♦A few months ago, the Rockaway Rotary Club announced its Turkey Trot Virtual 5K which was run from November 27th through December 5th. More than $2,000 was raised with proceeds to go to the Rockaway Food Closet and Table of Hope in Morristown. We wish to thank our sponsors: Fulton Bank, Morris Industries, Diamond Freight Distribution, D & M Auto Body, D & M Auto Repair, Tri-State POS Solutions, Rockaway Borough PBA Local 268, CANUSA Construction, Glen Franchak, and Missy's Main Street Cafe for their generous support. As always, we encourage you to support our local businesses.
 
♦On January 1st, the drawing was held for our 50/50 Raffle.  A total of 535 tickets were sold for $5,350. Top prize was won by Rachel DeCarlo ($1,337.50), second was won by Dennis Bloshuk ($802.50) and third was won by Mary Berry ($535). Thank you to all who helped sell the tickets and to those who supported our club by purchasing them.
Again this year, we have received raffle tickets for the annual Gift of Life Super Bowl Raffle.  Because of COVID, this year it is a "Super Bowl in Your Living Room" with A Samsung 65" Flat Screen Smart TV, Sound System, catering package for your Super Bowl party and official NFL Team Wear.
     Tickets are $20 each and the drawing will be held January 29, 2021.  Please contact George Berry if you are interested in purchasing a ticket or two.
     For those of you who might not know, since the beginning in 1985, Gift of Life New Jersey has provided life-saving treatment for over 2,000 children with congenital heart disease from countries throughout the world where such advanced medical care is not available.
Thank you to all who supported our annual Turkey Drive for the Rockaway Food Closet.  We collected 39 turkeys, lots of non-perishable goods and over $300 in cash and gift cards. Thank you to all the Rotarians and Scouts who helped with this very important project.  You made a difference in the lives of our neighbors.
 
At our Breakfast Meeting on October 7th, Rockaway Rotarians and friends prepared 336 dictionaries for our annual distribution to all the third-graders in Rockaway Borough and Township schools as a part of Rotary's ongoing support of education at home and abroad.
