$10,000+ Raised for Hurricane Dorian Relief
Whether it is for the Hoboken Community or for those connected to 07030, getting things done is easy for The Hoboken Rotary Club!
About two months ago, we were asked by Debbie McDonald to help raise funds for Hurricane Dorian victims.  The back story is simple, Debbie who once lived in The Bahamas, and is not a Hoboken Resident needed help.  She came to Rotary as a reliable Partner in getting things done.  Without hesitation, Rich Marsh, stepped up to assist Debbie in organizing the event under The Hoboken Rotary Banner.
 
 
On Saturday November, Debbie organized a Caribbean themed dinner-dance to raise funds for Rotary to send to The Abacos.  The dinner was held at The Hoboken Elks Lodge and was attended by over 125 supporters!  In the end donations of over $10,500 were raised at the event and will be sent via Rotary to The Rotary Club of Abacos Bahamas.
 
In attendance were Jaclyn, Greg, and other Rotarian invitees.  Thanks to all who donated and  made this happen.

2019-2020 Hoboken Rotary Avenues of Service
We are about to have our first Board Meeting this year and are seeking the input of all Member in creating an Agenda for Club Service programs.  It is my foremost goal that OUR Club perform service projects that OUR Members have collectively chosen to support.
 
As a Rotarian you can dream big and make it happen.  It is my goal as President to represent ALL members in choosing projects that Members want to do and will support with the passion of Service Aboove Self.
 

Five Avenues of Service
RI Logo

The Rotary Club of New York is organized into five Divisions to carry out the five Avenues of Service which form the foundation of Rotary's work, ensuring focus on Service Above Self and that service efforts are balanced and advance all aspects of the Object of Rotary to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise.

Club Service -- the First Avenue of Service

We are a volunteer organization which requires everyone's help to make the club operate. Everyone gets a chance to pitch in at various times throughout the year. Club Service includes tasks like collecting money at the door, giving the invocation, leading the opening song, greeting arriving members and the like.

Vocational Service -- the Second Avenue of Service

As business leaders, Rotarians share their skills and expertise through Vocational Service. Your Vocational Service efforts can play a vital role in improving the quality of life for those hardworking members of the community who need direction and expertise. By participating in any of a number of Vocational Service activities - mentoring, career days, vocational awards, business assistance, or even talking about your job at a club meeting - you can turn your experience into an invaluable resource for others.

Community Service -- the Third Avenue of Service

Many members focus on Community Service projects. Community Service can be likened to "rolling up our sleeves" to serve our community. Our projects include helping with an annual Christmas Party for underprivileged children, being servers at a Veteran's Thanksgiving dinner, participating in New York Cares, supporting a Boy Scout program with short-term mentoring of an Explorer Scout, participating in various scholarship programs or one of many others projects.

International Service -- the Fourth Avenue of Service

International Service is for the advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service, to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace. The International Service Division has many projects supporting these goals, and invites and encourages participation in this vitally important work. The Rotary Club of New York and the United Nations have more in common than that both are in New York City -- Sylvan Barnet, a member of The Rotary Club of New York, is the longest-serving representative of Rotary International to the UN, and the International Service Division hosts monthly Rotary UN breakfasts which provide an opportunity to stay informed regarding the work of the United Nations, world politics, peace, and other international topics, and to exchange views on related topics with UN officials, representatives of UN member states, and other invited organizations.

New Generations Service -- the Fifth Avenue of Service

New Generations Service, the newest Avenue of Service, created by the 2010 Council on Legislation of Rotary International on April 28, 2010, recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults involved in leadership development activities, community and international service projects, and exchange programs that enrich and foster world peace and cultural understanding. The Rotary Club of New York is committed to involving youth and young adults in all its activities, including vocational, community, and international service projects, and to providing programs and resources that support youth and young adults, and is committed to coordinating closely with Interact Clubs and Rotaract Clubs.

Getting Rotarized
One of the greatest things about Rotary is the level of impact we can have if and when, we choose to get Rotarized. 
 
Getting Rotarized occurs in most Rotarians and can be described as the moment you realize the impact you can have in the Community,,World and Club when you take action in Our Club.  It is the time of year to think about the Service Projects YOU want to be involved in.
 
Ask yourself what you would like our Club to Support and email your ideas to any Board Member to be considered.  When you do so please be detailed in what you want to do, what it means to you and why it is important for you.
 
Get Rotarizrd!
At a recent lunch meeting we discussed projects for the 2019-20 Club year and the impact we can make in areas we care deeply about.   A fellow Rotarian shared a photo of her home-town Clubs project, which sparked  the discussion and became the catalyst for a potential new idea for us all to give back to our home town, wherever it may be.  We are therefore asking you take some time to reflect on YOUR HOME TOWN, and the impact it has had on your life and what you can now do to give back in Rotary Service style.
 
We are asking you write up an email to submit a program for the Board for review and consider to implement this Rotary year.  An example could be  partnering with your Home Town Rotary Club to assist or request assistance in finding out what may be needed, assistance funding  and implementing your project.   So think what it would mean to The Club, Your community to DREAM BIG and get or stayed Rotarized.!

Gift Of Life Traditions
Today we met for Lunch and all were introduced to Mitchell and Marisa Cerillo, the Recipient and her Mother of our 2019 GOL. 
 
In addition to happily reporting Mitchell is doing well and will soon be cleared to return to The Phillipines to resume her life!
 
Thanks to All whom have made this possible.  Our 2nd Annual Gift Of Life Dinner is being organized and scheduled for December 5th at The Antique Loft.
The topic was informally discussed and then seemed to have a life of its own.  A second Annual GOL Dinner has been tentatively scheduled for December 5th 2019.  As the discussion developed, Dianna Vecchio was asked to and agreed to be Chairperson of the event.  If you want to assist Dianna, please contact her
 
We intend on Honoring a Hoboken Community Member who exemplifies the Rotary ideal of Service Above Self.  The Club and Board will be selecting this years Honoree in the months to come and welcome your nominations for this Honor.  If you have someone in mind I ask that you send a short email with the persons name and a reason why they should be honored with this award.
 
Thank you Dianna for exemplifying the meaning of Service Above Self. I know you will have the full support of The Club Membership in making this years event even more special and successful than last!

Rotary District 7490
You may or may not know but The Rotary Club of Hoboken is part of a District(7490) which is comprised of The Rotary Clubs located in Bergen, Hudson and Passaic Counties.  This is a very important part of Rotary for many reasons.  Not only does a part of your dues go to fund The District but the District issues Grants to Clubs from various Foundations it operates.
As a Member of Our Club, you gain the benefit of having relationships within Our Club.  As a Member of Club, you also have the benefit of meeting Rotarians throughout the District, within which you can meet Leaders within the District Clubs.  I urge you to take a step outside of Hoboken and visit another Club when you are on the road or want to get to know another community for whatever your reason.
 
Over the last few months, Grant applications have been distributed via email and attached to The Rotaboken.  If you have a project you would like The Club to sponsor and fund, we have two choices to raise the funds for your project.  The first, is to operate a fund raising event within the Club and the second is to apply for a Grant to fund it.  
 
If you would like to apply for a District Grant to fund your Service project, the application is still available and must be submitted by September 30th,  2019.  Send an email to president@hobokenrotary.org and an application can be sent to you.
