The Next Chapter...


Into the fifth month of my Rotary Year, as I continue my club visits, I am amazed at all the wonderful projects our clubs are involved with.  Whether community related, district related or international, each club can be proud of their accomplishments as part of the 1.2 million Rotarians around the world.


This Rotary Year will also be highlighted by almost all Rotarians, Rotary Clubs, and Rotary Districts planning and celebrating the 100th Anniversary of our Rotary Foundation.  For us November will be the celebration month, which also is Foundation month.  Excitement is brimming with all the preparation the President/Foundation Ball committee is involved in.  Preparation is nonstop to make this just super.


I am asking all clubs to support their Presidents and come and recognize their dedication and service to Clubs and Rotary.   As last year we will have the same R & B group for our enjoyment and dancing.  Be sure to bring your dancing feet along.  


Look forward to some special highlights during the celebration commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Rotary Foundation. For additional information regarding registration for the Ball you may contact Ken Nickel of the Rockaway Club at 


For questions regarding the ad journal our contact person is MaryAnn Seeko of the Walkill Valley Club at


Of course you can always contact me for any questions or concerns either by email at or by phone 201-602-8621.


Yours in Rotary,
