Swarthmore Rotary is sponsoring two $5,000 scholarships to Strath Haven High School seniors. In addition to money we collect from our annual Fun Fair, we also received a donation of money from the former Swarthmore Women’s Club when it disbanded.
The awards are based on financial need and the recipients’ contribution to community service in keeping with Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self”. The awards will go to students who have a notable record of contributing to the community, either local or global. In addition, they should indicate a desire to continue to do so in the future.

Once completed please return your application to your guidance counselor at Strath Haven.
Swarthmore Rotarians Help Out with the Great work at Project C.U.R.E.
Rotarian from several clubs in the District recently spent a Saturday working at the Project C.U.R.E. warehouse in West Grove, PA.
Project C.U.R.E. builds sustainable healthcare infrastructure by providing the medical supplies and equipment that medical personnel need to deliver healthcare to their communities. Since its inception, Project C.U.R.E. has delivered medical relief to needy people in more than 132 countries.
Rotarians from the area lent many hands to sort donated medical equipment and supplies to prepare the material for shipping to areas in need around the world.
Standing beside some of the 75 hospital beds unloaded from trucks are: Brian Casey, Club President Lisa Lee, Club President Elect Joy Charlton, Sue Larson, Theresa Hartzell, and Theresa's daughter, Tara, demonstrating that Service Above Self runs in the family.

ROTARY DIRECT SAVES...
✔ Time — Sign up once to give continuous support
✔ Money — Lower administration costs means more money for programs
✔ Lives — Give to The Rotary Foundation to do good in the world
EFFICIENT. Contributions go directly to The Rotary Foundation, resulting in faster processing and achievement of your club and personal charitable goals.
CONVENIENT. Minimize work for you and your club’s leadership by setting your own schedule of contributions that count toward Paul Harris Fellow, Paul Harris Society, and Major Donor recognition, as well as your club recognition banners.
SECURE. It’s the safest and most secure way to contribute to The Rotary Foundation.
