It was a new experience for Sunrise Rotary as our meeting was held off site. We were lucky enough to tour the renovated Altoona Area Public Library following the extensive water damage to the building in 2020. The library is rich in history, including rare objects (stones), and offers so many community services. Blessed to have this gem in our county. Thanks Jen Knisely, E.D., and staff. https://altoonalibrary.org/
Dr. Michelle Knotts, assistant professor in the College of Education at Penn State University, had Rotarians thinking today about our role in making change happen. If we are indeed then we need to act! What are your social identities?

Throwing was a little 'wobbly' at first. But by the end, the USA Olympic Committee was approaching Altoona Sunrise Rotary members to join their axe throwing team! Thanks Coach Sydney Frank for turning us into champions! Thank you for your kindness to us, Slingers Throw House. And thanks, Al's Tavern, for the hospitality afterwards.
