Welcome Maggie

Congratulations to all students on their accomplishments who we hope to see back as Rotarians. Rotary will meet next Tuesday at Sandy Run to welcome local Valedictorians.

Rotary Teams with First Presbyterian Church to Help a Neighbor in Need

On Saturday, May 2, members of First Presbyterian Church, Flourtown and The Springfield Township Rotary Club came together to help a struggling family in the community. The two organizations share a core mission of serving others, as well as a desire to give back to the community in which they reside.   This natural synergy led them to seek out a local resident in need of some helping hands.  Through networking they were introduced to a Wyndmoor family who has been through, and is still facing, some challenging circumstances.  This deserving family has a home in need of a little love and care; a perfect project for this hands-on mission team. The goals of the project were to replace worn out windows so the home will be better prepared for next winter, clean up the yard and do spring planting, and provide general exterior maintenance. Volunteers worked to clear gutters and make minor repairs to the siding. While the contractor-savvy participants worked to replace the front door and windows, others dove right into weeding beds, raking leaves, and removing ivy and debris from the yard. Perennial plants were donated and the garden beds were mulched. A number of local businesses also assisted in the efforts by donating their services.  Militello Painting and Power Washing power washed the exterior of the home and the front roof.  Scott’s Tree Service took down a large fallen tree limb and will be removing the brush debris from the property. Wilson Landscaping mowed and edged the lawn, and Michael DeLaurentis Concrete will be doing some concrete repairs at the site.  The goals of this joint effort were all achieved, along with good fellowship between the two organizations and the homeowner, and the knowledge that a struggling family has felt the love and support of their community.
