Rotary Relays 2016
The Rotary Relays are Returning in 2016
 
The Tunkhannock Rotary Club recently decided to reinstate the Rotary Relays Invitational Track Meet.  Last held in 2011, the 2016 version is slated for Friday, May 20th at Tunkhannock Memorial Stadium.  Junior high track & field programs throughout the region will be invited to compete in a wide variety of relay events. The event committee, chaired by Rod Azar, plans to reintroduce field events to the schedule, as had been done in the event's earlier years.  Medals will be awarded to the top three Girls and Boys relay teams in each event, and the meet will conclude with championship trophies for the top finishing overall Girls and Boys teams. More information will be forthcoming in the early Spring of 2016.

At the Dec 3 Rotary Club Luncheon, Sandra Lane presented 200 gently used children's books to Rotarian Lou Jasikoff, who is leading the Tunkhannock book drive for the University of Scranton Program. The club voted at our last meeting to buy the 200 books from the Tunkhannock Public Library book store. Students at the University of Scranton put a message in each book and the books are distributed locally and nationwide to families to read to their children. Books are being accepted in the purple collection bins until Jan 6.

Welcome from President Ron Furman
The Tunkhannock Rotary Club is a great organization that I strongly believe in.  We believe in helping people in the community and throughout the world. We have projects such as: purchasing and reading books to children at the library, dictionary distribution to 3rd graders, Foreign Exchange Students, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards and the Drug Take Back Outreach Program.
 
Around the world, we assist in ending polio, provide disaster relief shelters and help with providing clean water and building schools, etc.
 
It is very important to have programs for the children so we can set a good example for them. This all adds up to making our community a better place to live in the future.
 
The Rotary Theme for 2015/2016 is “Be a Gift to the World”. We all have many talents and gifts to contribute to make the world a better place. Please think about joining us to “Be a Gift to the World”.
 
Best Wishes
Ronald W. Furman
President 2015/2016
