Taste of Kutztown

To Friends and Members of the Kutztown Rotary Club.


May 24: Kjalar's Program - Friends Welcome (RSVP)

Since Kutztown Area High School's graduation is on Friday, May 31, we cancelled our Exchange Picnic and invited Kjalar to present his program at the Kutztown Tavern on Wednesday, May 24. We invite his host families, his teachers and school administrators, and other special friends. Hence, we need a rough count of how many are coming so Kutztown Tavern can set up for us. We will order from the menu like we normally do, but we will probably be meeting in the upstairs room at Kutztown Tavern.

Please RSVP: rotarians@earthlink.net

Tuesday, Kutztown Rotary Ushers at Flag Day at 7 pm

Flag Day Concert: Tuesday, June 13, 2017 @ 7:30 PM in the Bandshell at Kutztown Park.

We arrive at 7 pm so we can hand out programs as people arrive.

Each year our club volunteers to usher at the Flag Day Concert and on Kutztown Day. This involves handing out programs and "passing the hat" for donations to defray the costs of the events. On Flag Day, the entertainment is provided by the Kutztown Community Choir. On Kutztown Day, we usher when the Allentown Band performs. Also check with Bob Hobaugh for Raffle Tickets for Kutztown Day for yourself and friends.

Note: Installation will start at 6:00 PM at Camp Edmar

At Camp Edmar, June 28, at 6:00 pm. (Google/GPS: 42 Boy Scout Road, Kutztown, PA)

This is the annual installation of our incoming Rotary officers.

Renee has asked that we start at 6 pm, since it is a long, fun evening.

We have a buffet dinner served by the Boy Scouts before the installation. Please sign up at an upcoming meeting.

Things every Rotarian should know: Rotary strives to achieve it's objective of "Service Above Self" through activities in five primary areas.  These are often referred to as the Five Avenues of Service:

  1. Club Service: to make the club strong to achieve its goals.
  2. Vocational Service: to promote the dignity and utility of one's vocation.
  3. Community Service: to improve the quality of life in our community.
  4. International Service: strive for understanding, goodwill & peace in the world.
  5. New Generations Service: nurture youth, provide skills for success.

Rotary Foundation: As a tribute to the first gift we are asking every Kutztown Rotarian to contribute $26.50 or more to Rotary International Foundation. Please make checks payable to "Kutztown Rotary" and give them to Jim Sher. He will put them together with the correct form giving proper credit to each Rotarian. Return to top.
