Great Day & Fun for all
For 38 years Mendham Rotary Club has had a
Antiques Show at the West Morris Mendham High
School in Mendham, NJ. Due to the Covid pandemic, our
last two years' show had to be cancelled.  Funds raised at
this show were used for many project among which
were scholarships for Mendham High School students.
Since we could not have this fundraiser, Mendham
Rotary solicited local businesses who had supported the show
in the past for funds to support these scholarships this year.
  We would like to thank all of them for their loyalty and willing
to support us during this pandemic.
