Host Families Needed
We will be hosting a male student Jaan Villem from Estonia next year, and need to identify host families for the school year. Families should live in the Derry Township School District. Thanks to Leslie Ingalzo who has already agreed to be his inbound counselor! Villem will be 16 when he arrives, likes many sports but particularly volleyball, and also enjoys music. Please email Susan Steadman (steadmanhome@comcast.net) if you are interested. We have the first host family identified, we need two more families to host Villem during the 2018-19 school year.

Feel free to bring an appetizer or dessert to share.

Hello everyone!  I’d like to take this moment to extend a very Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms who are Rotarians in District 7390.  New moms, seasoned moms, grand moms, and all the people who have taken on the role of MOM in any capacity, deserve to be celebrated.
 
As moms, we are often the first teachers and role models for our children.  We have such an enormous responsibility to nurture our children and  shape them to somehow contribute to this world and make a difference.   As Rotarian Moms, we have an added responsibility to demonstrate SERVICE ABOVE SELF and the 4-WAY TEST to our children.   As Rotarian Moms, we also have the added challenge of balancing motherhood with our commitment to Rotary and the service projects & activities associated with membership.  As Rotarian Moms, we have the benefit of community networks, friendships, and international fellowship that we can pass on to our children ~ no matter what age they are.  
 
When I joined the Rotary Club of Harrisburg in 2006, my son Michael was 10 and my daughter McCaffrey was 7 years old.  For the past 12 years, they have experienced Rotary through me and alongside me every step of the way.  Rotary has enriched all of our lives.  With much attention toward engaging women in Rotary, it is so important for us to communicate this message outward ~ MOTHERHOOD AND ROTARY CAN PEACEFULLY CO-EXIST!  I’ve seen it at all levels throughout District 7390 and I’ve experienced it myself.  So, congratulations to all the women who have successfully woven Rotary into their families.  Shout out to the women who manage professional careers, happy families, and lives of service. You are all rock stars.  Happy Mother’s Day!
