This week at Rotary - guest speaker Ken Snyder
You probably saw the recent events in Texas where severe winter weather overwhelmed the electrical grid and left many without heat and power for several days. 
Our own Ken Snyder is one of the people behind the curtains that keep us powered up and the lights on by helping manage our electrical grid. 
Ken will tell us more about how this situation arose and what he does to try to prevent similar instances from occurring in our area.

New member application - Garry Rarer
An application for membership has been received from Garry Rarer, being sponsored by Dan Price.

Garry lives in Stowe, PA and his application states that he is an operations manager for Heritage Coach company.  They sell, maintain, and do all kinds of other work with funeral vehicles.  He is an organizer for a local running club and looking to get involved in community activities that we support.

His application was reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors.  If you see Garry at one of our meetings, make sure to introduce yourself and make him feel welcome.

Tri-District Conference 2021
Registration is now open!! 
I am excited to be your guide as we set out exploring new opportunities together at the 2021 Tri-District Conference on April 30, May 1 & 2, 2021.
Our path will take us into a world of leadership, learning, fellowship and fun! All from the comfort of your own home! 
The schedule is FULL of incredible presentations from local and internationally known speakers on a wide variety of topics.  This exciting adventure will also include the opportunity to safely join with fellow Rotarians in service to our communities! Imagine Rotary service happening in 120 communities across southern Pennsylvania and, imagine how our communities will react as we "blow up" social media with pictures and videos of Rotarians in Action on that day. 
The full schedule may be found here:
Join together with me in our exploration. Registration is $25 Conference Fee and $25 Foundation Gala Donation. Please invite all your club members to register now.  
Once on the website, click the REGISTRATION tab. 
D7430 Rotarians will use the GUEST REGISTRATION.

The Pottstown Rotary Club will again organize the community parade to be held on Sunday the 4th of July.  It will begin at 11 am on High Street at Adams and last about one hour.
Steve Smith needs help in decorating our float on Sunday morning - which will be about 8:30 am. 
Deb Penrod is taking registrations for participants to help with the parade.  She needs eight people to volunteer to organize the participants on Sunday morning. 
These people can also walk with the float in the parade. 
We need four people to walk among the parade watchers soliciting donations.  Sprinkling cans will be provided for donations.
We will also need help at the end of the parade to set up the Duck at High and Hanover Sts. and our booth for selling Duck Tickets during the Pottstown GoFourth event on High St. 
We need people to sell tickets from 1 to 3.  The Duck Race will be held at 3 pm.  We will draw certificates to determine the winners.
