The Union High School Interact Club was busy before life got crazy with COVID-19! Club members actively participated in community service events both in and out of town as well as fundraising activities throughout the academic year. With their fundraising proceeds, the club made a $500 donation to the PTA for UHS Senior Scholarships and a $2,000 donation to Gift of Life NJ! Our Union Rotary Club is very proud to sponsor such a great group of young individuals and we appreciate all of their efforts. Keep up the great work and we look forward to seeing all of your amazing accomplishments! 
President Rob O'Connell dropped off 100 N95 masks, 30 face shields, and 60 disposable gowns to Overlook Medical Center earlier today! Fellow Rotarian, Michael Atanasio who is the Director of Food & Nutrition, Parking and Patient Transportation at Overlook Medical Center, was there to accept the packages. A huge thank you to all of our healthcare workers for everything you are doing to get us through these difficult times. Another special thank you to Rob for delivering the supplies. We hope everyone and their families are staying safe and healthy!! ❤️

Am I at risk? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offered the following advice:
  • The majority of the American public is unlikely to be exposed to this virus, so generally speaking, the immediate health risk posed by COVID-19 is considered low.
  • People in communities with a rapidly growing number of confirmed COVID-19 cases are at an elevated—though still relatively low—risk of exposure.
  • Like other viruses, COVID-19 cannot target people from specific populations, ethnicities, or racial backgrounds; exposure to the disease itself is the greatest risk factor associated with contracting it. 
  • Even if contracted, symptoms range from very mild to mild for most.
What are the symptoms? 
Symptoms of coronavirus include:
  • Fever
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we ask that you contact your primary care physician for further advice.For a helpful set of recommendations on how to keep yourself and others protected from COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases year-round, follow this link

It's always a special meeting when a new member treats us with their classification speech. Yesterday Kylie Nemeth gave a wonderful speech followed up by a few questions from fellow members. Kylie is the Corporate Communications Coordinator at Hillmann Consulting, LLC. It was wonderful learning more about Kylie and we are very proud to have you as a member. So glad you came our way.

On behalf of our entire club, we would like to thank everyone who came to our Automobilia event Friday night! It was a spectacular evening and we all had a great time getting together to support two meaningful causes. All of the money raised will go to the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation who provides aid to Union County families faced with the crisis of pediatric cancer. A donation will also be made to Union High School football player Kofi Ansah, who is on the road to recovery from a spleen injury. We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of the restaurants and members that generously donated the delicious food we enjoyed during the event. Without all of you, none of this would have been possible! Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you all next year!!
Yesterday was a very special meeting for our club! We had the pleasure of spending some time with RotaryDistrict7475 Governor Ray Freaney who has been a Rotarian for 25 years. It was wonderful hearing about the impact Rotary has had on the communities around us and we can't wait to continue doing great things in the future!
Today we inducted Kylie Nemeth of Hillmann Consulting, LLC. We are so lucky that she joined our Rotary team! It is great to see our club continue to grow and inspire others to give back to the community!

"I am so excited to finally be a member of the Union Rotary Club! I am very proud to be a part of this amazing group of people and look forward to my future as a Rotarian!" -Kylie
