Sunday Apr 25, 2021
Last week we had the pleasure of having Master Business Coach Michelle Landis-principal of Pinnacle 7 consulting join our meeting and talk about "The Art of Leadership". Many of you have heard Michelle present on different topics and it was a fast paced, informative talk on leadership and the differences between a manger vs. leader. Good communication is imperative to success. Following her advice and after a week of very high club email traffic-let me summarize what we are doing and I invite you to join the activities because all of us at Bethlehem Rotary are leaders in the community.
    • Monday April 26 at 2:30pm via a sent last Tuesday is our Liberty High School Charter Celebration event.
    • Be sure to join this historic event with the Charter presentation and speakers from District 7430, BASD, and the Interact officers.
    • Let's show our future leaders(and Rotarians) we support them.   Use this ZOOM LINK to join the celebration at 2:30 PM
    • April 30-May 2 is the Tri-District Conference 2021. Click HERE to register.
    • The virtual event will feature speakers, fun & games, socializing time, Bingo fundraiser and more including Camp Neidig.
    • The in-person event is Saturday May 1 from 1-5pm "Day of Service"  project at our Centennial Park on Sand Island. Tasks planned include weeding, mulch, trim, paint and establishing a new butterfly garden. With the Camp Neidig students helping we also hope to clean the parking area around the Ice House. Email me at that you are participating so we have enough "tools" for everyone.
  • RAGAS (Rotary Action Group Against Slavery)
    • Monday May 3 at 7pm our RAGAS (Rotarians Against human Slavery) Committee begins regularly scheduled meetings on the 1st Monday of the month.
    • ALL members are invited to attend AS WELL AS non-Rotarians who are interested in helping fight this growing problem. There are many opportunities and ways each one of us can help with our unique talents.
    • There are many events planned later in the year, please contact Lori Knerr or Patrick Morgan for more information (or if you know of a person outside the club interested in helping).
We celebrated Earth Day on April 22nd, and following a tradition started several years ago, we are planting 105 (for each Bethlehem Rotarian) trees this year in Appalachia in support of PDG Herb Klotz and his goal to complete the last 110 mile leg of the 2,190 mile long Appalachian Trail this year. Good luck to Herb and many thanks to Lisa for initiating this worthy endeavor.  Special thanks to Lisa Jordan who gave us a great presentation about this tradition.
Did you hear: Through April 21 there have been ONLY 2 reported wild poliovirus type 1 cases reported worldwide. This is fantastic news because April 24-30 is World Immunization Week 2021 as Rotary seeks to eradicate polio.
Fellow Rotarian Chris Nelson would like to alert us to an educational, as well as civic responsibility event. Her faith-based organization POWER LV Interfaith Clergy has joined with two other interfaith groups to sponsor four Lehigh Valley Candidate Forums. This presents a unique opportunity to hear what candidates have to say about issues that may be of interest to service organizations like Rotary.  If you're interested in participating, just click the links below:
This week we welcome Chaplain Heidi Tierny, Network Director of Pastoral Care at St. Luke's University Health Network, with a program about what impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on religion. Over the past year we have heard from various business and community organizations how the pandemic altered their operations, now we will hear from a leader in the religious community how they have handled this and what ramifications could result from the past year of being distanced.
Yours in Rotary service,
President Pete Mickolay
