Award Applications ready, Awards presented in June
At our annual dinner on June 19 we will honor members of the community with the Ray Civatte Community Service Award and the Public Service Award. A business will be presented the Spirit in Business Award. But we cannot recognize individuals without knowing who they might be. If you know someone who fits the description, please contact our awards chairs for applications.
Ray Civatte Community Service Award – to a non-Rotarian who has volunteered their time for the betterment of the greater Newark Community. See Amanda McGinty for application.
Public Service Award– a  non-Rotarian (police officer, EMT, fireman) who has gone above and beyond their job description to help keep us safe. See Sujan Timilsina for application.
Spirit in Business Award – to a business that does more than just watch the bottom line but dedicates itself to the betterment of society. See Bill Sullivan for application.
Vocational Award (followed by a Vocational Grant) – to a Rotarian who has used his/her skills and resources for the betterment of greater Newark. See Robin for application.
Nothing like Hands On Work!
Saturday, 7:50 a.m. gather at the church on corner of Old Baltimore Pike and Otts Chapel Road for a fun-filled adventure of picking up other-peoples trash! Yep, nothing like finding those mini bottles of booze, plastic water bottles, butts, and who knows what else. Seriously, we will clean up about a one mile section of Barry Baker’s favorite historic road, taking only one hour of your time. Wear long pants and socks that cover your cuffs, bring gloves. Bags and pick-up sticks will be provided, along with insect spray. Barry will have a sign-up sheet at this week’s meeting.
Ready for a Mystery?
Join us on a Magical Mystery Tour of the area on our way to a wonderful dinner. On Wednesday, May 29, at 5:30 p.m. we will assemble at Presbyterian Church parking lot on W. Main Street (next to Newark Country Club). From there we will be given instructions to drive to a mystery
restaurant for dinner. Drivers will leave at 5 minute intervals so we can’t follow each other. Given landmarks to follow, you will arrive approximately one hour later at a restaurant for dinner. Suggestions: have a full tank of gas; have a good navigator; be prepared to pay for your dinner when there.
Cindi and Mark will have a sign up sheet.

Thought for the Week:

“A righteous man falls down seven times and gets up.” – King Solomon, Proverbs, 24:16.

Life is all about the ability to get up from challenge. Greatness is defined as getting up one more time than what you’ve fallen down. The Torah defines someone who’s righteous not as someone who had succeeded, but someone who has persevered. It creates a paradigm of what righteousness is – trying to do what’s right, getting up from failure, and keep moving forward. Charlie Harary
