“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:
