ROXBURY, NJ - The Roxbury Rotary Club this week agreed to give money to Project Glow Gold, an effort, founded by several Roxbury High School students, that is collecting small items for children fighting cancer.

The club, at its Thursday luncheon, voted to donate $200 to the effort after hearing presentations by two of its creators, Madison Ketch and Jessica Bartelloni.

"They actually put together a plan and they developed a cause, something that can actually make a difference," said Roxbury Rotarian Steve Alford in introducing the students to the club.

The students are gathering items such as coloring books, crayons, fuzzy socks, lip balm, anti-nausea wristbands, magazines, books, puzzles, reusable water bottles, stress balls and chewing gum. The items will be given to pediatric cancer patients at several area hospitals.

"We're getting in touch with the local schools, clubs, communities just to see if they'd be willing to either collect items or give us donations for shipping, gift wrap and that kind of stuff," Ketch told the Rotarians.

In other business, the Rotary Club inducted as its newest member Roxbury Councilwoman Jaki Albrecht. Alford said he believes Albrecht will be a very important part of the organization, given her background. 

"You've obviously done many great things in your life," he told her. "You volunteer. You immerse yourself in the community. Your goal seems to be at all costs to help others ... You have amazing energy, enthusiasm and you seem to be friendly."

"Don't ask my kids," joked Albrecht.

Necessary Discussion and Debate of Addressing School Violence

June 10, 2018

Dear Editor,

As of late, due to most disturbing acts of violence against children in our schools, there is much vigorous debate regarding gun control and protection of our children and grand-children.

Much of the debate is based on emotion rather than reasoned thought.

I think that exploration in three areas needs to be more thoroughly discussed and debated. The first is ...
