Fun/Fund Raiser Definitely was FUN!

Good food, family and friends aong with fellowship and FUN! Our annual picnic had it all. The photo contest brought in $271 to be donated to winner Laurie Williams’ favorit charity, the Boys and Girls Club. Thank you, everyone who “voted” on the photo of reading the Rotary megazine in a most unusual place. Cute puppies will take first prize in any contest! But, Jerry, on a ladder? Really??? =)

Sign up for Community Day

We need your help. Community Day is Sunday, September 17 on The Green. Laurie Williams is chair and will be zasking for volunteers for setup, day hours, and breakdown. It’s a great chance for us to meet our community and let them know what Newark Morning Rotary is all about.

….and Dictionary Help

It’s that time when school starts that we distibute FREE student dictionaries to third graders in local schools. Laura DelPercio is heading up the project but we need voluinteer to distribute. Info will come at this week’s meeting.

Flags For Heroes underway

Sponsorships, both business and individual,  for our FFH program are n ow available. You can access the info, reserve a flag, and pay at our website nmrde.org. The goal this year is $25,000, only $5,000 more than last year.

Adopt A Park at the Reservoir
Under the direction of Adopt A Park Chair Doris Leach, we will be doing once-a-month trash cleanup at the reservoir on the third Saturday, 9:30 a.m., both up on the trail walk and in the children’s playground area. This is a simple service project. If you want to help, see Doris.
The first IMPACT club in our distict is now official! 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. Our first 8 members will be inducted at a social on Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 5 p.m. at Grain Exchange on STAR campus. Everyone is invited.
And support the IMPACT activity
If your schedule allows, register with Food Bank of Delaware at fdb.org to assist the IMPACT members in their first service project. Tuesday, Sept. 26, from 9 a.m. to noon.
100% Attendance
Only four members received acknowledgment for getting 100% attendance last Rotary year. Every member has the chance to get that recognition this year. Every time you attend a committee meeting, work on a service project, attend a Board meeting, or attend another club’s meeting, pleased let Secretary BJ know and she will give you credit. Let’s make this a 100% attendance year for the whole club!
