Kittanning Rotarians:
Last year the Kittanning Rotary Club  started the Kittanning Rotary Foundation. It was started under the leadership of the late Len Meneely. It is managed by the Community Foundation.
We would ask you to consider making a donation to this Foundation in Honor of Len Meneely who passed away suddenly a few weeks ago.
Our club has agreed to make a $100 contribution to the Kittanning Rotary Foundation in honor of Len.
The original goal when the fund began was to have every member contribute to the fund and also to have many of us list this foundation as the beneficiary in our wills.
Please consider making a contribution to the Kittanning Rotary Foundation.  Just let Mike Daugherty know and he will arrange to bill you and he will make sure the funds are distributed accordingly.  The amount, of course, is up to you.  We should be able to raise $2,000 for the fund,  if we all participate..
As the fund grows, it will be a source of revenue for us to provide scholarships and services to the community.  The fund must first grow to $10,000 before interest bearing grants may be awarded.
Thank you for your serious consideration.
Please contact Mike McElhaney or Mike Daugherty for more information  
The Kittanning Rotary Club is excited to announce that current member, Dr. Kara Shirley, and her husband Mark had their baby at 4:35am Wednesday, November 2nd.   They had a little girl, Lena Jean, 7lbs 8oz; 20 inches long. 
Congratulations to Kara and Mark!!!

Dr. Harry "Pat" Wolfe, Jr., 93, of Kittanning, PA, died Thursday, October 27, 2016, at Good Samaritan Hospice in Cabot.

He was born May 16, 1923 in New Kensington, PA, the son of Harry O. and Vera (Craig) Wolfe, and the grandson of Clark and Ann Craig of Widnoon, PA. His gifts from God included his wife, Jean, daughter Patricia Brown, of Manassas, VA; sons, Richard Wolfe and wife, Jeanette, of San Mateo, CA, Robert Wolfe and Margie Mitchell, of Bloomfield, and Daniel Wolfe and wife, Carol, of Kittanning. Dr. Wolfe was blessed with step-children, Rick Walker, Mrs. Connie Thomas, Mrs. Karen Spoonster, Keith Walker and Mark Walker. In their combined families, Pat and Jean have been blessed with 18 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his first wife, Aileen; brothers, Oakley Charles Wolfe and Rolland Duane Wolfe; sister, Sally Wolfe; and grandson, Ryan Colwell.

Pat was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Kittanning where he was a certified lay speaker. He was very active in the Western Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church, a leader in older adult ministries at the local and national level, and served as a short-term missionary in Haiti.

Dr. Wolfe was a navigator in the US Air Force in World War II, serving as a member of a B-24 bomber crew flying 35 combat missions and also becoming a navigator with the Air Transport Command.

While at Bethany (WVA) College where he received his degree in mathematics education, he lettered in basketball and baseball and served as president of the Psi Chapter of Beta Theta Pi fraternity. Pat received his master's degree in school administration from Western Reserve University and a doctorate in education from Penn State University. He began his public school career as a teacher and then was an assistant principal for Latrobe Public Schools. He also held administrative positions in Claysburg, PA, Meyersdale, PA and Armstrong County, PA. In 1975, he became the superintendent for Grove City Public Schools and in 1979 returned to the Greater Latrobe School District as the superintendent, retiring from that position in 1986.

He was a member of Phi Delta Kappa, a long-time Rotarian and a member of the Kittanning Elks Lodge. For a number of years, Pat enjoyed being a judge for the PA Junior Miss Program at both the local and state levels. He spent time as a high school basketball and track coach, and was a certified PIAA basketball official in his younger years. He was an avid baseball fan and golfer.

Pat enjoyed sharing his life with both his immediate family and extended families, and tried to make a positive contribution to the communities in which he lived.

The family will receive friends from 7-9 PM on Sunday, November 6, 2016 and from 2-4 and 7-9 PM on Monday, November 7, 2016 at Bauer Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Inc., 515 N. McKean Street, Kittanning.

Rotary International
End Polio Now

One of Rotary’s primary missions is the eradication of polio, which is a world-wide effort with many well-known supporters. Our local Kittanning Club supports Polio Plus efforts and recently has been pleased to see the pandemic countries decreased from four to three (India was removed) Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nigeria remain in need of immunization.
