Welcome to the Rotary Club of West Shore

indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead

Our club members are dedicated people who share a passion for community service and friendship.

What's Happening at the Rotary Club of the West Shore
Did you know?
  • Polio mainly affects children under age 5.
  • There is no cure for polio, but it is preventable with a vaccine.
  • Only two countries remain endemic.
  • Through Rotary International's efforts, the number of cases has dropped by 99.9% since 1988.
  • There is evidence of polio trying to make a comeback.
Join with the Rotary Clubs of West Shore, Mechanicsburg-North, Yellow Breeches, and District 7390 Passport to raise money to continue the fight. Bring the Pints for Polio flyer with you to Snappers Bar and Grill in Mechanicsburg on October 19, and Snappers will donate 10% of your bill towards Rotary's continued efforts to eradicate this disease.
 
Hope to see you there!
 
The 2022 Flags for Heroes Dedication Ceremony was held on Monday, September 12, 2022. As in previous years, we began with the Presentation of Colors which was done by the Redland High School JROTC. Once again, Mr. Matthew A. Robinson amazed us with his voice as he sang the National Anthem. The ceremony concluded with a very emotional playing of Taps by Dr. Bill Stowman, Chair of the Music Department at Messiah University. As event emcee, Dennis Owens from ABC27, reminded us of the sacrifices made by our heroes, and speaker Dave Apgar from the Camp Hill Fire Department provided examples of heroes all around us. We extend our heartfelt thanks to the event and flag sponsors, and all those who helped make the ceremony so meaningful.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, health care workers have dedicated their time, energy, and skills to ensure our safety. As they provided vaccinations, administered tests, tracked outbreaks, and cared for patients, they sometimes put their health at risk to do so.
 
With the pandemic far from over, Rotary asked its clubs to show our appreciation for them during the week of August 21-27.
 
Given the large number of nursing homes that are close to the RCWS meeting place, we chose to show our appreciation by dropping off a sweet treat and handwritten notes of gratitude.
 
Thank you, health care workers, for all that you do!
August 2, 2022 - Club members showed up in force to help celebrate National Night Out in Camp Hill! Whether it was a bottle of cold water to quench thirst, a lollipop for a sweet treat, or getting a temporary tattoo (or two!) to show their patriotism, community members were able to learn a little more about Rotary and see that we care about the community in which we live, work, and serve.
 
We got an extra treat when RYLA participant Sarah G. from Camp Hill High School stopped by to say hello! In her words, "RYLA was the best part of my whole summer!" 
 
We are grateful for the many ways in which we can give back!
