Asbury Park Rotary Celebrates 100 Years!
 
On Saturday, April 13, 2019 The Asbury Park Rotary celebrated its Centennial Celebration
at Deal Golf & Country Club, Deal, NJ. 
 
This event was a celebration of 100 years of service to Asbury Park and Monmouth County communities.  
 
Thank you to all of our sponsors!  The event raised over 425,000 for our Scholarship Program and our local veterans projects.
 
 

Scholarship Program 

Each spring we invite local high school students from surrounding areas to participate in the scholarship program. This program is a vocational service activity of our club that assists and encourages high school seniors of Asbury Park, Neptune, Ocean Township and Academy Charter High Schools to pursue a post-secondary education with an emphasis on service to the community. Each year, we award scholarships to students of the four high schools. 
 

Asbury Park Rotary Foundation Veterans Program 

Throughout the year the Asbury ParkRotary Foundation sponsors and supports several events honoring the hundreds of veterans in our community. Events include: Bus Trip to Washington, Veterans Day Luncheon, and Memorial Garden in Asbury Park.
 
Stories of Asbury Park Rotary in Action

We're collecting adult and kids bikes and sewing machines to send to Tanzania, Gambia and Guatamala.  Do your part to put unused bikes and sewing machines to good use in the developing world.

Bikes should be rust free.  No children's trikes, but bikes with flat tires in need of some repair are accepted.  Portable sewing machines should be in working order.

For more information contact Sean 908-884-067

National Wreaths Across America Day is Saturday December 14, 2019
The Asbury Park Rotary will be supporting Wreath’s Across America this year at Mount Calvary Cemetery Rt 66 Neptune with a ceremony open to the public at 12 P.M. We encourage the public to come out and join our members at the wreath laying ceremony as we will place 385 wreaths on each veteran’s grave to Remember those who fought and died for our freedom’s, to Honor their sacrifice and to Teach our children about the true costs of freedom.
 
About Wreaths Across America.
Wreaths Across America is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded to continue and expand the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery begun by Maine businessman Morrill Worcester in 1992. The organization’s mission – Remember, Honor, Teach – is carried out in part each year by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies in December at Arlington, as well as at hundreds of veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond.

Rotary Club of Asbury Park members served as the Caring Cooks for the Ronald McDonald house in Long branch on July 9th 2019, serving up grilled hamburgers, hotdogs, sausage, salad with watermelon. The Ronald McDonald House hosts families who have children being cared for at Monmouth Medical Center. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, the Ronald McDonald House provides a place for families to call home so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little to no cost. By cooking a meal,  our Rotary volunteers made it just a bit easier for families to focus on their child's health.  Great job!
President Brian Mullins thanks our speaker, Mr. Alan Stein from the Vorhees Twp. breakfast Rotary Club. Alan got lost coming to our meeting so his talk was brief but informative. He spoke about “Josh the Otter” program detailing preventative measures for infant drowning. He will try and come back next May for a full presentation.
This week's meeting was Sean's last as the 100th President of the Rotary Club of Asbury Park. We know that Sean's family has a long history of service as Rotarians, and we say Thank You for a memorable year. We look forward now, to supporting Brian as the 1st President for our 2nd 100 years -  Good Luck Brian - we will work together to make it a great year!
