The Rotary eClub Engages in Service to Support the Safe Harbor Shelter
This October of 2017, the Rotary eClub is collecting items needed for the Safe Harbor Shelter, located in Easton, PA. Safe Harbor is in need of many items to help the hundreds of homeless men & woman who use their shelter each week. Items can be purchased or donated from your items around the house. The Safe Harbor Homeless shelter intends to empower homeless men and women by providing them one-on-one professional counseling, food, and transitional shelter.

Heroin abuse is a dangerous epidemic. Families, individuals, and businesses participating in the Hikes-Not-Heroin event are supporting the following messages:
Life is a hike, and with each step, we have a choice.
Heroin is dangerous. Heroin hurts people, families, and businesses. Don’t try heroin.
We are not ignoring this problem. We will walk with our families and community to raise funds for Heroin Prevention.
Our community supports wellness. Alternatives are available. No one is alone.
Unplug – de-stress naturally. Kids should be kids. Have real fun! Go hiking!
Opening ceremony at 10:30 a.m., followed by a self-guided hike through the looping trails of Horseshoe Bend Park (South Entrance). Visit sponsored Waypoints along the trails, picnic with your family, take a hike, and make a donation to support Prevention Resources, Inc. Dog Friendly!
How to Get Involved:
Hike With Us – Enjoy this self-guided hike with Waypoints of interest along the way: yoga, art, give-aways, and other experiences await you in the woods. Hiker Pre-Registration is Appreciated! Recommended donation is $20 per individual, $50 per family.
Red Ribbon Tributes – Contact us in advance and we will temporarily decorate a tree along the trail with a Red Ribbon in honor of friends and family whose lives are impacted by heroin. Each ribbon will be anonymous, however, those who have lost loved ones to heroin have the option of tying a written tribute to a red ribbon during the hike (please register in advance). Sponsored by Flemington Floral.
Waypoint Sponsors – Business and Student Organizations may sponsor a Waypoint of interest along the trail. Waypoints will be marked on a map and should be interactive, inspirational, or educational for our hikers. Emphasis should be on heroin abuse awareness and prevention, wellness, hiking, relevant give-aways, art, or entertainment. Each Waypoint must be arranged in advance with approval of the Horizon Rotary eClub.
Shanahan & Voigt, LLC is proud to support Love Has No Color’s (LHNC) Fill A Backpack Fundraiser. LHNC is a charitable organization run by volunteers dedicated to helping impoverished Native American children. LHNC has formed partnerships with the Assiniboine/Sioux tribes with the aim to combat the poverty and “hopelessness” affecting so many of the residents of the Fort Peck Reservation in Montana.
According to their website, LHNC does “not simply hand out gifts and money to the Reservation.” Instead, they “enhance and brighten the futures of each and every child … with hope, self-esteem building activities and many other tools so they understand there is life beyond the reservation” (http://www.savethereservation.org/about_us, 2015).
You can help the children of the Fort Peck reservation in their pursuit of an education by filling backpacks with school supplies. Some supplies that LHNC suggests are backpacks, calculators, colored pencils, crayons, erasers, folders, markers, pencils, pencil cases, pencil sharpeners, pens, rulers, glue sticks, hand sanitizers, highlighters, scissors, spiral notebook, and tape.
Shanahan & Voigt, LLC is helping Gardner Family Chiropractic collect school supplies by serving as an additional drop-off location. School supplies may be dropped off Monday through Friday between 9:00am and 5:00pm until July 28th, 2017 at:
We will be testing a new App called GroupAhead. This Rotary endorsed App appears to include many of the features that eClubs require, and advertises as being much more user friendly than our customized website. Please watch your email for updates so that you can download and connect to the App and share with us in trying GroupAhead. The App is currently being customized for our club.
Once set-up, the Board has advised that we will focus on community service. We are all craving those “Rotary Moments” of doing good in the world, and seeking fewer administrative distractions. We look forward to brining you news and announcements about community service opportunities throughout our district and beyond.
Thank you for your patience and commitment to Rotary as we share in charting the course for Rotary’s technology future.
