From our President
Last Friday, a group of volunteers from our club dropped off close to 100 books for the GE Wilson Elementary
School in Hamilton. This is the first of two bundles that are to be delivered. The second delivery – very likely in mid-March, will be aligned with kicking-off a Read Along program, where Rotarians will be scheduled to visit the school while a class room is in session, and read to the children, a book from the new collection. This is powerful in so many ways – for the social emotional learning and for the children to get excited and curious to read these books.
This week – we honor our students of the month.
Our annual pajama drive to benefit Lala & Mimi’s has begun!!
A link to the scholarship form is now available on our website at https://rhrotary.org/scholarships/.
Please pass the word around so students and parents may avail of this once a year opportunity. We are looking for a volunteer to chair the scholarship committee.
Our featured speaker this week is Scott Rudder, partner at Burton Trent Public Affairs and founder of New Jersey CannaBusiness Association – his topic – recreational cannabis in New Jersey.
Look forward to seeing you on January 20, 2023 at our weekly scheduled location:
PJ’s Pancake House and Tavern
17 Main St, Robbinsville Township, NJ 08691
