The Rotary Club of Harrisburg is one of 34,000 Rotary clubs now located in over 200 countries. Our centennial anniversary of service to the local and global community was celebrated in May, 2011. Locally, since 2001, RCH has provided over $247,800 of support directly to the Harrisburg School District, Harrisburg school student college scholarships, Ecology scholarships, scholarships to the Rotary Leaders Conference, and countless volunteer hours for these and other youth focused projects, including 300 students that received free vision screening.

2013-2014 Report from the President

jeffboswellThe Rotary International theme for 2013-14 was Engage Rotary, Change Lives. This theme demands involvement.  As President, I have witnessed an attitudinal change in our club as we increasingly recognize more service opportunities, locally and internationally.  Our service gives individuals and corporations a reason to be members of The Rotary Club of Harrisburg.  This “Year in Review” details our accomplishments.  What the report does not show is the work of over 30 active committees that support our meetings, projects, and service opportunities.

Our pancake breakfast continues to be our largest project in terms of participation and funds raised for our service opportunities.  On Harrisburg High School’s Homecoming Day we served pancakes to approximately 1,000 people.  We seized the opportunity to make more people aware of Rotary, including news coverage on ABC 28, as its news anchor participated in our event.  We raised funds for the Harrisburg School District’s homeless student program, and we built camaraderie among our members.  Interestingly, Rotary International President, Ron D. Burton, flips pancakes at his club’s main fund raising event in Oklahoma.
