Food for the Needy This Week
Campbells chicken noodle soup can lotCanned Food, Cans, Supermarket, Food
 
Be sure to bring a canned good to this week's meeting for Rotarian Ralph Lewis' Food for the Needy drive!
We recently heard that 1 in 7 people in the USA is hungry every day. Here in the Lehigh Valley, Second Harvest has figured that it is 1 in 8 people. Better, but many people need our help!
Scary Halloween
President's Message
 
Hello Emmaus Rotary and welcome to November!!!
 
Time is flying this Rotary year.  A lot has happened to date, and there is much more to come. 
 
November is Rotary's Foundation Month and District 7430 is a strong supporter of District Grants.  This past Saturday, November 2nd our District offered Rotary Foundation Seminar and Grant Training at Montgomery County Community College.  I know Cindy Hornaman attended and I hope others did as well. 
 
I encourage anyone intrigued by the Rotary Foundation to talk to Cindy as she has been involved in our clubs grants since I have been a member.  The basis behind how it works is the funds we donate eventually come back to the District and our Club for local and international projects.  The leverage is amazing and our club has created very impressive projects that have improved many lives all over the world.  Ask long time members around our club about Gul Asnani's India project...it will blow your mind how impactful these grants can be.
 
Keep your eyes on www.rotary.org and learn more about Rotary Foundation Month.
 
See you Thursday
Hydrogen Cars...what will they think of next?
Mr. Nick Mittica, Commercial Manager, Hydrogen Energy Systems at Air Products and Chemicals took us on a roller coaster ride of information about the development and future of hydrogen automobiles.  He first got us to understand that hydrogen cars are a type of electric cars because hydrogen (extracted from the H2O molecule) is used to power the engine and subsystems that makeup the hydrogen car.  He also noted that a hydrogen car leaves no carbon footprint but currently the cost per mile is much higher than a comparably gas fueled vehicle.  There are more of this type of car in California where there are hydrogen filling stations and not nearly as many elsewhere.  For more of the many details about the vehicle, please watch the video of the 10.31.19 meeting.
Fellowship Thank You and More Coming!
 
Our next Fellowship event will be Saturday, November 30 for Small Business Saturday. We have reserved 10 tote bags with Emmaus Main Street Partners. These tote bags are filled with coupons, freebies, promotional items, etc. from our surrounding local businesses. We as a group will plan to pickup the bags Saturday morning, walk around to the local shops, and grab lunch together at an eatery downtown. Reach out to Meghan or Ashley if you're interested in participating. We will have up to 10 bags reserved, past those 10 bags, you'll have to register through the link (to come at a later time).
