Rotaplast
 
We sent a team to help with Rotary's international Rotaplast initiative, serving children with cleft palate. A note from the field:

A Huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out and supported this fantastic event.

Thank you for all that you do and we look forward to our continued collaboration in the future.
 
2019 Kenya Dental Hygiene Trip
This year we were honored to send a team of Rotarians and dental professionals to Kenya to share their expertise with locals in need. We partnered with our sister Rotary club there - what a joy!
Here are a few pictures from the trip. We were able to see over 300 individuals over just a few days.

The Thomas J. Cassidy Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Logan Weiss and Liam Weiss during the July 16th Blue Bell Rotary ceremony led Tom Cassidy.  Tom joined us to present and share with us the special meaning that the Cassidy Scholarship holds. Thank you, Tom. We think the world of your family. Logan Weiss and Liam Weiss talked about their passion for service from an early age and they continued that passion for service through their high school years.  We wish them all the best as they continue their education, going to the same university from which Tom Cassidy graduated - University of Pittsburgh.
The Four Way Test is, put simply, a yardstick code of ethics that helps us to be better Rotarians, better citizens and better friends. Since it’s adoption, the test has been translated into over 100 languages and is used around the world as guiding set of principles.
 
Every year we hold a contest for students in our district to give a speech. We're so proud of their hard work, dedication, and community efforts. Congratulations everyone!
The Rotary Club of Blue Bell teamed up with Wissahickon Middle School Interact club to bring much-needed classroom supplies to primary schools in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya through an organization there called SHOFCO. To help raise funds for the Nairobi primary school classroom supplies, the Interact Club held a “Pie Your Principal” event on May 30. 
 
We had the wonderful opportunity to meet some fellow Rotarians from England on their trip to our district. Such an honor to spend time and serve with you all.
The Beat the Streets Wrestling Program of Philadelphia is committed to helping establish youth wrestling programs in the Philadelphia metropolitan region.  The organization will foster the holistic development of student-athletes by providing the resources to support wrestling and an academic tutoring programs throughout the greater Philadelphia region. Beat the Streets Philadelphia was founded on the principle that all children have the potential to become productive citizens when provided the proper support.  This belief has endured since the establishment of our first program in 2009 located in the city of Camden, NJ.  To this day, the organization remains laser focused on running wrestling and mentoring based youth development programs for underprivileged student-athletes that alter the trajectory of their lives.
 
Today it's considered the best wrestling room in Philadelphia. It is a charter school which has 350 students and 120 of the students are wrestlers. The ribbon cutting ceremony was amazing! We are blessed and honored to be working with such an organization. Thank you for all your hard work! 
 
 
 
This year we were honored to support the Wissahickon Boys and Girls Club and Delta with gifts and funding for their coming year. Thank you for all you do for the youth in our community!
On October 20th, the Rotary Club of Blue Bell donated and planted 45 trees at Montgomery County Community College.  The College's Sustainability Club also assisted in the planting.  This project was done in response to the request from the last year's Rotary International President for every Rotarian to plant a tree to help slow global warming.  The Blue Bell Rotary Club was proud to help beautify the College campus while helping the environment.
