MANVILLE, NJ - Continuing with one of its longest running annual traditions, members of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough distributed free dictionaries to Manville’s third-graders at the Roosevelt School on Friday, Dec. 7, ensuring that all Hillsborough and Manville children will have easy access to a tool that will serve them well throughout their academic careers.
The Rotarians visit was in conjunction with the school's Historical Figures Day.
The students, who are learning about caring this month in school, were asked to look up the word “charity,” which Rotary Club of Hillsborough President, Greg Burchette, explained was key to the mission of Rotary.
Rotary brings together a global network of volunteer leaders dedicated to tackling the world's most pressing humanitarian challenges. Rotary connects 1.2 million members of more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas. Their work improves lives at both the local and international levels, from helping families in need in their own communities to working toward a polio-free world.
The Rotary Club of Hillsborough currently has over 35 active members from Hillsborough and surrounding communities. Members include business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. The Hillsborough Rotary serves the Hillsborough community. The Hillsborough Rotary Club meets every Wednesday, at 6 pm, at The Landing Restaurant in Hillsborough.
