|Hoboken Rotary Club raises $1,300.00 for Hoboken High School Marching Band||Posted||on Apr 10, 2017||
The club was asked to help the Hoboken High School Rockin’ Redwings Marching Band raise money for their trip to Washington D.C. to participate in the National Memorial Day parade. The Rockin’ Redwings are one of four bands chosen from the state of New Jersey, and one of only 36 throughout the entire country. A happy hour fundraiser was held on March 15th, the day after a blizzard left our area covered in over two feet of snow.
Despite a lower turnout than expected, with the help of Hoboken Fire Department Locals 1076 and 1078 (respectively), Hoboken Police Department PBA Local #2, BCB Bank, and Investor's Bank, the club presented the band a check for $1,300.00! Dave Stasiak, the band’s Marching Director, has reported to us that with our donation, they have raised enough money to cover the cost of the trip for the approximate 50 students attending. We look forward to seeing the band march during the national television broadcast!
|Second trip to Boca Chica||Posted||on Apr 10, 2017||
In 2012, the Hoboken Rotary Club and the Hoboken Fire Department, co-sponsored a trip to Boca Chica, Dominican Republic to provide desperately needed firefighting equipment and training to the impoverished area's bravest. Five years later Ralph Eusebio, the founder of these efforts, is venturing back to the DR, this time to honor his father, Rafael, who passed away last year. Due to increased social media presence, a lot has changed in the past five years. There are now donations coming in from all over the country and multiple fire departments are participating.
On April 4th, the Rotary Clubs of Hoboken and Jersey City held a fundraiser for the Boca Chica efforts. T-shirts were created to commemorate the trip, with one shirt being donated to a firefighter in Boca Chica, for each one sold. Through the suggested donation and t-shirt sales, over $5000.00 was raised at the event, all of which will go directly to the Boca Chica FD, as well as departments in the surrounding area.

|Casino Night is Rotary!||Posted by Gregory Visconti||on May 04, 2013||
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.

|UN Day November 6, 2010||Posted||on Oct 03, 2010||
You are cordially invited to attend Rotary Day at the United Nations on Saturday,
6 November 2010, 8:00am Registration, 9:30am program begins, till 4:00pm.
Rotary's relationship with the United Nations dates back to 1945 when some 49 Rotary
members acted as delegates, advisors and consultants at the United Nations Charter
Conference. Today, Rotary holds the highest consultative status possible with the United
Nations as a non-governmental organization.
Rotary and the United Nations
Rotary and the United Nations have a long history of working together and sharing similar
visions for a more peaceful world.
In 1942, Rotary clubs from 21 nations organized a conference in London to develop a vision
for advancing education, science, and culture after World War II. That event was a precursor
to UNESCO. In 1945, 49 Rotarians went to San Francisco to help draft the UN Charter.
Rotary and the UN have been close partners ever since, a relationship that’s apparent
through PolioPlus and work with UN agencies.
“The invitation to Rotary International to participate in the United Nations Conference as
consultant to the United States delegation was not merely a gesture of good will and respect
toward a great organization. It was a simple recognition of the practical part Rotary’s
members have played and will continue to play in the development of understanding among
nations. The representatives of Rotary were needed at San Francisco and, as you well know,
they made a considerable contribution to the Charter itself, and particularly to the framing of
provisions for the Economic and Social Council.”
Rotary currently holds the highest consultative status offered to a nongovernmental
organization by the UN’s Economic and Social Council, which oversees many specialized UN
agencies. Rotary maintains and furthers its relationship with a number of UN bodies,
programs, commissions, and agencies through its representative network . This network
consists of RI representatives to the United Nations and other organizations.

Each year at Rotary UN Day, more than 1300 Rotarians including many Rotary International
Directors, Foundation Trustees, past Senior Leaders, and guests come together at UN
Headquarters in New York. The program is designed to inspire and educate all participants
as well as provide insight into the relationship between Rotary and the United Nations. In the
past, the day has been very successful and has sold out.
The day will begin at 9:30am and conclude by 4:00pm. Lunch will be in the UN Cafeteria,
over looking the East River at 1:00pm.
Rotary Day at the United Nations also includes a special program for youth interested in
humanitarian service. Youth will have the opportunity to hear about a model UN program, the
Shelter Box project, some projects that Interact Clubs are working on, and an overview of the
UN and much more. The program begins at 9:30am and concludes at 12:30 followed by
lunch. Participants are welcome to join the adult program after lunch

I n 2001-02, as Rotary International entered its second century of service, it began developing a strategic plan to guide the organization. The plan has been reviewed and updated periodically since.

worldwide about the organization’s priorities, conducting focus groups
to assess Rotary’s image in different countries, and analyzing other
data and research. The revised plan, effective 1 July 2010, reflects the
results of this research and also unifies the strategic direction of RI
