The Langhorne Rotary Club is now meeting on the first Thursday of the month by Zoom, and the second Thursday of the month in-person.
In August they heard from Karen Mazzarella-Russo, the President of the Rotary District 7450 Gundaker Foundation, which provides matching grants to the 50+ Rotary clubs in the area.
The clubs can apply for Community Service Projects, “Great Grant” (Covid-19 relief), or Vocational Education Scholarships grants.
Over the last year Gundaker Foundation gave over $50,000 in grant money to help in Covid-19 relief such as food pantries and shelters.
Langhorne Rotary received $3,000 in grant money that we gave to local food pantries. For more information on Gundaker Foundation visit www.gundaker.org.
Langhorne Rotary had their third in-person meeting after almost a year of Zoom meetings at the Historic Langhorne Library on West Maple Avenue in Langhorne. Larry Langhans discussed the history of the first library in Langhorne.
The history on the library is fascinating but there is so much more inside the doors. It is home to the history in and around Langhorne. If you have some free time and want to visit, check out their website for more information, www.historiclanghorne.org.
The Langhorne Rotary Pet Fair & Family Fun Day was held the end of August. There were activities for the children bounce houses, pony rides, petting zoo, and exotic animals shows.
They had a great assortment of raffle baskets, seven lucky door prize winners and almost 40 different vendors to visit while enjoying the day. The Pet Parade featured pets and their humans parading around the park; they each received a certificate for participating.
The Rotary is planning to have the Pet Fair & Family Fun Day again next year so make sure you follow and like them on FaceBook: Langhornerotary.
