Our club of dedicated volunteers works diligently
all year long raising funds and performing
hands on work for out many projects. Over
just the past nine years, we have raised and
disbursed over $84,000 in our local community.
Every year we give away four $500 scholarships
to students, who has been selected by their
guidance counselor. We do this in these partner
schools, Bishop Carroll, Central Cambria,
Admiral Perry Vo Tech and Blacklick Valley.
Dickens of a Christmas
Every year we get into the theme of this
wonderful Ebensburg event! Our members serve
up delicious hot chocolate to the folks who
are visiting Santa after the parade. We do
this as a community service to show the hospitality
of our town.
Twice a year a crew of Rotary members, organized
by Rotarian Jim Stratton, put on our protective
gear and clean up a 2 mile stretch of Route
219. We have a lot of fun as we help keep
our community looking beautiful.
Lake Rowena Benches
We have placed benches close to Lake Rowena,
at the borough pool and by the flower gardens.
These benches were made by students at Admiral
Peary Vo Tech and honor past Rotary Club of
Ebensburg presidents by featuring their names
on plaques that were crafted by students at
Blacklick Valley High School.
Concerts in the Park
Every year, we proudly sponsor one of the
Concerts in Penn Eben Park during the month
In partnership with The Ebensburg Main Street
Partnership, Ebensburg Public Library, and
the CCCDC, four lending libraries have been
placed at the following locations: YPCC, Gazebo
at Penn Eben Park, Revloc Recreation Park,
and the Mini Mall near Kosta’s. Stop in to
one of the libraries to grab a good book or
drop one off for someone else to enjoy! A
special thanks to Duane Mohney for making
the beautiful libraries.
We are proud to partner with the Dictionary
Project and our local elementary schools.
Third grade students at Blacklick Valley,
Central Cambria, Holy Name and Cambria County
Christian and Jackson Elementary are gifted
an actual dictionary to help them with their
World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh
Annually we provide an opportunity for a
few local students to attend a World Affairs
event in Pittsburgh, accompanied by one of
our Rotarians. This year, Rotarian Jim Stratton
accompanied 2 Central Cambria Students to
Pittsburgh to learn about Cuba and the World
Thanks to the leadership of Rotarian Fred
Creany, who is the lead on this project, the
club members get together a few times a year
to plant, weed, water and upkeep the beautiful
gardens on the south end of town by the Ghost
Town trail head.
