Coudersport – August 16, 2010: Several long-term Coudersport Rotarians were recognized for their years of service and dedication to the Coudersport Rotary Club this past Monday as they posed with the newly elected District Governor Bill Wylie and his wife Fran of Romney, West Virginia.

Larry Hall has been a member of the Coudersport Rotary since the early 1970’s. According to his fellow Rotarians, Larry has been an all-around excellent Rotary member, always being willing to assist with the rotary food booths, community parades and annual fundraising auction.

George Hults will celebrate his 28th year of Rotary membership this year and currently serves as an Assistant Governor for Rotary District 7350, which is composed of approximately 2,000 Rotarians in 45 Rotary Clubs extending across Pennsylvania to Maryland and West Virginia. According to George, “Rotary is an international organization which spear-heads projects like providing polio vaccinations to the more impoverished countries, however I am just as proud of our Club’s local efforts such as the Thanksgiving turkey and food drives and the CARP playground equipment that our Club purchased and installed.”

During his extended years of membership Bob Smith (“Smitty”) has been the moving force behind the Club’s Citizens of Tomorrow program; a program where highschool juniors and seniors participate in the Club’s weekly meetings. Smitty is also a strong advocate of the Coudersport Rotary’s continued sponsorship of the area’s Inner City Baseball League (as well as the Phillies).

Bruce Cahilly has served the Coudersport Rotary Club through his membership for over 40 years. “I’m embarrassed to admit that when I first became a member of the Coudersport Rotary Club, women were not permitted to join,” recalls Bruce. “Ironically, my youngest daughter is now serving as our Club’s president and our membership includes nearly as many women as it does men!” added Bruce.

Not present was Paul Herzig (1987) and the Honorable Judge John Leete (1980). Paul has traditionally co-chaired the Halloween Parade and Costume Contest Committee each year as well as the Club’s Annual Dinner Auction, an event sponsored by the Club to raise money for its annual projects and scholarships.

John’s favorite Coudersport Rotary Program is the foreign exchange program. Many other Rotary clubs have had difficulty maintaining their foreign exchange program, however John has been instrumental in creating foreign exchange opportunities for more than 20 local students over the years and he has secured numerous host families for those foreign students visiting the Coudersport area.

Smitty is indeed the Phillie Phanatic.

Smitty -- LOL.
There are some things about Coudersport that never change and every time I come back I see them or hear them:
Smitty, Sheetz run, the good old dildine, WFRM Radio 600 (different music these days), people squawking about flatlanders and saying there are no more deer, last call at the 'Woods and more.

Yes pal but there are a lot of things that do change too. Look at Olgas Cafe on the corner in the middle of town. A new pipe storage place is going up out by the Catholic cemetery. The Millstream has added cabins and is going to add more rooms. We have some pretty smart people in public office and Fezz's Diner and well a lot of good changes in the recent years.
Yes we still have Smitty and the good old dildine which made it onto national TV with the world series and the Stanley Cup finals by the way (no not Smitty, the dildine). Things that good are destined to last.
So don't think we're standing still.

OMG, Smitty and the dildine.
Those are like SO Coudersport. LMAO!
Smitty use to play music as a deejay at dances and the students use to chant dildine dildine to put the hex on the other team at the basketball games. Do they still do that? Smitty looks pretty spry considering his advanced years. Is Little Smitty still working in West Virginia and does he ever get home to see his pop and the old school buds? I hope Coudersport is coming back now from the Adelphia meltdown. We pray every night for Mr. Rigas to be able to come home. Howdy Coudersport! Still close to our hearts.
Bill and Leila
