Stroudsburg, PA – The Rotary Club of the Stroudsburgs donated $2,000 to the Stroudsburg Little League, which will use the money to buy netting to protect spectators from foul balls at the refurbished field and headquarters at Creekview Park in Stroud Township, on Appenzeller Avenue. Stroudsburg is host the state tournaments there this month for the first time ever.
The Rotary Club of the Stroudsburgs, created in 1922, in the past five years raised and distributed more than $145,000 in grants and scholarships to 30 different organizations in the Poconos. During the same period the club sent more than $100,000 for Rotary International projects overseas, for projects ranging from the eradication of polio worldwide to, this year’s goal, construction of a school in Haiti. The club annually awards four college scholarships to Monroe County students at East Stroudsburg University, awards four other scholarships to high school seniors from Monroe County, and conducts an essay contest, with $875 in awards, annually. The amount distributed to Monroe County students annually is $5,875.
The goal this year and every year is to help more organizations and more individuals with more money, whenever it will make a positive change.
The club meets Thursdays at 11:55 a.m. at the Sycamore Grille in Delaware Water Gap and is eagerly recruiting anyone who wishes to embrace the community and share the good feeling that results when good times bring good things to good people.
