Upcoming Event - Four-Way Test Speech Contest - March 20th
Four Way Test Speech Contest | District 7390

Four-Way Test Speech Contest

From the earliest days, Rotary has been concerned with promoting high ethical standards.   One of the world’s most widely quoted statements is Rotary’s 4-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor. Every year Rotary districts around the world sponsor high school 4-Way Test contests.

The purpose of the speech is to persuade others while applying the principles of the Rotary 4-Way Test. The goal is for students to make the world a better place, to practice the virtues of critical thinking and ethical decision making, to develop public speaking and leadership skills to positively influence and inspire others regarding an issue that they find passionate.

Let's get a lot of participants this year while we are actively working with our local high schools if you know anyone at a local school or a student that would be interested in participating let us know.














In Case You Missed it - Jan 17th - High Street Billiards

Billiards, pool, snooker, 8-ball, 9-ball, learn all of them!  A sport, long a part of history, in an intriguing location in downtown Pottstown.

Community Needs
Community Needs
From time to time our fellow Rotarians find causes that are near and dear to their hearts and have a great impact on the community that require some giving of items or funds.  This section will house all of those things, from ongoing items to ones for a specific time frame. 
  • The Period Project with the Tri-County YWCA is ongoing. School has started again, and with it, the continuing need to provide feminine hygiene products for girls in Pottstown and the Pottsgroves. Girls who have to miss school because they cannot afford period products lose up to a week each month. Please consider making a monetary or in kind donation. Please reach out to Patti Derr if you have questions, and thank you for supporting equity in education.  Patti Derr at 610-850-4737 or Thank you for your generosity.
  • St. Paul's Diaper Bank is located at 927 N. Franklin St in Pottstown and it provides free diapers, wipes and other essentials to low income families in Pottstown. The Diaper Bank is open every Wednesday from 10am-12pm. We are seeing a dramatic increase in the number of families we serve each week and welcome donations of unopened childrens' diapers and pull-ups in any and every size, as well as wipes. We are the only Diaper Bank of its kind for the Pottstown community and we would like to expand our hours in order to help more families, but we can only do that with donations and community support.
    Rev. Lauren Cain, 215-360-6659

Rotary Youth Exchange

Rotary clubs channel their commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of club activity. Youth Service, one of the five, recognizes the importance of empowering youth through leadership development programs. Rotary Youth Exchange is one of many youth leadership development programs offered by Rotary and was started in 1920 by Rotary International. 

Daphne Lobet, our exchange student from Belgium, has headed back to her home after what has been a year full of great experiences, including her discovery of Chick-fil-A!  Thank you to all the Club members and host families who provided opportunities to her.
Do you know a student who you would like to see have this same growth experience?  Now is the time to talk with them and get them to talk with Lauren McCloskey or Mike McCarthy.  The world is open!
