Our club was invited to participate in the Volunteer Fair at West Chester University (WCU), and of course, we accepted! WCU alums and fellow Rotarians, Austin Aimone and Corey Cahill, helped man our table at Sykes Union on the campus. They answered questions, explained Rotary, local and international mission, avenues of service, passed out Rotary tri-folds, provided/ shared info about the upcoming Chili Cook-off (CCO), and encouraged them to volunteer. They also gave away about a dozen free tee shirts from previous CCOs. The head of Greek Life (campus organization of sororities and fraternities) even circulated the Sign-up Genius for the CCO to enlist volunteers!
Through the years, we have had a number of WCU alums join us, taking leadership positions in our club (Past President Matt Holliday) and in the greater community. A number of WCU students help out regularly at the Community Warehouse Project, a charity we support, whose director is a member of our Rotary Club! We’ve had a longtime, ongoing relationship with WCU. Thanks to Jeff Cantwell for arranging our participation and this photo.
