Welcome to the Rotary Club of West Shore

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
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.
If you are an established professional who wants to make positive changes in the world and in your
community - particularly Camp Hill, Lemoyne, and New Cumberland - come join us!
What's Happening at the Rotary Club of the West Shore
Members of the Rotary Club of West Shore grabbed some gloves, donned brightly colored vests, a box of trash bags and set out to clean up the community. We gathered trash in the area near the transit center as well as the bottleneck.
We are happy to be able to lend a helping hand in the local community!
Pictured are club members George Conolly, Erin Sunday, Mark Knodel, Tim Arthun, Bim Arthun, and club friends Cleevens, Ley & Roovensky Almeus, Kedner Joseph, and Wisguer Sauver.
It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of longtime club member Graeme Goodsir.
Graeme was a consummate gentleman, a well-respected and renown expert in his field, and a dedicated Rotarian. His passion for and involvement in the dictionary project touched many lives over the years. Like other club members we've lost, the words "service above self" meant a great deal to Graeme.
You will be missed, friend.
We are so excited by this new project for our club!
As a result of COVID, the Camp Hill Parks and Recreation Department decided to try a new idea for collecting toys for the USMC Toys for Tots campaign. Instead of dropping off a toy in person at various locations around town, the director decided to do a lights display in Siebert Park and offer a drive-through option. Now in year three, the event is a huge success.
RCWS club members gathered at Siebert Park on November 26-27 to set up a display for participants to enjoy. A huge THANK YOU to Highland Gardens in Camp Hill for donating a lighted tree and 2-pc reindeer set for us to use during the three-day event. The other items were donated by club members as a way of keeping costs down.
Our original goal was to include a lighted Rotary wheel, but we elected to start "small" and plan differently for 2023.
We are looking forward to seeing this project grow in the future and doing our part to support both a local and national endeavor!
With help from grant monies from the Rotary Foundation, District 7390, the RCWS was able to purchase supplies, assemble, and deliver 50 care kits for victims of domestic violence in Cumberland and Perry Counties. The club applied for the grant with a specific focus on Maternal and Child Health.
The care kits include attractive, high quality duffel bags filled with personal hygiene and cleaning items. A special thanks to the staff at Domestic Violence Services of Cumberland and Perry Counties for providing us with a detailed list of the most-needed items.
Club members assembled the kits on Monday, November 21, and delivered them to DVSCP on Friday, December 3. Due to the confidential and sensitive nature of DVSCP's work, their staff will distribute the care kits as needed.
We are grateful to The Rotary Foundation, District 7390, for making this vision a reality.
Additional pictures of kit assembly night are available on the RCWS Facebook page
The RCWS is proud to be part of the Salvation Army Harrisburg Capital City Region's "Be the Light" campaign.
As part of our support, our club is one of 30+ organizations who took time to decorate a tree outside of the Salvation Army's headquarters on 29th Street in Harrisburg. A larger tree lighting ceremony was held on November 17, 2022.

The Salvation Army Harrisburg provides diverse programs, including basic needs assistance, self-sufficiency mentoring, workforce development, choice shopping food pantry, Family Table nutrition education, youth programs, and emergency disaster services. The programs focus on meeting needs of body, mind and spirit without discrimination. The programs also dovetail nicely with many of Rotary International's areas of interest including Maternal and Child Health, Basic Education and Literacy, Economic and Community Development, and Disease Prevention and Treatment.
Note: Our club realizes that this is an old Rotary logo, but it was handmade in Haiti from a recycled oil drum, and we think that’s pretty special!
