Rotary in Motion
Fellow Rotarian, Bob Cohen, died unexpectedly and far too soon, on December 6, 2016.  A Renaissance man, Bob artfully continually reinvented himself, with ART at the center of each reinvention.  Bob, the singer, thespian, and author, adored libraries and gave special attention to the Bethlehem Area Public Library where he served as a board member, donor, and friend.  The library, in turn, dedicated the Bob Cohen Room, a concert venue and multi-use main floor space that will host lectures and meetings and plays and art galleries. 
 
The library has just published "Home at my Typewriter," a book of selected poems that Bob wrote over many years.  Bob's wife Amy Miller Cohen, invites us to a book launch.  Details follow, but space is limited.  Please RSVP directly to Amy by phone at 610-867-5501.

World Polio Day lauds partnerships, success
 
After 30 years of bold action, historic achievements, and sometimes discouraging setbacks, Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) have nearly brought polio to an end. This groundbreaking public-private partnership and its innovative strategies were celebrated Wednesday during Rotary’s 6th annual World Polio Day event, held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. Watch the livestream.
 
 
The Eastern PA Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals will bestow its Lifetime Achievement Award upon Hank Barnette, a member of the Rotary Club of Bethlehem, and his wife Joanne at the chapter’s 2018 National Philanthropy Day Awards Breakfast on Nov. 15.
 
Presented by chapter’s Board of Directors, the Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes the extraordinary lifetime achievement of individual philanthropists whose impact upon the greater Lehigh Valley community has been profound, inspiring, and sustained.
 
Hank and Joanne Barnette have been philanthropic and volunteer leaders for decades in the Lehigh Valley, West Virginia, Connecticut, and elsewhere.  

Rotary is a volunteer organization with 33,000 clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas.  It initiates humanitarian projects that address challenges affecting the world today, such as hunger, poverty, and illiteracy.  Rotary club members unite a broad cross-section of business and professional leaders around the world around a common mission:  Service Above Self. These 1.2 million men and women donate their expertise, time, and funds to support local and international project, helping people in need and promoting understanding among cultures.  

Rotary’s flagship program is its effort to protect children against polio. It aims to eradicate the disease from the world.
