Four-Way Test Essay Contest Deadline - March 2
The Four-Way Test Essay contest in District 7390 was initiated in 2006-07 by the Rotary Club of Mechanicsburg-North in the 9th grade at Cumberland Valley High School. The winner of their 2007-08 contest presented her essay at the District Conference and was well received. The 2008-09 District Governor challenged other Clubs to have contests in their local schools and agreed that if multiple Clubs did have contests, he would have their winners vie for District honors and prizes. The Clubs responded and three prizes were awarded in 2009 and 2010 with the first place winners presenting their essays at the District Conference.
 
Approximately 20 Clubs in the District participate in the Essay contest, but why not every Club? Then every 9th grader in our District would know something about Rotary and our 4-Way Test. Think of the positive effect this would have on their lives, Interact Clubs, the public image of Rotary, and the future of Rotary. If your Club has not already indicated interest in the Essay contest for 2017-2018 please contact District Chair, Steve Grubb at s[email protected].
 
The deadline to submit your club's winning essay to the District is March 2, 2018. You can find more information about the essay contest by clicking here
2018 District Conference
If you were a super hero, what would your super powers be?  As Rotarians, we have MANY super powers!  We are The Eradicators, eradicating polio from the face of the planet.  We are the Fearless Super Readers, bringing literacy to youth everywhere.  We are H20 Masters, bringing water to the farthest reaches of the world.  We are Professor Peace, advocating for local, national, and global solutions.  The Rotary District 7390 Conference will celebrate many super heroes of our past, present, and future. 
 
Meet Super Rotarian, Evan Burrell, who is making a difference by leaps and bounds!  Meet local Rotarians whose efforts seem to go beyond the boundaries of mere mortal accomplishments. 
 
It's a jet.  It's a plane.  No, it's ROTARY!  Super powers will activate on Friday, April 27 at 10:00 a.m.!

District 7390 Day of Service
A DAY OF SERVICE is an opportunity for clubs all over District 7390 to come together and engage in that practice which is at the core of our common identity – that of service. We have set Saturday April 21 as our date for this year and we are proposing that each club identify a service project that they would like to undertake that day and then to carry out that project either within their own club or in cooperation with other clubs around them.
