At the Rotary Foundation dinner on Thursday, November 8, several Clubs were recognized for their generous giving to the Rotary Foundation during the 2017-18 Rotary year. 
Global Grant Streamers
Just like the military services launch campaigns on the battlefield, Rotary International has launched campaigns for which global grants are made available and applied in six areas of focus. The military services are awarded varying color streamers for successful campaigns. District 7390 is proud to award streamers to Rotary clubs which successfully apply their time, talent, and resources in support of the areas of focus. Each focus area has an identifiable colored streamer on which the country and year of execution is embroidered. The Rotary Clubs of Hanover (Philippines 2018), Harrisburg-Keystone (Ecuador 2018), Lancaster (Malawi 2018) and York-East (Malawi 2018) each received a Green streamer for Disease Prevention and Treatment.

2017-18 Presidential Citations
2017-18 RI President Ian Riseley said that Rotary is defined not by who we are, but by what we do. He said we answer the question “What is Rotary?” with our actions, by making a difference through our service. However each of us chooses to serve, we do it because we know our service makes a difference in the lives of others. Whether we are building a new playground or a new school, improving medical care or sanitation, training conflict mediators or midwives, we know that the work we do will change people’s lives – in ways large and small – for the better. Whatever motivation each of us had for joining Rotary, it is the satisfaction we find in Rotary that causes us to remain, the satisfaction of knowing that week by week, year by year, we are part of Rotary: Making a Difference. In 2017-18, the Rotary Clubs of Elizabethtown, Hanover, Harrisburg-Keystone, Mechanicsburg, Mechanicsburg-North and Shippensburg made a strong and positive difference in their communities. They achieved goals related to Rotary’s three strategic priorities: to support and strengthen clubs, focus and increase humanitarian service and enhance Rotary’s public image and awareness.
