BERNARDSVILLE, NJ -The Rotary Club of Bernardsville’s President, Cheryl Delgado, and President Elect, Al Swider welcomed to the Club new members, John Carpenter, former Mayor of Bernards Township, and John Malay, Mayor of Bernards Township, at one of its morning meetings.
The Club thrives on a membership of over twenty-five local residents and performs numerous outreach projects throughout the year, including an annual track meet for area middle schools held at Bernards High School, a dictionary project that provides elementary school children with their own dictionary, blood drives, soup kitchens, and more.
Held at the Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge at 07:47am the first three Tuesday mornings of the month, and at 6pm the last Tuesday of the month at a local restaurant, the Rotary Club of Bernardsville serves the communities of Somerset Hills. Rotary is the world's oldest established international volunteer charitable organization. Rotary Clubs are made up of people from all walks of life who work on projects in their own communities and around the world. As an active Rotarian, skills such as public speaking, project management and event planning are developed, and community service projects for the benefit of others are implemented.
Mayor Malay said, “One of the great things about our area is the high level of volunteerism by our residents. Becoming an honorary member of Rotary gives me a chance to meet with people for whom service to others is an important aspect of their lives.”
