What are some of the other Rotary Welfare activities
 
Conratulation to Ivett Tejada, Pequannock Valley Rotarian, truly dedicated to “Service above Self”, as she was sworn in as part of the group of the 2017 Spring class of CASA  volunteers by Judge Yablonsky in Patterson New Jersey as a Court Appointed Special Advocate. Volunteer Advocates work with kids, thrown into the courts system, to ensure the court represents their best interest.

WHEELS OF HOPE,” OUR WHEELCHAIR RECYCLING PROJECT: We have picked up 24 wheelchairs towards our goal of 50 for the year. PV Rotary is working with Joni and Friends to collect, refurbish and deliver wheelchairs to other countries. Please let your friends and neighbors know of our effort. If you have a non-electric wheel chair that is no longer needed, it may be dropped off at Physical Therapy Services, 715 Newark Pompton Tpk., Pompton Plains, New Jersey 07444. Contact: Eric Jackowsky 973-835-6115. If you need Pequannock Valley Rotary to pick it up, please contact: DougCook123@optonline.net 973-809-1502 Some living alone do not feel comfortable in having strangers come to their homes, so Erick will arrange for one of the women from his office to make the pickup!
