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.

Chambersburg is like many other communities where homelessness among high school students is a growing concern.    Recently Rotary Club of Chambersburg worked in cooperation with Chambersburg Area School District to support the needs of homeless students.   
 
The Rotary Club of Chambersburg Satellite has provided hygiene supplies for kits that can be used by students at the school. It was brought to the attention of Club members that many of these students also face challenges in getting their clothes laundered.   Through the Rotary Club of Chambersburg Foundation, monies were provided to purchase a washer and dryer for the high school. The appliances were installed near the locker rooms for the students use.

The jackpot continues to grow.  It was $404 after sales last week, and should be about $450 this week.  There are only 8 cards left, and in addition to the Jackpot Card there is still a $20 winner and a Draw Again Card on the Big Board.  You have to play to win (remember half of each week’s sales goes to our Foundation), and of course you have to be present.  So hopefully we will see you at this week’s meeting.

Deborah is a 9th grade student and the daughter of Marc and Kristen Fry. Deborah is a sweet and delightful young lady. She enjoys hanging out with friends, watching movies, and drawing. In particular she likes watching romantic movies and drawing things in nature. She loves to have fun and laugh. Outside of school she attends the King Street Church and also assists her mom by watching children while her mother teaches an English program. In school, her favorite class is art and she also assists in the office on the Trojan Team. Deborah is originally from Haiti and when she first came here she did not speak English, however she picked it up in about a year. She did mention that one of the drawbacks of Chambersburg is that it is too cold and she preferred the warmth of Haiti.

Deborah’s teachers have wonderful things to say about her…here are a few excerpts: "All the adjectives dealing with great, wonderful, excellent, hard-working, superb, outstanding, etc… describe Deborah.  I have never met a student like Deborah Fry, She has so much to offer in class and to her peers.   When you have a dream of the perfect student, Deborah Fry is it, only she is the real deal.  She is very appreciative of all of her teachers.  I cannot say enough nice, kind words about her.  She is very nice, respectful, soft-spoken, hard-working, and smiling. She completes all of her work on a regular basis and does it with perfection. She is a great role model for her peers and is always willing to help any of her classmates who need the assistance. She is not afraid to ask questions in or outside of class. She is truly an individual with unlimited potential."

Deborah has earned a 3.9167 GPA and is in the top 16% of her class. Upon graduation, Deborah would like to pursue cosmetology or something in the art field.
 

Lauren is a 10th grade student and the daughter of Allen and Amy Mellott. Lauren is a very busy young lady. She likes playing field hockey, singing, and reading. Her favorite genre to read is realistic fiction. She is also involved in Girl Scouts.  She is an active member of her praise band for youth group as well as involved in the glee club, jazz band, and band here at CASHS and performed in the spring musical, Oklahoma. She has pursued leadership roles in the student government and is the 10th grade class president and has volunteered her time during the school year with school related functions like the MORP dance. She also ran for a position as the Junior Student Member of the State Board of Education and was one of 6 finalists.

Her teachers have these things to say about her, "Lauren Mellott is a well-rounded individual who fellow students of all walks admire and like. She is a leader in and out of the classroom. She asks questions and is open to helping her peers with concepts that she understands. She says she likes helping others and likes learning new things, in particular in the area of science."

Lauren maintains a GPA of 4.274 and is in the top 5% of her class. Upon graduation, Lauren would like to attend college and as of now is interested in pursuing a career in the pharmaceutical field possibly at Duquesne or University of Pittsburgh.

Each year, the Chambersburg Rotary Club sponsors banquets for the CAHS  Girl's Soccer and the Boy's Football Teams. As coaches, boosters, parents and  students gather to celebrate the seasons of our local athletes, we see a glimpse of the emerging leadership within the teams, and their hopes for the future through the relationships and talents that have developed this year. The young women  and men who are today’s athletes will soon be preparing for college and careers, and the experience and memories they have gathered this season will help them develop into strong community members and leaders for our  future. As Rotarians we can be proud to help support the development of  these students. Rest assured that each year new talent emerges that will strengthen our club and our community in the future. It’s simply up to us to engage their interest.

ImageThe newly formed Chambersburg Area Senior High School Interact Club celebrated its Rotary International charter on May 24th, during the annual Rotary Awards Dinner at the Orchards Restaurant.  Chambersburg Rotary initially sponsored the youth service club, last fall at the high school.  It was formally organized in December of 2011, with 17 students.  

 

Club Advisors, Unique Patterson and Steve McNew introduced the newly elected officers, Jade Reed, President, Erica Newton, Vice President, Wayne Webber, Secretary and Alexandra Bubak, Treasurer.  Ms. Reed reported on their first service project, “Read Across America”, when members read to all classes at Buchanan Elementary School.  They also volunteered at the Chambersburg Rotary Golf Ball Drop, which helped to raise money for local high school scholarships.  The 2012 Rotary Scholarships were presented to Lori Moore and Chelsea Miller.

 

Jason Pyatt, President of Waynesboro Rotary and District Interact Chairperson, commended the organization of the CASHS Interact, which supports our “new generations youth” to accomplish goals with tremendous energy.  Eileen Finucane, past President of the Chambersburg Rotary, was instrumental in the formation of the club and presented membership certificates to those present, along with the Charter and club banner.  She was also named Rotarian of the Year, for her perseverance in forming Interact at CASHS and dedication to Rotary.

 

The Interact Club is a non-denominational organization for students dedicated to local and International service.  Interact is sponsored by local Rotary Clubs that provide guidance and support.  It is open to all students from14 to 18 years of age.  There are currently over 250,000 Interact members in over 11,000 clubs worldwide.  The week of November 5th is World Interact Week, when Rotary celebrates the accomplishment of young people and supports their endeavors.

 

Rotary is the world’s oldest and largest non-denominational service organization with 1.2 million members in 32,000 clubs worldwide.  Their motto is “Service Above Self”, and Rotarians participate in community service and international projects.  Other youth sponsored projects include, Rotary Youth Exchange, College Scholarships, and Youth Leadership Conferences.  For more information on Interact, contact Steve McNew at at mcnewste@chambersburg.k12.pa.us or visit the Chambersburg Rotary web site at www.chambersburgrotary.org

ImageI want to take the opportunity to say thank you to everyone who participated in the Christmas gift bag project for the Sam's Kids program at the YMCA. (I had hoped to say so in person tomorrow but I will be home with my mother.) Whether you shopped yourself or donated funds for a bag, please know that you put a wonderful smile on a child's face.
 
I have to say that this experience was a lot of fun. I had a great time shopping with Cindy Richards (Thanks, Cindy, for chairing the project.) The bag "stuffing", which was completed by a Saturday morning group of students from the high school, was also rewarding as the students really appreciated the opportunity to give of their time to help others. (They also liked the visual of two truckloads of gift bags!)
 
I would like to wish everyone a holiday season filled with much love and great joy.  Thanks again and Merry Christmas!

A small group of Chambersburg Rotarians braved the elements (in this case, sun and 90 degree weather) on Saturday, July 24th, to help the Therapeutic Riding Center develop a Sensory Trail. Many of the riders are autistic children. The idea of the Sensory Trail is to provide visual, aural, olfactory, gustatory and tactile sensation stations along the trail. For example, one of the stations is an herb garden where the riders can touch, taste, and smell growing herbs. Another is a section of trail with wind chimes and a bell that the riders can ring as they pass. 

There is also a section of wooden boardwalk and a section of sand where the riders can experience the different sound and feel of the horses’ hooves as they pass. 

We had a great bunch of workers that included not only Chambersburg Rotarians, but also some people from Rotarian Clint Bolte’s Bible Study Class, and some volunteers from the Riding Center. Thanks to everyone who helped.

Kudos to Rotarian Mike Kalathas who donated the food, and to Secretary Sweet Sue McMurtray and President Theresa Bachman-Myers for setting up a great picnic lunch at the Riding Center following the project.
