Bergen Town Center General Manager Inducted Into Rotary By District 7490 Governor


Meeting 4-24-12
Bassam Mhich, General Manager of the Bergen Town Center was inducted into Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club by 7490 District Governor Emil Geering. At the request of the Sunrise Club, District Governor made a special effort to be on hand to bring in the District's newest member. As always Emil did a masterful, impressive and meaningful job of educating this newest member while bringing him in to the folds of Rotary. The club members gathered around Mhich to welcome him into their club. President Gary Spivak commented that he was proud to accept Bassam Mhich as a member. Bassam replied that he hoped to be worthy of the status. Rotarian Sharon Weiss, who was visiting the club to explain RYLA, was thrilled to be a part of this auspicious occasion.

RYLA, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, is an official program of Rotary International and fully endorsed by Rotary District 7490. Sharon explained that it is designed for young people ages 14- 18 and 19 - 30. The reason for the two separate age designations is to address the varying needs and maturity levels. it is designed to bring out leadership potentials in the youth it selects and encourages them to be Rotary Ambassadors. District 7490 holds a weeklong seminar for RYLA candidates at a camp in Pennsylvania. Two members of Paramus Sunrise Rotary have been involved in RYLA. Mukesh Malkan had his son selected as a candidate and has seen him go on to prestigious Georgetown University. Another member commented that his granddaughter had been selected for RYLA by a club in another district. His granddaughter went on to earn the equivalent of two masters degrees and is currently teaching learning challenged children.

The upcoming Fashion Show on May 11th at Bergen Community College was the topic of a meeting held after the regular meeting. Spearheaded by Sophie Stone and Mukesh Malkan, the challenge of moving from their former location to the Tech building at Bergen Community College is being met with vigor and élan. Working closely with President Sherry Wilson of the Bergen Community College Rotary Club, they are preparing for the new challenge. Tricky Tray items and door prizes are still needed and Rotary members will gladly accept them. Individual tickets and full tables are still available should the public desire to help this charity event. www.paramussunrise.org  for further information.

The recent District 7490 Conference held in Washington, DC was discussed and member Tina Apprich prepared a montage of pictures of the group while attending this annual event. Signups were taken for the club's monthly International Dinner being held on Thursday, April 26, 2012. This one is being held at Matsu in Hillsdale, a top notch Japanese Restaurant. The club is planning a Greek International Dinner to be held June 1st at St. John the Theologian, Tenafly in conjunction with their Festival which includes Greek songs and dancing.
