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!

Hoboken Rotary Club raises $1,300.00 for Hoboken High School Marching Band

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!

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.

Hoboken Rotary History Remade

Posted by Gregory Visconti on Feb 19, 2013

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.

UN Day November 6, 2010

Rotary International

UN Day

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

Registration for the 20th Annual Hoboken Rotary Golf Outing - in partnership with the Hoboken Chamber of Commerce

Posted by Christopher Mackin CFP®

We're at it again with our 20th Annual Golf Outing and proud to continue our partnership with the Hoboken Chamber Commerce part of the Hudson County Chamber of Commerce

We had great feedback about our event last year at Essex County Country Club, so decided to keep the venue the same! We'll be having our special cocktail hour and dinner (in the newly remodeled Clubhouse) after the outing. You don't have an excuse not to join us, if you don't like golf, come to network with other professionals!

The Hoboken Rotary is a wonderful "service" organization that donates money to the education of our children. We give scholarships to high school seniors, books to the 1st and 3rd graders in Hoboken, send students to Rotary Youth Leadership Awards and have a "city-wide" Spelling Bee for all the 4th graders in our community. Those are just some of the wonderful things this organization participates in.

Our annual golf outing helps raise the funds for these educational programs. Please come out and support Hoboken's & the World's oldest service organization!

Posted by Gregory Visconti

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).

Hoboken Rotary is working with Party with Purpose, The City of Hoboken, and many other local organizations to provide assistance in the Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts.

The situation changes constantly so for the latest updates, visit the City of Hoboken website at: www.HobokenNJ.org and on Twitter at: https://twitter.com/cityofhoboken. Many of the local charities who provide after-school programming for some of our more disadvantaged kids have been flooded and will require extensive rehab. Your help and donations are much appreciated. 

Immediate Need: Physicians

We need a few physicians to donate their services to enter the high rises and attend to seniors and others who are in need of new/renewed prescriptions. Since the elevators are out, the residents are unable to go to the pharmacy themselves and most stores are still closed. If you are able to help, please contact us directly. 

To Donate Money: 

Hoboken Rotary  is now accepting monetary donations which will be put to immediate use to help those most in need. Any extra funds will be used for the ongoing recovery efforts. Visit this link to donate (please disable your pop up blocker)

To Volunteer: 

Visit City Hall located at 1st and Washington Street to sign up and get working. Volunteers are needed from 9:00 am- 7:00 pm. 

Hoboken Rotary in conjunction with our District 7490 and Rotary International we  will be organizing and coordinating our own volunteer efforts. Stay tuned. 

To Donate Goods:

The city is most in need of the following items: blankets, non-perishables such as shelf-stable milk like Parmalat, Canned goods. Diapers. Flashlights with batteries. Items may be delivered downtown at City Hall or uptown at Hoboken High School. The uptown location is easiest to drive up and drop off items.

At the District Staff meeting, Governor Emil Geering and PDG Joe Dino, Jr., Membership Chair, announced a new program for our district – 100 Members in 100 Days.  Our aim is to get the District to 1,400 members between December 15 and March 23.  The club that brings in the highest number of new members (no formulas here, just the highest number) will receive a $500 grant from DGE Bonnie Sirower during her year for one of that club’s programs, community or international.  In case of a tie, the club that brings in the highest amount of new members first will receive the award. Club Presidents can also win a Rotary tie, Rotary scarf or business card holder if they complete all five points of the Rotary membership star (see attached PDF).  Clubs will receive a gold star for each task completed:

1)    Hold a Meet and Greet:  We would like clubs to band together, and if possible, hold the Meet and Greet on February 23,  Rotary’s birthday.

RI's Strategic Plan

Posted by Ryan Mitchell

The RI Strategic Plan

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.

In 2009, the Board conducted an extensive review of the RI Strategic Plan. This review included surveying 14,000 Rotarians 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 and The Rotary Foundation. Read More

Posted by Joe Mindak
 Join us for our monthly night meeting the last Tuesday of every month.  This month will be 208 Jackson St, 6:45pm.

 Note from the host:

Dr. Laura and myself are running the 2010 NYC Marathon.  In an effort to minimize both of us bombarding everyone with emails for our support, we decided to have an evening meeting at my apartment:  The cooking efforts of Dr. Laura and myself are going to be supported by Hoboken’s Own, Skinny Chef written by Jennifer Iserloh.

   I am running to raise money for the New York City Rotary Club and their international efforts.  My link is http://www.active.com/donate/TeamNYRotary2010/RMitche261

  She is running for Team for Kids and if you would like to support her directly the link is


In an effort to plan accordingly for food, please let me know if you are planning on attending and if you are bringing any guests. Thank you from Dr. Laura and myself.
