Program for Jan. 29
Our award-winning homework club at Downes Elementary will be starting up again next week for the fifth year. Officially known as CATCH (Coordinated Approach To Children’s Health), the program was designed by A.I. DuPont Foundation to enrich the lives of elementary aged students while working to establish a healthier school environment. The program is coordinated by Tyler DeBruin through the City of Newark’s Parks and Recreation Department, with our volunteer and financial support, to make it happen. Two days a week, for six weeks in Fall and again in late Winter, approximately 14 students come to the library at dismissal time for a healthy snack and help with homework and additional tutoring, then go to the gym or outside for organized games that help get rid of some of that pent-up energy. Parents pick them up by 5 p.m. Thank you to all our Rotary volunteers for making this a successful program.

Show Rotary Has Heart – on the 12th!

Help restock the shelves of Newark Area Welfare Committee by bringing non-perishable food items (in plastic, cans, or boxes, please no glass jars!) to our Feb. 12 meeting. Suggested items include: pasta, tomato sauce, small jars of peanut butter, mac and cheese, oatmeal, fruit cups, vegetables, soup, rice, granola bars, cereal. The items will be collected, along with those donated by Aspira Academy and Newark Charter School, and taken to the NAWC storage for distribution to the area’s hungry and needy. 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the last Report to the Community, a new rule is in place: If money for an ad is not received by April 15, the ad will not be published.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.

Opportunities for Rotary Education

All members are invited to attend the Rotary Leadership Institute, Saturday April 18, at the Hotel DuPont in Wilmington. The all-day session is divided into parts 1, 2, 3, and graduate level for every level of Rotarian. If you are new to Rotary, this is a wonderful way to learn more about the organization and how wide spread our service relationships become. Register on-line at Pay the $95 registration fee, then give your receipt to Marie Holliday for refund. So basically it is a full day of education, fellowship, fun and FOOD for free!!!

Bulletin going Bi-Weekly at least until the end of April. Weekly reminders will still be emailed.

Thought for the Week:

Love not only makes the world go ‘round, it makes a lot of people dizzy!

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.
