"DEDICATED IN GRATEFUL AND LOVING TRIBUTE TO ALL WHO SERVED IN THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES TO DEFEND THEIR IDEALS AND PAVE THE WAY FOR PEACE"
 
President Patricia Agliata places a wreath near the Obelisk at Veteran's Memorial Garden as a fellow Rotarian raises and lowers the flag. 
It is Denville Rotary's annual tradition to celebrate the memory of all those who served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America.
 
On May 27, 2021 Denville Rotary, along with Denville Sunrise, enjoyed the great outdoors with a nature walk in Jonathan's Woods led by Dave Blinder.  Dave Blinder is a Denville resident and serves on the Board of Trustees for POWWW (Protect Our Water Wetlands and Woods).  The mission of POWWW is to protect wetlands, woodlands and potable water supplies throughout the Beaver Brook watershed in Denville, Rockaway and Boonton Township.  They identify and support land acquisition, provide site stewardship and provide public education programs.  Dave spoke about the history of the area, the wildlife and how the preserve came to be.  It was a great experience enjoyed by all!
Congratulations to our very own Michael Boudway for being a Third Prize Winner in this year's District Raffle!
The seventh annual Rotary District 7475 Raffle drawing was held on May 27, 2021.  Total receipts were $119,600 which was $50,000 more that last year.  Fifty-two clubs and five outside organizations participated.  Congratulations to all of the lucky winners!  To see the complete list of winners, visit the Rotary District 7475 website.
 
A special thank you goes out to all of our Denville Rotary members who purchased tickets and a very special thank you to BETSY ROBERTS for chairing this fundraising event for our club.  As a result of her efforts, a portion of the funds will come back to Denville Rotary.  Well done Ms. Betsy!
What a fantastic night for Denville Rotary and some very special people!  On May 20th at Cafe Navona, we held our annual awards event and inducted five new members into our Rotary family.  (Please take a look at the photo album on the right.)
 
The recipient of the Claude Dickerson Recognition Award, Denville Rotary's most coveted award, is Diane Grabowski.  Diane became a Rotarian in October, 2019 and has since made many significant contributions not only to Rotary but also to events which greatly benefited the community.  She  lives by Rotary's Four Way Test and exemplifies our motto of "Service Above Self."  Congratulations Diane!  You are very deserving of this recognition!  Pictured with Board Member Mary Radicsh.
The recipient of the Citizen of the Year Award is Michael Anderson for his many outstanding contributions to the community.  Pictured here with President Patricia Agliata and Secretary Betsy Roberts.
The recipient of the Vocational Service Award is William Connelly.  Bill is an attorney, who through his vocation, has dedicated many years of his professional expertise to serving and mentoring others.  Notably, under his mentorship, the Mendham High School Mock Trial Team has won numerous NJ state first place awards as well as national awards.  Bill is President of Mendham Rotary.  Pictured with Board Member George Hrobuchak.
​​​​​​Our newly inducted Denville Rotary members, pictured left to right, are Andrew Agliata, Peter Zablocki, Vicki Harrison, Rich Lehmkuhl and Brigitte Mesa.  We are so happy you joined us and look forward to many years of service and fun times together.  Welcome!
The Rotary Club of Denville prides itself on its service to the community.  Our Denville Rotary Paper Goods and Toiletries Social Services Project was a resounding success due in large part by the overwhelming giving spirit of its Denville residents who answer the call of the needs of our community.  We appreciate the support!
 
On behalf of Denville Rotary, I extend my thanks to the residents and neighbors who never disappoint in their generosity.  To our members, thank you for your Service Above Self.  We had a great day embracing the opportunity to serve.

COMMUNITY ALERT!
 
Rotary Street Festival
 
Regretfully the Rotary Club of Denville will not hold the annual 2021 Rotary Street Festival.  We feel it necessary to take this step to protect our community and our volunteers.  This event, which yearly ushers in the summer season, has been our main fundraiser and we are saddened to have to cancel this special event.  Your support over almost 40 years has been extraordinary and much appreciated.  We thank you and look forward to 2022, when we can all celebrate Rotary and our great community!  Save the date, June 5, 2022.  We will be looking for you!
The Denville Rotary Club in partnership with Denville Sunrise Rotary are thrilled to collaborate on this community project.  We also worked in partnership with the Housing Authority and Denville Social Services to refurbish the Peer Place Basketball Court which is located on the property of the affordable housing complex here in Denville.  Click below to see additional photos.
Denville Rotary and Denville Sunrise Rotary are again hosting their monthly Blood Drive on Wednesday, November 18th.  Please see details on the flyer below and donate if you can.  There is a critical shortage.  THANKS FOR GIVING!

Santaland Community Alert
 
To protect our community, our volunteers and especially Santa, The Rotary Club of Denville regrets that Santa will remain at the North Pole this year. We are especially sorry because this was to be our 60th anniversary celebration!   Children may drop off their letters in Santa’s mailbox. He will have plenty of time to answer and remember, please add your return address!!
Sadly, we have also canceled our traditional tree lighting event. Although we won’t have in person Santa visits or events, please do come to Santaland and enjoy the magic of the Holiday Season. Santaland will be fully decorated as always!  When you do visit and we hope you will, please maintain social distancing and wear a mask.
 
Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and
Happy Holiday Season!
