Rotary Club of Lancaster Penn Square
We meet Thursdays at 5:30 PM
38 N. Christian StLancaster, PA 17603United States
Starting just a few weeks ago under the able direction of President David Holm, our club has made some great changes!
Come meet with us at Character's Pub, on N. Christian St(rear of 38 N. Queen St) in Lancaster. We have a great new look, a private meeting room, great food and a LOWER $5 cover charge.
Also we have just completed the tally for the Second Annual Road Rally held in, and for, downtown Lancaster. This event earned us last year about $2000. This year's event was a huge success, even in the face of a hurricane, earning over $6,000 for charitable uses in Lancaster City.
WELL DONE ALL WHO PARTICIPATED !!!!
Join us this week at Character's for an hour of fellowship, cocktails, and charitable fun.
What is our club up to? Why do we meet and what do we do? This is our SECOND ANNUAL road rally and profits from the event will assist us in making a difference in downtown Lancaster. We are a relatively new Rotary Club, but we have made a difference in our short existence to improve the downtown area. We have given a sizeable scholarship to a McCaskey senior, provided two years of Christmas gifts to needy children, assisted the LEADS organization in the hanging of downtown Christmas decorations, contribute monthly to the food bank at St. John's Lutheran Church, contributed a significant number of children's books (one for each guest speaker) to the Lancaster Public Library and helped many other local organizations as they request our assistance. We also contribute to Rotary International's drive to end polio in the world and to make the world a more peaceful place.
Lancaster Penn Square is really beginning to hit it's stride.
We have several on going projects that need YOUR help.
The Lancaster Leeds Project is getting ready to pull out the Christmas decorations fo the City ! (ouch-already?)
Harry Wirth has the sign up sheet for Saturday mornings to help "fluff" the greens. Come on out for afew hoursof fun and gossip andget the job done fast and early. See Harry.
The First Annual Rotary Road Rally is in full swing. This is going to happen!! Route is planned, sponsors are being lined up, the band is scheduled and a great party is planned for Binns Park on a fall evening. This going to be FUN!
