Why did I join rotary? That is a great question. I was away from New Jersey 8 years while I was finishing my law degree, and the moved to Maryland to practice law, but I knew that eventually, I would make it back to New Jersey. Finally, when I moved back, I didn’t have many professional acquaintances, so I was looking to join an organization, but giving back was always something important for me, so I wanted to find an organization that could do both things. And it so happened that when I went to open my bank account for my firm, I met my banker, Luke, who was a member of Rotary and had told me that there was another fellow attorney that I should meet, especially since I didn’t really know many professional people and was new to the area. He introduced me to the current President-Elect, Janet. Upon meeting with Janet and her telling me more about Rotary and the Street festival and realizing how much Denville Rotary does, I took an interest in coming to a meeting to check it out. It was from there that I decided that I wanted to get involved.  Sadly, I don’t think many people know what Rotarians do, and most think that we are a business organization and that we get paid. But we don’t, all of us are volunteers who donate our time and efforts in trying to help better the world.

Denville Rotary has partnered with the Denville Township Police Department to bring Police Trading Cards to Denville.  Officers of Denville Rotary, Mary Radicsh, Rita Ambrosi and Betsy Roberts, presented the idea to Police Chief Christopher Wagner in late September, 2016 and were met with great enthusiasm and support.  Chief Wagner indicated he wanted to make the Trading Card Program available but had not yet found a vehicle to do so.  The perfect partnership was formed.  The program is well underway.  Officers have submitted their biographies, all officer photos have been taken by Jody Johnson of Glide by JJ and an exciting kickoff event is being planned.

Music has been an important part of leading an ordinary life for students at the Music School for Children With Disabilities in Honor of Paul Harris in Lublin, Poland. Founded by Rotary members, the school serves 20 students with various disabilities, including Down syndrome, autism, and visual impairments. The Rotary Club of Lublin-Centrum-Maria Curie-Sklodowska has provided funding with help from Rotary Foundation Matching Grants and the Henryk Wieniawski Musical Society, which houses the school.
 
After their son Mateusz was born with underdeveloped eyes, Mariusz and Joanna Kania looked for ways to help him be active. When he showed an aptitude for music, they looked for a teacher and were thrilled to find the Paul Harris music school.

For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.
 
After serving her time, Bianca sought help from a local homeless organization, A Safe Haven, and moved to its shelter in the Rogers Park neighborhood. Bianca followed the program closely -- she attended all the required meetings, passed drug tests, and volunteered at every opportunity.

What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

A highlight for the team was greeting the chief of Sagadugu. The team got excited about buying goats and food for children in the villages where I support eight churches. It was good to see the pastors of most of the eight churches, and I had to explain that we were just passing through on our way to Bolgatanga.

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
 
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
