HAPPY/SAD     August 21, 2014

Our Guests today were from the Brick Police Dept. Chief Berquist, Deputy Chief Riccio, Det Mike Bevaqua and Capt  Mazza

Jack…my usual dollar for being happy to here or anywhere today, an information of our guest speakers, Capt Mazza, was in Jack’s scout group years ago and would always call him Robert instead of Bob

Sheila….happy to see Brick Police here today and found a devil dog in the bottom of her purse

Elizabeth….happy to see our police here today and happy that Dog Fest is doing well in getting vendors and ads for the ad book but could still use more of both

Mark Balsam….happy to see police here today and for the spectacular summer weather we are having this year but afraid we may pay for this come winter

Gail…that police are here and agreed with Mark about weather

Lois….happy she found $20 yesterday

Evelyn….happy that her dining room table is free of all the backpacks

Glen Skullthorpe ( father-in-law to our new member Jeanette)…..had a great dinner this past Monday ( it was Gift of Life dinner) that we let him back again this week…everyone laughed and happy for    the good work the police do in this town and how they help in Lakewood.

Doug…happy for our guest speakers

Mark Colasurdo….my happy $10, happy to see Jody back, for our guests the Brick Police, that I only have 4 hours left for a possible call out for work, sad that water pipe in my brother Mike’s house     broke and he is selling football raffle tickets that support his son’s soccer team and Jack wanted to fine Marks table because it was all men and no women

Jody…..a dollar for Marks lawyer to help with the fine for the table, happy to see Brick police here today, had a great time in Europe and he is trying to take up photography ,bought a camera and on     his trip took 2800 pictures…..all laughed and he is happy to be back

Chief Berquist…a dollar for the best service group  and sad that he and  Deputy Chief Riccio have to leave early for another function

Rob….happy to be back

Jack….gave another dollar to all the Brick Police that came out for the Vest Fund Dance and glad they all posed for a picture for all to take which everyone could show the support Rotary received.

Joyce…happy to see police today and had a wonderful time in Washington last week and went to the best museum that is there with her grandson

Kurt…happy to see police and that so many of them showed their support for the Vest Fund  Dance and happy that he finally beat Joyce in the game “Words with Friends” because she always beats   him

Ginger…happy to have our police as speakers and she plays “Words with Friends” with Kurt but she almost always loses to Kurt, and just wanted to again mention her son Matt so that he would see   his name in the e-bulletin




















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.
