On Sunday, July 16th our Club attended the Pirates versus Cardinals game at PNC Park with a pre-game tailgate hosted by Member Mike McElhaney.  The Pirates walked off in the bottom of the 9th to win 4-3.  What a great day to see the Buccos win!!

 

Attached is the flyer Autumn spoke about yesterday regarding Blessings in a Bag for foster children.

 

Last year around this time, Kayla Seyler came in and spoke about this non-profit she started.  It has really blossomed and now she is working on a drive for more bags.

 

If you choose to pack a BAG, you can bring it to Rotary and Autumn will deliver it to Kayla. 

 

 

At Monday's meeting (6/26/17) our Club inducted and swore in President Bret Atwood for his second term (2017-2018), as well as the Board of Directors for the upcoming Rotary Year.  In addition Ed Dunmire presented President Bret with his Paul Harris Fellow.  Pictured below is Club Member and Past President Herm Krummert swearing in President Bret and the Board of Directors, as well as Ed Dunmire and President Bret with his Paul Harris Fellow certificate, pin, and medal.  Here's to another great Rotary year!!!!

At our Club Meeting on January 9th we were visited by exchange student Lea Birnbacker from Spain.  Lea presented a wonderful program on Spain and her experience here in the U.S.  Lea is spending her Senior year here in the U.S. as part of the Rotary Youth Exchange program.   Lea was joined at our meeting by Jeff Simmons of the Zelienople Club, Outbound Youth Exchange Coordinator for District 7280 and Beth Marshall also of the Zelienople Club, Youth Exchange Co-Chairman for District 7280.

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 and/or Pat Wolfe.
 
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 hope to raise $2,000 for the fund.
 
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

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.
