Gundaker Foundation Representative from the Wayne Rotary Club Theodora Voulgaris described a service project of collecting Eyeglasses for distribution through Wayne Rotary in partnership with the LIONS Club and welcomes collections at every Gundaker meeting.

The 20th annual Upper Darby GALA was held on Saturday, January 20th before a “sold out” audience at the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center. This event has now netted well over $2 million for the Upper Darby Arts and Education Foundation. All of this represents a very meaningful life achievement for me. Aside from the reality that this fund-raiser over the past 20 years has produced 900+ mini-grants for educational purposes which might not have otherwise been possible, the annual GALA continues to bring the magical joy of music to many thousands of Upper Darby young people. Music is blind! It does not know or care if you are poor or rich, slow learner of brilliant, what color you are, what kind of house you live in, or if you are from an immigrant family (70 languages are spoken in Upper Darby homes)! The performances of the incredibly talented 800 students in ensembles and as soloists in the 20th GALA represented the “very best” ideals of our nation.

  Our District has entered into an exciting partnership with the world renowned Pennsylvania Horticultural Society to plant trees in Heuser Park on the Schuylkill River West Trail in King of Prussia, PA on Earth Day April 22, 2018.  

Rotarian Yaniv Aronson/Public School Teacher Elected Mayor of Conshohocken

I am a local teacher, community college professor and volunteer. Conshohocken has gone through many changes over the past few decades but, looking toward the future, we have to move forward together. We are stronger when we stand together and when all our voices are heard. Small businesses are a priority in our borough as is maintaining a town for longtime residents, families and young professionals. Public safety is paramount as is new construction in an environmentally-friendly way and with strong community input. I have dedicated my life to teaching and mentoring the most vulnerable in our society and believe in fairness, helping our neighbors, and doing the right thing, something I will fight for everyday as your mayor.

Bronwyn L. Martin named District Rotary
Foundation chair
By Bronwyn L. Martin District 7450 Rotary Foundation Chair (DRFC) Thank you District Governor Dawn for nominating me to the District Foundation chair position. I am honored that she, District Governor Elect Paul Quintavalla, and District Governor Nominee Peter Mardinly are confident that I can carry out the responsibilities required. I have been involved with our District Rotary Foundation for over eight years, coming on board when PDG Russ deFuria asked that I serve on, what is now the Endowment Fund. I worked under Russ, PDG Al Marland, and PDG Bonnie Korengel. I’m glad to say that both Russ and Bonnie will continue to work on our District Rotary Foundation Committee; Bonnie as Annual Fund chair and Russ as interim Global Grants chair. I became involved in the District’s End Polio Now campaign when PDG Joan Batory went out to all Clubs and asked for a donation to sign a soccer ball that was going off to India on a National Immunization Day (NID) trip.
