The Springfield Township Rotary Club completed their $20,000 + renovation and addition to the Flourtown Erdenheim War Memorial last fall. Continuing to maintain the site, Philip Dominic and others from Laurel Hill Gardens of Chestnut Hill, volunteered their time to weed, mulch and plant annuals at the memorial to spruce it up for the Labor Day weekend. A local resident and war veteran from Springfield Township stopped by during the clean up to express his thanks to the Rotary Club and to Laurel Hill Gardens for remembering all Veterans Service.
Springfield Rotary Club was pleased to welcome Barbara Kroberger, Director for the Nyaka School, who shared with the Club her recent travels to Uganda to an AIDS Orphanage. The Springfield Rotary Club donated enough funds to build a home, latrine, and kitchen hut for a grandmother. In Africa, an entire generation has been wiped out due to AIDS, leaving grandmothers to care for a generation of children. Ms. Kroberger and others were able to raise $30,000 to build 10 new homes for the grandmother. The Nyaka School also supports primary schools and medical clinics for the community’s they service.

Food, Games, Rides and other fun is planned each night with fireworks set to go off on Saturday, June 29 once it gets dark, come early enjoy the carnival and grab a great seat for the fireworks.
Sorry Everyone, the weather on Thrusday, required us to cancel the carnival for Thursday Night 6/27 – Any tickets purchased are good Friday and Saturday Night. We have rescheduled One Price Wristband night to tomorrow $20 to ride all night on a Friday. That’s a great deal. Please pass this post on to all if your friends. Also don’t forget the fireworks on Saturday night, we’ll be playing it by ear on the weather, but please keep an eye on the sky! If there is lightning in the area, obviously we cannot hold a carnival or fireworks, but we’re hoping for clear skies. Plenty of free parking at the high school and middle school. See you there and THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING ROTARY!

“Last Saturday’s drop-off was a huge success. Thank you for the Rotary Club’s support again this year. The children who received the equipment were very appreciative of the donation. I’ve attached a picture of Bill with the kids from the Strawberry Mansion Athletic Association. Derrick Ford is the league President and has promised me that he will send some pictures of the children playing with the equipment.”
