As you know Sandy packed a one-two punch, but not a knockdown blow. As Rotarians we have been on the forefront supplying first response supplies and responding to the needs of our nieghbors. District 7470 has set up a 501c3 fund to help those who have suffered from Sandy and for the possible crisis in the future.

Sustaining District

Posted by Sophia Smith
This year our Governor, Jim Allison has challenged us to make our District a sustaining district.  What does that mean you ask?  As you know all Rotarians are expected to support the Foundation with at least a $100 donation per year.  He is asking us to increase it by $10.  What is the benefit?  Special recognition from Rotary International.

Remember as well that if you give annually $100 you will achieve your goal of becoming a sustaining member and a Paul Harris Fellow, a prestigious honor on our circle which is also know outside as well.  Need more specific details ask John Wilson he would be happy to enlighten you.

Group Study Exchange (Columbia) Visit

Posted by Sophia Smith

Our club hosted five mid-career professionals (and their leader) from Bogota, Columbia on April 19, anchored by the exchange visit at our luncheon. Showing off the best of the City, the group had a personalized tour of the Newark Museum by Ms. Sue Smith of the museum staff, and a Liz Del Tufo - led City Subway/walking tour of Pennsylvania Station, Branch Brook Park (during Cherry Blossom season) and the historic Forest Hill neighborhood. We stepped out the following evening to show off Ironbound dining at Mompou, after which our GSE member (2009, Finland) Nelson Rodriguez took the group out on the town for the rest of the night. New member Jeff Tilley provided a vocational visit at Hoffman LaRoche for the group's leader. Assistant Governor John Deermount (and his wife, Cindy), were valuable partners for the entire day. All in all, our club was an excellent ambassador for the City of Newark, and for Newark Rotary.
