Welcome from Denny Lanctot, President 2023-2024


Welcome to the Morrisville-Yardley Area Rotary Club! This club has a long history of serving the community and the world. Chartered in 1928, the club has partnered with other service organizations such as the Salvation Army and the Family Backpack Center in Morrisville to help those who are hungry and in need. It developed a community garden and learning center at the Grandview Elementary School, and provided books and dictionaries to libraries in Morrsiville and Pennsbury schools. Each year, a well deserving high school senior in Morrisville High School has been awarded the club's annual scholarship for academic excellence and outstanding community service. In addition, the club offers opportunity for two local high school students to participate in "Camp Neidig", a youth leadership development program run by the club's Rotary District 7430. 


Rotarians volunteer regularly at the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen and serve as Canal Tenders for the Friends of the Delaware Canal clean up and preservation. The club holds an annual Morrisville Community Easter Egg Hunt in Williamson Park which it has done for well over seventy years. 


It has conducted fundraisers that also provide for social gatherings, including country breakfasts and the Yardley Car Festival. It also has provided a "nourishment concession" at Morrisville's Winterfest celebration. It current is planning a Corn Hole fundraiser in partnership with Snipes Farm and Education Center.


Globally, the Morrisville-Yardley Area Rotary Club supports several international projects that serve health needs of people in other parts of the world. It previously closed out a water filter project that serves needy residents of Lima, Peru. The club and its members support Rotaplast, an organization that provides free cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries for children in countries where medical services are limited, ShelterBox, an organization that provides immediate shelter and help to to those struck by tragedy and disaster, and PolioPlus, the Rotary inspired fight that has provided polio vaccine to more then 2.5 billion children throughout the world.
