  CLUB COMMUNITY PROJECTS

Paul Harris Monument  in Valley Forge Park: In 1977, Rotary International planted a mile long grove of trees in Valley Forge Park along the border of the Pennsylvania Turnpike in memory of the patriots who survived the bitter winter of 1777-78 and became an army which went on to found our nation. At the half-way point, a monument was dedicated commemorating the bicentennial and the memory of Paul Harris, founder of Rotary. For twenty-two years the grove and monument were lost and neglected. It was rediscovered by a member of the King of Prussia Club. With the help of Rotarians from several district 7450 clubs, the monument and grove were reclaimed rededicated in September 1998. Rotarians from King of Prussia and the district pledged to keep the Grove and Paul Harris monument from future neglect.

 

Community Day: The King of Prussia Rotary Club heightens awareness of its presence in the community by taking part in the annual Community Day sponsored by Upper Merion Township’s Park and Recreation.  This day allows us to promote Rotary activities and interact with the community.

 Swedesburg Volunteer Fire Co Fire Prevention Expo: The King of Prussia Rotary Club continues to show itspresence in the community by taking part in the annual Fire Prevention Expo sponsored by Swedesburg Volunteer Fire Company held the first week in October.  This day allows us to promote Rotary activities and interact with the community and we tailor our outreach with safety oriented coloring books and information.?

Through member compassion and caring, the motto “Service Above Self” becomes real with our club's service to the community.  We have a vision of the force that we are together. Our goal is to contribute to the civic betterment of our community by answering needs and improving the quality of life.

 

This Avenue of Service embraces a variety of activities that occupy Rotarians as they help neighbors in their own communities.  Some of the activities that comprise Community Service are describedabove.
