Rich Kozub, Sr. is one contented man after another successful Rotary golf outing fundraiser to battle Rett Syndrome. Rich and his sons Mark and Rick, along with a legion of Rotary volunteers, orchestrated the 15 annual outing (13 of which benefited Rett) on May 11 at "Five Ponds " in Warminster, PA. The cause is extra special to Rich, because his granddaughter is afflicted with this rare illness.
Rich commented... "The outing seems to get better every year. Out on the golf course, all the holes are busy, people are playing and all the money goes to Rett Syndrome. And that's the greatest part about it!".
A buffet dinner with a great gifts raffle concluded this amazing day for Huntingdon Valley - Churchville Rotary.
Yes, Huntingdon Valley - Churchville Rotary certainly "got game" as shown in the 2 photos above. On June 10, Jim Shallcross rolled out video of his historic "game" hunting expedition to Western Canada. June 17 marked the club's annual return to a Trenton Thunder "game". Attendees received a glimpse of the Phillies' hopes for the future as the opponents were the Phils' Reading farm club.
While most of us live without want, there are still hard times for many in the area. The Huntingdon Valley- Churchville Rotary is partnering with the Cowhey Family Warminster ShopRite to help fund our club's charitable projects through the "Save- A- Tape" Program. Simply label your register tape with the club's name and drop it in the collection box in front of the store. A percentage of sales will be donated to the club. The Warminster ShopRite is located at 942 W. Street Road.
It was a cool, cucumber crisp spring day. Huntingdon Valley- Churchville Rotary held its annual "Fish-A-Long", Saturday April 25 at Lomirer Park in Abington. One hundred kids and their families attended from the immediate area and Philadelphia. The purpose of the event was to introduce children to the sport of fishing.
The "Fish-A-Long" is the "brain child" of long time club member Dick Freed. Said event co-chair Ken Barber, " the "Fish-A-Long" brought together people of varying ages and backgrounds to enjoy a common experience - families spending time together, parents teaching children new skills, people of all ages rediscovering the joys of nature, inner city young people experiencing the open space of the park. It was a rewarding day for Rotarians and the community."
Kerri Czekner, Villa Joseph Marie Highschooler, cleverly contrasted "extroverts" and introverts"as her four way test speech contest topic
at a recent HV-Churchville Rotary meeting. Beside Kerri is Chris Potter, Assistant Governor, District #7430. Way to go Kerri!
