For Visitors

With Milton Hershey as an Honorary Member, The Rotary Club of Hershey was founded in 1943. Our club consists of over 120 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 $19.00 (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.

Latest News
On October 7, the Club heard from Chuck Bechtel in an historic description of the Liberty War Birds, a nonprofit organization based in Lancaster that meticulously restores and flies Huey Helicopters, many of which saw action in Viet Nam. Through that common experience, which reaches back for decades, in many cases,,the group comprised of mostly veterans provides an emotional tie to all those who fought and then rescued those in peril. Several members of our Club had direct ties to those times and events.
 
On Wednesday evening, October 9, the annual 4 Way Test competition took place at Country Meadows. Nineteen highly talented students from Milton Hershey School competed for the five top spots along with prize money. The event lasted over three hours as the judges carefully listened to each stirring speech about truthfulness, fairness, helpfulness, and friendship, always depicted in uniquely personalized ways. Thanks to the following Rotarians: Diane Paul, Leslie Ingalzo, Kathy Frick, John Wohlgemuth, and Jim Gainer, and two guest judges, Aura Hill and Dick Pfoutz. 
 
There will be no meeting on Monday, October 14, due to the Holiday, so the next meeting will be on October 21 with the students of the month being recognized.
 
However, please take note of the PINTS FOR POLIO EVENT on Tuesday, October 15. See the note below and plan to join the Club for a spooky night of pint-sized, but scary philanthropy!. 
 
Dear Rotarians:
Rotarians across the globe concoct Pints for Polio events to celebrate ‘World Polio Day’ each October, the birth month of Jonas Salk, discoverer of the Polio Vaccine. 
 
The event serves to energize the global campaign against Polio, which Rotarians, and others, have been vigorously waging since the 1980s. The massive effort is only three countries shy (Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan) of eradicating the disease! 
 
On Tuesday, October 15, the Hershey Rotary Club has a unique opportunity to celebrate the Pints for Polio campaign during the Annual Hershey Halloween Parade!  
 
You, along with your Family, Friends, Prospective Rotarians, and All Who Care and Dare, should participate in this Monstrous Pints for Polio opportunity to Eat, Drink, and, be Philanthropically Scary ~ whether you like “Boo’s” or Not! 
 
There will be:  Things for Goblin’; Cider for Sipping, or Witchever Pint of Brew you choose; And, a Cauldron for Contributions to World Polio Day ~ whatever you would pay at your local Haunts, $5’s, $10’s, $20’s ~ will do “Good!” 
 
All this will be under the spell of the Hershey Halloween Parade as it hovers up Elm! And, for the Final Trifecta: All “Pints for Polio” Cauldron Contributions will be TRIPLED!!--thanks to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation!
 
So Please Join the Cause, and Toast Polio to Death!
