September 10, 2021 - the day before the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the United States - the Rotary Club of the West Shore held its Flags for Heroes Dedication Ceremony. Friends, family, sponsors, and heroes gathered to remember the sacrifices made by so many in our community and beyond.
 
We are grateful to our corporate sponsors and to each individual flag sponsor. Your decision to recognize a special someone has an extensive reach as proceeds from the event stay in the local community to help those in need. 
 
Plans are already underway for the 2022 Flags for Heroes event. You won't want to miss it!
 
Members of the Rotary Club of the West Shore were on hand to provide refreshments to walkers at the 2021 Vickie's Angel Walk which was held on Saturday, October 9, 2021. 
 
Walkers were very appreciative to find free cold water along the route. Their appreciation turned to excitement when they also saw free candy! 
 
While there were many "thank you" comments from the walkers, we especially appreciated hearing, "I knew you'd be here. Thank you for doing this for so many years."
 
We are happy to support such a great event and program that helps those in need.
The RCWS is grateful to the sponsors who have already signed on for the 2021 Flags for Heroes event. The flags will be on display from September 4-12, 2021, along the Camp Hill Bypass. 
 
It's not too late for you to be a sponsor too! Sponsorships range from the $100 individual level to the $2,000 gold level.
 
Join us for this unique and emotional display of gratitude that supports the local community. All proceeds from this fundraiser remain in the local area.

The RCWS is happy to support our local community! Club President Rod Hite (L) and former Club President Kirk Brechbiel (R) are pictured below donating $1,000 from our Flags for Heroes fundraiser to Anissa Basom of the Earl Besch Food Pantry in Camp Hill.
 
The Earl Besch Project supports a host of needs (food, clothing, services) for Camp Hill families who are struggling to make ends meet so that our students can have the tools they need to become our leaders of tomorrow.

Once again, our hearts are heavy as we announce the loss of long time club member, Chuck Cenkner.
 
Chuck was often called "Mr. Rotary" since his passion for polio eradication, helping others, and living life by the Four-Way Test were evident in everything he did. He served on numerous Rotary committees at the club and district level, was editor of the weekly newsletter The Spokesman, and served as a District Governor. His volunteer involvement went well beyond that of Rotary International.
 
We miss you, Chuck, and hope you are enjoying the reunion with your beloved Marilyn.
 
Note: A service for Chuck is tentatively scheduled for May 2021.
