Board Actions from Oct. 31:

The Board was not able to act on many items because of a lack of quorum. If you are a Board member but not able to attend a scheduled meeting, please give your report to President Evelyn so we can conduct business.The next Board of Directors meeting is Nov. 21.

Does anyone know Pooja Rohit or administrators at Homestead Senior Care? We received $25 from each of them via our website (one in September and one in October)  but we do not know why.If you know these contacts, please let treasurer Shawn know.


Silent auction proceeds to The Rotary Foundation

With a variety of items to choose from in the Silent Auction ( cakes, jewelry, gift cards, party baskets, homemade crafted items, tickets, and much more!), very generous Happy Dollars, and additional contributions, in a day dedicated to raising money for PolioPlus, our club raised more than $2,700. Many thanks to everyone who participated.

If you were not there that week, and you want to make a contribution to PolioPlus in your name, please let Robin know ASAP. Let’s push the $3,000 mark!!!




Flags For Heroes will be installed on the City of Newark Administrative building lawn THIS THURSDAY at 10 a.m. We need help with drilling the holes to install the pole holders. Please  notify Paul Keely if you can help. We should be done withing 2 hours.


 Can you read?

The Newark Children’s Day Nursery, located only a mile from the Courtyard on Barksdale Road, is in need of readers to the children. Easy — go to Read Aloud Delaware, signup as a reader, designate Newark Day Nursery as your preferred location. Then you can make arrangements that suit your schedule.


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.


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…..
