On Wednesday night June 29th at LaStrada, Deputy Mayor Jaki Albrecht was sworn in as Roxbury Rotary Clubs next President for the 2022-2023 Rotary year.
Yesterday at the Our Rotary meeting at the Black River Barn, Mia from Donabagels Bagel and Donut Cafe in Hopatcong spoke to us about her business and brought us tasty samples to try. They were amazing. Thank you Mia.
Last night at the Park Avenue Club in Florham Park, three of our Rotarians, Matt Calavano, Sam Maddali and Scott and Sandy Fullerton were honored for their incredible giving to the Rotary Foundation. We are so very proud of everything you do for Rotary.
What a great day doing our third annual free rock painting kindness event. Hundreds of people came out to paint rocks with messages of kindness that will be spread to places in our community and beyond. What a great community we live in.
Last night our Rotary Club was able to give out five $1,000 scholarships to Roxbury HS seniors Jackie Grady, Julia Mayor, Kaylee Chau, Kryssa Bijelic and Caitlin Caccavella. These young ladies are rock stars and so deserving of this money for time they spent volunteering to help our community. We would also like to thank the Rotary Club of Lake Hopatcong for being at our senior awards and handing out six $1,000 scholarships to deserving seniors.
We hope to see many of you next Saturday at the 3rd annual Kindness Rock Painting event! Spend an hour with friends and neighbors paying it forward ❤️
Today at LaStrada all three levels of Rotary met for lunch to end our amazing year. The 4th graders from Franklin Early Act came and ran the first part of our meeting and they were amazing. Next we heard from the HS Interact officers about everything they accomplished this year. We also have Early Act Clubs In the three otherElementary schools In town. Your children are amazing human beings and we are better as a community because of them.
Thank you Rotary for my Interact Club experience:
This is my last post for Rotary and as the Vice President of Interact Club. Being in this club has taught me the importance of helping others and being kind. Over the last four years, I have been able to become closer to my community. I am forever grateful for the opportunities that this club and its members have granted me.
What a day! Today we were able to raise $20,000 for Kayla and none of this would’ve been possible without the support from the community. We want to thank every single person who helped organize this event or participated. We also want to thank Fullerton grounds maintenance, PJ’s auto body, Kingstown/truck stop, Tom Smith & Family, Oster Investigation, Jersey Mikes, Cliffs Ice Cream, the Roxbury Rotary Club, and Valley Pharmacy & Surgical Supply Center for sponsoring this years color run.
As the last Interact Club event before the color run we cleaned up all the trash on Emmans road. Thank you to everyone who helped out and made a huge difference!
