So thankful to have special guest Mitchell Paterson, Allendale Saddle River Rotary sponsored RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) recipient at our meeting this evening to speak about his life changing experience at this summer's camp! We also welcomed RYLA committee member Sonia Roman who provided us with more insight about the importance and mission of the annual camp. Thank you Mitchell and Sonia for joining us and we are so happy to have had the opportunity to support RYLA this year.

Congratulations to Jenna Squasoni of Allendale and Aaron Baker of Waldwick, recipients of the 2019 Allendale/Saddle River Rotary Foundation Scholarships! The award is given by the Allendale/Saddle River Rotary Foundation to high school senior attending a four-year university and involved in a variety of extracurricular activities or part-time work. The student exemplifies the Rotary motto "Service above self."

Wonderful presentation from Bob Klingen on the Gift of Life Foundation and the impact the GOL has not only on the children saved but their families. Thank you, Bergen Highlands Rotary for partnering with the Allendale Saddle River Rotary to sponsor a child to receive a life saving operation.
Please join us for a wine tasting! Proceeds with help with our charitable efforts, specifically our Gift of Life International sponsorships, in addition to relief from the recent fires in California.
We were thrilled to have our most recent Gift of Life International child Eira and her mother as guests at this morning's Allendale/Saddle River Rotary meeting. Through the generosity of many, in addition to our fundraising dinners each year, we continue to help children with life savings surgeries. Thank you to our generous communities for their continued support.
 
This morning, we were pleased to present a check to United Way for veteran housing in Allendale!
 
 
First, our thoughts and prayers are with the Kunisch family. Second, we heard from a wonderful presenter today, Kim Mount from Community Meals A.K.A. Meals on Wheels. We had no idea of all they do for the people of our community who need meals, but can't take care of it themselves.
 
Amazing morning hearing about little Jasmine's journey as a Gift of Life child. What a blessing! Grateful also for the Klingen family who hosted Jasmine and her mom during her pre- and post-operation. This is why we do what we do as Rotarians! Service above self!
 

Why are we excited for these pictures?!?! Because Sabina Sullivan was awarded the Walter D. Head Scholarship and our club was her sponsor! Pretty proud moment! Congrats Sabina!

We love to have fun! Congrats to our outgoing board. Thanks for your hard work this year. Let's keep the ball rolling! Also, many thanks especially to June Stahl, our immediate past president, for all of her work this year, highlighting her work on our wine event...wow! You rock!
 

Congrats to our 2016 Scholarship Winners! Great to see these young students excel, not only in their academics, but in serving their local community! Keep up the good work!

 

Thanks to Kerin Briscese, owner of Haute Fitness Health, for joining us on Wednesday and challenging us to start with attainable and sustainable goals to getting fit!
 
Here are some other great presenters we've had over the past month.  Below is Rob Parker, Lead Pastor of The Plant Church in Mahwah, sharing about Life Planning and giving us a tool with going after the life we desire.  We also had James Cole share with us about his efforts, along with other Rotarians, to get the Malawi Orthopedic Program off the ground that now trains and deploys orthopedic clinical officers since 1985 in rural district hospitals.
 
 
We thank Loren Gelberg-Off, CEO and Founder of Well Within, for her words of wisdom on dealing with the everyday stresses we face!  Great presentation!
 
Great to have Dr. Jyoti Mathews, board certified family physician and owner of Eden Medical, again with us!  She did a great job clearing up misconceptions in health that we all share.  
 
Great, inspirational morning hearing from Bruce Moehler of Eversight New Jersey and all they're doing to make vision a reality to people. Wonderful stories of those finding hope through others donations.
 
It was a smaller morning with many of our members dealing with family circumstances--our thoughts and prayers are with you all! It was still an impactful morning hearing from former NY Jet, Bruce Harper of Heroes and Cool Kids! Thank you Bruce!
 
Great to have fellow Rotarian, Dan Shiver, with us this morning and hear about how his idea of giving at risk students, who are in the criminal justice system, exposure to career opportunities, has become a reality.  Thanks Dan!
 
Wonderful presentation today by Sarah Melone, co-founder of MarbleJam Kids!  Amazing to hear how they mold and bend to what the child needs instead of pushing for the child to change--great to have Sarah today!
