President's Message
Greetings Emmaus Rotary Club,
I hope everyone had a VERY MERRY HOLIDAY so far and are ready to ring in 2020 with a punch!
Can you believe we are half way through this Rotary Year?  Where the heck does time go?  The older I get the more I understand sayings like, "Time Flies!" Life is Short!" "Where did the time go?" etc, etc.  I am so appreciative for everyone's support to our club during the first half of my Presidential year.  Proud, thankful and honored are on the top of that list as well.  
Our club continues to grow THANKS TO YOU!  Our club continues to make a positive and influential impact in and on our community and beyond THANKS TO YOU!  Our club is continually being used as an example for other Rotary Clubs THANKS TO YOU!
Moving into the first half of 2020, and the second half of this Rotary Year, all I ask is for you to continue doing what you are doing.  Our committees are meeting more regularly and getting more participation.  Our Board of Directors is focusing on delivering transparency and other items such as organizational improvements, education and review of our club's By-Laws and Constitution, overall club's financial health and so much more.
So keep staying involved and keep inviting more guests.  A lot of our member's have taken my challenge to bring one guest this Rotary year.  Thank You to those who have brought a guest already, and Thank You to those members working to get their first guest by June 30, 2020.   Everyone can use a little Rotary in their life.  Practice the Four Way Test and share it with others.
I wish everyone a Happy New Year and look forward to seeing everyone on January 9, 2020 when we resume our regular meeting schedule.
All the best,
Steve Gould
2019-2020 ERC President
Happy New Year to All!
International Women's Day Celebration Awards
As a follow up to the announcement I made at our club meeting last week regarding our Emmaus Club International Women's Day Celebration Awards, I would like to clarify that our club gives two Awards:  1) The Rotarian Award to a woman Rotarian from a Rotary Club in Areas 1 and 2 (the Lehigh Valley), and 2) the Community Award to a woman from the Lehigh Valley.
1. Rotarian Award - Only the Club President can nominate a Rotarian from their club; however, Rotarians from that club can make recommendations to the President.  A letter was mailed to all the Areas 1 and 2 club Presidents to submit nominations.
2. Community Award - Only us, Rotarians from the Emmaus Club, can nominate a woman from the community for this Award.  You should have received the nomination information either at the November 21 or December 5 meetings if you were present and picked it up as they were circulated around the tables, or by US Mail if you were not there or did not pick it up. 
Recognizing that it may take time to gather the criteria information, fellow Rotarian Valerie Deneen has created a Website where you can enter the requested information as you gather it, save it, and generate a one-page summary. We still ask you to review the  summary before submitting your nomination. Deadline for nominations is January 20.
If you have any questions about this Award, please do not hesitate to e-mail me or call me at my cell phone 610-392-5134.
Our Committee looks forward to receiving your nominations for the Community Award. Thank you for your support.
Yours in Rotary Service.

Weekly Door Prize Donations Needed! Be our next meeting's prize sponsor! 
It seems like we all like the idea of winning a festive prize at our meetings (in person or online).  We have had some very generous and fun donations over the past few months since incorporating this new aspect to our meetings. Many thanks to all who have donated a prize!  It is a nice way to give back to each other while doing some low-key networking for your business. 
In the wake of the Carona Virus now more than ever it's important to show the local businesses in our community we care and support them.  They have shown us support with raffle donations and sponsorships throughout the years. Consider purchasing a $20.00 gift card from one of the many small businesses in the East Penn Area.  As we know every little bit helps. It's also a great way to start a conversation about Rotary and invite business owners and managers to a club meeting. Please contact Meghan Reed for more information about our weekly door prizes and how you can be help! 
Upcoming Committee Meetings: Consider holding a virtual meeting to stay in touch and on task with your committee! 
(Does your committee have an upcoming meeting? Let Meghan know and we will list it here)
Rotary and Beyond:
If you are participating in a fundraiser outside of Rotary and would like help spreading the word to our club members please contact Meghan Reed. It may be eligible to run in our new section in the Trumpet called "Rotary and Beyond".  It will cost $2.00 (Happy Dollars) each time you'd like to run the information in the Trumpet.  To have the information posted in the Trumpet you must be an active committee member or board member of the non-profit organization facilitating the activity outside of Rotary participation. The $2.00 entry may be given to Meghan at a club meeting.  Contact Meghan with any questions.
