April 25, 2019 Be An Inspiration!
April 18 program:
The old Downtown Newark Partnership has morphed into a new organization that includes businesses, community leaders, residents, university and non-profits all across the Greater Newark region, not just Main Street businesses. Mayor Polly Sierer updated us on the four main committees of the combination civic/chamber structure: non-profit will develop a database of all non-profits serving the city; community engagement will give all constituents’ an opportunity to have their voices heard; economic enhancement will bring business owners from all across the city, not just those on Main street; events committee will bring new and fresh ideas as well as outsiders to the city.

Last Chance to Register: District Conference A “Must Attend”
If you have never attended a Rotary 7630 District Conference, this year’s event is a chance for you to meet other Rotarians in our district, hear about the fabulous projects happening, and participate in a service project – all at a location convenient for us in the northern part of our district. The Chase Center in Wilmington is about as good as it can get. See the weekly Rotary Reminders for full details. It begins with dinner Friday evening, all day programs and service activity on Saturday, dinner and entertainment Saturday night, and a memorial service Sunday morning. You can register for the full package or pick and choose when you want to attend.
To register for the conference go to:
The first five members who register for the District Conference, and show their confirmation to Robin will receive $100 toward your registration. This is a bargain!!!
