Warminster Park- June 15- On April 23, 1943, U.S. Marine and Huntingdon Valley- Churchville Rotarian  Sam Bonanno was seriously wounded in the South  Pacific, helping to rid our world of tyranny. Following his service in Guadalcanal, Bougainville, Guam and Iwo Jima, Bonanno lived with shrapnel wounds for 76 years, never being recognized for his injuries. Witnesses who could corroborate were killed and a fire in a Missouri war records warehouse destroyed evidence of Bonanno's heroism.
 
Following an intense  advocacy campaign by  Operation Ward 57, a service group for wounded veterans, Sam received his  Purple Heart  in front of a grateful crowd at the organization's  annual run.  Sargeant  Bonanno, thank you for your service!
 
 
June 1- Huntingdon Valley - Churchville received official recognition for its $30,00 donation to the Southampton Library's Capital  Campaign. An enthusiastic crowd of library patrons heard official remarks, followed by a lively presentation by author Bill Double about local root beer king Charles Hires. Pictured above are Mr. Double, Kim Ingram, library director and the Rotary's Dr. Norman Bailey, Sr. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
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.
