Christmas spirit was in fine form this Wednesday as Rotarians  (pictured above) once again joined Hillsborough Social Services staff on Wednesday for the Township’s annual holiday gift packing event, which provides Hillsborough families in need with clothing, toys and groceries.  The Rotarians also added gift cards to supplement the donated items.  


A lucky Hillsborough Elementary School third-grader displays one of the few “Golden Tickets” \randomly hidden in a few of the thesauruses given out by the Rotary Club of Hillsborough.  The ticket can be redeemed for a “Ride All Night” free pass for next year’s Rotary Fair!New Words Inspire Local Third-Graders.

Rotary Club of Hillsborough Rotarians join Hillsborough Elementary School third-graders proudly showing off 
their new thesauruses. The Rotary Club provides all Hillsborough and Manville third-graders with dictionaries or 
thesauruses each year.

Continuing one of its longest running annual traditions, the Rotary Club of Hillsborough distributed free thesauruses to Hillsborough and Manville third-graders this month, helping to ensure that these young  will have easy access to a tool that will serve them well throughout their academic careers.  

“The third graders and their teachers were genuinely excited and grateful to receive the thesauruses,” commented Ben Rozenblat, the Rotary Club of Hillsborough member responsible for organizing the project.  “Rotarians across the country also participate in this important project, helping third-graders to access and appreciate the rich vocabulary of the English language.”

Over 100 volunteers packed 500 boxes of treats and toiletries for our troops serving abroad this past Saturday at the 11th annual Operation Shoebox packing event hosted by the Rotary Club of Hillsborough at the Hillsborough YMCA.  "Serving abroad, particularly during the holidays, can leave our troops feeling a bit homesick " commented Rich Salem, member of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough who helped organize the event. "We hope that these packages, which contain familiar items from home, including letters and cards prepared by the Girl Scouts, help remind our troops that we are thinking of them and appreciate their sacrifice."
Rotarians Trish Marciano and Ken Genco were on hand at the recent Gift Of Life Gala to present the Rotary Club of Hillsborough’s donation in support of the organization’s international work treating congenital heart defects of children around the world. Over 13 million children are born each year with a congenital heart defect. 93 percent of these children are born in countries that cannot provide them with treatment. The Gift of Life organization provides lifesaving g surgery to a child every 99 minutes.
