For the last two months the Langhorne Rotary Club has been utilizing Zoom as the meetup app of choice.
Rotary members have been finding projects to benefit the community.
Some have given and encouraged others to donate blood.
Others have been delivering lunches to children at local school sites.
One major project has been to gather funds to purchase iPads and present them to the Statesman Rehab/Nursing Center.
This enables residents to contact relatives and friends.
The Rotary club also matched a grant from the Rotary District Gundaker and is giving $800 to the Redeemer Lutheran Church Food Pantry in Penndel.
The Langhorne Rotary has also joined with a number of local organizations to raise funds to build the Veterans Home Walk and Wheel Way at the Delaware Valley Veterans Home in Philadelphia.
The goal is $50,000.
Donations can be sent to the Rotary Club of Langhorne, P.O. Box 23, Langhorne, 19047, PA.
Or you can donate online at https://www.gofundme.com/f/veterans-home-walk-and-wheel-way.
In February the Rotary sent students Alana Danson and Regina Schroeder to the Rotary District Youth Leadership Awards training program at Valley Forge.
Madison Heintz was sponsored by the Feasterville Rotary.
Before the closing of the Neshaminy High School, Interact members from the high school conducted a Seatbelt Challenge, Rock Your Socks for Down’s syndrome and Show Your Stripes for the Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia.
The club also had a fundraiser at Jersey Mike’s for the Sunshine Foundation.
Club members have also made it possible for high school seniors in the Neshaminy area to fill out applications for the Walter Styer Scholarships and the Eugene W. Hieber Bucks County Technical Scholarship.
Rotary is closely monitoring updates and recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to ensure the safest and most appropriate actions are taken for their members.
