Plans have been made for a club picnic to be held at the IBEW Local 164 premises on Saturday August 8th. Incoming member Cathy Libonati, IBEW caterer, was able to clear the date for us with Sunday as a rain date. The club is also planning to hold a pool party, part of its International themed dinners at the home of Rotarian Kelly Leitch. The one problem is that Kelly wasn't there to confirm her previous offer.
To start his new Rotary year, President Mukesh prevailed upon visiting Assistant Governor John Mosca to install Antonio Rosario and Jerry Horowitz as new members. While both had been in other Rotary Clubs, their preference is Paramus Sunrise Rotary! We welcome these two new members and Mukesh Malkan has promised us several more in the near future.
Nat'l-Sect / Head Coach: Ken O'Reilly of New Jersey Wave was our speaker. He was very impressive as he described the intent of NJ Wave and how they tried to build good character. The organization has been in existence over thirty years and uses different venues to teach their members. He mentioned places like Berkeley College, Bergen Community College, Lodi Boy's Club and the YMHA as local places used for instruction.
Ken derives some of his water teaching skills from the fact that he is a computer teacher at East Brook Middle School. In attendance at his talk were two of his students, Cassy and Christy Stone. Ken agreed with Sunrise Rotary's unofficial 5th question to the 4Way Test .. is it FUN?
