Soon, my Rotary friends, Spring will be here!  
I walked outside earlier and felt the warmth of the sun on my face and remembered just how good that feels after so many gray days in a row.
We are only 2 ½ months away from the Last Best District Conference Ever. That means you need to start wrapping up your Crystal Citation applications.  
Based on some valuable feedback from a Rotarian, I have updated the citation form to include more things that clubs should be recognized for accomplishing.  
 
 

District Conference

 
Our District Conference team has been busy planning an exciting weekend of Rotary “frocularity”—if you’re not sure what that means, come to Seven Springs on May 3rdand 4thand find out.  
Flying monkeys, Rotary reminiscences, fine food, inspirational talks, and fun fellowship all will be a part of the event.  Registration information will be coming out shortly and I really hope you will join us as we say goodbye to District 7330 and hello to District 7305.
 

we still have a lot of Rotary year left to do good in the world.  

Conemaugh Township Rotary Club has been busy with their Wishes of Christmas.  
In cooperation with Forever Broadcasting, the program grants a minimum of 12 wishes to deserving individuals or families. 
Beginning in October, they solicit the public to submit wishes.   
Clubs, businesses, individuals and grants – with Conemaugh Township Rotary – grant about $25-30K in value each year. 
Some wishes have been:
  • help with medical bills for gravely ill children,
  • providing home heating and food for families,
  • Christmas gifts and clothing, furniture for homeless, etc. 
Neighboring Rotary clubs, as well as, other clubs and individuals have become a part of the program. 
2018 was the 33rd year for the Wishes of Christmas.  
The Conemaugh Township Rotary also hosts the Windber Rotary Basketball Tournament.  This is the longest running basketball tournament in Pennsylvania.  The goal is to showcase local athletic talent and generate funds which are then donated back to the community. 
2018 was the 59th annual event.
The club is excited to host the Diamond Anniversary of the tournament in 2019.

Youth Exchange

Our Youth Exchange Committee hosted the annual Youth Exchange Potluck on February 10that The Lamplighter.  
The students bring food to share that represents their home country and, oh my, what a feast it was!  Fried rice, chocolate mousse, meat cakes, and some things I can’t spell were on the menu.  The students also answered questions about their exchange experience so far and the outbounds shared what they are most excited to learn about their placements. 
Thank you to the Youth Exchange Committee for their efforts to provide life-changing opportunities for young people.
