Our Mission:

The mission of the Newark Morning Rotary Club is to advance the programs of Rotary International and to improve the quality of life of people in need in the greater Newark area. We support a variety of community service projects through financial assistance and hands-on activities while maintaining a warm environment of fellowship among our members.

Rotary International is dedicated to causes that build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever. The Seven Areas of Focus of Rotary International include: Promoting Peace; Fighting Disease; Providing Clean Water, Sanitation and Hygiene; Saving Mothers and Children thru Health; Supporting Education and Literacy; Growing Local Economies; and Protecting the Environment.


STILL NEEDED!  Monthly program chairs are needed for  May, June, and July. Contact Anthony at anthony@diamondstatephotography.com. He will have the monthly schedule and outline of duties.

Bored and need something to read/listen to during the cold days?
Check out the podcasts of Mihalik, titled Auralcheology, in which he acts as a “digital crate digger” to find frequently esoteric or forgotten music and musicians which he introduces to the listener. He will be our speaker on Feb. 3, talking about music, podcasting, and finding rare music. Find Auralcheology wherever you search for podcasts.
And to prepare for the Feb. 10th program, you might want to read these two books both available on Amazon:
Defeating Dementia: My Recovery From Alzheimer’s: McNear, Francis C. (A Blue Hen!); 9781790133765
The End of Alzheimer’s: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline: Bredesen, Dale E. M.D.

Welcome, Doris!

Don’t Lose That Pin!
Ouch! Yes, prices of everything are going up – including Rotary pins. If you need a new pin it will now cost you $4!!! So hang on tight to your pin or be prepared to pay out. Need a new badge? That is now a hefty $12!
Board Decision
Last week the Board voted 7 – 3 against obtaining a club debit card. We will continue the practice to put charges on individual member’s credit card and then be reimbursed by the treasurer.
Reminder: Invoice payments due upon receipt!

How can you trust a forecast made by a crusty old mammal who sleeps underground, comes out of his hole, blinks, and goes back to sleep?
