Whats New...
September 8, 2023 Rotary Club Meeting

Location:  Brother Restaurant in Red Bank

Speaker:  Christopher Shinn
We have a small but mighty lunch.  
As usual, we started with the Pledge of Allegiance followed by the Four Way Truth, followed by our Meditation (we held a moment of silence in memory of the passing of the sister/sister-in-law of our past District Governor, Chuck & Mary Watson.)  Bill Dickenson collected Happy Dollars (All Happy Dollars)!!  
Joe Greca reminded all that on September 14th Stephen T.  will be inducted as our Newest Red Bank Rotary Club Member!!  Please don't miss this event!!!  
This was our first at The Brothers Restaurant and Chris was our  guest speaker.  He shared that after speaking with Rotary Club 5000 in Hawaii, they have come up with a board game drive to support the children who are affected by the devastating fires.  So, we are asking our members to help support his amazing cause.  He also talked about joining efforts to host a golf outing and so I will connect Jay and Chris to discuss such a possibility at Trump Golf Course.  Lastly, he shared more information on how we can drive support from our local community to sponsor events and need for our Club and the community.  He provided samples of forms that we can prepare and hand out to banks, big box stores, etc., who are always willing to support non-profit organizations in their community.  He is a wealth of information and would love to engage more with the Red Bank Rotary Club.
Announcements and Lots of them:
1)  PICNIC - We have our Rotary Picnic on September 21st from 5-7 at our Past President, Jay Schwartz's, home.  He and his lovely wife, Meghan will be hosting this event.  Please RSVP as soon as possible, so we can get a pretty good count.  Of Note:  The Club member who brings the most guests, will receive their next Rotary Luncheon paid for.
2)  We have received permission to "plant" the flags at Riverside Garden Park for BOTH weeks of Veterans and Memorial Days.  Let's start selling FLAGS:  Cost is $100 for one event $150 for Both Events.  A commemorative keepsake will be sent to each sponsor.
3)  Lombardi Dinner:  March 21st.  Need Sponsors, Page Ads sold, etc.  More to come after our Committee Meeting on Sept. 11 at 6 p.m. Please reach out to Alex or Ellie for information.
4)  We have confirmed Santa Letters and Calls with the Parks and Rec Center so Jay is all over that!
For those who missed us at The Brothers Restaurant, you missed out on the pitcher of beer our President provided for our members and guests!
Most Sincerely,
Ellie Tava
The Red Bank Rotary has received permission to sponsor the Field of Heroes Event for Memorial Day week in Riverside Gardens Park. We will exhibit 100 American flags the week before Memorial Day, including Memorial Day itself. The Rotary will acquire 100 sponsors to memorialize, honor, or commemorate their specific Hero by flying an American flag for each one. A name card with their Hero’s name and sponsor’s message will be attached to their individual flag.
The Red Bank Rotary will label each flag with its Hero’s name, install it at the beginning of the week, and remove it the day after Memorial Day. 
HERE is a YouTube video that may answer some of your questions and show what the flags look like as a group. 
                                Do you have a hero you would like to honor?
             How about a:
            Fallen Serviceman or woman?                        Active Military?
            9/11 Victim?                                           First Responder?
            Teacher, Professor, Mentor?                        Humanitarian?
            Veteran?                                                         Parent?
The Red Bank Rotary will fly an American flag in Riverside Garden Park the week leading up to Memorial Day, including Memorial Day itself for a $55.00 donation to the Red Bank Rotary Foundation. You may also write a message on a 4 x 6 card that will be attached to the flagpole.
Directions:  Each sponsor must fill out an application that includes a 4 x 6 area in the bottom half of the page. That area is for the handwritten message or details about their hero. Examples are provided on a separate page. Leave the ½ inch box in the middle of the card empty, so that we may print the heroes name in it. The heroes name should be printed (all caps) in the designated blank on the top half of the application.
