Blue Bell Rotary Making a Difference - Celebrating Over 30 Years of Service
 
 

Dear friends, 


I would like to welcome you to the website of Blue Bell Rotary. Our club is one of 35,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas. The members of these autonomous clubs are called Rotarians, and we form a global network of 1.2 million business and professional leaders, all volunteering our time, talents, and expertise to serve our communities. We work differently, we see differently, and we think differently, but we exchange ideas, forge lifelong friendships, and take action to change the world. A tall order, right? We are problem solvers. We are opportunity-creators as we invest in the next generation for tomorrow. We are community-builders as we work on projects that have a lasting impact on people’s lives. Put us all together and we fight disease, provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene, save mothers and children, support education, and improve our communities. 

The Rotary theme for this year is Rotary Opens Opportunities. That couldn’t be truer during these unprecedented times as we have the unique opportunity, out of necessity, to do our magic in new and innovative ways. We are transforming the ways we impact our community, raise funds, and engage with new partners. As President this year, I am especially committed to furthering diversity, equity, and inclusion within our membership and in how we serve our community.
 
Our COVID-19 Response Team is an example of how we have adapted to open new opportunities that have a lasting impact on our community. Blue Bell Rotary has engaged all the Rotary Clubs of Montgomery County in our efforts to close the gaps in the digital divide and to support our local businesses during these challenging times.
 
We continue to support our beneficiaries, such as Interfaith Housing Alliance, Second Alarmers, Boys and Girls Club of Wissahickon Valley and many more. Our signature fundraiser, Chefs of the Burbs on November 5 is going virtual this year as we support our beneficiaries as well as our local restaurants that have supported Blue Bell Rotary and the community for several years.
 
If I had to pick a personal theme for this year, it would be resiliency. Just as we are building resiliency in the communities we serve, I have been working hard to build my own resilience during a very challenging time in my life. This community has been a source of friendship and support to me, as it has been to others in our club throughout the years. This is what Blue Bell Rotarians do, for each other and for our community.
 
I invite you to visit our club, in person and virtually to see what an amazing group we are. We have fun together while serving others. We do this, as my hero, Ruth Bader Ginsburg said, “Cause I’ve gotten much more satisfaction for the things that I’ve done for which I was not paid.”
