Valerie Wafer, Rotary International Director 2020-22, spoke eloquently at our recent President-Elect Training Seminar (PETS)
"Rotary International is aligned to be ahead of the curve"
 
 
Nutley Rotary is a strong supporter of Nutley Family Service Bureau, and our member, Eileen Painter, Executive Director.
Rotary is part of the wider community answering the call to help out in these trying times. So proud to be a Rotarian!
Here are Linda's words, after helping out with the bread pickup and delivery today. They are way more eloquent than mine!
 
Throughout my life in Nutley I have supported the NFSB financially, but couldn’t volunteer because of my work schedule. Now that I am volunteering during this crisis, I see their depth of commitment to those in need & I see first hand how incredibly valuable this organization is to our community. Eileen is an overly remarkable leader, and the volunteers are hard working & dedicated. The businesses, stores, bakery’s & community members donating to the food pantry is highly emotive. There is much I will take away from living through this pandemic, but the greatest thing will be this........”there is so much good in the world....yes, it certainly DOES take a village Eileen, and our little village of Nutley rocks strong! 💕💕💕💪🏻#nutleystrong. 💪🏻
 
We had a great turnout for our annual donation dinner at Mamma Vittoria's. 
The atmosphere was festive in the warmly decorated room as we welcomed our guests to dinner.
Clara Maas and ShopRite were major donors and contributed greatly to our Car Show success, and we were happy to invite them as our guests.
The highlight of the evening was presenting our $6,000 check to the Nutley Volunteer Emergency and Rescue Squad.
They do so much for our community and we are thrilled to help support their work.
 
 

For nineteen consecutive years the Nutley Rotary Club has taken on a literacy project to donate a dictionary to each third grader in the Nutley Public and Parochial schools. Nutley Rotary has made this an annual project so that every third grade student in Nutley, for years to come, will receive a dictionary to call their own from our Rotary Club.

Members of Nutley Rotary shown here in Yantacaw School represented by Walt Smith, project chair, Sue Smith and JoAnn Scarpelli; Spring Garden School, Linda Buset, Ben Costa President and Dorothy Huey; Radcliffe School Ben Costa and Dorothy Huey and Washington School, Barbara Hirsch, Dan Carnicella and Charlie Kucinski.

We were pleased to invite the board of the Van Riper Restoration Trust to our evening meeting!
Dante Intindola, President, and John Demmer, Vice President, gave a very interesting and informative presentation both on the plans for the house as well as the history of the site. 
We also watched an entertaining video about Rotaract, a Rotary sponsored service club for people of action aged 18-30. 
We welcomed Avery Hart and Paul Mantell to our Rotary meeting to talk about their Maasai Girls Fund Project.
Avery, a Rotarian and Paul have so far managed to stop cutting young girls and selling them into marriage.
They have established an education fund and now the girls are going to school!
We are helping with this project and plan to hold a fundraiser soon to help sponsor tuition for one of the girls.
