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.
 
 
 

 
 
 
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.

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."

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.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
On June 14, 2013 Penn State Student Lauren Shevcheck became a quadriplegic as a result of a devastating swimming pool accident.  Huntingdon Valley- Churchville  Rotary  members, pictured above,  removed the Shevcheck  heavy duty rear  deck, allowing for wheelchair accessibility and other critically needed home adaptations.

Meet Rotary’s new president
This excerpt from the July issue of The Rotarian magazine profiles the 2015-16 RI president. Before he gives a speech, K.R. Ravindran doesn’t like flowery, adulatory introductions. They make him uncomfortable. The 2015-16 Rotary president would rather keep a low profile and share the credit. If it were up to him, you probably wouldn’t even be reading this article. Negotiating Days of Tranquility during the Sri Lankan civil war so that health workers could administer drops of polio vaccine? Although it was on his desk that the agreement landed, he says, a lot of people worked to make that...

Early cancer detection is saving lives in Sri Lanka
More than 20,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year in Sri Lanka, and many of them prove fatal. The Rotary Club of Colombo, Sri Lanka, set out 10 years ago to save some of those lives by establishing the Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Centre.  In partnership with the National Cancer Control Programme and the Ministry of Health, the center in Colombo has screened more than 35,000 patients, mostly low-income, and detected more than 7,500 cases of abnormalities that required further investigation. The Rotary Club of Birmingham, Alabama, USA, donated a mammography and ultrasound...
