Two Hershey Rotarians were the recent recipients of distinguished Hershey Rotary Club awards given in recognition of their community and club service activities.

2020 Hershey Rotary Club Packy Award

Mr. Dale Achenbach of York, PA, a member of Hershey Rotary for over 28 years, received the 2020 Hershey Rotary Club Packy Award for his long term commitment and dedicated service as a past president of the Hershey Rotary Club and as the permanent treasurer of the club where he exerts fiscal policy and oversight of the club's community and global philanthropic activities.

2020 Hershey Rotary Club Community Service Award

Mr. Michael Kinney of Palmyra, PA, a member of Hershey Rotary for over 17 years, received the Hershey Rotary Club's Community Service Award given to an individual who displays exemplary public service to the Community and the club. Kinney is an administrator at the Milton Hershey School and serves a vital role in bringing together a smooth relationship between Derry Township and the Milton Hershey School in areas of community volunteer activities. Kinney is also an active supporter of his church, Boy Scout activities, and a past president of the Hershey Rotary Club.
Our President's Message

Last week we were saddened by news of the death of our President-Elect Mike McCormick. Mike was an unfailingly optimistic person, even when faced with a recurrence of cancer last spring. Mike strongly believed in Rotary and was an enthusiastic participant and leader in the Club. We grieve his death and send our thoughts and prayers to his wife, Heather and their children.

In honor of Mike and his commitment to the American Cancer Society, I encourage all of you to wear pink at our next meeting, October 19. Mike was a Voice of Hope for the American Cancer Society and was a participant in Real Men Wear Pink for the last two years.

We are now entering our seventh month of holding our meetings virtually on Zoom. In spite of these challenges our Club has continued to meet every Monday. Meetings provide the opportunity to catch up with each other and hear presentations from engaging speakers. 

Though our opportunities for service projects are currently limited, I know that part of being a Rotarian is seeking ways to serve our community. We are “People of Action.” In addition to Rotary service projects, many of you volunteer your time and talents in a variety of ways every week. I would like to highlight the many ways we individually serve our community, particularly during this time where it is sometimes challenging to find opportunities for a group of Rotarians to work on a project together. Do you stock the shelves at the Food Bank? Help maintain the grounds at your church or community organization? Deliver Meals on Wheels?  Send me a photo of you in service to your community so that we can celebrate the many ways we continue to be “People of Action” even during the pandemic.

Thank you for your commitment to being a Rotarian.

In Rotary,

Pam Whitenack

President, 2020-2021
