The Fifth Question: Will it be fun?
You never know with President Clinton what we will do next. If you see a weekly program as “??????”, it could be planned as a speaker, a service project, a Fellowship activity, a special meal, or just plain FUN. Just come and be surprised!
The Picnic WAS Fun!
Thank you Cindi and Jamie for arranging our annual picnic and the Courtyard for hosting. The food was great but the opportunity for fellowship was even greater. We were even introduced to our newest member Sujan’s family.
Food Bank Volunteers needed
We still need about 8 volunteers for Saturday, Oct. 8 at the Food Bank. We start at 10 and end precisely at noon, sorting and assembling non-perishables for backpacks for school children or for community boxes. If you are a Rotarian for SERVICE, this is your opportunity. Register as a volunteer at fbd.org, then signup for Saturday Oct. 8. You will be glad you did!!!
Welcome our newest Members!
Sujan Timilsina is now on board with us as our latest member. Sujan was a Rotaractor at the Katmandu Medical Center. Currently he is in biotechnology with Charles River Technologies. What a privilege to have him join us.
Be sure to introduce your self to the other new members:
Amanda McGinty, with the UD Resident Ensemble Players, will be a Service Member.
The Vero At Newark will be a Corporate Member. Attending on behalf of Vero will be Frank DeMarinis, BJ DiDonato, and Terri Doody.
Returning to our fold is Tom D’Agostino, former member and now Director of Sales for the Courtyard.
The club extends to Linda Sayther, widow of our friend Paul,  the opportunity to join us at events and whenever she desires as an Honorary Member.
Flags For Heroes 2022 – Line up your Sponsors
In our first year 2018 we cleared $2,000 with about 150 flags flying, in 2019 we cleared $6,000. In 2021 we grew to 500 flags flying and had $20,000 in sponsorships. Yes, we had extra costs last year due to the purchase of about 350 additional flags. Now that we have the flags and will have little in expenses, our goal is $25,000 PROFIT. Proceeds will be going to veterans’ organizations. Visit our website www.nmrde.org for an inspiring video and info on sponsoring flags. We can’t do this alone, so ask friends and businesses to sponsor, too.
World’s Greatest Meal – Our PolioPlus Fundraiser
Only three weeks away from our annual morning meeting to support the Rotary International PolioPlus program. We will have the usual breakfast but with a slight change. All money raised that day (fines, happy dollars, 50/50) will go toward polio eradication. A Silent Auction will be held with items donated by our members being bid upon. It will NOT be held online this year so you have no idea what bargains will be displayed. This is a chance for you to donate an item and well as bid on items. (Remember only 59 days after that until Christmas!) All money you donate that day will be credited toward you for a Rotary International donation. Please see Robin with your donation item(s).
Have you called your BUDDY this week? Even those on Leave of Absence could use a call to stay in touch.

Clothing Delivered
Thank you, everyone, for helping to make someone else more comfortable in their “new” clothes. Many bags and hangers were delivered by Steve Fangman and Clinton Tymes to the Clothing Bank for Friendship House/Empowerment Centers. The homeless and financially challenged around Delaware appreciate your help. See our Facebook page for pictures.
Community Day a Success!
Great day in Newark last Sunday as we participated in Community Day.

We Can Support Newark PAL, fellowship, and Show Newark WE ARE HERE!
Two years ago we supported the newly established Newark PAL with a district grant to supply games, videos, etc for the traveling PAL trailer. Today the Newark PAL has received a $10,000 grant to continue to outfit the trailer with shelving, storage, a new inflatable TV screen and other items to make the program even stronger as they travel around the city engaging with children.
A 5k walk/run to support Newark PAL will take place Sunday Sept. 25 beginning at 9 a.m. south of the Aetna Firehall on Academy Street. CAN WE ALL PARTICIPATE AND WALK TOGETHER TO SHOW THE STRENGTH OF OUR ROTARY CLUB? Just one hour of your time on Sunday morning. No stress. Just time to support PAL, a time for fellowship, and show the city of Newark we are HERE! Registration is just $19. There will be donuts and coffee at Klondike Kates following the walk/run. It’s an easy 3 mi route. Register and pay here for the Donut Dash:

Clothing Needed
This week we will help fill an urgent need of mens and childrens, as well as women’s, clothing for the Clothing Bank of Friendship House/Empowerment Center. The local centers, including the Empowerment Center in Newark, support homeless, the unemployed, and those who need financial resources. Purge your closet of clean and still wearable jeans, pants, shirts, jackets, and that shirt your spouse hates seeing you wear. Bring them to Thursday’s meeting and Steve Fangman has volunteered to deliver them to the Clothing Bank in Wilmington.  Help others while helping yourself.

Monthly Meeting Format to Change
In response to many suggestions and comments during President Clinton’s meetings with members, the monthly schedule will be more flexible with fewer invited speakers. The first and third weeks will be Featured Speakers, the second week will be Fellowship, and the fourth week will be Club Assembly and Board of Director’s meeting. If there is a fifth week, we anticipate holding an Upside Down meeting where we MIGHT meet at 7 p.m. instead of 7 a.m. Stay tuned…..
