Our Fort Lee Rotary Club has a long tradition of supporting good causes. Every week we ask each other what we are happy about and start a pool of a few dollars called "Happy Dollars'. Freeholder and fellow Rotarian Joan Voss suggested that we donate the proceeds from our "Happy Dollars" to the Bergen County Project Literacy. After six months we collected a sizable sum and Joan delivered the check to their Executive Director, Chris Stout. Chris is also a Rotarian and fully understands the meaning of "Service Above Self"!
Our Fort Lee Rotary Club was so happy to establish our new meeting place at the Sedona Taphouse...
