Assembly. 
 
You can participate by bringing your donation to the District 7430 Stock the Box event on September 10th at The Steel Club. Tickets ($65) include dinner and dueling pianos entertainment and are on sale at EventBrite (7430stockthebox.eventbrite.com). 
 
Donations can also be sent directly to ShelterBox:
101 INNOVATION PLACE, 
SANTA BARBARA, CA 93108
 
For more information contact Linda Mayger or George Morrison
We have heard People of Action stories from throughout the district this year.  Over 25 Rotarians have shared what Rotary means to them.  I encourage you to keep telling your Rotary stories, because when others hear what Rotary means to you, they will want to join us!!  Please view the June video for messages from DG Janet and DGE Bob.  
 
                                                    
 
The DEI Committee would like to invite you to its initial presentation to generate and start conversation within your Clubs.  District-wide presentations are scheduled in the Harleysville Rotary Club on June 9 at 7:00 am and in the Quakertown Rotary Club on June 15th at 7:30 am.  Register here to attend either meeting.  (click here.)
 
We invite all Clubs and all Rotarians to be open to ongoing conversations as we grow healthy and vibrant clubs reflecting DEI.  We are all learning together as we educate, enhance and empower one another.
 
If you have questions, please contact Dan Watson-Bey at dan@easthillmedia.com

D7430 is proud to share more inspiring People of Action stories.  This month we feature two Rotarians who through their desire to serve, have gained meaningful experiences as well as forged lasting friendships along the way.  We hope they inspire you too.
 
District 7430 Recognized by Rotary International
 
District 7430, under the leadership of PDG Herb Klotz, has been award the District Rotary Citation. Our District is one of only 93 worldwide to receive this award which honors Rotary Districts in which at least half of the Rotary Clubs earned the Rotary Citation.  The award recognizes the work of clubs to increase their membership, contribute to The Rotary Foundation, serve their communities, participate in Rotary programs and improve their public image.
 
Thank you to all Rotarians in D7430 that keep our 46 clubs vibrant, growing and serving our communities!!
 
The power of connection we have with family and friends in Rotary call us to action in our communities.  In this month's People of Action video we hear from three inspiring women whose connection to Rotary is deeply rooted in family and service.
