On Saturday, July 18th, State College Rotarians, District 7360 Rotarians and guests attended the State College Spikes baseball game against the Batavia Muckdogs to raise funds for Polio Eradication. Approximately, 75 individuals attended the game and fans purchased raffle tickets and END POLIO NOW wristbands from club members. District Governor David Ford and District Secretary Mary Johnston threw out first pitches to the cheers from the fans. PDG Kelly Wike was interviewed about Rotary's efforts to eradicate Polio on the local radio station. With ticket sales, raffle ticket sales and donations, State College Rotary Club raised $700 that will be sent to the Rotary Foundation/Polio Plus Fund.

Thank you to all who helped us out and the State College Spikes staff and crew for working to make this a successful event.

Club President's Message

Club President
Debbie Fudrow
Welcome to the State College Rotary Club's website. The 2015-16 Rotary theme is “Be a Gift to the World” and this club will be giving to many organizations – both financially and through service.

Our club is involved in many community, as well as international projects and activities that showcase our philosophy of 'service above self'. One of these activities is the Annual Sandwich Sale which raises funds for a number of local organizations. Another project is our work with CVIM on the Battle of the Minds dinner, auction, and trivia game that raises thousands of dollars for the clinic that serves the uninsured in Centre County.

We help our youth by distributing dictionaries to all third graders in the State College and Penns Valley School Districts. Our Club sponsors and advisors an Interact Club at State College High School. In 2014 and 2015, the State College Interact Club received a Rotary Presidential Citation for their work with numerous service projects.

Our club supports students attending the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy and participates in the District’s Four-Way Test Speech Contest. International Youth Exchange is important to our club, as this year we are sponsoring 2 outbound students (one to Peru and one to Japan) and 1 inbound student from Germany.

Weekly, we have interesting speakers, programs or outings. If you are interested in finding out more information about this exciting and worthwhile organization, please join us at our meetings at the Nittany Lion Inn.
