May 7, 2020  Rotary Connects the World!

All club meetings will be conducted via Zoom until further notice. Please contact Robin at rbroomall@usa.net if you did not receive the Zoom link for this week’s meeting.


Happy/Crappy Dollars? We are still accepting them weekly, but you need to keep track of them and pay up when we meet again in person. Remember the Four Way Test???

The Company Store is Now Open for Business

Need (or want) Rotary apparel or stuff? Paul Keely is opening our “Swag Store” for members to purchase a variety of items with our club logo on them. Twenty percent of the proceeds will go into a club covid19 fund to be used for support of our community. Limited time only to shop so check it out.

Here’s a link to take you directly there;
Or you can visit by going to our club webpage (nmrde.org), and clicking on < Shop> at the top of any page.
NOTE: this store will only be open through FRIDAY MAY 15.  So get your orders in NOW!



Our club is now a member of The Newark Partnership as non-profit status. Get an update on this week’s Zoom meeting.

Outstanding invoice?

Do not let your quarterly invoice go unpaid. Either get a check to treasurer Shawn or go to www.NMRDE.org and pay via credit card. Those last invoices were minimal, so let’s all pay up!

If you want to have your contribution made directly to The Rotary Foundation by credit card (weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annually) and not have it included on your quarterly club invoice, go to www.rotarydirect.org to sign up. Easy…..

Thought for the Week:

In the 60’s, people took acid to make the world look weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.
