June 22, 2023 IMAGINE Rotary!
Reminder: check out our Facebook page for pictures!
https://95896improvements.com/ As suggested by Bill Sullivan, avoid I95 at 273 and 896. Construction has begun and is a nightmare. Even 72 south of Newark is one lane under the I95 overpass. Find the backroads to travel.
Final Days for President Clinton!
Well, not literally. But these are the final meetings for Pres. Clinton to lead our club. Let’s send him off with a great showing of support and appreciation at the last two dinner meetings of the Rotary year. Annual dinner on Thursday will highlight the past year’s successes and recognize leadership and contributions of club and community leaders.
Phillies Game, Anyone?
Let’s revive an old club tradition of attending the Phillies’ Strike Out Hunger Night on Aug. 8. See Marie Holliday to add your name to the list for tickets and potential bus ride.
We’re ready to charter! We have our initial 8 required members but could always use more. Do you know someone who is service minded but can’t attend our regular Rotary meetings? Give their name and contact info to Paul Keely for an invitation to join.
