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.

“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.
