The NEW JERSEY VOCATIONAL ASSEMBLY honoring our own DENISE CURRENT will be held on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at the Pines Manor in Edison, NJ, from 3-8pm.  We urge all Newton Rotarians to attend this wonderful event, and to make it more fun we are offering a ride to the event via the Current Adventure Bus.  We will leave from the Park and Ride lot behind Shop Rite in Newton at 2 pm. 
 
Seating on the bus is limited to the first 21 people who sign up and pay. The cost for the event is $55 per ticket for the event + $20 for the bus for a total of $75.00. Money should be brought to the meeting on September 21, 2016, and checks should be made payable to NEWTON ROTARY CLUB. This is the only day money will be collected, so if you plan to go on the trip but cannot be at the meeting please contact Barbara Miller (barbaram41@earthlink.net or 973-903-3845) so that a seat can be reserved for you.   All Newton Rotarians planning to attend will be registered for the Assembly by Barbara so that we can sit together at the event. 
 
This is a GREAT HONOR FOR DENISE and we should all plan to support her. Please put this on your calendar and try to attend!  
Invitation is open to all members. However, if you wish to attend, you must RSVP.

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.

Rotary International News
Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
The Rotarian Conversation with Ban Ki-moon
One of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s earliest memories is of fleeing with his family into the mountains during the Korean War, his village burning behind him. His father and grandfather had to forage for food in the woods; his mother gave birth to his siblings away from anything remotely resembling a health facility. “I have known hunger,” he says. “I have known war, and I have known what it means to be forced to flee conflict.” The soldiers who came to their rescue were flying the blue flag of the United Nations. The UN provided them with food and their schools with books....
Culture: Life in the bike lane
Like a lot of us, I spent much of my childhood riding bikes, but fell out of the habit for a while. Forty years. Then my wife and I moved to New York, where cyclists risk their necks in a daily Thunderdome of cabs, police cars, firetrucks, double-decker buses, messengers on motorbikes, and delivery trucks backing around corners at 20 miles an hour. Not for me! At least not until my 50th birthday, when my metabolic furnace flamed out. Calories started going directly from beer bottle to beer belly. It was time to start exercising. Either that or give up Samuel Adams, and I couldn’t do that to...
