The Rotary Club of Branchburg’s collaborative partnership with the local veterans organizations are going very well. During the 17th Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Dinner and the Service of Gratitude, on November 17th, our club will distribute more than $70,000 to various local veterans organizations.
According to club president Julie Ann Juliano ” We call it partnership at work. Making a difference in our Veterans’ life with partnership with these fine organizations like: the Operation Chillout, the Operation Sisterhood, the Operation Jersey Cares, Project Horses for Forces, Welcome Home Vets, New Jersey Veterans Network and the FRONTLINE Arts”
Rotary has been transforming lives and communities for the last 113 years. To achieve even more truly transformational service, RI President Barry Rassin encourages us to think differently about our role in Rotary, and Rotary’s role in the world during the 2018-19 year.
According to RI President “Globally, Rotary is more relevant than ever before, and its potential for good is vast. Unfortunately, not enough people fully understand what Rotary is and does. Even within clubs, many Rotarians don’t know enough about Rotary to take full advantage of their membership in Rotary. We have opportunity to discuss the many different ways clubs can start or expand service activities to enhance the Rotary experience for our members”.
During the 2018-19 year, President Rassin wants Rotarians to “Be the Inspiration” for positive change, inspiring our clubs, our communities, and our organization to face today’s challenges head on, with courage, optimism, and creativity.
Our club is certainly making a difference in the lives of those veterans who need support. Our club was able to raise funds through our 2nd Annual Ride and Fly events as well as the Veterans Appreciation Day event in partnership with many veterans organizations. With the support of our Branchburg Rotary members, Rotaract members and many local business communities as well as several foundation’s support we were able to raise more than $100,000 dollars for the club’s community service projects.
Come join us on November 17th as well as celebrate 17th Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Dinner and the Service of Gratitude by honoring our Veterans organizations and other volunteers. You can register clicking here.
