The Morrisville-Yardley Area Rotary Club

The Morrisville-Yardley Area Rotary Club has been in existence since 1928 and its members can be found volunteering and providing financial support for local and international service projects, running fundraisers and contributing time and effort in order to be more effective in service to the local community and to the world.

The club has been placing more emphasis on the Yardley/Makefield area with a pedestrian signage project associated with the Landmark Towns program and volunteering as Canal Tenders to pick up trash along the Delaware Canal Towpath. Other projects such as helping to revive the Lower Makefield Community Pride Day are on the radar.

The weekly meetings of the club foster networking among business and professional people. There is emphasis on ethical conduct in personal, professional and business relationships.

Locally you can find Rotarians supporting literacy through the gifting of student dictionaries and supporting leadership development programs for local youth. Each year they sponsor student participation in “Camp Neidig,” a regional youth leadership development camp weekend that is organized and run by Rotary.

They volunteer at the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen and support various community service organizations such as the YMCA, the Salvation Army and the Snipes Farm and Educational Center.

Their own Community Service projects include the Annual Community Easter Egg Hunt, the Rotary Recognition Garden to help beautify Williamson Park, and aforementioned Landmark Towns and Canal Tenders projects. Past efforts have included support the Morrisville Bicentennial Celebration, the Robert Morris statue project, Actors’ Net Heritage Theater and Summerseat.

They continue to support PolioPlus, a huge Rotary International project that involves UN agencies, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and others to eradicate polio from the face of the earth.

The club and its members also have supported the Wheelchairs project that provides rugged wheelchairs to those in remote regions who otherwise have to survive without the means to get around in their own communities and Power Up Gambia, a project to provide 24-7 power for a community hospital in Africa.
