Hello Emmaus Rotary!
We have a lot going on so please stay tuned in to the Weekly Trumpet Newsletter where you will find all the information needed to get involved.   This month is packed full of great activities and community support.
World Polio Day is Thursday October 24, 2019.  Our Rotary District 7430's way of raising funds to Fight for the End of Polio hosts a Purple Pinkie Race.   This year the 9th Annual Race to ZERO Purple Pinkie 5K Run & 1 + Mile Fun Walk/Run will be held this Saturday, October 12th, 2019 at Lehigh Carbon Community College in Schnecksville, PA!  Join in the fun and do not miss out on this incredible endeavor to End Polio Worldwide!
Saturday October 19, 2019 is Emmaus Rotary Make a Difference Day(MADD).  Contact Nicole Steirer and Karen Hobson, Community Service Chairman to learn how you can get involved.  There are activities planned for the entire day. 
On that note, all Rotarians are welcome to stop into my office at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Valley Partners 232 Main Street Emmaus for our Annual Emmaus Halloween Parade Party that starts at 7:00 PM.  Last year we had a swarm of yellow vested volunteers stop in for some food and drink after walking along side the Parade. 
Also this Saturday October 12, 2019 is The Miracle League Games.  This event is part of MAD Day and Bob Halsey needs volunteers to help out for 3 different games.  If you have never been to The Miracle League, it is eye opening, humbling and a great way help those Miracle League Baseball Players hit home runs.  I promise it will change your prospective on how you can change lives.  Thanks to Bob for dedicating so much of his time to the incredible organization.
Have fun everyone!  Looking forward to seeing you this Thursday!!!!
