Rich Kozub, Sr. "beamed" after another successful Rotary golf outing  to battle Rett Syndrome. Rich and his sons Mark and Rick, along with a legion of Rotary volunteers, orchestrated the 14 annual outing (12 of which benefited Rett) on May 12 at "Five Ponds " in Warminster, PA. The cause is extra special to  Rich, because his granddaughter is afflicted with this rare  illness.
 
Eighty-four area golfers participated. Thirteen -Thousand dollars were raised for Rett Syndrome research. A buffet dinner fundraiser with a great gifts raffle concluded the spectacular day.
 

 
It could not have been a more glorious day.  Huntingdon Valley- Churchville Rotary held its annual Fishalong, Saturday April 26 at Lomirer Park in Abington.  Nearly 150 kids and adults  attended from North Philadelphia and Lower Bucks County. The purpose of the event was to introduce children to the sport of fishing.
 
The Fishalong is the "brain child" of long time club member Dick Freed. Said event co-chair Lee Adams, "by doing this we bring communities together. The Fishalong teaches the younger generation the importance of sharing knowledge  and experience with one another. As the kids grow they will remember this day and teach others what they have been taught. "
 
The fish were donated by the Rotary and State of Pennsylvania. "Trout Unlimited" volunteered  to teach children the art of fishing, using equipment provided by the club. Mark Belomo donated a free lunch for the kids.
 
 

 
Professors Evan Laine and Dave Kratzer of Philadelphia  University  spoke at a recent Huntingdon Valley-Churchville Rotary  meeting about the "Single Bullet Theory" explanation of the Kennedy Assassination. See the attached article reprinted from the Bucks County Courier Times.

Rotary Scholar’s unique ability in bringing clubs together
In a municipal hospital in Cubatão, Brazil, a new mammography machine funded by a Rotary global grant provides breast cancer screening to women who previously had to wait for weeks before they could get in for a checkup with a doctor. A Rotary global grant also funded training for medical staff and cancer awareness education for people in the community. Isis Mejias Carpio of Houston, studying at the University of São Paulo on a Rotary scholarship, played an instrumental role in bringing together Rotary clubs in two countries to make the grant possible. Members of the Rotary Club of Cubatão,...
Rick Burns’ thoughtful approach to Iraq and Afghanistan
Humanitarian Rick Burns, a retired civil affairs officer in the U.S. Army, has been helping people in the war-torn countries of Afghanistan and Iraq since 2003. He's seen a lot of good, but he's also seen what happens when good intentions go awry. Take the fertile grounds of Arghandab River Valley in Afghanistan, for example. Burns recalls an initiative to help fruit exporters become profitable again after the war. Cold storage facilities were built, but because no one considered the country's spotty electricity, the facilities ended up being too expensive to maintain. "We really want to make...
Pedaling coast-to-coast for a purpose
Keith Harris is pedaling for a purpose. At the tender age of 50, he's set out on an eight-week, 4,400-mile bike ride across the U.S. to raise $25,000 for The Rotary Foundation. He's also hoping to raise an additional $2,500 for Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport, Massachusetts, where a few years ago he was treated for a life-threatening heart condition. "The trip is sort of my midlife crisis," he admits but it's not the first time he's pedaled across the country. He made the trek about 20 years ago, before he married his wife, Christina. Harris has been a Rotary member for 18 years. He's...
Blown away by the realities of human trafficking
At the age of 17, Jennifer was sleeping on the streets of Atlanta. She'd felt abandoned most of her life, unprotected from her brothers and her mother's boyfriends, who physically and sexually abused her since she was five. And now, kicked out of her house, Jennifer - whose last name is withheld for privacy - was alone and vulnerable. She was soon lured into sex trafficking and was unable to escape for two years. Then she found Covenant House. "Studies have shown that if a young person ends up on the street, within 48 hours someone is going to approach them with the intention of exploiting...
Drug wars, financial setbacks no match for Mexico clinic
About 300 miles south of Ciudad Juarez, one of Mexico's most dangerous cities, is the small town of Guerrero in central Chihuahua. The community is home to the Guerrero Clinic, which has weathered neighboring drug wars and financial setbacks to treat the poor since 1980. Walter Branson, a member of the Rotary Club of Brazosport, Texas, in the United States, has been involved with the clinic since 1983. Branson says the governor of Chihuahua credits the clinic with providing 60 percent of indigent care in the state. The drug wars in Mexico, which began in 2006, initially scared away U.S....
