HAPPY/SAD     July 24, 2014





Jack….happy  because at my age I’m still coming here to lunch,  I always set a quota for myself to sell 100 tickets to the Vest Fund Dance and this year I accomplished  it and sold 110 tickets

Gail…happy my friends Elizabeth and Joyce are back from  their trip and happy to be here.

Elizabeth….happy for my nice trip to San Francisco and will also be leaving for Florida on Saturday to see my daughter

Mark….happy  to see Helen today, and looking forward to Vest Fund Dance

Mike Sr…..happy for our guest speaker, happy to be here, happy to see Helen,  happy he does not need to sit at the head table anymore where the officers sit but no offense to officers.....LOL

Doug….happy for our guest speaker and  for Rotary

Helen….late dollar, no pin  “I miss Rotary” but chemo has done a number on my heart so I am moving a little slow these days 

Joyce….happy  for her  trip to San Francisco but also happy to be home,  asking for prayers for her children’s  father, her ex, because he has  lung cancer and  her friends son who was paralyzed from the neck down is getting movement  in his arms and the doctors didn’t expect this to happen  so hoping this is a good sign

Kurt.,,.happy that  today is his in-laws 60th Anniversary,  Tuesday was his 23rd year in practice, happy his parents are coming  to Jersey and the family will be having a reunion in Denville

Ginger….even though there were no potatoes, again, the pasta was pretty good today, and all the best to Cathy L  because her mom is in the hospital and they don’t know what is wrong  yet but her husband Barry is doing a little better and sympathy to Mike Jr’s wife Jen because she lost her uncle to a stroke.


Our guest speaker was Lynn  Snyder  from  Common Ground  an  organization/support group for children from 6-18 who lost a parent or sibling



Guiding Principles
by Silvestri, Dina

The Object of Rotary

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

  • FIRST. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • SECOND. High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  • THIRD. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
  • FOURTH. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

Avenues of Service

Based on the Object of Rotary, the Avenues of Service are Rotary's philosophical cornerstone and the foundation on which club activity is based:

  • Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club.
  • Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards.
  • Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community.
  • International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.
  • New Generations Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities, service projects, and exchange programs.

The Four-Way Test

The test, which has been translated into more than 100 languages, asks the following questions:

Of the things we think, say or do

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?


The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.
