Welcome to Rotary District 7430

Herb Klotz, District Governor 2019-20 

Our District's 45 Rotary Clubs are located over the five Counties of Montgomery, Bucks, Berks, Lehigh and Northampton in Southeastern Pennsylvania.  I invite you to contact the club nearest you to find out the many benefits of being a Rotarian.  Learn about the fellowship we share while following our motto "Service Above Self." And find out about the great things we do both in our local Community and around the World to help people and promote peace. Our District's clubs have over 1,790 members and are part of Rotary International, the World’s Oldest and Largest Humanitarian Service Organization. 


Please browse our site and feel free to use the "Contact Us" feature; we would love to hear from you.

We have over 40 new Rotarians that are joining our district in two new clubs: Montgo-New Britain and Lehigh Valley Passport Rotary Clubs!  Because of COVID-19 restrictions, we are planning two virtual Charter Ceremonies: June 15 at 5:30 PM for the Montgo-New Britain club and June 16 at 6:30 PM for Lehigh Passport Club.  Please sign up below to join in the celebration and welcome our newest Rotarians!   When circumstances allow, we will also be planning to hold face-to-face celebrations for both clubs.
Here are the two links to register for the Charter Night Zoom Celebrations.

Lehigh Valley Passport, Tuesday, June 16th, 6:30 pm:
To District 7430 Rotarians,
 
We have all received numerous emails about social distancing, washing our hands and being safe during this serious COVID-19 outbreak.  While we must heed all of these health and safety recommendations, we are also "People of Action" and there are people in our communities needing our help in many different ways. With this in mind, we are asking Rotarians to communicate these needs and stories of caring.  So far, we have identified three ways to do this:

Rotary Opens Opportunities

Rotary International President-elect Holger Knaack is encouraging Rotarians to seize the many opportunities Rotary offers to enrich their lives and the communities they serve

Knaack, a member of the Rotary Club of Herzogtum Lauenburg-Mölln, Germany, revealed the 2020-21 presidential theme, Rotary Opens Opportunities, to incoming district governors at the Rotary International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA, on 20 January.

 

Please join me in congratulating our 2022-2023 District Governor, Len Gieseler. The Nominating Committee met on December 5, 2019 and endorsed Len for this position.
 
One of the strengths of our District has been the selection of good leaders who have a passion for Rotary. Len certainly demonstrates both qualities.
On Sept 1, 8 intrepid Rotarians from District 7430 and 1 from a District in CA (John Kaufman), along with 16 volunteer doctors and nurses landed in Guatemala City for a 13 day Rotaplast Mission which was fully funded by YOU, District 7430!
