IN-PERSON MEETINGS TO RESUME SEPTEMBER 2, 2021, 7 a.m. at the Courtyard Marriott. If you cannot attend in person, you can attend our hybrid connection. More info will come.
Happy New Year!!!
What other organization do you know of that has a complete change in its top leadership every year on the same day – and does not skip a beat in its humanitarian work around the globe? This year’s Rotary International President-elect Shekhar Mehta encourages members to be changemakers and announced that his theme for the 2021-2022 Rotary year is Serve to Change Lives. See his story in the July issue of Rotarian magazine.
Congratulations, Madame President!
We welcome Joyce Henderson as out newest president of NMRC!

More money to help our neighbors
At the final Board of Directors meeting for 2020-2021, the remaining money from line 540 – Service Projects – was distributed. $1,000 will go to The Newark Partnership earmarked specifically for their project to assemble school supplies for teachers. An additional $1,000 will go to Hope Dining Room to help serve lunches to our needy residents. Hope Dining is located in Kingswood Methodist Church in Brookside.
Upcoming Projects need Leaders:
Watch for the opportunity to sign up to chair or co-chair an activity or event for our club for the next Rotary year. Tom Minto is looking for EVERYONE to participate in leadership roles. Being a chair does not mean you do all the work. You are just expected to coordinate the activity, solicit volunteers, oversee the activity, and report back to Tom.

Thought for the Week:
I’m getting tired of being part of a major historical event.
At least the Brood X cicadas are gone for another 17 years.
