It's almost time!  Santa's helpers are very busy preparing for the exciting tradition of children visiting Santa inside Santa's House.  Yes, that is correct.  We are so happy to return to indoor visits with Santa.  The characters are in place, Santa's House and Workshop are dusted off and all spruced up and soon the lights will be on the tree.  The work continues but we'll be ready for the official tree lighting ceremony on November 26th at 6:00 p.m.  Bring your holiday spirit and join us for this annual event.  
Santa will welcome visitors on December 3rd and 4th from 1-6pm, and December 10th - 23rd with weekday visits from 4-6pm and weekend visits from 1-6pm. (More photos to follow.)
Please, if you are able to donate, go on line to the site indicated below to schedule your appointment.  Time slots are filling up quickly.  This Blood Drive is sponsored by Denville Rotary and Denville Sunrise Rotary.
George Gregor visited us at our Thursday luncheon meeting and gave us some very interesting facts and fun stories about "America's favorite Pastime."  George is the author of seven books all about baseball and is currently working on his eighth.  He was very gracious in presenting each of us with an autographed copy of "A Ride on the Mendoza Line."  Other books authored by George are Those Amazin' Mets...From Worse to Verse, The Chicago Cubs...and Moe, The BoSox of Beantown, From Coogan's Bluff to Baseball by the Bay...They Were Giants! and DID YOU KNOW: The Firsts and Onlys and Assorted Factoids.
 
As tradition holds, evey September Denville Rotary and Sunrise Denville Rotary join together to celebrate "Dictionary Day" by visiting our local elementary schools and distributing dictionaries to every third grader.  It's a fun and very uplifting day seeing the smiles, the enthusiasm and participation of the students celebrating "words".  Thank you to third grade teachers Ms.Cucci of Riverview School and Ms. Thomas of Lakeview School.
 
Denville Rotary takes time out for an evening of music, food and fun at an outdoor concert at the Morris Museum in Morristown.  Rotary is not only about service, it's also about fellowship and long lasting relationships.  
Denville Rotary was very happy to resume our annual community service project collecting school supplies for the new school year.  Through the generosity of Denville Rotarians and friends, we donated over $500 in much needed supplies.  No child should begin the school year without being prepared with the necessary tools.  All items were delivered to, and will be distributed through, the Denville Department of Social Services. Thank you to all who contributed to this valuable project.  Pictured are Rick Rafferty, Betsy Roberts and Mary Radicsh.
We had another great Rotary Blood Drive with 71 units of blood collected.  In the first eight months of this year, Denville Rotary and Denville Sunrise Rotary continued to sponsor the monthly drive and have so far collected 448 units of blood potentially saving over 1,000 lives.  Thank you to all donors from Denville and surrounding communities.  You truly make a difference!
 
President Patricia Agliata and members of Denville Rotary (June 30, 2022) present the Denville Public Library with a generous donation for the purchase and installation of a new drinking fountain.  The Library staff was thrilled to receive our gift.
Denville Rotary presents a $1,000 donation to the Beautification Committee.  The committee was established to stimulate the love of gardening, provide education and resources and to work for the preservation of Denville Township's beauty.  They meet weekly for planting, weeding, pruning and mulching of a particular garden area within the township.  This donation will help the Beautification Committee continue their work to keep Denville beautiful!
 
Congratulations to the newly installed 2022-2023 Denville Rotary President, Joe Paci, and Board of Directors and Officers.  During the coming year, we are looking forward to continued growth, successes and many contributions to the community.  It is with heartfelt graditude that we say thank you to outgoing President, Patricia Agliata, for her two years of exceptional leadership. (Please take a look at the Installation Luncheon photo album.)

On June 11, 2022 Denville Rotary, Sunrise Denville Rotary and friends gathered together for a joint service project with Morris Habitat for Humanity.  The home was constructed in sections at Roxbury High School and transported to Landing where it was placed on its foundation.  All volunteers were assigned multiple tasks, working during the final stages of construction.  Congratulations to the new homeowners who will be taking possesion in July.  (Take a look at the progress under the photo album tab.)
 
We are sending a heartfelt thank you to all those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes and on the scene to make the 2022 Denville Rotary Street Festival a smashing success!  A special thank you goes to Mayor Andes, the Denville Township Police Department and the Department of Public works.  Without their assistance the street festival would not be possible. Thank you to McCarter's Towing, The Gup, to our many sponsors and to all those who contributed in so many ways.  Thank you Rotarians and to your family and friends who so graciously volunteered their time.  Many thanks to all of the vendors who participated and to all who came from near and far to soak up the sunshine and enjoy the day. It's good to be back!  See you all in 2023!  (Take a look at the photo album slideshow on the right.)
