Rotary District 7410 Governor Irene Carey recently attended a meeting of the Rotary Club of Jim Thorpe for her annual official visit.

While she was there, she welcomed and inducted new member, Bob Schaninger into the club.

During her presentation, Carey made mention of a number of her priorities for the year, including the Rotary Foundation.

In the next few weeks, the Jim Thorpe club expects to receive a grant from the foundation to help support an early childhood education program known as Right from the Start.

In order to activate the grant, the club needs to also contribute from funds raised by the members.

Two programs currently active for that purpose are the Ghost Walks in Old Mauch Chunk and the Bed and Breakfast Raffle.

Other ongoing programs to help the community include the Dictionary/Calculator Project for all third and fourth graders in the Jim Thorpe area, the Summer Youth Recreation Program, clothing for disadvantaged children during the holidays, and scholarships to both a summer leadership gathering for high school juniors and for graduating seniors to attend college.

Membership in the Rotary Club of Jim Thorpe is open to all who have a desire to help the community in some way.

Interested individuals can contact President Bob Stevenson for more information at (570) 325-2346.
