The farmers were treated to a great dinner and an informative talk about the status of Nuclear Energy in Pennsylvania. Our guest speakers were Nuclear Advocate David Feidt and Susquehanna Plant Manager Derrick Jones. Everyone enjoyed the meal and the information provided by the speakers.

2018 Rabies Clinic Project

Berwick Rotary sponsored another successful Rabies Clinic at the North Berwick Animal Hospital.  76 animals received rabies vaccine in just under 2 hours on a beautiful Saturday morning.  Rotarian Tom Kowalchick and his staff at the hospital administered the vaccines as club members registered clients, helped process the animals  and ensured the paperwork was in order.  Many thanks to Dr. Kowalchick for his generous donation of time and resources to make this a successful fund raiser for our international project fund.

Also, many thanks to Tom and Lisa Popko from The Medicine Shoppe and First Keystone Community Bank for their support and sponsorship!!

Berwick Rotary helps aquire service dog

At the July 12th meeting,  our guest speaker was Abigail Morrison. She brought along her service dog “Jiffy” to our meeting. Berwick Rotary helped Abby with a scholarship that helped pay for the training of Jiffy to be her service dog. Rotary members were shown a demonstration of how Jiffy helps Abby perform a number of day to day tasks. Jiffy has opened up many opportunities to Abby since she is able to do much more with her canine help.   A simple task like retrieving a dropped cell phone can actually turn into a life saving event for someone who is wheel chair bound.  Thank you Abby and Jiffy for a great presentation!
