Our Club and COVID-19

Hope you and your families are doing well.

As of 29 May our county is going to Yellow status on COVID 19.  Our Rotary Club is still not meeting on our regular days and times.  Instead, we are having Zoom meetings with contact info emailed to you and put on the club calendar on this site.  Board members are meeting with the Country Club to find a date and procedures we can use to return to regular meetings.

Although many of our activities are delayed or cancelled, we are still active in the community.  Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more information on how we’re engaging, and email rotarywboro@gmail.com if you find things in the community for which the club can help.

Creating change in our community and around the world.

The Rotary Club of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania is a diverse organization of local business and community leaders who are united for the common good.

Our members are committed to the Rotary motto, “Service Above Self.”

Toys - Show Time Part 3: By the noon on the 19th, 346 gifts for 173 children in 81 families had been distributed, sometimes using "intriguing and novel" loading procedures seldom employed by the Postal Service or UPS. At the end of the day, tired but mischievous elves Brian and Susan Lucas came inside to warm up and take a victory lap for a job well done. For more information on Rotary's annual "Toys for Children" activity, contact Tracy Holliday at The Institute.

Toys - Show Time Part 2: Speaking of outside, look at that temperature below the Hurley Auctions sign. That's Brian Lucas marshalling arriving parents into the parking lot, and Anne Shepard guiding an arrival to the curbside pickup area. In the second pic, Dr. Bob Zimmerman, Tracy Holliday and Dr. Joe Stewart had cold hands but warm hearts as they ferried gifts to awaiting family vehicles. ... See MoreSee Less

Toys - Show Time Part 1: Finally, the Rotary Toys for Children team is set to deliver all the toys purchased, sorted, wrapped and tagged earlier. Toys are laid out on the Hurley Auctions floor behind the gift pick-up crew of Susan Lucas, Linda Zimmerman and Denise Esser (who also brought her two grandsons Scott and Eric Knepper). Toys are arranged so as parents arrive the crew can quickly find Santa's gifts and bring them to the front door. In past years parents would come inside, but for obvious reasons delivery needed to take place out in the parking lot this year. ... See MoreSee Less

Toys - Wrapping and Sorting Part 2: Our intrepid crew makes excellent progress. After wrapping, individual gifts are placed on numbered pieces of paper on the warehouse floor. Each paper represents gifts for all the children in a family. Waynesboro Community and Human Services (WCHS), who has been in direct contact with Santa, helped sort out families and children in need in the late fall, laying the groundwork for elves purchases last week, and their wrapping and sorting this week. ...
