For Visitors

With Milton Hershey as an Honorary Member, The Rotary Club of Hershey was founded in 1943. Our club consists of over 130 of the area’s most respected business, professional and civic leaders. We get together at weekly lunch meetings, and other functions, to fulfill our commitment to the Rotarian ideals of friendship, fellowship and service to others. We welcome you to learn more about our club and consider becoming a member.

Join Us for a Meeting!

Lunch meetings are held Mondays at noon at The Hershey Lodge. The location and schedule vary occasionally, so please check the calendar. Cost of lunch is $18.00 (Christmas and Valentine lunches have an additional charge). Prospective members are welcome to join us for two lunch meetings at no charge. Dress is business casual.

Wednesday meetings are held at 5:30 - 6:30 pm at The Hershey Lodge Forebay Lounge and Tower Suite Meeting Rooms. The location and schedule vary occasionally, so please check the calendar.

Rotary District 7390 and WGAL present the 12th Annual Teacher Impact Awards Banquet on Monday, May 22, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. at the Sheraton Harrisburg-Hershey Hotel (4650 Lindle Road, Harrisburg). Claude Swartzbaugh’s daughter Crystal will be receiving one of the awards, so we want to have a great Hershey turnout. 
The 2017 Rotary Dinner and Auction was a record-breaking event in several ways.  The club is currently showing a NET revenue of $55,690.78!  Expenses are all in, but there is a possibility of additional funds, so the total may actually be $2,000 - $3,000 more.  We had a higher attendance than in recent years, and we had a higher income in every category except for the live auction.  Since 2009, the revenue generated by the Dinner/Auction has more than double the net revenue!
 
So a HUGE thank you goes out to the entire Auction Committee - your tireless efforts before and during the auction made this possible.  In particular, many thanks to Kendra Mohr for leading the Fundraising and Allocations lane, and for Alex Roca, whose leadership in the auction is spectacular.  The key to the auction success is sponsorships, and Alex has taken the lead in obtaining them...which has made a huge impact.  And thanks to the members who came, who bid and bought, who donated, and supported the event.  Let's do it again next year!

The Hershey Rotary Club is honored to sponsor the Interact Club (Hershey Community Youth Alliance) and two Rotaract Clubs - one at Penn State Hershey Medical Center and the International Affairs Association/Rotaract Club (IAA/RC) at Penn State Harrisburg.  And the young people never cease to amaze us!
 
The IAA/RC at Penn State Harrisburg is just one of over 85 registered clubs and student organizations at Penn State Harrisburg. IAA/RC was recognized as the "Club of The Year"!  In Hershey, the students at Hershey High School raised over $28,000 in their 2nd Walk for Clean Water - which is the largest clean water walk in Pennsylvania! 
 
Many schools are involved in the "THON" efforts through Penn State. THON is a student-run philanthropy committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer.  This year, Hershey High School students raised over $50,000 for THON (in addition to the gifts of their families given directly at the Med Center); Milton Hershey School students raised over $100,000!!  All of these young people are true leaders in their generation, and we support and applaud their efforts to live the Rotary motto of "Service Above Self".
 
On Monday, Coach Brett Myers spoke about his 2016 State Championship Middletown Football team.  Congratulations to him, the team, the school, and the entire community!
Milton Hershey School Freshman David Li shared his winning 4-Way Test essay to the club.  Many thanks to Leslie Ingalzo and the teachers who make the 9th graders aware of both the Rotary 4-Way Test and the Essay Contest.
