Leadership Planning
It's that time of year that our President Elect Phil Stewart will be constituting his leadership team for 2024-2025.  Phil will be attending PETS (President Elect Training Seminar) in March.  PETS is required for all Club Presidents and is a fantastic learning and networking opportunity.  And it's a lot of fun, too.
If you are interested in serving in some capacity, please reach out to Phil.  Phil has been coordinating the Food Bank Run and will be looking for someone to take that task on as he becomes President.
Positions to be filled are Officers and Directors and Committee Chairs.  
Rotary Readers Coming in March
March is Read Across America month and we will be doing our Rotary Readers program with the kindergarten classes.  We will be preparing the literacy bags at our February 26 meeting, that is, stuffing the bags with books etc.
We will be looking for Rotarians to volunteer to read to the K classes in March.  Stay tuned for the dates after we arrange that with the schools.
Chief Clark Visits
On January 22, Reading Police Chief David Clark was the speaker at our dinner meeting at RCTV.  Chief Clark gave a comprehensive overview of the RPD and how they are adapting to changing times and needs.  
Some highlights are that due to recent hires, RPD has Officers that speak Spanish, Arabic, Greek and Portuguese.  RPD Officers are trained in and emphasize de-escalation techniques.  RPD now has a motorcycle and has hybrid cruisers, the mountain bikes are returning in 2024.  On the upcoming Town Meeting agenda will be the requested purchase of a new dispatching system to replace the existing system from the early 1980's.  
Chief Clark offered to host a future meeting at the Police Station and to have other RPD staff available to speak and answer questions.
