Welcome to the Rotary Club of West Shore

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead

Our club members are dedicated people who share a passion for community service and friendship.
If you are an established professional who wants to make positive changes in the world and in your
community - particularly Camp Hill, Lemoyne, and New Cumberland - come join us!
What's Happening at the Rotary Club of the West Shore
November 2023 - Rotary District 7390 recently held its annual Rotary Foundation Dinner. We are pleased that our little club left with a bit of swag, including a banner for 100% Foundation Giving, a banner for reaching the threshold of Every Rotarian Every Year, and... after a six-year hiatus... an award for Best Club in the extra-small category.
Club leadership offers up a huge shout to members who made our 2022-2023 Rotary year so successful.
September 2023 - You've all probably heard of the book, The Little Engine That Could. We like to think of ourselves as The Little Club That Could!
Our club is honored to receive a Rotary International Citation for setting and achieving goals in 2022-23. While we recognize that there are a lot of great activities happening within the District, we are also a bit overwhelmed that we are the only club in District 7390 to receive the award this year. 
We are also honored to receive a District 7390 District Governor Citation! We worked hard to expand our reach and imagine Rotary a bit differently. You can read more about the criteria for this award by clicking here
We vow to continue this work in Rotary Year 2023-24. If you would like to join us, check out our Get Involved page.
In the words of Margaret Mead, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed individuals can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
September 2023 - On Friday, September 1, members of the RCWS, their spouses, and a few friends met at the Penn Harris Hotel to install this year's flags for the club's fourth annual Flags for Heroes event.
We were grateful for a cool, sunny morning with a slight breeze which allows the flags to really show off. More pictures are available on the RCWS Facebook page.
Our dedication ceremony is scheduled for Monday, September 11, 2023. The public is invited to attend the event, and additional details are available by clicking here
Once again, the Rotary Club of West Shore participated in Camp Hill Borough's National Night Out.
The children enjoyed the patriotic themed temporary tattoos - designed to tie in to our club's Flags for Heroes event - as well as the glow bracelets and lollipops. Club members had an opportunity to talk to the adults about Rotary and its mission.
We are grateful to Mother Nature for giving us our second year in a row of perfect weather for the event!
There will be no formal meeting of the RCWS on Thursday, August 3, 2023. Instead, consider joining us at the Salvation Army Harrisburg Capital City Region (506 South 29th Street; Harrisburg) as we distribute dictionaries to students in fourth through eighth grade who are enrolled in their summer program. The distribution is scheduled to occur between 8:30 - 9:00 am (ish). Hope to see you there!
July 2023 - Wow, what a great way to kick off the new Rotary year! Thank you to the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra for sharing your talent, the Borough of Lemoyne for including us, club members for giving your time, patrons for helping us raise money to support water and environmental initiatives through Rotary International, and Mother Nature for keeping the heavy rain at bay until we were packed up and in the car!
May 2023 - We are happy to announce that the Rotary Club of West Shore will once again be hosting its Flags for Heroes event! The 2023 event will see a few differences, including flags being on display for the entire month of September. This is a notable change from our first year when they were up for one week.
We are grateful to the Penn Harris Hotel for once again providing the site for this powerful display that honors the heroes in our neighborhood and in our lives.
For more information, and to register your hero, be sure to visit the Flags for Heroes 2023 page.
Thank you for supporting the Rotary Club of West Shore and the organizations that we are able to help through this event!
April 2023 - Members of the Rotary Club of West Shore grabbed some gloves, donned brightly colored vests, a box of trash bags and set out to clean up the community. We gathered trash in the area near the transit center as well as the bottleneck.
We are happy to be able to lend a helping hand in the local community!
