The Kutztown Rotary Club Honored With Organization of the Year Award 

The Kutztown Rotary Club received the Kutztown Community Partnership Organization of the Year Award at KCP's February 2nd annual meeting. Our very active president-elect, Ellen Overcast, nominated the club for this honor. The award was received by Ellen and our club secretary and foundation president, Melissa Kirk. Also receiving an award that night was the KCP volunteer of the year, Jerry Schearer, KCP's Past President and Assistant Vice President and Dean of Student Services. In a Feb 13 Berks-Mont news article available on the Reading Eagle website, Jerry made the following comments about the Kutztown Rotary Club: “Rotary Club of Kutztown is such a great organization. The amount of fundraising they do for local projects and the volunteers they provide for KCP events is really impressive.  I’ve been glad to give back to them a little each year by volunteering at the Taste of Kutztown event Rotary holds.” Also quoted in the article were comments from our current president, Tom Kulp: “Kutztown Rotary Club is honored to be recognized as the Organization of the Year by Kutztown Community Partnership. The Kutztown Rotary Club focuses on local needs in Kutztown, Topton, and surrounding communities. We have partnered with KCP on many initiatives and look forward to continuing to support KCP and the community. We plan to continue our mission of supporting community efforts through our major fundraisers, the Taste of Kutztown in June, and Kutztown Ghost Tour in October.”
