Club Happenings & News
 
In October, the Rotary Club of Chambersburg will spotlight the "End Polio Now" initiative by focusing on raising awareness and funds to help reach the ultimate goal of a polio-free world as part of "Polio Awareness" month.
The 2017 Downtown Chambersburg Duck Derby is Saturday, October 7th.
Thank you for securing sponsors, selling tickets and turning in your money to Jack.  Now we're looking for volunteers to set-up, tear-down, and serve as 'duck wranglers.'  Please contact Denis Diloreto.
  
Several members of the Rotary Club of Chambersburg volunteered their time and energy at the Doctors v. Lawyers Gridiron Classic on September 9th  under the lights at CASHS stadium.  After a 30+ year hiatus, local doctors and lawyers clashed on the gridiron for a game of flag football to raise funds to help offset the cost of “pay to play” for student athletes.  After a 20-20 tie at halftime, the lawyers were able pull away for a 53-26 win.  It was a great night, with over $13,000.00 raised for the CASHS Sports Booster Club - thanks for helping to make this a rousing community success!
Dr. Ted Rabold passed away on September 8th after a 2 1/2 year battle with cancer. A celebration of Dr. Ted Rabold's life and faith will be held on Saturday, September 30, at 11 AM in the sanctuary of the Presbyterian Church of Falling Spring, 221 North Main Street, Chambersburg, PA with the Rev. Dr. Andrew Hart and Rev. Dr. William Harter officiating.

Rotarians donated an entire wagon of books and a library house to today's guest speaker Colleen Woy. These items help her efforts to maintain her students reading levels and avoid the "summer slide" as teachers call it. Thanks to everyone who supported the cause.

 Rotary Club of Chambersburg President Mike Connor will pass the gavel to President Elect Theresa Bachman, who becomes club president for the 2017-18 year on July 1.
With only one card on the 'big board' it was inevitable that we would have a jackpot winner.  Congrats to Eileen Finucane!
 
Charles E. Kline, Jr., Age 84, of Chambersburg, PA, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 11, 2017, at the Village of Laurel Run. In Charlie's memory the club retired the lighted attendance board that Charlie had made for the club at the July 6th meeting.
LISTEN TO YOUR FRIENDS -  There were only four cards on the Big Board.  Pete Lagiovane was ready to choose.  He asked the crowd for advice, and then promptly ignored it and selected a different card.  He got a loser.  The card suggested by the crowd?  JACKPOT!!!
 
This week there will be only three cards, the Jackpot card, a $5 winner, and a You Lose card.  We expect ticket sales to be brisk, and that the jackpot will be about $750!  Be sure to attend the meeting and to get your jackpot tickets.

The Duck Derby is less than a month away. There's still time to secure the final Golden Egg sponsorship (and a few others), buy and sell tickets, as well as to volunteer.   Proceeds benefit the Rotary Scholarship program.
 
September is New Generations Month in the World of Rotary.

Thanks to all of the volunteers from the Rotary Club of Chambersburg, along with the Knights of Columbus and George Washington Masonic Lodge, the 53rd Annual Chicken N Stuff fund-raiser was another huge success.  And many thanks to all of the community members who supported this cause, which benefits the Franklin County Therapeutic Riding Center.
