25th Anniversary in February
Twenty-five years ago the naysayers said, “There is no room for another service club in Newark.” We proved them wrong! We will celebrate our anniversary next month with a special dinner on WEDNESDAY, FEB. 28, 2024, 6 p.m. in our usual room at the Courtyard. Spouses and guests are invited. Word has it that Jim Streit, one of our co-founders will be coming from Florida just for the occasion. And we are digging out the old photos… And a club photo will be taken.
Rotary Has Heart
Stock up now on non-perishables for the collection in February for the Food Bank. Our team of Dave Bonk, Laurie Williams, Sujan Timilsina, and BJ DiDonato will be collecting between Feb. 1 and 20. Needed are: canned fruits (low or no sugar added), low sugar hot and cold cereals, meats canned in water, rice, beans, pasta, mac and cheese, peanut butter, jelly, soups, stews, prepared meats.
2024 Report Campaign has kicked off
Cindi Viviano has distributed lists of previously sold ads. Let’s get kicking! The contest begins….
If you chaired a project or event, or you can write a little, please let Doug Rainey know that you can get an article to him to be in the Report. Don’t worry about your “style” because Doug can check it or help you with details. Just remember the 5 W’s – who, what, where, when, and why.
Power of Persuasion ??
HA! To all the naysayers: Yes, being in touch with every member can inspire In-person attendance at our weekly meetings. It was great to see Bob Foard, Steve Fangman, and Josh Martin last week. All it took was a few email messages (and pleading!) to get them to come. In-person attendance has been down. Where are you? Where is your buddy? Give him/her a call and commit to being at the next meeting. [Has anyone seen Dennis?]
