Locke Harvest Festival Recap:

Our participation in the festival was a positive one. Congrats to Levi and Mike for their first place win in the chili cook off.  We had many participants at our pumpkin carving station. In the future more “hands on” help with carving would be beneficial.

Pancake Day is complete for another year. Update will be provided once bill from Modern Market received.

We continue to sell beef raffle tickets with drawing slated for December 2nd.

Foundation Update:

We currently stand at $2800 in pledges, which is $60.88 per capita and thirty seven percent of our goal. Eight Rotarians from the club have enrolled in Rotary Direct.

Another Paul Harris Fellowship for Valerie

At this week’s meeting, Moravia Rotary Club President Wayne Weibel presented Valerie Collins with her fourth award of a Paul Harris Fellowship.  In his remarks, Wayne cited Valerie for “repeatedly going above and beyond…to do good in the world.”  A Paul Harris Fellowship is awarded to a person who contributes at least $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation’s Annual Fund, Polio Plus, or approved Foundation Grant.  Valerie has served for several years as the club’s Foundation Chair, where she leads by example.  While presenting her new lapel pin, Wayne asked her to “wear this pin with pride in honor of all the lives that you will reach through your generosity.”  Val’s husband, Tom, proudly attached the new pin to her lapel and led the club in a round of applause.Val PHF+3

Plans for the Moravia Rotary Club to participate in the Locke Harvest Festival 10/28 are coming along. Sheils Farm has agreed to donate 5o pumpkins to be used for our pumpkin carving venture. Wayne is reaching out to Walmart and Wegmans for assistance with purchasing pumpkin carving tools. Any proceeds will benefit the Hope food pantry here in Moravia. Thanks to various members we will also have teams participating in the chili cook off portion of the festival. Shawn and Stuart will assist with the pumpkin carving and Tom will be helping to man a duck game.

The club is also moving forward with a raffle for a side of beef. Tentative plans include drawing for the winner at Christmas in Moravia in conjunction with the 5K. This is a new fundraising venture for the club.
