At its January 28 lunch meeting Jenkintown Rotary President John DiBenedetto made two major presentations:
DeBenedetto (left) presented a check for $1,000 to Lou Riggs (right) Rotary’s champion for the Loaves and Fishes Food Cupboard located in the Jenkintown Methodist Church. The church is in need of a new heating system and the $1,000 is a partial match by the Gundaker Foundation of funds previously committed to this project by Jenkintown Rotary. The Club has also decided to celebrate the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry at its annual Pancake Breakfast which will be held on April 22 at Grace Presbyterian Church in Jenkintown.
DeBenedetto (left) presented a trophy and diamond pin to Bob White (right) for his significant contributions to the national Rotary Foundation. White has been an active Jenkintown Rotary member for 28 years and a major contributor to the Foundation for all those years. The Foundation supports local, national and international projects and programs that provide scholarships, disaster relief, wells in water deprived areas, etc. One of its most significant projects involves the eradication of polio. Since it was started 30 years ago this project has helped eradicate over 99% of the cases of polio in the world. The Jenkintown Rotary Club meets for lunch on Tuesdays at 12:15 p.m. in the fellowship hall at Grace Presbyterian Church, 444 Old York Rd. in Jenkintown.
