Program for Feb. 5
Classification Talks: Dan Spinosa is back with us again after about a year of difficult commuting to Philadelphia every day. He is now employed at Swarthmore Financial Services in Newark, bringing him closer to his family.

John Hornor's resume' might look like he couldn't hold a job - but that's because most of the businesses he worked for were sold off to another. John grew up in Central New Jersey, attending Rutgers. After getting his BS, MS, and PhD are in ceramic engineering, he went to work with DuPont, then took a circuitous route to retire with GE. Before injuring his ankle, John was an avid runner, averaging 20-25 miles/week. Since retiring, he's been caught up in working with Hope Dining Room, now executive director for 17 years.Upcoming Programs.

Showing Rotary Has Heart – on the 12th!

The shelves are better stocked at Newark Area Welfare Committee now that Rotarians have shown they have heart! Bags and bags of food items were collected, along with those donated by Aspira Academy and Newark Charter School. Thank you, Laura and Jennifer, for heading this event.

No Money, No Ad in 2015 Report

Because there were (and still are) so many outstanding payments for ads in the last Report to the Community, a new rule is in place: If money for an ad is not received by April 15, the ad will not be published. Please start your sales opportunities early so we do not have to disappoint anyone when the 2015 Report hits the newsstands at the end of May.

Sell the Centerfold?
Biggest change in the 2015 Report to the Community is the opportunity to sell a $4,000 ad to cover BOTH pages of the centerfold, in color and on glossy paper, just like the cover. Go big in your contacts and sell that ad!!!

Thought for the Week:

Tip to reduce weight: Turn your head to the right, then to the left. Repeat this exercise every time you are offered food!

Can’t make our meeting?

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.

All Rotarians are welcomed to attend another club’s meeting. Be prepared to pay for your meal and bring the makeup slip back to our secretary for attendance and invoice credit.
