It was great to see so many Rotarians and our Better Halves at the event. The Elks Lodge gave us plenty of room for the 150 plus guests. The bounty of food and drinks were only matched by the laughs and smiles we shared.
We squeeze that hour of time into our busy lives each week to chat about an idea to raise funds, and that special Rotarian grabs the chance to give and makes the effort to change the World for the better. And so it was that Joe Mindak, made Casino Night an event that has taken on a life of its own. So let us all thank Joe and all that have donated the time, food, drinks and funds to contribute to the corpus of The Hoboken Rotary Foundation.
If you participate in Our Events you know the power and benefit of giving in service. I call it getting Rotarized. If you do not then you are missing out on a chance to get something from Our Club that you will rarely find in life. Try it soon as our events are winding down for this year.
No not Verrazano.
The winner of the Spelling Bee is ...

One of the core focus of Rotary International and our Club is to serve the youth in our community. IN order to provide this service RI requires everyone involved to receive proper training to ensure the safety of the Youth and Membership.
We will be performing this training at the Tuesday Meeting March 26th, 2012 so I recommend you attend or you will have to complete this training in order to participate in Youth Programs. You can download the Power Point presentation by using the following RI link.
If you cannot download this please send an email to me at email@example.com and I will forward the presentation to you.
Thank you for your time and keeping Service Above Self as a core value in your life.
Thank you all for your cooperation and attendance at our last meeting. While attendance was a huge improvement, we now stand at 40 active members; so I expect 25 or more each week. Attendance is a requirement NOT a choice in maintaining you membership requirements. Dues is the other. So please pay your dues and attend so as not to jeopardize your membership!
We will be at Biggies Restaurant on 34 Newark St Hoboken NJ each Tuesday at 12:15pm. This week we will hear from Ethan Chazin, a newer Member, who is sure to restart your business with his Coaching ideas!
Parking is a premium in Hoboken so give yourself a 15 minute window and you should find something on the street!
The Club and Foundation will be having a joint meeting this month on March 20th at the Hoboken Business Center or at Biggies (time to be announced).
For many years Our Club has met various local establishments seeking a suitable and comfortable place to do the good deeds of Rotary. Like every other Club in the world, we meet to share our vocational expertise and experience, in the name of service above self.
Beginning March 2013, we will be returning to a long time home, all be it, remodeled "Clam Broth House". While it is now known as Biggie's, at 42 Newark Street between River and Hudson Sts. Hoboken NJ it was the place I first attended Rotary in the 1980's. The new proprietors are long time Hobokenites that share the pride of calling Hoboken home.
We will return to lunch meetings beginning March 2013, and thank the Brass Rail for having us for such a long time.
Let's enjoy the Fellowship and hospitality of our new hosts and support them each week for years to come.

Due to the recent storm, we postponed our 4th Annual Spelling Bee. The committee is working closing with the schools to first ensure that the kids are effectively transitioned back into their routine.
Secondly we are seeking out their needs and how we can assist them, getting back up and running smoother and faster. Thirdly we will work with them to determine when a new date and location can be set. If you have any questions or can assist in the preparations please contact the committee chair, Lisa Russo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
