The Blue Bell Rotary Club and District 7430 are leading a Vocational Training Team (VTT) in partnership with Drexel University in Philadelphia and Makerere University and the Kampala North Rotary Club in to improve the healthcare for mothers and children in Uganda.

It all started with a conversation at the San Diego Zoo nine years ago. Through curiosity, and his son’s study of pediatric medicine, Blue Bell Rotarian Ron Smith became involved in a much larger cause.  We invite you to learn more at an upcoming public forum.

Community members in Blue Bell chowed down for breakfast to helps support first responders Sunday.

The Blue Bell Rotary Club held its third annual pancake breakfast at the Manor House at Prophecy Creek Park April 27 from 8 to 11:30 a.m. The event featured a special visit from the Phillie Phanatic and Elmo from Sesame Street. Proceeds from the event benefitted the Second Alarmers Rescue Squad.

It was all laughter and smiles as the lovable, green Phillies mascot paraded into the building, causing harmless mischief and posing for pictures wherever he walked. In between the eggs, sausage, pancakes and coffee, those in attendance followed the Phanatic to see just what he’d do next. Later Elmo danced and waived to the many smiling children who greeted him.

Blue Bell Rotarian Polly Beckham developed a new idea for a service project for Blue Bell Rotary Club, and like all good Rotarians she has pursued her new idea to fruition.

It all started with a conversation at the San Diego Zoo nine years ago. Through curiosity, and his son’s study of pediatric medicine, Ron Smith became involved in a much larger cause. Smith, founder of Lansdale’s S-Bond Technologies, met Tusu Tusubira in San Diego at a conference in 2005 training Rotary leaders from around the world. “He had this great smile and was extremely welcoming,” Smith said.

While visiting the San Diego Zoo and observing an African exhibit, Smith asked Tusu what it was like viewing an African exhibit that was meant to represent his own country and continent. From there a friendship blossomed. Smith, a member of the Blue Bell Rotary Club, then commenced a relationship between his home Rotary and Tusu’s club in Uganda - Kampala North.

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett made a stop in Blue Bell to speak with Rotarians about issues facing the Commonwealth.

“Your motto ‘service about self’ is one that many of us could use,” Corbett told the crowd. “It’s a direct motto and it’s very simple. Yet when you think about it it’s very profound. When you consider the impact that Rotary has had, that each of you has had, that’s a result of the service you give back to your community.”

Blue Bell Rotary members visited the Ambler Mattie Dixon Community Cupboard as part of our club’s focus on food initiatives.  We were warmly welcomed and given a short tour to see the food pantry, clothing boutique and education rooms by which the Community Cupboard serves about 400 families.  Food is delivered to elderly clients and the food “store” is open twice a week for families to come in to choose food and supplies they most need.  The Community Cupboard also provides education and basic nursing care.  The Blue Bell Rotary Club provided its support to Mattie Dixon in the amount of $2000 with a check presented to Executive Director Christine Bouley by BBRC members Rusty Beardsley, Bruce Dearnley and Jon Lundy.

Blue Bell Rotary President Rusty Beardsley likes to tease when he talks of the silent auction items being offered in the 2013 edition of Chefs of the Burbs.

“This year,” said Beardsley, “we are particularly excited to have some surprise items, like a glider ride, which will generate very active bidding.”

And if soaring above the earth in a hang glider doesn’t whet the appetite of adventurers out there, how about these live auction items? Read more here
