John Hayden from Antonelli Institute was the speaker recently at a Rotary Club Meeting where he explained the Institute is celebrating 75 years of history teaching students the visual arts. Below is Club President George Schaefer and John Hayden. The Rotarians also presented a check for $1000.00 to Face to Face, a local facility and organization that offers a Dining Room, a nurse managed Health Center, a Legal Center, a Social Services Center and Children’s Summer Camps and After School programs. We also have a Washeteria where people can take a hot shower and receive a new set of clothes. Face to Face serves 2,500 annually and has been a stable presence in Germantown for over 20 years. They also recognized Honorary Rotarian Joe Bonus for always being willing to help in Rotary Projects.
The club recognized Bob Ryan for donating the chicken for the MLK Day lunch at Face to Face. Because of the efforts of Mike Creeden from Sandy Run Country Club, most of the food for the luncheon was donated. This freed up the money that the club allocated for the luncheon to be able to present a $1,000 check to Face to Face. Additionally, the club was able to donated 2,000 toiletry items for the washeteria.
Because of his monumental work on the Springfield Rotary projects over the past years, the Rotary Club presented an Honorary Membership to Joe Bonus.
Program: John Hayden, Director of the Antonelli School of Photography located in Springfield Township presented information about the school, its programs and most of all, its successful alumni.
