Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club Hails The Rotary Clock


Rotary Clock
When Mayor Rich LaBarbiera decided that a clock would add to the Paramus persona, he turned to Paramus Sunrise Rotarian Mukesh Malkan. Rotarian Malkan set about raising the money needed and the planning required. It started out at needing $25,000.00 but changed.  The fact that it would be about $60,000.00  still did not phase Malkan. Although Paramus Sunrise raised the most amount of money, he went to the other Rotary clubs in town for support.  The result: A  Rotary town clock on the corner of Midland and Farview Avenues.

Before Mukesh Malkan started his campaign, he went on a long planned trip to India. When he returned, his club had already secured $10,000.00 for his clock committee. He then went to work and asked the other three Rotary clubs in Paramus to contribute, in addition to his club,  before going elsewhere to insure that Paramus would have a town clock.

Borough Administrator and Paramus Sunrise Rotary member Joe D'Arco contacted Mercedes and they donated a digital sign to replace the original Rotary Bulletin Board. That older message board required someone to physically open the case and manually insert the message. The new digital sign is controlled at Borough Hall and can be changed without too much effort.

Paramus Sunrise Rotarians gathered around the clock after their Tuesday morning meeting along with the Mayor and posed for a tribute to their Community effort. Club President Joe Castelano, President-elect Sophie Stone. Vice President Janet Pomante, Past President Mukesh Malkan and members Mike Molin, Joe D'Arco,  Sharon Maloney, Tina Apprich and Mel Fabrikant were available from this vibrant club to pose with Mayor Rich LaBarbiera at the clock and sign!

The club would also like to thank Paramus Police Chief Ken Ehrenberg, Captain Rob Guidetti, Sergeant LaGrone and Officer Dimascio  for ensuring their safety while they took pictures at this busy Paramus intersection.
