It’s time for our 7th Annual Community Carnival! From June 25-29 each night starting at 6PM the carnival will take place in the parking lot of Springfield Township High School. 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!

The Springfield Rotary Club welcomed members of the Springfield Township Police Department to share information on their new program, COPS. The new program replaces the DARE program in the Springfield Township School District. The new program gives better flexibility for the police officer instructors to gear their programs towards current concerns affecting the children, for example cyber bullying, Facebook, texting, and peer pressure. The Springfield Rotary Club presented a check for $2,000 to help fund the new program. Pictured Left to Right, Rotary President Linda Silva, Chief Hummel and Lt. Pitkow.
