Welcome to Rotary District 7430!

 
 

We are nearly 2000 community leaders located in Montgomery, Bucks, Berks, Lehigh and Northampton Counties of Southeastern Pennsylvania.  We are People of Action and part of a global network of 1.2 million like-minded individuals. As members of 46 Rotary Clubs we share a unique passion for taking action to improve our local communities and the world. Our causes include promoting peace, supporting the environment, fighting disease, providing clean water and sanitation, saving mothers and children, supporting education and growing local economies.  

If you would like to know more, please feel free to use the Contact Us button.  We'd love you to join us!

D7430 is proud to share more inspiring People of Action stories.  This month we feature two Rotarians who through their desire to serve, have gained meaningful experiences as well as forged lasting friendships along the way.  We hope they inspire you too.
 
District 7430 Recognized by Rotary International
 
District 7430, under the leadership of PDG Herb Klotz, has been award the District Rotary Citation. Our District is one of only 93 worldwide to receive this award which honors Rotary Districts in which at least half of the Rotary Clubs earned the Rotary Citation.  The award recognizes the work of clubs to increase their membership, contribute to The Rotary Foundation, serve their communities, participate in Rotary programs and improve their public image.
 
Thank you to all Rotarians in D7430 that keep our 46 clubs vibrant, growing and serving our communities!!
 
The power of connection we have with family and friends in Rotary call us to action in our communities.  In this month's People of Action video we hear from three inspiring women whose connection to Rotary is deeply rooted in family and service.
 
On February 23rd clubs around the world will celebrate World Rotary Day to mark the 116th Anniversary of Rotary. This month's People of Action video celebrates Rotarians in our District telling their Rotary story of how being a Rotarian has impacted their lives.
 
What holds us together are Rotary’s Core Values.
 
Research Professor Brene Brown describes value as a way of being or believing that we hold most important.
 
These are Rotary’s core values:
Fellowship – the relationships and friendships that connect us all.
Integrity – when we choose what is right to do, not necessarily what may be easy.
Diversity – all people are welcome and valued to be part of our fellowship.
Service – the actions we take to help others.
Leadership – we show our leadership when we bring people together to act in service.
 
Living into our values means that we do more than profess them, we practice them.   The Rotary "People of Action" Stories being shared this year in the monthly videos show how we practice them in our District.  This month we thank DGE Bob, DGN Len and Diane DGND for sharing their stories.  We thank you for your leadership!

ShelterBox has reached 200,000 people in 2020, bringing the total served since being created twenty years ago to over 1.7 million people sheltered. This was accomplished by the support of clubs and districts like ours. Sustained help enables ShelterBox to be better prepared to respond quickly and efficiently to reach families when disaster or conflict damages or destroys their home.
 
District 7430 has been recognized as one of the
Top 20 all-time Rotary District supporters of ShelterBox USA! 
 
Additionally...
 
Saucon Center Valley Rotary Club
and

The friendships and fellowship we enjoy as Rotarians continue to support the work of Rotary in our Clubs, District and around the world.   Watching the monthly videos and hearing People of Action stories, we realize the power of connection that continues to inspire us all.  I encourage you to take some time during this holiday season, and as we begin 2021, to reflect on your Rotary life and the opportunities it has given you.  Wishing you a most joyful holiday season!
