The Phillipsburg Club held a "Rotary Informational Dinner" on Wednesday, November 10 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. 45 individuals were in attendance: 18 Phillipsburg Rotarians, 3 District Leaders and 24 guests. The overarching goal of the evening was to increase membership by having various club members talk about the what the Rotary does, what the Rotary is, our local initiatives, service projects and the foundation. Hopefully attendees were inspired enough to join the Rotary. Pictured are three local leaders, Club President Todd Tersigni, Club President-Elect Marian Trapani and PDG Frank Geraghty, along with District Governor Shelby Rhodes, District Chief of Staff Mark Hartmann and District Major Gifts Chair Jeannie Tsukamoto.

A total of 300 full-sized American flags affixed with personal messages to local heroes are flying in a stunning and moving visual display in Hamilton.
The Rotary Club of Robbinsville Hamilton is conducting its second annual Flags for Heroes campaign, Nov. 1-19, on the grounds of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. The inspirational program was chaired by Bill Coleman, who is also the Assistant District Governor for Rotary District 7475.
Flag sponsorships were purchased by area residents and businesses through the Club to honor heroes in their lives, including members of the military, COVID-19 essential workers, family members, first responders, and others. Medallions with heartfelt messages from the sponsors to their heroes are attached to each flag. The patriotic display stretches the length of a football field.
Club President Joe Bellina led a ceremony and community celebration on Nov. 6, less than a week before Veterans Day, with nearly 100 attendees and included speakers from the Mercer County Military Action Council (MCMAC) and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. A professional singer performed the National Anthem and a bugler played Taps. A portion of the proceeds from flag sponsorships will be provided to MCMAC to help active service members travel home for the holidays.
The program was videotaped and posted on YouTube.
