OPhillip Shenk Betty Hungerford RickDavisThe Boys & Girls Club of Harrisburg will receive $1,000 and Mission of Mercy Inc. will receive $500 after a volunteer from each organization received Rotary Club of Harrisburg’s  “Service Above Self Award’’ for 2015.

O. Phillip Shenk of the Boys & Girls Club and Dr. Rick Davis of Mission of Mercy recently received the annual award during a lunch meeting of the Harrisburg Rotary. Shenk is co-owner/president of Shenk Company, which makes and distributes promotional products. Davis recently became the associate clinical director of Capital BlueCross’ clinical team following his retirement from Cumberland Family Practice, which he owned and operated since 1988.

“Every year our club is proud to recognize volunteers who give of themselves to make our community a better place,’’ said Betty Hungerford, Harrisburg Rotary president. “Mr. Shenk and Dr. Davis are making a positive impact in the lives of those they help.’’

Shenk is past president of the Boys & Girls Club Board of Directors and has been on the board since 2009. He is credited with helping to rescue the club when it was in financial crisis and in danger of shutting its doors. Shenk’s father, Robert, had been a past board president.

Phillip Shenk recruited new members to the board, helped create partnerships with local businesses and oversaw the creation and fundraising for the $175,000 Robert C. Shenk Industrial Arts Center within the Berryhill Street Clubhouse. Named for his late brother, the center offers formal training for children and the community.

For the past seven years, Dr. Davis has volunteered with the Gettysburg-based Mission of Mercy, which offers free primary healthcare, dental care and free prescription medications to the uninsured and underinsured working poor in the region through its mobile medical clinic.

The Mission’s mobile clinic treats patients in Harrisburg twice a month at the Christ in Brethren Church on Derry Street, where it typically treats between 58 and 68 patients.

  • Thomas R. Clements, MD, Urology of Central PA Mon. 9 May, 2016 (12:00 pm - 1:15 pm) Weekly Meetings Topic:  "TAKING CARE OF THE PROSTRATE" Time that we deal with the guys!  Over the past year or so we have had programs about women's health challenges, threats and opportunities .  As most, every member has a guy in their lives that they care about. It's time to address one of the most common threats to men's health and longevity.  We could call this "the ultimate prostrate" as it requires quality attention and care on the part of every man.  Our speaker is a urologist who will cover the risk factors, prevention, detection and treatment options of prostate cancer, the second most common cancer in men, along with the current procedures and information.  Dr. Clements will also discuss the importance of PSA screening by primary care physicians. With a looming threat like this, do any of us dare assume "I already know all about that"?  Plan to attend!
