Twenty-five years ago, nearly two dozen people banded together to form the West End Rotary Club. To celebrate its 25th anniversary, West End Rotary will host a charter dinner on Tuesday, Jan. 29 at the Scorecard, 130 N. Broadway in Wind Gap. Cocktails start at 6 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m.

Dinner selections include a choice of New York strip steak, grilled salmon or chicken parmigiana. The cost is $25 per person.

Please RSVP Karin Breitlauch by calling or texting (610) 390-2013 or sending email to by Jan. 21 and indicate your menu selection.

Sponsored by the Rotary club of the Stroudsburgs and chartered on Jan. 29, 1988, West End Rotary was one of the first Rotary clubs in the world to be chartered with a female officer. Four of the club's 22 charter members were women, the first such charter members in the district. Those members were Terri Zinn, Leona Wood, Jacquelyn Hallas and Patricia Slutter.

The club was founded by Wes Brush, Bob Wilson and Ron Dietrich. In addition to Wes, Ron, Terri and Leona, officers and directors included Tom Kresge, Parker Lindsay, Michael Scovil, Stan Roberts, Ross Blakeslee and Jeff Cohen.

If you have any stories or pictures to share with the group, please send them to Karin. She will assemble a photo montage. Digital media is preferred but actual photos could be used and returned after the event.
