Established in 1923, The Newton Rotary Club is a service organization that brings together business and professional men and women to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.  Our members are volunteers who work locally, domestically and internationally to improve the lives of others.  Through our hard work and dedication Newton Rotary has supported dozens of organizations including The Newton Memorial Hospital, Sussex County Community College, United Way, American Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity, as well as provide scholarships to local high school students.

Additionally, Newton Rotary has been involved in numerous international projects including Polio +, an undertaking designed to eradicate Polio worldwide; The Gift of Life, a program which provides medical assistance to seriously ill children.  As a club the Newton Rotary has also donated buses, clothing and medical supplies to schools and orphanages in Mexico.

If you are interested in finding out more about Newton Rotary we invite you to join us for lunch at the Lafayette House in Lafayette New Jersey.  Please contact John Frank at jvfrank@embarqmail.com for more information.

 

EREY-EN-cEvery Rotarian Every Year

“Every Rotarian Every Year” is a Rotary Foundation program that asks every Rotarian to contribute something to TRF each Rotary Year.

When you contribute US$100.00 or more each year to the Foundation’s Annual Programs Fund (APF), you become a Foundation “SUSTAINING MEMBER.” Your generosity enables Rotarians to work together across oceans and vast terrain to find innovative solutions to complex problems that plague villagers in remote areas, as well as city dwellers.

US$100.00 can buy tuition and books for one year of school for two children in Kenya. US$500.00 can buy a ten-month food supply for a child in Guatemala. US$1,000.00 can provide clean drinking water for over 300 people in India.

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
Out of tragedy, some people create something good
From the August 2015 issue of The Rotarian What's the worst that could happen? For most of us, that's a simple question. We might be late for a train. We might miss out on a promotion, or even lose a job. But for some, the worst is unimaginably worse. An unfortunate few endure what Ani Kalayjian calls "true trauma." War. Fire. Flood. A daughter disappears. A son contracts Ebola. When faced with such disasters, "people feel anger, guilt, sadness, frustration – feelings that can poison the body and spirit," says Kalayjian, a trauma specialist at Columbia University. "Trauma survivors may think...
San Diego students tackle vaccine controversy
From the August 2015 issue of The Rotarian A group of teenage journalism students in suburban San Diego were in the early stages of a new project – an educational film funded by a Rotary grant – when their teacher's phone rang. A prominent blogger had caught wind of what they were doing from a local news story, and wasn't pleased. The fledgling film came under fire almost overnight as ripples of protest spread through the blogosphere. With calls pouring in before shooting had even begun, the advisers considered halting the project, questioning whether it would be worth the controversy...
