Weekly Update


Fellow Rotarians,

I look forward to seeing you at The Blend on Friday morning.  The centerpiece of the meeting will be the granting of the George Prutky Award to The Father Center.  I have also invited Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri to attend so we may present him with the flags that he sponsored last fall in our Flags for Heroes campaign.
Dollars for Scholars.  We just completed our eleventh of twelve weekly Tuesday night socials at Killarney’s.  Please join us as there is only one to go!!  We usually convene at approximately 5:30 PM.

As previously reported, the Hamilton Township Economic Development Commission will be recognizing both our club and the Miracle League of Mercer County at its annual dinner in the fall.  We will talk about the announcement of this award at this week’s meeting.
Installation and Awards Night will take place on Thursday, June 23, 2022 at Tessara’s Restaurant.  Janice has circulated the invitations.  Kalpana and I are hoping you attend.
We will provide details of an international endeavor that our foundation committee has been studying throughout this Rotary year.  I am pleased to report that we are about to be part of a global initiative for the first time in quite some time.

Our last formal event of the Rotary Year is fittingly End Hunger 3.6.  The district sponsored Mercer County event has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 25, 2022 from 7:300 AM to 12:00 Noon.  This will take place at the Boys and Girls Club in Lawrence. There will be two shifts consisting of 7:30 AM to 10:00 AM (set-up) and 10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon (distribution). Sign up using the link:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0e4ca4ad2ba1fa7-endhunger

Thank you, and I’ll see you Friday morning.
