Wishing former members success in their new Rotary venture

Happy New Year!
The holidays are now behind us but the impact we made in December in several areas will be felt for a while longer. We rang the bell for the Salvation Army’s Kettle Drive helping to raise funds that will provide housing and food for the needy, supported the Newark Area Welfare Committee’s holiday food program that gave boxes of food to more than 500 families, and made the holidays a little bit happier for more than 20 children in an impoverished neighborhood. New toys were donated to the Marines Toys For Tots program. Thank you to all members for your participation.
Wishing former members success in their new Rotary venture
Over the past six months, several members and former members of our club worked to form a new Rotary club in Newark. The club, to be named Newark STAR Rotary Club, formally submitted their application to the District Governor in December with 21 names on their application.  The DG signed their application and submitted to RI for approval of charter. We wish them well in their endeavor to serve the community in the spirit of Rotary.
Members resigned
The following members have formally resigned from our club and will transfer to the Newark STAR club: Kelly Bachman, Nancy Chase, Jason Lawhorn, Michael Luck, Leanne Moore, Joyce Henderson, Anthony Santoro, Polly Sierer (resigned in June), and Margie Masino (resigned in July). Christina Macmillan also resigned due to work relocation to Kennett Square. Her business will become a corporate member of the club at Longwood Gardens.

Boys and Girls Surprised!
At an earlier meeting Rotarians Stu Sherman and Dave Bonk asked if we were able to help sponsor the holiday gift giving and party for 150 kids at the Roseville Boys and Girls Club in New Castle. With a pledge of club funds and additional personal member support, our total of $2,600 made about 20 youngsters at the Boys and Girls Club very happy. Robin and Clinton were on hand at the Dec. 21 holiday party to present a “big check” that paid for their gifts, including clothes and toys. Thank you to everyone who participated.

Have you called your BUDDY this week? Even those on Leave of Absence could use a call to stay in touch.
Welcome our newest members Laurie Williams, her sidekick Breeze, and Dave Bonk. Both are previous members of Christiana Rotary Club. 
Helping our Younger Neighbors
At an earlier meeting former Rotarians Stu Sherman and Dave Bonk asked if we were able to help sponsor the holiday gift giving and party for 150 kids at the Roseville Boys and Girls Club in New Castle. President Clinton will make $1000 of his budgeted funds available toward this project. Our members have stepped up to more than match that amount with pledges of more than $1,600. Way to go, Rotarians!
20 new toys going to Toys For Tots
Thank you to the members who donated new toys for needy children. They were delivered to the Toys For Tots collection site at Bloom Energy. If you didn’t get to donate, there is still time to drop off a NEW UNWRAPPED toy at Bloom or give to Ty Jones. Ho Ho Ho.
Help needed for District Grant Project with Newark Area Welfare Fund 
Volunteers can register times they can help with the Holiday Food Boxes through Newark Area Welfare Fund.

Now we need to step up and doing the hands-on part. Please set aside some time to help. Jerry Holt’s message sent last week has the link to register.
And when you are there volunteering, please take pictures of Rotarians in action and send to Bill Sullivan and Jerry Holt. Jerry  will need them to submit our Final Report on the grant project.

They’re down and stored safely at Bayshore Moving and Transportation for another year. Many thanks to everyone who helped in one way or another with this project. We brought in more than $21,000 with very few expenses. And with any luck next year, the project can be even more profitable and less labor intensive (i.e. those holes will be easier to find)!

Flags For Heroes 2022 –
Thank you to everyone who helped with the glorious display of nearly 500 flags flying proudly at the Newark Reservoir in honor of our heroes, both past and present. Sponsors of one flag or more than 50 each, they made a statement of respect, honor, appreciation and admiration. The Sunday ceremony was a bit breezy but made the display even more special. A special thanks to the committee members who spent hours making this happen.
Stars and Strides 5k raises $$ and level of Fellowship
You never would expect two of our members to participate in their first 5K but both Robin and Clinton crossed the finish line! Our team, also including Paul, BJ, Cindi, Tom, Stewart, Mike R, Doris, Ty, and Lynn (in spirit only!) walked proudly in Bloom Energy’s fundraiser for support of our veterans. We were proud to be there and look forward to next year. It was more than just a free tee-shirt!

Like a river curving and carving along the edges of the banks, you are a force to be reckoned with, here to become who you were always meant to be.                          ……  by Katie  Dobrina (in Magnolia Magazine)

Have you called your BUDDY this week? Even those on Leave of Absence could use a call to stay in touch.
Flags For Heroes 2022 – Last chance to 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.
Schedule:
Saturday, Oct. 29 Set up flags beginning at 9 a.m.
Sunday, Nov. 13, Ceremony at 11 a.m.
Saturday, Nov. 19, Take down flags
World’s Greatest Meal – Our PolioPlus Fundraiser THIS WEEK
This week is 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 email Robin with your donation item(s).
Here are suggestions: gift basket, a corporate donation certificate, personally hand crafted items, home-brewed beer, holiday decorated cookies, new jewelry, paintings or prints. Be creative: offer yourself for a service (cook a dinner, do gardening or yard work, wash some one’s car, etc.) Evelyn cleaned out her closet full of NEW “gifts” that she had received, The Courtyard is donating a dinner event value of $100, Paul’s got cookies and beverage, and other items are a surprise until Thursday morning.
Helping our Neighbors
Last week former Rotarians Stu Sherman and Dave Bonk asked if we were able to help sponsor the holiday gift giving and party for 150 kids at the Roseville Boys and Girls Club in New Castle. We will discuss at today’s meeting. If you personally or your business would like to sponsor any children or help with holiday shopping, let Robin know and I will get their contact info to you.
