Rotary International 2015-2016 Theme


Welcome to the on-line edition of the Rotary Club of Jim Thorpe.  Rotary's theme for 2015-16 is Be a Gift to the World  As we have for many years, we will continue to seek out opportunities for service and have fun doing it so we can increase recognition of our club both in our community at large and at the district level.  


Each year, we sponsor a number of projects and on-going programs as detailed in our Five Avenues of Service.  Prominent among them are clothing at Christmas for disadvantaged children, dictionaries to every third grader and calculators for every fourth grader in the Jim Thorpe Area School District and parochial school, college scholarships to four graduating seniors from three area high schools, scholarships to rising juniors to attend the district's summer Rotary Youth Leadership Awards gathering, a summer day camp here in town, an essay contest, and a student of the month program in which local high school seniors attend weekly Rotary meetings to gain an appreciation of a community service organization.  We continue to support The Rotary International Foundation's Every Rotarian, Every Year Program as well as contribute to the worldwide eradication of polio.


All this is made possible through our three fundraising activites: GhostWalks, Enchanted Evening, and, most recently, a Bed and Breakfast raffle.  See them listed on the left and be sure to try them all!


We are always looking for new members who want to join us in our many activities.  Drop in on a meeting and check us out.



Yours in Rotary,


Clem McGinley, President
