Nominations Now being Accepted
The first reason our club has been so successful is that we were built on a foundation of leaders who knew the history of Rotary and its traditions and the importance of supporting The Rotary Foundation. The second reason, and now after 24+ years of existance perhaps the most important, is our establishing a  succession plan to ensure the continuation of good leadership practices. This year’s nomination committee consisting of Past President Robin, Past President Clinton, and President Stewart is now accepting nominations for the 2024-25 officers. The most important office to be filled is Vice President. That member would automatically be nominated to President Elect in 2025-26 and then President in 2026-27. If you would like to nominate yourself or another worthy club member, please submit your/their name to Robin. Elections will take place in January.

IMPACT seeking toiletries

For the first big service project, the IMPACT cllub is seeking donations of basic necessities: shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, disposable razors, sports bras, and underwear to be donated to sober living homes in the community. Call IMPACT member Brooke at 302-373-230 with your questions. You can bring them to our next meeting and we will get them to Brooke. Timeline is January 15 to February 4.

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. Details are being worked out for date and time. Stay tuned!

Rotary Has Heart
