Tastes & Tunes 2019 Results
Bethlehem's Recreation Director receives $10,000 check from Club President Thea Lind.
 
On December 4, 2019, The Rotary Club of Bethlehem celebrated the culmination of its 2019 Tastes & Tunes event, held on October 6, 2019 at the City of Bethlehem's historic Charles A. Brown Ice House.  This annual event divides funds raised between a designated charitable recipient AND the Bethlehem Rotary Foundation, that in turn provides grants local charitable organizations.  This year's designated recipient was the Ice house itself. The funds will help repair/replace the leaking roof, helping to preserve an important local resource used year-round by Bethlehem's non-profit community.

Rotary in Motion
Rotarians respond to Australian brushfires 
 
More than 100 separate brushfires in Australia have damaged hundreds of homes and forced mass evacuations. Rotary clubs are taking action to provide immediate relief to those affected by the fires. Rotary has a Disaster Response Fund which following a natural disaster like the fires in Australia ensures we can deliver supplies, provide health care, and support rebuilding efforts. By making a donation today, you can help Rotarians respond swiftly and effectively, bringing hope to those whose lives have been affected by disaster.
 
What it's like to ...
 
In the January issue of The Rotarian, ordinary Rotarians tell the story of how they found themselves in extraordinary circumstances. In this fifth annual appearance of What It’s Like, you’ll read about Rotarians who conquered the seven summits, evaded capture in World War II, survived a hurricane, scrubbed in on the world’s first heart transplant, and more.
