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.

Grant ideas?
Never let free money lay on the table. Each year we have the opportunity to apply for a district grant to support a project accomplished by our club. This year we are supporting Camp Fairlee with scholarships and Welcome bags for the counselors. Most recent projects include outfitting the Newark PAL trailer, funding a training video for Lori’s Hands, music lessons and instruments for children, custom bicycles for handicapped youth, purchasing display cases for a new science museum, training video for  Seeing Eye puppy trainers.
Talk to Jerry Holt or Robin Broomall if you have an idea. Projects should be started and completed between July 2022 and May 2023.
