The Kutztown Rotary Charitable Foundation and Rotary Club of Kutztown held a Foundation Celebration on November 9, 2022, celebrating more than $20,000 donated by the Club and Foundation to area non-profit organizations.
Representatives from the non-profit groups were invited to a dinner at the Kutztown Tavern, where the club holds its weekly meetings. The evening included a program explaining Rotary Club services and fundraising activities of the Club and Foundation. Invited participants then addressed club members on behalf of their organization to tell a little about the organization and how they intend to use the donation they received.
The major fundraiser of the Kutztown Rotary Club to support community donations is the Taste of Kutztown event held in June. A second smaller new Fall fundraising event for the club is the Ghost Tour started in 2022.
Pictured here accepting awards for 2022 are representatives from American Red Cross, PA Rivers Chapter; Brandywine Library; Burn Prevention Network; Friend, Inc Community Services; Grey Muzzle Manor; iHART Harvest; Kutztown Area School District Odyssey of the Mind; Kutztown Community Choir; Kutztown Fire and Rescue; Kutztown Library; Kutztown Strong; Lyons Volunteer Fire Company; Reading Flotilla; Rodale Institute; Topton Area Senior Citizens; and Topton Fire Co #1. Recipients unable to attend the event were Allentown Rescue Mission; Brandywine Heights Education Foundation; Brandywine Heights Parent-Teacher Organization; Kutztown Community Partnership; and Topton Mini Museum.
The Kutztown Rotary Club held the second annual Kutztown Ghost Tour on October 21st and 22nd with proceeds benefitting the Kutztown Historical Society. This year, the tour added mini stops between the 4 main stops of the Kutztown Historical Society, Old Main, Hope Cemetery, and the FOE. Guests were entertained with ghost stories and Kutztown history told by local historians, Rotary members, and Kutztown resident volunteers. In addition, participants could stop by a booth set up by paranormal group K.A.S.P.E.R. to learn about real-life ghost hunting or have a tarot card reading by volunteers Bonnie DeLong and Cecilia Taylor.
We would especially like to acknowledge all the hard work put in by the committee members and local volunteers and would also like to thank the community for making this event so successful. Please mark your calendars for next years’ event on October 20 and 21, 2023.
We hope you enjoy the picture collages below of guests, Rotary members, and volunteers. We again want to thank the collaborators, including the KU Paranormal Society and the Kutztown Historical Society, and all of the volunteers that donated time for this event. We also would like to give a special shout out to the Kutztown Tavern for letting us use the Club Room as a home base for the Ghost Tour.
Kutztown Rotary Club members joined other District 7430 Rotarians on October 15 to support Rotary's efforts to end polio. Multiple activities for the event held at the Berks Nature Center included active choices to walk, bike, and run; hands-on service projects in the Nature center; and a dog parade with fun category prizes. The morning wrapped up with a social lunch for all participants. It was a great group event for a great cause. Learn more about Rotary's campaign to end polio here.
