War Memorial

Rotary International celebrated its centennial year in 2004-2005. Each club around the globe took on a project that would be a permanent tribute and asset within their communities. Warrington Rotarians designed and built a new War Memorial in Igoe Porter Wellings Park, home of the existing memorial named in honor of three local servicemembers who died in battle. We continually add names of service persons to the memorial wall. Lion’s Pride Park is the current name of the park.

Memorial Scholarship for Founding Member of Warrington Rotary
Steve Hazzard, a Warrington architect, and a board member of Hatboro Federal Savings was one of the founding members of the Warrington Rotary Club in 1965. On Steve’s passing in 2007 the board of Hatboro Federal Savings decided to memorialize his community work by funding an annual Rotary scholarship in his name. Subsequently each year the bank has donated $1,000 towards the “Stephen B. Hazzard Memorial Scholarship”.

Abby's Light
Abby's Light is a foundation, memorializing Abby Schumer, a selfless girl who lost the battle to a brain tumor at age 10. The foundation focuses on improving the lives of underprivileged children through gifts to hospitalized children, assistance to families in need and to schoolteachers in underprivileged school districts. Bucks County proclaimed November 19th, Abby’s birthday, as Random Acts of Kindness Day. Warrington Rotary has sponsored this foundation previously. 
Founded by Noach Braun, the mission of the Israel Guide Dog Center for the Blind is to help blind or visually impaired Israelis to obtain mobility, independence, and companionship.
